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.
  • If an enemy survives the shot, finish them off with a Primary or Backup weapon.
  • It is recommended to equip a Melee weapon when travelling around the map due to its low mobility.
  • Avoid sticking to one sniping spot as users can track the weapon's lasers to its source.
  • Use this on tight corridors due to its Piercing Shot and Ricochet attributes.
  • A skilled enough player could use this weapon at long ranges due to the almost no recoil. The Ricochet attribute, if you are skilled enough, could be used to just shoot the floor or the wall to kill a user.
  • Use this to shoot around corners.
  • If you can shoot a player standing up against a wall, the laser might bounce off another wall hitting them once again.

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.
  • It fires a noticeable laser, keep an eye out for the source of the laser as it may indicate the general area of where the user may be.
  • 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 counter-snipe them with your own.
  • Flamethrowers and shotguns can be useful for quickly killing users at close range.
