Start Sniper

I, Kentaro Tajima, or otherwise known as Kentaro, land in the Town of Beginnings. 


The scene in front of me is just like a medieval fantasy town. 

Stones pave the ground, and the buildings are also made of stone. Carriages run around the area, while fruits and vegetables are being sold at stalls, and there is a large castle tower in the distance. 

Additionally, there are a lot of people.

People in various outfits, with various weapons and armor. 

Are they all players?

I guess they weren’t lying when they said it was a popular VR game. 

Now, I’m dressed in my novice equipment with clothes made of cloth, and I’m carrying a sniper rifle on my shoulder. However, it’s not a real one. It’s just a long gun, which looks like a rifle. 

Well… What should I do first?

Come to think of it, I don’t know much about this game. I didn’t bother searching up anything. 

Oh, whatever.

At any rate, I’ll have to see what the sniper rifle can do. This will be my partner, after all.


That’s why I go straight out of the town.

A meadow. It’s a field as far as the eye can see. I can see a few players who looked like novices. 


If I accidentally shoot the wrong person, I could get in big trouble. This game is a PK game, which means players can kill other players. 

There is a possibility that I will get involved in PKs later on. However, as a novice with no skills whatsoever, I would get myself killed if I get involved in PKs.

That’s why let’s go a little further. 

I go a little farther.

The field is like a thicket.

There’s no one nearby, so this should be good. There’s a lot of shelters, but I can check my shooting performance as I like.  

Conveniently, I spot a dog-like monster in the distance, or maybe it’s a wolf. 

Either way, it doesn’t matter.

Let’s give this a try. 

I get down on one knee and hold the rifle with both hands. 

I could hide and take my time aiming, but right now I’m just checking my shooting performance. 

Looking through the scope, I focus on the wolf dog…

And I pull the trigger. 

Unexpectedly, it makes a light sound, and the shot hits the wolf dog’s torso. 


HP gauge has decreased by about 70%.

Even though it is novice equipment, it’s incredibly powerful, as expected of a rifle.  

An angry wolf dog rushes towards me, but I don’t panic. There’s still some distance between us. One more shot and it’ll be the end.

I pull the trigger. 


Pull the trigger… 

The trigger… 

The trigger is not responding?! 

[You cannot perform that action during the cool time.]

[You cannot perform that action during the cool time.]

[You cannot perform that action during the cool time.]


A mere attack has a cooldown time? What about the rifle? Is this the compensation for the high power output?

Wait, wait… I didn’t know that!

The wolf dog is right in front of me.

It opens its large mouth and bares its fangs at me… 


Just in the nick of time, my shot pierces its body. The wolf dog disappears in a flash of particle light. 

Huff, huff…

That was close.

Can’t a sniper rifle fire continuously?

Oh, I got it now… 

In other words, it’s a weapon where you bet everything on the first shot.

If I miss, I’m done for.

When dealing with a monster, I might get a second shot. But if dealing with a player, it’s not going to be so easy. 

I’ll have to keep in mind that I have to finish them off with the first shot. 

I continue to kill unnamed wolf dogs for a while after that. 

What can I say…

This can be quite fun.
