The Ripper is a weapon solely appearing in the first Unreal Tournament.
The Ripper is a weapon primarily used to target the enemy's necks, inflicting an instant kill. The primary shot will bounce off of surroundings (but not people) for five hits before evaporating. The secondary shot will explode on contact with anything, causing small splash damage. Both shots will kill in 2 direct hits. The Ripper is deadly in closed spaces, but care must be taken not to behead yourself with it.
