Last Adjustment Patch 12.00

Suppressed Sniper Rifle is a Sniper Rifle in Battle Royale. It is available in Epic and Legendary variants and has a head shot multiplier of 2.5x. The suppressor makes for a quieter shot, trading stealth for power. It uses Heavy Bullets.

The Suppressed Sniper Rifle was rotated out on Patch 9.40, making it currently only available in Playground and Creative. The Suppressed Sniper Rifle was rotated out to bring back the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle.

The Suppressed Sniper Rifle has been unvaulted on Patch 12.00 and had damage decreased from 105/100 /[ 100/95 but reload speed increased from 2.85/2.70 to 1.9/1.8. It, along with the Heavy Sniper Rifle, replaced the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle. It can only be found from eliminating Henchmen and searching Henchmen Chests at The Agency and The Yacht.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is suggest to use a Legendary Suppressed Sniper Rifle or the Heavy Sniper Rifle instead of the Epic Suppressed Sniper Rifle, since it does 95 body damage and requires skill to get a one shot headshot.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Suppressed Sniper Rifle, like the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle, is modeled off the fairly common Arctic Warfare Magnum (AWM) or the Arctic Warfare Police (AWP) with a suppressor attached to the barrel.
  • Despite it being in Epic and Legendary variants, it still deals less damage then the Rare, Epic and Legendary variants of the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle. The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle's deal 105/110/116 damage while the Suppressed Sniper Rifle deals 95/100 damage.
  • The weapon's reload was changed to use the Bolt-Action mechanism instead of a charging handle in Patch 11.0. This was to match it up with the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle.
  • The Suppressed Sniper Rifle keeps getting vaulted and unvaulted because of the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle, same for it too.
