The Locus is a bolt-action Sniper Rifle in Black Ops 3. The Locus is a one shot kill to the torso and above and is a great sniper rifle for quickscoping and rushing because of it’s quick ADS time.
Important to note, similar to the SVG-100, the Locus does not have any aim assist so target acquisition is going to be hard for console players.
Recommended Attachments for the Locus are Ballistics CPU, Fast Mags and Rapid Fire. The Suppressor is also a great attachment on all snipers because it doesn’t negate the damage in any way.
- Damage: 90 or 1 – 2 shots to kill
- Recoil: Moderate to low
- Idle sway: High
- Rate of Fire: 52RPM
