Sniper rifles offer perhaps the most variation, rifle to rifle, of any weapon class in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Every loadout needs one, and you shouldn’t definitely have a collection of scopes and attachments for every sniper in your inventory.

In this guide, we list the 5 best sniper rifles in Wildlands: where to find them, why they’re so good, their stats, and where to find every scope and attachment.

M40A5

Where To Find: Itacua

You really should look no further than the M40A5 sniper rifle.

It deals a decent amount of damage, and is a good, solid stealth rifle to help you remain undetected.

M1891

Where To Find: La Cruz

You could upgrade from the aforementioned and move onto the M1891, which dictates a sturdier hand and eye.

It deals more damage and has deeper bullet penetration, making it a more efficient killer.

G28

Where To Find: San Mateo

This semi-automatic rifle comes with an impressive Rate of Fire for a sniper, which sees the accuracy and handling drop off a bit.

However, there’s good damage here, as well as high Noise Reduction, making it a great choice for a stealthy playthrough.

This is a bolt-action rifles with great all-round stats. There’s a bit of a drop in Handling and Noise Reduction is lower than you might hope, but it has fantastic Penetration and Accuracy.

The range is also fantastic, making it perfect for players looking to avoid heated confrontation at all costs.

HTI

Where To Find: Montuyoc

This can be an extremely tough weapon to use. Its damage and penetration are both near-maxed out, while Accuracy and Range are the best in class.

The problem, however, is that the is a long downtime between shots, so you want to make sure you take out your target promptly. This is probably a great weapon to take out heavy targets, so it’s good to have in your inventory.

I eat souls for breakfast and play Dark Souls for a living. Starting my second playthrough as Deprived class. I am better than you. At Dark Souls. And probably also life.
