Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle is one of the most powerful Sniper Rifles in Battle Royale, able to deal massive damage to a target and also being able to eliminate a player with full health and full shield with a headshot. It is, however, slow to reload, so it is advisable to carry a fast-firing backup weapon.
  • For when one misses a shot or only deals damage to the body against a target, an Assault Rifle is ideal to suppress the enemy in case they want to hide or run away to replenish health (if the situation allows for such strategy).
  • If a player has two Bolt-Action Sniper Rifles, they can aim at something, fire, immediately switch to the second rifle and fire again.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle is based on the Arctic Warfare sniper rifle family, though it is normally known as the "AWP" (Arctic Warfare Police), due to its popularity in shooter games like Counter Strike.
  • Unlike its real-life counterpart, the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle fits only one bullet in its magazine.
