A DC-15x Sniper Rifle.

"A well-built sniper rifle is a beautiful thing. Ours has two separate levels of zoom: 'Up-close-and-personal' and 'Hello-you're-dead.'"
RC-1207[src]

Sniper rifles were long-range weapons, either projectile or, more commonly, blaster-based. The purpose of a sniper rifle was to kill a target at extreme distances. A blaster-based sniper rifle fired a long beam of energy, capable of killing with a single headshot. Tusken Raiders on Tatooine often used projectile sniper rifles to take potshots at podracers. A sniper rifle was used by Zam Wesell to destroy her ASN-121 droid during the plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala in 22 BBY. Another was used by Aurra Sing during the Senate hostage crisis to take out Senate Commandos. A sniper rifle was used in a failed attempt to assassinate Satine Kryze on Coruscant by a Death Watch assassin. The Tenloss Criminal Syndicate was the maker of the notorious DXR-6 disruptor rifle, which, when fitted with a zoom scope, became an especially deadly sniper rifle.

In the days of the Old Republic, Aratech was notable for their highly-accurate sniper weapons.
