[edit] Modern Warfare 2

The Barret .50cal is one of the two snipers you start off, the other being the Intervention. It is semi-automatic and is the joint-most powerful of the Sniper Rifles available in Modern Warfare 2, having exactly the same damage as the Intervention. It has a higher recoil than the Intervention, which is a problem if you don't kill your target first shot, this is probably the reason the bolt action rifle, the Intervention is used more often. However, as it has a much faster rate of fire, the Barret is more effect at killing an enemy in close-quarters without using the scope.
