This will take players 15 Battle Token Tier Skips if they aim to unlock this Sector straight after the first.

The devs describe the weapon as a hard-hitting “bolt action sniper rifle with .50 cal BMG ammunition,” using “tungsten sabot tipped bullets” that are “fast and powerful, but require precise shots over long distances.”

The Victus XMR arrives in the Imperatorium Platform, and unlike the other three weapons (BAS-P, M13B, and Chimera), it’s in a Platform on its own. However, new weapons may be added to the platform with later updates.
