"Longblaster manufactured for high precision and power over long ranges."
— In-game description

The Valken-38X is the default weapon for the Clone Specialist in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II.


The Valken-38X sniper rifle is one of the default weapons for the Specialist. This means it shares the same statistics as the other default Specialist weapons for the other factions. This also means that modifications can not be equipped, which limits the overall potential of the weapon.

Being a sniper rifle, the Valken-38X is most effective at mid to long range, as it does not fare as well in close range. The Valken-38X is able to output faster follow-up shots and has less recoil compared to the IQA-11 and NT-242, but is not as high in damage per shot.

The Valken-38X is visually based on a hybrid of 1st generation FG-42 receiver and stock combined with an MG-42 barrel and heat shroud.
