"Sleek and inexpensive in design, the IQA-11 was the weapon of choice among mercenaries and bounty hunters seeking reliability over longer ranges."
— In-game description

The IQA-11 is a sniper rifle available to the Specialist class in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. It is unlocked after getting 50 kills with the Specialist class.


The IQA-11 is a powerful gun with the capability of killing the default classes with two headshots. Avoid close range environments with the IQA-11 and if you do find yourself in an undesirable situation at close range, switch to your EE-4 and take care of targets that get too close for comfort. Also, always make use of your Thermal Binoculars to set up traps and line up shots to be the most effective sniper on your team.

The IQA-11 is a very powerful sniper rifle. With the IQA-11's high damage, it is able to kill all the default trooper classes in two headshots. It's best to advise to get into a comfortable sniper position and take advantage of your Thermal Binoculars and lead your targets into a trap. The IQA-11 performs well against default sniper rifles, as well as the A280-CFE. The number of shots required three bodyshots or two headshots.

Using this blaster, it is likely you will be outmatched at close range. Avoid staying at ground level and avoid close range. You won't do much good in the open. One sniper rifle that can outmatch the IQA-11 in a sniper battle is the NT-242, which is capable of one-shot headshots on all default classes.
