Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Although the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle is not as powerful as the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle or the Hunting Rifle, its greater magazine capacity of 10 rounds makes it an excellent weapon to suppress the enemy at greater distances, and you have a chance to hit them again after missing a shot, but the enemy will detect you and start defending themselves.
  • Headshots can provide greater damage, but still lack power against targets with both health and shield at full.
