Sniper Rifles Weapon Overview
Effective at Long Range
Sniper Rifles are best known for being able to dispatch targets at long range. Thanks to their scoped nature, you will be able to identify targets from far away, and quickly deal with them due to the weapon's high damage.
Low Fire Rate
Despite dealing high damage, sniper rifles have a low fire rate, meaning you will need to make your shots count! Make sure to aim for the head of enemies to instantly kill them before they spot you!
Use Against Long Range Enemies
The sniper rile is best used against enemies that are far away. This way, they will not be able to fire back at you! Fighting against close range enemies will be difficult since it is hard to aim and the weapon has a low fire rate.
Keep A Low Profile
When sniping, it is recommended to crouch or go prone. This way, enemies will have a harder time identifying where the attacks are coming from since you are a smaller target.
