Specially constructed or modified weaponry for use by sniper units, the term "Sniper Rifle" is used as a generic term that covers many variations on the theme of long-ranged precision infantry weapon, including various laser and other energy weapons.
There are sniper rifles which use solid slug ammunition - although, like other projectile-based weapons, they are restricted by heavier ammunition. The advantage the slug-thrower has over its light based opponent is that fewer enemies will recognize the report of the rifle, as opposed to a long-laser's beam.
