Strategy

Tips

  • Unlike most weapons, it's more suitable as a utility weapon than an offensive weapon.
  • Use the scope to your advantage, try sniping from a high place and picking off anyone in sight.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • This weapon is very useful if one has a coordinated team since it allows a team member to be the designated healer, this is especially useful in gamemodes such as Raid and Siege.
    • If you become the healer, then it's recommended to keep close to the team to determine who needs healing.
    • Due to its range, it can be also useful for healing teammates from afar.
    • Make sure you protect the healer, since the healer can keep the team alive longer.

Counters

  • When using a sniper rifle, try to get into a position out of sight from the user.
    • If caught in a sniper duel, try running in and out of cover.
  • This weapon does poor in close range, meaning weapons such as shotguns and melee can decimate users within its range.
  • Try flanking around the user then use a Melee weapon to kill the user quickly.
  • If the enemy team has a designated healer, target the healer first.
