The Dart Rifle is a single-shot bolt-action rifle that uses compressed air to fire darts that deliver a neurotoxin. It is available after completing the last weapon shop mission of Act 1 for the low price of 10 diamonds.
This gun is a bolt action rifle like the M1903, but unlike that firearm, this one has no magazine and therefore the reload animation runs automatically after each shot; this means that players can never keep the scope engaged after firing.
This weapon guarantees a one-shot kill. Also, it is very quiet since it fires subsonic darts and uses a stream of compressed air as a propellant. As usual, there is a risk of the target crying out and alerting other enemies if he is not hit in the head.
The dart rifle carries little ammunition. (1 + 4 darts in Normal up to 1 + 19 with the marksman upgrade or on Easy difficulty). Therefore, it is advisable to top off the rifle always should players come across ammunition.
It is an excellent sniper rifle when combined with the arsenal of a Silent Makarov 6P9 and a Silent MP5. Furthermore, with a camo suit, players can practically remain invisible to enemies at almost any range if players are sufficiently skilled. One can snipe enemies in guard posts from afar and they may not even be able to notice, making it a must-have for players that opt for a stealthy play style.
Although its virtually the only "silenced" sniper rifle with good benefits, the dart rifle deteriorates rather quickly. It will appear to be rusted and usually last about 15 shots before it starts to jam, making it unsuitable for long trips. This is most noticeable on Easy difficulty with the marksman upgrade, since more ammo can be carried (1 + 19 - the maximum possible in Far Cry 2) than the gun can actually fire. It is worthwhile to swap for a fresh one at the armoury whenever the opportunity presents itself.
