S.A.W.-Viper carries a giant belt fed machine gun and has the distinction amongst Cobra troops as the soldier with the most Joe kills ever (four), after executing the captive Doc, Thunder, Crankcase and Heavy Metal. It should be noted that S.A.W.-Viper, despite being armed with a weapon that can fire 1,000 rounds per minute, somehow only managed to kill four people before he was overpowered (presumably he asked those four if they would please stand very close together before he opened fire).
Most Telling Quote from File Card:
"You won't even know I've shot at you until you hear the sonic boom from the bullet whipping past your ear!" Yep. You won't know he's shooting at you until he f*****g misses.
Pathetic Weapon of Choice:
S.A.W.-Viper's weapon makes sense in his role as the Cobra's heavy machine gunner, and it carries some cool modifications like "cryogenic cooling," a sound suppressor and a flash inhibitor. This would allow him to pick off a flea at 800 yards with one shot, if it weren't for the fact that S.A.W.-Viper couldn't hit a battleship with an elementary school. Basically he has a light machine gun that stealthily misses every one of its targets.
Crowning Moment (of Ignominy):
After killing the four Joes, S.A.W.-Viper was on the verge of capture when he convinced Duke that he couldn't be arrested because he was "out of their jurisdiction." Somehow this ruse worked (evidently Duke's brain has a "cryogenic cooling" modification) and S.A.W.-Viper returned to a warm reception at Cobra-occupied Benzheen.
Quick! We need a name for a country! What are you looking at right now?
The Joes' Ninja Force quite literally crashed the party to avenge their fallen comrades, critically injuring S.A.W.-Viper which led to his eventual rebirth as the cyborg, Overkill. Shortly thereafter, Overkill was shot in the face alongside Cesspool (see Cesspool, above) by Tomax during a prison break. At least he got to have a party first.
