Sniper Rifles
Bolt action sniper new.png

Sniper Rifles were ranged weapons. Almost every Sniper Rifle used Heavy Bullets as their choice for ammo. They had a Headshot Multiplier of 2.5x, (except for one Sniper), and they were effective at Long Range. They were also one of the few weapons in the game that were not Hitscan. Instead, they fired projectiles and therefore had travel time and bullet drop although they had no damage dropoff.

Strategy

  • The projectile takes time to hit the opponent so you will have to lead your shot.
  • They are very powerful at medium to long ranges if you have time to line up your shot. However, they are not recommended for close-range fights because they have few rounds in the magazine and if you miss a shot, you most likely have to wait for a long reload time.
  • If you miss or do not kill the opponent with the sniper rifle, it is recommended to follow up with an Assault Rifle of some sort.
  • Practice aiming for the body first, as it is much easier to miss while aiming for the head.
