Strategy[edit | edit source]
Since the Hunting Rifle doesn't have a scope, it is hard to hit long shots (+150 Meters for example), but it is very effective in medium ranged combats. You can try to start a fight with a hit, so the opponent starts with a significant lower health.
The bullet drop of the Hunting Rifle is very low, starting to fall at approximately 150 meters, similar to the Heavy Sniper Rifle, consider this while trying to go for a long shot.
Because of its bullet spread, reload time, and decent damage, it is the go-to-weapon for most players in sniper only modes and noscoping.
Changes[edit | edit source]
- In Patch 4.0, the reload animation was changed, instead of removing the magazine, a bullet is introduced in the chamber, most likely a Mauser Kar98k.
- After the Patch 8.00 Update, the Hunting Rifle icon has been updated and made smaller.
