Best bolt action sniper rifles and their features

PUBG Mobile is getting huge success in the mobile gaming industry as the game has crossed 100 million downloads in a span of just four months. The company is now coming up with another version of the game which will be called PUBG Lite which will target budget phones.

The game has only been released in Philipines as of now but is expected to hit the global market after some testing.

Today we look at a very prominent gun class in the game Sniper Rifles.

For now, we will only talk about bolt action sniper rifles and will give separate attention to designated marksman rifles.

Bolt action sniper rifles are the most damaging guns in the game. These guns are very effective over a long range and are used to snipe targets far away. They are called bolt action since they take a major recoil after each bullet is fired and can’t be used in burst mode or automatic mode.

They cause a high damage with each bullet but it is sacrificed for its almost zero fire rate. They are effective if the target is still, but can be very hard to hit if the target is moving. These guns have a low mag size and a very high reload time. As of now, only three bolt-action sniper rifles are there in-game out of which two are crate exclusive:
