The Vice is an automatic sniper rifle with among the highest damage in its class, rivaled only by the Dread Eye and the L.A.K., often capable of killing an opponent in a 1-2 shots to the torso, as a Prestige weapon, it also possess maximum armor penetration. In addition, the weapon's unique SMART mechanic gives it a dramatic increase in rate of fire when aiming down the scope, putting it nearly on par with that of the ASIX-338; while at the same time, the weapon has extremely low recoil when aiming, comparable to the recoil of assault rifles, making it viable even in close-range engagements if the player aims well.

It should be noted that the weapon is unable to equip muzzle attachments and produces a significant amount of flash when firing; it also cannot equip a scope with a zoom range longer than 10X. When hip-firing, the weapon's recoil is much higher, and its fire mode is semi-automatic, as opposed to fully automatic when aiming.

  • Very high damage
  • Maximum armor penetration
  • High rate of fire when ADS (due to SMART mechanic)
  • Low recoil when ADS
  • Low rate of fire when hip-firing
  • Less damage-per-shot than the Dread Eye
  • Inability to equip muzzle attachments or scopes with more than 10X zoom
  • Lower-than-average mobility


  • While the listed rate of fire for the Vice is rather low, the statistic is misleading as it does not take into account the boost in ROF which the weapon receives while aiming.
  • The weapon has been considered overpowered by many players due to its devastating combination of extremely high damage output, insane rate of fire, and minimal recoil, and in the hands of skilled players it can potentially go toe-to-toe with assault rifles in close-mid range combat. Originally, the weapon's damage output was even higher, and it could potentially kill in a single shot to the limbs, however its damage was reduced in nerfs by Gameloft; likewise, the weapon's rate of fire while aiming was slightly reduced.
