What is a Pimpernel Sniper Rifle?

Pimpernel is unique and the slogan used with it is “Sink Me!” which gives us an idea about how powerful it is. After a bullet hits a surface, there’s a second pellet that moves in a straight line and splits the bullet into 5 separate pellets. The bullets then move in a star pattern and can potentially damage the opponent considerably.

The best part about using this sniper rifle is that it gives a 100% critical hit buff and 50% splash damage which is quite interesting.
