Strategy

Tips

  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Use the scope at long ranges. Its high magnification makes it useful for precise aiming at these distances.
  • Try strafing while aiming to prevent enemies from hitting you when engaged in a firefight.
  • As always, you should keep moving while sniping.
  • The firerate is high for a sniper, meaning that it is possible to quickly kill enemies in 1-2 well-placed shots.
    • However, the weapon only has 6 shots, and one can deplete their ammo reserves if they are not careful.
  • Line up your shots to hit multiple enemies at once.
  • The bleeding attribute is useful for dealing additional damage to enemies overtime.

Counters

  • If engaged in a sniper duel, take time to aim.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Try to wait until the user is out of ammo, then attack while they are vulnerable.
  • Flank around the user with a shotgun or melee weapon and attack them from behind.
  • Avoid being caught in the open when there is a sniper, stick to cover and locate the sniper then attempt to countersnipe them with your own.
  • Flamethrowers and shotguns can be useful for quickly killing users at close range.
