This post is here for anyone asking: "What sniper-rifle is right for me?". Noticed ALOT of people making new posts asking about sniper-rifles, and which to buy, so I'm making one right now which will hopefully let everyone know what they want to know. Here is just some basic information(if you want in-depth coding numbers, click here), with some included pictures for the new guys, who, presumably, are the ones asking for which rifle to buy. Just think of it as going to the gun store. Enjoy!

Iconic Guidance System:
Dollar sign: Cost Efficient
Bullets: Fast Fire Rate(for class of sniper-rifle)
Clip with Lightning: Fast Reload Speed
Magnifying Glass: High Zoom Intensity
Cross-Hairs: Good Accuracy
Gun-Shot with Curved Line: Low Bullet Drop(it's good!)
Blast Fire with Lightning Bolt: High Damage
Clip with Plus: Lots of Ammo

Nice! This will help many begginers for sure Big Grin.

In my opinion with m95 is very good (i've bought it permanently with 25% discount last month) but it's very slow... In my opinion you should buy all of the snipers for 1 day and then choose the best for you if you're thinking about buying a permanent one Wink

*hint* I'd put staying scoped after each shot as a special perk for the ones that do (SVD, M14EBR, M110, VSS, SVU-A). *hint*

Before some updates ago bullet drop was not so noticeable and I made very easy kills with it specially with the SV-98 regardless of damage.

I got all types of ammo.

Well, if you fire the shot, and DO NOT release the trigger, you will remain scoped in for Bolt-Action Sniper Rifles, when firing at long range. Do not do this in a sniper-fight, the fastest rate of fire is most important in that case.

If anyone could please help:
Post the Permanent Play4Free Funds cost
Post the Permanent Credits cost

Your help would be deeply appreciated. Very much so. I own all of them, so I cannot look at their prices. Thank you.

Nice article man!
I already own the M14EBR, I agree with what you said about a bunch of ammo, the thing is, it has lots of recoil oh shots, good for close-quarters though...

at the M24 it says that it kills with 2 hits at any range, but
that its min damage is 48. that means that at max range it does
96 damage, 100 damage is a kill, correct?

I apologize for the misguidance created by this guide. You are indeed correct. My mistake is that I always use the +3 Version. I will fix it as soon as possible.

Bump on account of the new iconic guidance system.



Key(I'll try to make this better later!):
Dollar sign: Cost Efficient
Bullets: Fast Fire Rate(for class of sniper-rifle)
Clip with Lightning: Fast Reload Speed
Magnifying Glass: High Zoom Intensity
Cross-Hairs: Good Accuracy
Gun-Shot with Curved Line: Low Bullet Drop(it's good!)
Blast Fire with Lightning Bolt: High Damage
Clip with Plus: Lots of Ammo

These things are all good. The more icons the better!

Very nice guide. Glad someone went through the trouble of putting it together. But the message I'm getting (presuming all the numbers are correct) is that the SV-98 simply cannot be made to land lethal headshots at long range, no matter which barrel and ammo you use. Likewise the M-95 will always land 2-hit kills to the body and 1-hit kills to the head even without modifications. And the ones in the middle absolutely need mods to keep a similar level of lethality.

Behaving like a sniper has never been rougher.
