The '''Machina''' ({{pronounce|ˈmɑːkiːnə}} or {{pronounce|ˈmækɨnə}} {{respell|MAH|kee-nə}}<ref>''Random House Dictionary''</ref>) is a [[Steam Workshop|community-created]] [[Promotional items|promotional]] [[Weapons#sniperprimary|primary weapon]] for the [[Sniper]].

While this weapon deals identical [[damage]] to the default Sniper Rifle, it cannot be fired unless the player is utilizing the scope. Attempting to fire the weapon unscoped will cause a "click" sound effect in addition to sparks being emitted from the rifle's muzzle, at no cost to the player's ammo. A fully charged shot fired by the Machina delivers an extra 15% damage, can pierce through multiple enemies, and has a distinct firing sound. [[Building]]s cannot be penetrated, however they can be damaged as usual by a penetration shot that goes through a player. As a drawback, each shot fired has tracer rounds, leaving a faint team-colored trail in the air for a few seconds which, in turn, notifies enemies of the Sniper's position.

Not so smart with yer brain outside yer head, are ya?
The Sniper on piercing rounds

The Machina (/ˈmɑːkiːnə/ or /ˈmækɨnə/ mah-kee-nə[1]) is a community-created promotional primary weapon for the Sniper. It is a futuristic rail gun with a fluted barrel and a soft grip. It is styled after the Longsword 202 ERASER.

While this weapon deals identical damage to the default Sniper Rifle, it cannot be fired unless the player is utilizing the scope. Attempting to fire the weapon unscoped will cause a "click" sound effect in addition to sparks being emitted from the rifle's muzzle, at no cost to the player's ammo. A fully charged shot fired by the Machina delivers an extra 15% damage, can pierce through multiple enemies, and has a distinct firing sound. Buildings cannot be penetrated; they can be damaged by shots that have penetrated players, but the shot will not penetrate any further. As a drawback, each shot fired has tracer rounds, leaving a faint team-colored trail in the air for a few seconds which, in turn, notifies enemies of the Sniper's position.

A successful penetration kill, where a fully charged shot penetrates an enemy to kill another enemy behind them (regardless of whether the enemy in front dies), will trigger a unique fanfare sound effect audible to every player on the server, similar to the sound effect made by obtaining an Achievement.

The Machina was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam before August 26, 2011.
