Besides adding in an entirely new region and storyline with Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion, a ton of other new additions have come through. Take the new endless events to complete for example, which come with all sorts of rewards for clearing out enemies or making it to a high up locations. There are also new weapons, including one interesting sniper rifle. Here’s how to get the Sparky sniper rifle in Cyberpunk 2077.

Where to Find the Sparky Sniper Rifle in Cyberpunk 2077

The Sparky sniper rifle can be found in the Massdriver Facility, located in the southern part of Dogtown. You’ll know you’ve found it when you see a statue of a space plane flying away in front of a concrete building. Be cautious, as there are a lot of enemies inside who you’ll have to defeat first (unless you want to rush your way through things).

Once the enemies inside are dealt with, make your way up an escalator on the right until you come across a room with a camera in front of it. Don’t worry about the camera unless you’re trying to get the sniper rifle without killing everyone. Head inside the room below it, where you’ll find the Sparky sniper rifle sitting in a nearby container.

Is the Sparky Sniper Rifle Worth Using in Cyberpunk 2077?

The Sparky is a heavy sniper rifle that boasts the following stats:

  • Attack Speed: 0.37
  • Damage: 243.10
  • Reload Speed: 2.70
  • Effective Range: 82.54
  • Weapon Handling: 3.81

Alongside these sats, the weapon also has a 250% Headshot Damage Multiplier, 50% Armor Penetration, and a 30% Shock Chance. Rounds from the weapon also send out electric bolts when landing a headshot, but this will only work on enemies in close proximity. All in all, this makes it a decent weapon, if a tad underwhelming. In my testing, I only got the bolts to land once. I’d only suggest using it if you don’t already have a solid sniper.
