Turok Wiki

The Plasma Rifle is a weapon featured in Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and Turok: Rage Wars. It is a highly advanced sniper rifle which uses superheated plasma as ammunition and features multiple firing modes.


The Plasma Rifle of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is a large, futuristic rifle, complete with a scope on the top for sniping. It sports a black and silver color scheme. Its design borrows some elements from the Pulse Rifle.

In Turok: Rage Wars, its design remains virtually unchanged from its predecessor, though the scope has shortened and the grip has changed to a more traditional pistol grip. The rifle retains its color scheme.


Turok 2: Seeds of Evil

This is an essential weapon for long-range kills. Headshots are a one-hit kill while body shots kill in either three or four rounds. Sniper mode allows the player to make silent kills; nearby enemies are not alerted when the weapon is fired and victims will either be dead or run in pursuit of the player, who may be hidden in plain sight or far away on an alcove. The downside to the Plasma Rifle is that it shares its ammo pool with the Firestorm Cannon.

Turok: Rage Wars

In Rage Wars, the Plasma Rifle now features two firing modes: the standard plasma energy shot and "Sniper Mode." The plasma energy shot works the same as the Seeds of Evil Plasma Rifle. It fires a single shot which detonates on impact causing minimum area of effect damage. In Sniper Mode, while scoped in, the weapon will fire a continuous stream of rounds at a rate faster than that of the Pulse Rifle from Dinosaur Hunter, draining energy rounds quite fast.

The Plasma Rifle is unlocked by beating the "Crossroads" level in Adon's Single Player campaign, while the secondary "Sniper Mode" is unlocked during the Mantid Drone's Single Player campaign by beating the level "Hopeless."
