The Walther WA2000 is a sniper rifle developed by Carl Walther, which only recently saw a resurgence when a cheaper means of production was found.
In 1988 the WA2000, considered impractical due to the high cost, left markets with less than 200 on the market. In 1996 the Paradise Foundation employed some for the protection of clients in London and the resulting media coverage saw production renewed. As a standard the rifle is chambered for 7.62x51mm NATO but can also be chambered for .300 Winchester Magnum and 7.5x55mm Swiss, 10-round expandable magazines now also available.
The International Temporal Enforcement Agency adopted WA2000 per William Volt, who'd used it in the past. The agency has modified it to fire Type-7 darts, and uses it as the standard semi-automatic sniper rifle.
