Ghost Recon Wildlands Snipers Guide

Snipers in Wildlands are ideal weapons for operators who prefer to stay out of combat. However, since things can get quickly get out of control, it’s always recommended to have a reliable sidearm.

There are two types of Snipers in the game i.e. semi-automatic snipers and bolt-action snipers. Bolt-action snipers require a reload after every shot, have more damage, and are usually one-hit kill.

Semi-automatic snipers, on the other hand, fire faster, have low damage, and are ideal for clearing out groups quickly. Finding a sniper in GRW should depend upon your playstyle and comfort level with a weapon.
