7 Days To Die Sniper Rifle
The Sniper Rifle in 7 Days To Die is a very powerful ranged weapon. Add on a scope mod and you can take down zombies with a clean headshot! You can get this weapon by looting through Shotgun Messiah Crates, Supply Crates & Munition Boxes. You can also buy it off a trader if it’s in stock. It is also possible to craft a Sniper Rifle using the necessary materials and perk or by reading its Schematic.
Combat Using Sniper Rifle
Combat using the Sniper Rifle can be a lot of fun especially if you are hunting from a distance. This long-range weapon can take down even the tougher zombie types with a clean headshot. This ranged weapon causes significant damage from a distance, but it is powerful enough to take down enemies at close range too.
Unlike the Marksman Rifle which has a single-round, this one has 13 rounds so you can take down enemies without reloading. It uses the 7.62mm bullets and will reload automatically if you have the ammo. You can also manually reload at any time by pressing ‘R’
The recipe mentioned above lets you craft Sniper Rifle of quality level 1. As you increase the Dead Eye Perk, you will be able to craft higher quality Sniper Rifles. Each higher quality level requires more materials in order to craft the Sniper Rifle as shown in the table below.
|Quality 1||Quality 2||Quality 3||Quality 4||Quality 5|
Repairing A Sniper Rifle
The Sniper Rifle will deteriorate with each use and when the durability reaches zero, you will need to repair it to use it any further. Sniper Rifle can be repaired with a Repair Kit.
