Description
Need to shoot the head off a dirty ol' rattlesnake at 100 yards? Then you, good sir, need a Repeater 1874. This lever-actioned rifle became an icon of the Old West, due to its accuracy and reliability.

The Repeater 1874 Rifle is a lever-action weapon in PAYDAY 2. It was added as part of Update #66 and The Butcher's Western Pack, and fits into the Sniper Rifles category.

OverviewEdit

The Repeater 1874 in-game is the middle ground between the power of the R93 and the rapid fire of the M308: with a rate of fire of 90 rounds per minute; the third highest out of all the Sniper Rifles behind the Contractor .308 and the Lebensauger .308, and the second highest magazine capacity at 15. This allows the Repeater to quickly deliver a series of highly-accurate and damaging shots at enemies, provided the player has good aim.

These benefits are offset by the low total ammo of the Repeater, making obtaining ammo pickups essential for sustained combat. With only 3 complete magazines, care must be taken to ensure that all of the user's shots hit, lest one finds themselves retreating to an ammo bag.

Due to its age, the Repeater also features some unique aspects: being lever-action, each shot is loaded one at a time, allowing for reloads to be interrupted shotgun-style which other snipers lack, and the lack of modifications for it: custom sights and lasers are out of the question, leaving the user with a silenced barrel, longer barrel and the unique high-magnification A5 Scope.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Second largest magazine size of all sniper rifles, beaten by Contractor .308
  • Decent damage
  • High rate of fire for a sniper rifle
  • High threat
  • Interruptable reloads
  • Armor piercing ability allows to pierce through enemy armor with ease
  • Good concealment for a sniper rifle

Cons:

  • Lack of modifications, especially sights
  • Unusual iron-sights, difficult to get used to for some people
    • Sights are briefly obscured after firing
  • Very long full reload

TipsEdit

  • Reload whenever you have the chance, as it reloads one bullet at a time, you can more effectively keep your reserves full compared to other sniper rifles, which require lengthy reloads.
  • Aggressive Reload Aced can be used to greatly improve reload times after landing headshots.

SkinsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The Repeater 1874 is based on the Winchester Model 1873 Lever-Action Rifle, which is an odd choice considering the cartridges it fires (all of which are technically pistol-grade rounds, and offered relatively poor armor piercing capabilites, if any) and historical use.
    • While the real-life M1873 indeed had a few scopes made for long range use, it has a relatively short effective range (~120m), which drastically reduces accuracy and projectile velocity further down range, and as such it is more commonly used for hunting small animals such as hare or deer, or for engaging unarmored targets. 
  • It is the only sniper rifle to not have a scope by default. It is also the only sniper rifle in the game to not be able to accept the Theia Magnified Scope.
  • The Repeater 1874 is the first lever-action weapon in the game, preceding the Breaker 12G shotgun.
  • The Repeater 1874 possesses two separate levering animations, one for hipfiring and another that can be observed after firing when still sighted in.
  • The Repeater 1874 is the second sniper rifle that can use iron sights, after the Nagant. It is also the only sniper rifle to use iron sights by default.
  • The Repeater 1874 is the only sniper rifle in the game to reload its rounds individually.
