The Escher M41 was a primary weapon for the Sniper class in Blitz Brigade. It was formerly the first semi-automatic primary weapon available for the Sniper, and functions very similarly to the Velikaya. This weapon is an overall average weapon, as its damage isn't necessarily great but good with headshots. Its rate of fire, although semi-automatic, does actually take some time to fire the weapon in rapid succession due to a cooldown feature. The other stats are average; the weapon boasts an average and good critical chance, although the ammo capacity is rather low for its class. Overall, this weapon was a good starting sniper, as it was cheap to purchase and upgrade to premium and had average performance. However, in an update in 2015, the Escher has been removed from the game along with other weapons for several other classes. It is based on the German Gewehr 43.
