The Hawkeye ramjet rifle is an anti-materiel sniper rifle appearing in Renegade.
The Hawkeye fires jet-propelled shells at extreme velocities, capable of piercing even the heaviest body armour and damaging military ordnance. In order to manage the extreme recoil, a piston is installed above the barrel, to handle its movement, while the bullpup design allows for a smaller size of the weapon without compromising accuracy.
The scope itself has a built-in night vision module and a directional microphone.
Available to players who purchase either Havoc or Sakura, the Hawkeye is a powerful anti-artillery and anti-infantry tool. It is also deadly against aircraft due to their light armor. Like all other anti-personnel weapons, this weapon did a pitiful amount of damage against heavier armor.
However, any seasoned Renegade sniper will always pick a Deadeye or Black Hand sniper, since the regular Pierce sniper rifle doesn't have tell tale tracer rounds. Soldiers carrying these weapons are often prime targets for their enemies because of their threat level against almost everything on the battlefield.
