From D&D Wiki
|Body Slot:||— (Held)|
|Aura:||Moderate; (DC 17) transmutation & conjuration|
This black bolt-action rifle has the symbol of a skull and crossbones on the barrel as well has the holy symbol of the Sovereign Host (Eberron) on the moonstone encrusted handle. It glows a silvery light whenever undead approach.
The Skull Sniper functions as a +1 Undead Fiercebane (Damage per shot is 6d6 and bullet costs 5non-leathal damage to conjure)Bolt-Action Rifle. In addition, 1/day you can fire a holy burst shot that explodes and deals holy damage in a burst. Once the shot hits an Undead, it deals normal damage and then explodes dealing 2d6+3 Damage in a 15ft Burst to all Undead (and only undead) within the area except the one that was shot; the shot explodes regardless of whether it hit or not.
Lore: Rykar, a good friend of Zyash that adventured with him, asked Zyash to create him a bolt-action rifle that could easily kill undead and could do a last ditch shot like his could. Zyash created the Skull Sniper which he gave to Rykar and the gun and Rykar became a legend as an Undead killer.
