PUBG #Update 25 Sniper Rifles

Sniper Rifles

AWM

  • Ammo Type: 0.300
  • Magazine Size: 5 (7 with Extended Mag)
  • Body Shot Damage: 132/92.4/79.2/59.4/57
  • Headshot Damage: 300/210/180/135
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 1.85s/4.6s

The only rifle that can one-shot kill through a Level 3 helmet, the AWM is an air drop-exclusive that excels at uber-range. All its other stats are built to counterbalance the AWM’s monumental damage; high reload time, low fire rate, unique ammunition only found in air drops… But seriously, who’s not gonna pick up an AWM when they get the chance?

M24

  • Ammo Type: 7.62
  • Magazine Size: 5 (7 with Extended Mag)
  • Body Shot Damage: 87/60.8/52.1/39.1/38
  • Headshot Damage: 197.5/138.25/118.5/88.88
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 1.8s/4.2s

The M24 used to be an air drop-only item until they made it world-spawnable back in May 2018, making it one of the strongest non-air drop weapons in the game. Stronger than a Kar98k, with a slightly faster rate of fire and higher muzzle velocity, too. The only reason to take a Kar98k over an M24 is if, like the rest of PUBG’s playerbase, you have a great deal of experience with the former and find it harder to hit shots with the latter.

Kar98K

  • Ammo Type: 7.62
  • Magazine Size: 5
  • Body Shot Damage: 83/57.8/49.5/37.1/36
  • Headshot Damage: 187.5/131.25/112.5/84.38
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 1.9s/4s

The Kar98k, while outclassed in every way by the M24 and the AWM, should still command a great deal of respect and fear. A low rate of fire, high reload time, and small and un-upgradeable magazine size are all balanced out by extreme damage and the fact that everyone’s had so much experience with the Kar98k by now, so you just know they’re gonna land those headshots.

Winchester Model 1894

  • Ammo Type: 0.45
  • Magazine Size: 8
  • Body Shot Damage: 73/50.8/43.6/32.7/31
  • Headshot Damage: 165/115.5/99/74.25
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.6s/4s

I’m almost positive the Winchester is a Crossbow in disguise, trying to earn a bit more respect. Lack of attachment options, the lowest damage of any sniper rifle, and the same reload time as a Kar98k. The Winchester is only useful early- to mid-game, and should be abandoned as soon as you find another sniper rifle or DMR.

Miscellaneous weapons

Crossbow

  • Ammo Type: Bolt
  • Magazine Size: 1
  • Body Shot Damage: 105/73.5/63/47.3/47.3
  • Headshot Damage: 241.5/169.1/145/109
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 3.8s/3.55s

Death by crossbow is responsible for a great many rage-quits, I’m sure, but that alone won’t save it from being a ludicrously impractical weapon used only when nothing else is available. Huge “bullet” drop and a disgusting amount of time between shots is not ameliorated enough by its decent damage and natural stealth.
