The Escher M41 was a primary weapon for the Sniper class in Blitz Brigade. It is a semi-automatic rifle, and functions very similar to the Velikaya but with a slower rate of cooling down. This weapon is good for starting snipers, and also needs less diamonds to upgrade it to premium (only 10 that's less than the starter weapon for the sniper) as of the July 2014 upgrade. However, in an update, the Escher has since been removed from the game along with other sniper and some gunner, medic, and soldier class guns. It is based on the German Gewehr 43.
