The Sniper

The Cleaner's Carbine is a community-created secondary weapon for the Sniper. It is a submachine gun with a suppressor, a charging handle, and a folded in folding skeletal stock.

This weapon gains 8 seconds of guaranteed mini-crits that can be activate once the "CRIKEY" bar is full by dealing 100 points of damage with the Cleaner's Carbine. Once CRIKEY is full, the player can press their secondary-fire key (default key: MOUSE2) with the weapon active to activate a mini-crit boost for 8 seconds, which also affects the Sniper's Primary and Melee weapons. However, it has a magazine capacity 20% smaller than that of the SMG and a 25% slower firing speed, and it is incapable of delivering random critical hits.

The Cleaner's Carbine was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Street Sweeper".
