Mosin Nagant

The Mosin-Nagant is a sniper rifle, most notably used by The End. It is unusual due to the use of tranquilizer ammunition instead of lethal ammunition.

The Mosin-Nagant is a bolt-action rifle, the first rifle chambered for the 7.62 x 54mm Rimmed cartridge, that was first produced in Tsarist Russia in 1892. It was in mass service during the Russo-Japanese war in 1904, and later saw more action during both World Wars. While original models had no scope, it was first used as a sniper rifle during the Eastern Front of World War II; it kept this role until the 1960's, when it was finally replaced by the SVD.

The End with the Moisin Nagant

Although The End could have easily used an SVD, he instead opted for a Mosin-Nagant Sniper Rifle, which illustrates his age and his apparent reluctance to kill. The End's rifle, apart from being chambered for tranquilizer rounds, also replaced the normal stock with a paratrooper's folding stock and a pistol grip. Naked Snake can wield the Mosin-Nagant by defeating The End by stamina depletion. It is a very useful weapon for no-kill runs.

In 2014, Old Snake obtained a Mosin-Nagant scoped rifle from Drebin and used it during his operations in the Middle East to terminate Liquid Ocelot. The rifle was still the same and acted as a tranquillizer weapon.
