“ The Dread Eye fires tracer rounds coated in special polymers, allowing them to ricochet off of solid objects, if the user is patient enough to wait through a complete charging. „
The Dread Eye is a rather unique semi-automatic sniper rifle with a "charging" mechanism. The weapon features a solid rate of fire and very high damage for a semi-automatic sniper rifle, rivaled only by the X1-Morph's L.A.K. and the Vice - it is generally capable of killing even armored opponents with a single shot to the torso while aiming down the scope (while capable of a 2-shot kill while hip-firing).
When the player is ADS, the weapon will begin to charge up - when fully charged, the Dread Eye's bullets will ricochet off of solid objects up to 2 times-per-shot, which makes for an effective technique for firing around corners or into cramped areas where the bullet has a good chance of ricocheting and hitting a target out of one's line of sight.
In addition, the charged shots are capable of a 1-shot kill to any part of the body, however, charged shots travel slower than normal bullets (similar to weapons such as the ERG 10), so players will have to take this firing delay into account when aiming
