— Description

The Widowmaker (referred to as CheyTac in the game files) is a burst fire, bolt action sniper rifle appearing in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It resembles the Intervention from previous games except the barrel is also covered by the lightweight mold, and it fires in two-round burst mode before cycling the bolt.

Multiplayer Edit

The Widowmaker is unlocked at level 26.

The March 10th, 2017 patch decreased the delay between shots within the burst, allowing for a more reliable long range capability of the Widowmaker.[1]
