Basic Guide to be effective at sniping.

  • When you spawn in, turn off the safety in your gun, and get a gasmask.
  • Secondly, get a shovel and more bullets, 3 boxes of PTSD rifles should be good for 30 minutes in the field. (You can get these in cargo)
  • Thirdly, when the battle starts build a trench to either flanks of the middle as these will give you advantages to your sniping point.
