Red Rider Air Rifle can be found inside the [Winter Veil Gift] during Winter Veil 2009. it can also be bought in the toy shop in dalaran

Using the rifle on the opposing faction's leadership is the requirement of the achievement Money achievement BB King (Alliance) / Money achievement (Horde)


  • The rifle has a short cast time and like many other ranged weapons, there is a minimum range of 5 yards. The maximum range is 25 yards.
  • The rifle does not always hit the target, which is required by the achievement. Missing, however, will still aggro the target by startling it. Hit rating does not appear to be factor.
  • The rifle will sometimes backfire right in the eye! This will stun the player for five seconds and, like everything else with the rifle, is an obvious reference to A Christmas Story.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

In past years the main gift of the year had been permanent items, but due to this only having 200 charges (you can buy extra charges in dalaran) and has a world event achievement attached to it, it's possible this may be the gift given to players every year from now on. However the achievement could be transferred to a Feat of Strength.
