M-97 Viper is a Sniper Rifle Weapon in Mass Effect 2. M-97 Viper is manufactured by Rosenkov Materials. Sniper Rifles combine long-range killing power with lethal accuracy. The trade-off is that they have a slower rate of fire.
Rapid-fire military sniper rifle. Incredibly accurate and deadly at long range, these weapons are popular amongst infiltrators and assassins. Very effective against armor; somewhat effective against shields and biotic barriers. Upgrades the Mantis Sniper Rifle.
Rosenkov Materials developed this deadly weapon in response to the rising prevalence of kinetic barriers. While kinetic barriers still offer some protection from this weapon, its sheer power and rapid rate of fire make it capable of quickly killing almost any target, regardless of its defenses.
