The Farsight rifle is a Maian hybrid of an X-ray scanning device coupled with a rifle that can shoot through solid objects. The scope can lock onto and track life sources, though the device does not pan as fast as a running enemy can move.
The FarSight XR-20, often abbreviated FarSight, is a very powerful railgun that can fire through any amount of walls or other obstacles. It is considered the most powerful gun in the game, and, like the DY357-LX, will kill any enemy with one shot, regardless of any Shields or modifiers. 

The primary mode is aimed manually. Like the Sniper Rifle, the C-buttons are used to zoom in and out. The X-ray sight means the user can see, and fire through walls for targets. Be aware that while zoomed in, it is impossible to see things near you.

The secondary mode actively seeks out and tracks targets while aiming. However it does this slowly, and can be outrun.

Both modes are incompatible with auto-aim, presumably for balance reasons. In spite of this, many fans consider the Farsight to be one of the most overpowered weapons in a First-Person Shooter game.

Appearances

The Farsight only appears in the Deep Sea: Nullify Threat mission, used by Elvis and then given to Joanna.

Prerelease

The Farsight was originally called the z2020. An early trailer for Perfect Dark shows Joanna starting with it in DataDyne Central: Defection, shooting several DataDyne Shock Trooper with it, and then using its secondary mode to "erase" the computer executive in his office from above. There are also screenshots of it being used in DataDyne Central: Extraction. At that point in development, it used the same model as the Dragon does in the final version; this was likely a placeholder. It used assault rifle ammo like the Dragon. The z2020 only had an 8 round magazine, but fired as quickly as the Dragon does in its primary mode. Its secondary mode was the Rail-Gun Effect from the final version. It did not have a target locator function, but could draw a box around its target like the CMP-150.
