The BSW-460 Operator is a Sniper rifle that is a primary weapon in Valorant.

Summary

The Operator has the highest damage per bullet out of all the weapons in the game, making it a force to be reckoned with due to its one-hit-kill nature. It is also the most expensive weapon in the game at 4700 credits.

The scope has a dual zoom mode: the 5x can focus on holding tight angles, while 2.5x handles better in more open areas.

The weapon has a notably low fire-rate, creating a large window of vulnerability that allow enemies to easily retaliate. It is also the longest equip time weapon in the game at 1.5 seconds. Auto scope-in after firing a shot can be enabled from the settings menu.

Trivia

  • The Operator's design seems to be based on the Accuracy International AX50 with the magazine well and trigger guard inspired by the Barrett M107 and the pistol grip taken from the Barrett M98B.
  • Considering its name, it's implied the Operator is chambered in .460 Steyr.
  • On the default skin, the weapon's name is printed OPR47R.
  • Despite the Operator's and the Odin's heavy physical appearance, the Bucky and Judge are the weapons slowest to run with.
