Battlefield 4 sniper rifles


Battlefield 4 sniper riflesBattlefield 4 sniper rifles are similar to those found in the previous games, as the game is set in modern times and features real world rifles and weapons. The Battlefield 4 sniper rifles range from faction specific guns, such as the SVD for the Russian side, and the MK11 for the US side. Players can unlock additional sniper rifles in Battlefield 4, including the M98B, the L96, and many more.

Battlefield 4 sniper rifles list

Battlefield 4 includes a ton of sniper rifles, both single-shot bolt action gun, and semi automatic rifles such as the M39. All Battlefield 4 sniper rifles are based on weapons currently in active service. Many popular rifles from previous games in the series make a return in BF4.

Battlefield 4 sniper rifles unlocks

Battlefield 4 sniper rifles unlocksLike all other weapons in the game, the sniper rifles feature their own unlocks, and can be equipped with more powerful scopes, laser sights, silencers, and more. Additionally, sniper rifles in the game can be equipped with bipods, which makes the steadier and easier to aim. The way to earn unlocks is to simply keep playing with the same sniper rifle. The more kills your earn, the more accessories you unlock. The most powerful Battlefield 4 scopes are usually reserved only or sniper rifles.

Sniper rifle scopes

Sniper rifles have access to some very powerful scopes in the game. Most sniper rifles starts with the base Rifle scope, but more powerful scopes can be unlocked. The Hunter scope offers 20x magnification, while the Ballistic scope offers 40x zoom. The rifles can also take advantage of the range finder gadget, which helps estimate distance and zero in the scope.

Battlefield 4 sniper rifles tips

Despite being long range weapons, Battlefield 4 sniper rifles can be very effective in close range as well. The semi-automatic types, such as the M417 and SKS, when paired with a short range sight and the the right accessories, can be deadly at close ranges. This gives the Recon class a lot more versatility, and an offensive role as well. dedicated sniper rifles are the only Battlefield 4 weapons suited for extremely long range combat, especially the bolt action rifles.

Some sniper rifles — the infantry marksman rifles such as the M416 and the M39 — can be used by all classes in the game. This gives each class a lot more variety and options, depending on the play style. However, these are not as powerful nor as accurate as regular sniper rifles, which are only available to the Recon class.

    someone please have a word with dice,hardly any change in weapons really,why isnt the msr in their

    • peter steff
      April 29th, 2013 at 1:13 pm

      because the msr doesnt have good statistics. and plus get out if your’e a cod fanboy

        Good statistics?? The remington msr is just an updated version of the remington 700 or the m40a5, it has a new body which makes it easier for the shooter to put accesories on it. The game takes place in 2020 which is the estimated time that the msr will see real service. Just because cod put a gun in their game doesnt mean the battlefield 4 cant.

        Another thing is, I don’t think this list is even real. Yes, the Scout Elite is in BF4, but the others, I’m very positive haven’t even been shown or confirmed in multiplayer or even singleplayer. So, I think this is just a list where they’re posting weapons they either HOPE to see, or EXPECT to see in BF4. Again, not trying to be a jerk, just putting out what knowledge I have of the game.

          I totally agree, I know for a fact that you can see the M200 intervention in the loading screen of particle storm, plus they claim to have three times the amount of weapons, and what is listed there is no where near that amount. don’t freak out, remember that this isn’t a dice run site, so these are speculations

        Good statistics? The SVD is mediocre at best as a sniper rifle, and yes, I do have rw experience with one.

        • FLGT12
          July 28th, 2013 at 11:51 pm

          SVD is a mediocre sniper rifle sure i can swing with that (based on MY personal experiences it may be great for skilled shooters,or those who simply prefer the round and how it reacts to wind, gravity,etc), but for ranges from 50-200yds it has a got heavy caliber, and excellent penetration, and unless the winds blowing like a bitch,the trajectory should be predictable,and it should be VERY effective at those ranges I am fairly accurate with the rifle, but past the 200yd threshold i start to slip up, and at that point i would of course prefer my Savage .270 or my .300 win mag Browning X-Bolt (rifles i shoot ALOT), I have shot the SVD, and it really is an effective weapon system, and its nice and accurate, except i really do not have much experience with russian rounds, I also do not own the rifle, but if an opportunity presents itself, i will surely capitalize on it

      It upsets me that people actually seem to believe anything this website says. None of this information was even available to whoever wrote this and they did a very un-creative job of using the exact same bf3 weapons and sprites to make this page, oh and the nice addition of a scout elite with incorrect real life pictures and a sprite that doesn’t match any of the others- totally legit.

        June 24th, 2013 at 9:12 am

        Then I got some good news for you maybe. I believe I heard somewhere that you can find the M82A1 somewhere in a map. But not as unlock.

    • Adude
      December 30th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

      There is the Hunter scope (20x) and the ballistic scope (40x). Both can use 14x variable zoom. Those are your long range scopes!

    • SpartanDuckie
      January 7th, 2014 at 10:32 am

      They have 50 calls over the map, but not as unlocks, because they would be overpowered and people would complain.

        June 5th, 2013 at 11:16 am

        He’s talking about a higher caliber barret but just if they add the cheytac m200 id be as happy as can be

      • Matlok51
        June 20th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

        The M98-B fires a .338 Lapua round, not as big as the 770 grain powder .50 Caliber Barret M107. Also, certain scopes will have zoom/varied optics. And, there will also be a range finder for Recon’s. And, Recon’s can us AR’s now, the guns like the SKS, the M39 EMR, and the Mk. 11 are no longer considered Sniper Rifles, but correctly as DMR;s(Designated Marksman Rifles), perfect for medium range, tight environment engagments.

        • George Conklin
          June 28th, 2013 at 9:58 am

          Yeah, I was gonna mention the missing Designated Marksman Rifles, too. Currently the M39 EMR, QBU-88 and RFB.

          The listing of QBU-88 (Type88) is incorrect. The Type 88 is the QJY-88, an LMG.

          I do not think the M417 has been listed/revealed anywhere besides here as a BF4 weapon.

          Not to continue on a case-by-case basis I’m aware of 6 Snipers + DMRs for BF4 and this page lists 10 Snipers and the site lists 0 DMRs.

          I’m sure the site admin will take care of this at some point.

    As far as sniper rifles go I would like to see dice introduce the Macmillan series say the tac-300 or the tac-50 and please give us a ghillie suit. If your going to keep the stupid 247 scope glare I want a ghillie! Even if I have to say give up a tugs or something or have to do assignments to unlock it, just put it in the game as an option!

    need a m24 and xm2010

    • Joeseph
      May 4th, 2013 at 9:37 am

      M24 is the same thing as the M40a5. The m40a5 is issued to the marine corps and the m24 is issued to the army, in the game the faction we will use is the marine corps so the m40a5. The xm2010 (or the msr), is an updated version of both rifles. Hopefully we will see the msr instead of the m40a5. But putting both the m40a5 and the msr in the game would be kind of redundant as they are both the same rifles and should have the same statistics, or it wouldnt be realistic

      • Matlok51
        June 20th, 2013 at 1:56 pm

        Capitalize the ‘M’ in Marine and ‘C’ in Corps please.

        December 21st, 2013 at 8:17 am

        Both the m24 and m40a5 are built off of the m24. They aren’t the same. The m24 has a ga precision barrel and way different twist than the m24.

  7. TaskForceGreen
    May 2nd, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    PLEASE make the Mk 11 have a bit more range than BF3 when suppressed. Not a lot more, but a bit.

    And PLEASE allow all bolt actions to be a one hit kill if they are hits in the center torso or head. At least, if nowhere else, do it in HC mode

    • Sean
      May 8th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

      i totally agree for a game that goes for realism, its hard to beleive that they would let a 50 cal to say the least let alone a.30 round bullet not kill someone with one shot in the upper torso, i mean if u cant get one shot kills without headshots then it makes a bolt action useless from anywhere besides long ranges, this is the only thing that i like COD about more honestly that in black ops 2 with the ballista i can go around with iron sights and get one shot kills with an upper body shot, the dsr in the game is anywhere in the torso area, i think COD does a better job with weapon powers for the snipers, now dont be calling me a COD fanboy, i like both games, but if the new battlefeild would have better damages for the bolties, i would have this as my #1 game,

      P.S.- anyone else into using iron sight bolties

      • Wyatt
        November 27th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

        If they went for realism, it would take more than 2 shots in the chest to kill someone with a .308 bolt action. Some of the ballistic vests soldiers wear can protect against .50 caliber bullets, even though it would be enough force to knock you on your a** and break bones. I do think a one shot kill in the chest up to one or two hundred meters would be a good idea.

  10. Gamer
    May 9th, 2013 at 2:57 am

    Can you please increase the muzzle velocity of bullets fired from sniper rifles?According to Wikipedia the muzzle velocity of bullets fired from Barrett M98B should be 940 metres per second and in Battlefield 3 it is just 650 metres per second.Barrett M98B fires 8,6×70 mm cartridges 338 Lapua Magnum.In Battlefield 3 it is difficult to hit the target with a sniper rifle from a long range.

    • Zach
      January 24th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

      Yea, the M40A5 should have a faster velocity than 490mps(bf4-480) at least have like a 500 or 520.

    • Zach
      January 24th, 2014 at 4:06 pm

      But, the zeroing helps for bullet drop, but yea, there is still bullet velocity.

  12. Justin
    May 14th, 2013 at 10:41 am

    The m24 needs to make a come back and the mac-mil tac 50 and or the barret m107 or some other .50 BMG round weapon. Semi autos like the SR-25 should be taken into consideration. The sounds should be much more that of the battlefield bad company 2 sniper sounds. Higher magnification of scopes and a little less bullet drop with suppressors would be much appreciated.

    • Justin
      June 16th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

      Just so you know the M24 and M40 are pretty much the same guns, the M24 is the Army’s sniper, and the M40 is the Marine’s sniper, the difference is that the M24 is chambered for long action rounds (meaning it can take magnum rounds and such) and the M40 is for short action rounds (can’t chamber magnum rounds) this is why Go Army!

      • Chris
        December 22nd, 2013 at 2:33 pm

        It may have the long action but they shoot the same round. .308 or 7.62×51 same round. The shorter action allows the m40 to chamber a round faster

        • Zach
          January 24th, 2014 at 4:08 pm

          The .308 round is still a long range and bad a** round!

  14. jack
    May 20th, 2013 at 5:29 am

    they need to add the big boy snipers like the .50 cal or the Remington .300 magnum. I would like to see the Savage series come in and I wouldn’t mind a PSG-1 to come in either. I would like to see an actual rangefinder to help spot and range distances and I agree on the Ghillie suit comment in here. the ghillie suit could be made for every biome like jungle, desert, and grassland.

  15. jack
    May 20th, 2013 at 5:37 am

    I would also like to see the Full Metal Jacket to be added plus a few others like the explosive tip where u can shoot through a wall and blows up on the other side like a minuscular grenade. Just more powerful rounds attachment is what im going for.

  16. Zera
    May 24th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Maaaaan, if they don’t increase sniper bullet velocity back to what is was or even more Bf3 is going to be the last Dice game I have ever bought that’s for sure. With this kind of diversity I’m still not sure about it… I mean some new weapons maybe? Still if they let me choose my bullets it’s fine. For instance I want to use l96 with .338 lapua instead of .308. Or use a silencer with a supersonic bullet thus having no muzzle flash and reduced sound effect (high freq sound left is not that traceable as the original :D)
    Some camouflage that I can choose for each weapon. Ghillie suit. (yeah i’m a sniper fanboy) Maybe a reflex sight on the side of the sniper to encourage close combat while still having a sniper scope.
    Choosing the size of the barrel for increased muzzle velocity but heavier weapon. Something useful instead of laser or flashlight (even if i have it equipped i turn it off all the time)

    • Bryan
      June 13th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

      totally agree, bf4 should have far more customization, how can one just have a heavy barrel or flashlight and all the other basic stuff on all the other weapons, seems like the same old uninteresting stuff, I’ll get so bored, surely each weapon should have a different upgrade that really affects the bullet velocity, power and range of the weapon, and the different effects it has whilst shooting an enemy soldier, surely the body parts of shot enemies should be torn off the soldiers once shot with the more powerful bullets etc….

    To anyone who brings up full metal jacket… Im not trying to be mean here, but simply to inform. every bullet in bf3 and most likely battlefield 4 will have full metal jacket. no military users now a days ( outside of third world countries maybe) use lead bullets. And frankly FMJ doesn’t do a thing at all, it just adds a copper jacket to the bullet. so to anyone from here on out who asks for FMJ just remember… we already have 😉

  24. Bryan
    June 13th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    looks like the same old guns, bit boring if you ask me. Don’t think i’ll buy it if this is the case. Cmon there should be new guns for a new game and I think there should be different power from different guns i.e. if a guy is shot with a high powered sniper rifle then his body should be torn in pieces, and if shot body parts should fly around, how interesting imagine shooting with one arm or leg and using your teeth to reload and bang your ammo in with hitting the gun against something or get someone to reload your gun whilst you slowly bleed to death if no medic supplies you with bandages……..and and….and………

    In BF4 they need to add the ghillie suit to recon but make it a hard thing to achieve because it should remove spot bonus and you shouldn’t be able to be seen through thermals. Have it in BF4 but make it hard to get. Also remove sub machine guns and stuff from recon class.

  26. Justin
    June 16th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    A lot of the guns you guys are asking for are either an older model of the gun (like everyone that asks for either m82’s or m107… come on people please read up on rifles they are the same thing) or M24’s vs M40….. the marines don’t use the M24 guys, the army uses the M24 and the Marine corps uses the M40, they are very similar guns, essentially the same (the bad company games used m24 because those guys were army) so that may clear up any confusion about the rifles, just read before you comment please 🙂

    • Nicholas
      October 17th, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      Just like the AK-47 as opposed to the AK-12. Basically a cleaner variant of the same weapon.

    June 16th, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    I hate the fact you can use close range optics on bolt action rifles. I think the Ghilie would work great as a tool instead of a skin, and NO SEMI AUTO .50 CALIBER RIFLES. With battlefield being battlefield, some jackass is just going to make it like Call of Duty and “quickscope.” Your job is to relay info. to your team and take out HVTs. Not to going on killing sprees. You do no good by doing the whole “aggressive recon” nonsense. An anti-material bolt-action fixed scope rifle would be fine in my book. Besides, most military personal prefer the .338 for anti-material than the .50.
    Oh and by the way, please say “sniper rifle” not “sniper.” Thats just annoying as hell hahaha!
    Just my input.
    oh yeah…and HIGH power binoculars would be kick ass

    • Nicholas
      October 17th, 2013 at 1:26 pm

      Yeah makes it sound like you went to the firing ranged and fired people skilled with sniper rifles out of your weapon. Quite humorous, but agreed, irritating.

  28. William
    June 17th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I only have 3 wants: Macmillan series, maybe more semi-auto’s, and binoculars.
    It would be nice if they added a .50 under the conditions that it takes the place of your primary and secondary, along with highly increased recoil. Also I have been playing forever and still can’t tell a difference. Does Battlefield use a location-marked hitbox? Does a shot to the leg count the same as a mid chest shot?

    I swear if they put a .50 in this game -.- that’s too much. Everybody would have one! It would pierce thru any light armor vehicle. I’m not about to put up with overkill bullshitters running with a 20 lb gun like on cod.

    snipers are mainly used by campers who don’t have skills so they find dark and safe little place so they can camp and shoot all day, i mean i like snipers too but i don’t camp like those losers

      Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that’s what snipers do in real life. They find a nice quiet spot to self reflect where they sit, and sit, and sit… then finally sit some more. It’s called recon for a reason. Reconnaissance. I know it sucks real snipers aren’t as tits as you and haul ass through gun fire with 10lb weapons and full ruck blasting their boom sticks around every corner. Part of battlefeild is being more tactical and slighlty more realistic than your average shooter.

      If they didn’t have skill than how would they get kills, how would they survive? Camping at times is a good strategy but you must be able to do it right, you can’t miss, if you miss the enemies are aware of your presence and you’ll most likely lose the kill, so you need to kill them with the first shot. After they see where you are when you kill them, they’re going to spawn back in as a recon and take position to take you out. You need to be constantly checking the rooftops and otherwise with your rangefinder to find the enemies and kill them before they kill you and despite the fact that they have the advantage, you can pull it off, after a while they might send a helicopter, at that point, if possible call in an engineer and lock onto it with your rangefinder, then the engineer can take it out with his RPG and you’ll be safe once again. If you have no engineer friends, you’ll have to run, jump off of whatever high place you found and don’t pull the parachute until you’re low, then try to find a building, land at the entrance and get inside, does that sound like no skill?

    I play a lot in the recon class on BF3 and I play hardcore while sniping as well now I know that in hardcore your health percentage is 60%, I think dice needs to do something about hardcore because its hardcore, a sniper rifle should kill a man one hit in the chest. I play hardcore so it seems more realistic but how can it be if I get hit markers with a sniper rifle. Make the sniper rifles more powerful. They should kill a man one shot unless its his foot. They should also be able to at least do some damage to vehicles if shot in the engine critical.

    Tbh I would like to see the m82a1 50. Cal in battlefield and before people say oh go away you’re a cod fan, I’m not I was just thinking that maybe they could implement some vehicle damaging snipers that can only be used when prone or with a bipod and to customise it maybe add different rounds like the shotgun shells and have an explosive tip round that does extra damage in vehicles. I think it would be interesting to see what would happen.

    Now I watch film that have sniper rifles in……… (for example Rambo) I don’t see how you can shoot somebody in bf with a sniper rifle and they don’t die? Only head shots are instant kills, shoot them in the torso and they keep running? In Rambo when anybody got shot there would either be a huge hole left in there torso OR body parts fly off? Don’t get me wrong, I love bf3 and have bf4 on order on ps4 and I am really looking forward to next gen bf but I will probably not play much as recon

      The reason sniper rounds don’t always kill in one shot as they might in RW situations is that it is a game, they have to balance the weapons or the games would be crap, imagine getting killed my a single 9mm round to the chest from 50m? You would just be dying so fast. Sure a game that is realistic as that may appeal to some hardcore gamers but for the most part a lot of people wouldn’t find it as fun. That is just my personal opinion but any game will always have complaints no matter what they do.

    I believe the should include the Cheytac M200 Intervention as Battlefield needs more powerful snipers available to unlock. Yes, the have a .50 cal included, but there’s one in a map and it’s gonna be a race to get it. Plus, the Cheytac is most probably the best sniper rifle in the world right now firing a .408 round which is smaller than a .50 but a lot more accurate with equal if not better range which makes for a whole lot of fun in the maps Battlefield experiments with as they’re huge!

    needs a lot more sniper rifles, not just 3 a sniper guy in bf3 and i would like to have a huge arsenal of guns. unless dice puts at least 15 and more guns with each dlc.the idea with m82 is really bad.people will race for it.
    bf4 needs a normal 50 cal sniper rifle.

    And one more thing that us snipers will like ok the maps are already big but i think they should make them even bigger to make the game more realistic

    Wow only 3 new sniper rifles. I figured there would be more. I’m disappointed to say the least. But I will still buy the game BF beats all combat based games on the market.

    There is a gun missing. The SCAR-H Sniper Variant was added to the DMR role. It has a much longer barrel than it did in BF3 and is meant to fill the battle rifle role like the G3, M417, and M39.

    August 25th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Seriously dice? M98b only 450 m/s really? Thats only about 1500 fps when IRL a .338 goes 900m/s(2900fps) to 1000m/s(3100fps) come on get a little more realistic please. I love aniping its my favorite class dont ruin it for me please. And the .50 not equipable? Not too big of a deal but it would of been nice.

  47. Dan
    August 25th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    And they need too add the Desert Tactical Arms HTI .375 cheytac which currently is the best round smaller than .50 bigger than .338. longer range faster and more powerful. Please add it dice ill love you forever!

    August 27th, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    The MSR has nothing on 80% of the sniper rifles included. And yes, i mean sniper rifles and not battle rifles/DMRs. Also, the SRR-61 (Cheytac M200 Intervention) should be on this list as it’s set to be in the game and has been shown in trailers and live gameplay from Gamescom.

      October 15th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

      That’s what I was thinking. While I will mainly be using the M39 I wish they would have a plain ole, M14 with a wood stock.

    I agree with task force green Dice should place vital organs in the players so when you shoot someone with a sniper rifle it should kill them with one shot to the heart brain lungs .ect because it was very anoying in bf3 you would shoot someone center chest and it wouldnot kill them.

    Game needs more. I’d love camo, an m24 cause I’m an m24 fanboy, an m110 because it is becoming one of the most used sniper rifles for urban warfare as well as the standard training rifle for sniper school. Needs a .50 added to class customization, why would they include it in the game but not as a selectable weapon, maybe have it where you move slower due to the weight, but needs more weapons.

  56. Danyon

    They could make it so players that have been shot start to bleed out if their hit in major arteries or organs, maybe have something to delay the blood flow until they can get to a medic?

     DMR and a Sniper are two VERY different things. A DMR is pretty much an assault rifle that has been modified to work as a more precise rifle, but still generally is meant to have a standard rifle cartridge, example: a Sniper Rifle may use a .50 antimaterial (or however the h3ll it’s spelled) or someother high caliber rifle round, while a DMR would have a .556 × 45mm round (the same as the M16 and damn near every standard issue assault rifle I can think) or MAYBE a .762 round. Please change this so that they are under different categories. It is very confusing to say the least.
