The vortex rifle is a new energy weapon which appears in the multiplayer modes of the 2016 reboot of Doom. Referred to in passing as a "laser sniper rifle," it can be focused to deliver more powerful shots at a longer range. The focusing process is done in the alternate fire mode, in which the wielder makes use of vortex rifle's optical scope.
