PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds: How to Find Sniper Rifles

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the most talked about PC game lately. 100 players are thrown into an open map with no supplies or weapons, asked to find their own gear, guns, and survive. Long range weapons are the most useful in the game and from those, Sniper Rifles are the most dangerous.

However, Sniper Rifles are not that easy to find and they are a rare spawn. Everything in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a random spawn so there is no exact location we can have where a weapon of choice will spawn. However, a general location can certainly be helpful in finding the weapon you want.

But the first thing you need to do is mark the map before exiting the plane. This helps you know exactly where to land and hit the mark you wish to. Hold the alt button to trigger free-cam before landing and see if anyone else is landing in the same area.

Now, how to find Snipers? Well, just like other weapons sniper rifles are random spawns and some variants can only be found inside crate drops. But getting your hands on a sniper means an easy ticket to end-game.

The easiest sniper you can find in the game is the Karabiner 98 Kurz. However, it is also the most dangerous to search for as it is often found inside the military base. You can also try looking in Polyana settlements but again, these are dangerous places and a large number of players land here. The best course of action is to land and find a weapon, any weapon, as soon as possible. Loot the nearest buildings and find as much as you can before going on the hunt for a sniper. The good news is that both of these areas often host other types of sniper rifles as well, especially, the new 9mm automatic VSS rifle.

VSS comes with a suppressor as well as a scope built into it. All other rifles would require a separate scope so pick one up whenever you find one.
