Strategy

Tips

  • It has X-Ray vision. You can use it to detect hidden enemies behind walls.
  • At long ranges, use the scope to detect and kill enemies more easily.
  • As always, don't stand still while shooting.
    • Try strafing while aiming to prevent enemies from hitting you when engaged in a firefight.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Take the time to aim first if locked in a sniper duel.
  • If you are skilled enough, you can use the X-Ray attribute to find a target then switch to a Wall Break weapon such as the Thunderer.
  • The healing attribute is useful for healing teammates.
  • 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

  • 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.
  • Don't try to hide, because the player will be able to detect you with the X-Ray vision. Moreover, even if you hide, try running and strafing constantly.
  • Avoid being in the open while users are present.
  • Use a high-damaging weapon to neutralize the healing ability.
  • If the enemy team has a designated healer, target the healer first.
