"2-round burst bolt-action ballistic rifle. Features a unique chamber stack for predictable two round burst fire and a lightweight mold for increased mobility."
— Description

The Widowmaker (referred to as CheyTac in the game files) is a burst fire, bolt action sniper rifle appearing in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It resembles the Intervention from previous games except the barrel is also covered by the lightweight mold, and it fires in two-round burst mode before cycling the bolt.


The Widowmaker is unlocked at level 26.

The March 10th, 2017 patch decreased the delay between shots within the burst, allowing for a more reliable long range capability of the Widowmaker.[1]
