Call of Duty: Black Ops Sniper Rifle

Sniper Rifles are generally weapons only used by players with a higher skill level, since they can often be very hard to use effectively. Call of Duty: Black Ops has a pretty good selection of sniper rifles, some of which can be extremely deadly if you can get past the slow fire rate and high recoil. If you can learn how to use these powerful weapons than you will top the charts, if not, well, stick to your SMG.

The PSG1 is pretty standard for a sniper rifle, with a low rate of fire and high damage. Unlike other Sniper Rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops, the PSG1 has a very quick scope reset speed, making it a little bit more versatile in tricky situations. Unfortunately adding any attachment will make the damage too low to kill in one hit, which can be pretty annoying. The PSG1 also has a small magazine, although that is normal for assault rifles. All in all, a pretty standard sniper rifle.

The L96A1 is essentially your classic AWP like Sniper Rifle from Counter Strike. Extremely high damage coupled with a fairly slow firing rate and terrible recoil, this is the sort of weapon that really hurts when you miss. However, despite all of its misgivings, it is still an awesome weapon in the hands of a skilled player, and is a pretty common sight in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Recommended for experienced players.

The Dragunov is one of the better Sniper rifles in the game, with high damage and manageable gun sway and recoil. Perks aside, the Dragunov has one of the highest damages of all the Sniper Rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops. The only real downside is how massive the actual weapon model is, which can be seen sticking out of a window from a long distance away, which always sucks

The WA2000 is one of the more interesting sniper rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops. First off, while it retains the high damage of other weapons, it has a faster ADS speed and handles much easier than the other sniper rifles. It is still a one shot kill weapon, although it cannot zoom as far as other sniper rifles, making it a more effective medium-range weapon. Probably one of the better options for players looking to bridge the gap between standard weapons and sniper rifles, which can often be hard to use.

  4. I love the sniper rifle and tend to gravitate towards it when I play shooters. Of course I'm a casual gamer, and whenever I do get a nice kill, I'm usually killed immediately after
