M-92 Mantis Sniper Rifle
 In-Game Description
Powerful sniper rifle able to take out most targets in a single shot. Incredibly accurate at long range, but rate of fire is slow. Effective against armor, but weaker against shields and biotic barriers. Manufactured by Devlon Industries, the Mantis is primarily used by police and planetary militia groups. The prevalence of kinetic barriers has made this weapon less popular with the military, but it is used more frequently in the Terminus system where these defenses are less common. Has great damage and accuracy with near instantaneous hit, offset however by its small amount of extra ammo that can be carried.
The M-92 Mantis Sniper Rifle is the default Sniper Rifle that the player acquires. The player gains the Mantis at the start of the mission to Freedom's Progress. Initially only the Soldier and Infiltrator classes are the able to use the Mantis. During the mission to the Collector Cruiser, all other classes are given the opportunity to specialize in using Sniper Rifles.
