The Phase Rifle is a sniper weapon similar to the BXT1 Rifle, although it has slightly different firing mechanics. It can fire unscoped without damage or accuracy reduction. Same as with the BXT1, its scope has 2.75x and 5.66x zoom settings.
Each shot will drain up to 90 energy depending on how much is in the player's pool. Its magazine holds 4 rounds, up to 5 with the 2nd upgrade. Once all ammo upgrades have been unlocked, the gun spawns with a full magazine and 32 remaining rounds.
It deals damage based on the energy the player has available, with a maximum damage of 510 at 90 energy. The curve for the damage output is linear, and is x*(55/9) if x is above 23, if not the damage will be 125 whatsoever, for x being the energy . Additional energy does not affect damage, as it is not consumed.
The weapon does not damage armored vehicles and base turrets, but will damage shrikes, light turrets and forcefields.
It is hitscan, but some servers may have hit registration delay issues, so aiming slightly ahead of your enemy may work better on certain servers.
