If you have been playing a lot of Battlefield 3 multiplayer and tend to focus on the recon class, there’s a good chance that you are trying to find which sniper rifle is best for you, and of course looking to get as many headshots as possible for that crucial marksman bonus.
We have a video to show you now which gives you an example of what can be done with a sniper, but we would like to hear which sniper rifle you are best with in your opinion, and the maximum marksman bonus in distance that you have managed to get so far.
The M98B bolt action rifles is one of the last weapons you can unlock on recon and many of you will probably feel that it is the best in the game, although it is pretty disappointing that it isn’t a one hit kill. Other popular sniper rifles include the SKS with its impressive accuracy and stopping power and also the M40A5 which is another bolt-action rifle and a classic favorite since it featured in other Battlefield games.
One video we have for you below shows off a pretty stunning double headshot on Operation Firestorm, performed with the M98B and just watch how the user racks up the points thanks to a 751 point marksman bonus. Since the recon solider has to bide his time and wait for the right shot, you can argue that he is at a disadvantage to the other classes as they’ll get lots of points for healing, resupplying, taking conquest points and so on. If you think of it like this – the marksman bonus is really important on the recon class so it’s all about the headshots – not an easy thing to do by any means.
What is your best marksman bonus as a sniper on Battlefield 3 and what rifle do you think is the best in the game? Are you a bit disappointed as well that EA DICE has made the best snipers in the game a one-hit kill? On a side note, don’t forget to list your best weapon overall and equipment here.
