Famously wielded by Ultramarines Scout Sergeant Telion, the Stalker Bolter is the hallmark of a Space Marine favoring precision over brute force. Depending on the specific modifications made by the wielder, the Stalker Bolter can serve as a precision battle rifle or a high-powered sniper weapon.
It is not mentioned whether the Stalker Bolter in Space Marine uses the sub-sonic Stalker rounds with the same name.
In the campaign the Stalker Bolter acts as the initial "sniper" rifle of the game. Push to hold, or toggle zoom will put the camera into a magnified scope view (which cannot be further zoomed in). The gun is semi-automatic , with a rate of fire almost as fast as you can pull the trigger. Additionally the weapon does not have a great deal of kick, allowing for multiple shots once a target is sighted, without having to adjust aim. The Stalker is best used to dispense with Shoota boys and Shoota Nobs early on, with headshots typically killing smaller enemies instantly.
The Stalker carries 10 rounds per magazine and 4 magazines in total.
