The best Vanguard snipers are those that can pick enemies off from afar without offering too much kickback at the same time. It's what you'd hope for in any case with a long-range weapon, but thankfully, the snipers of Vanguard tend to deliver. But which of the snipers that the latest Call of Duty has to offer is the best of the bunch? Here's our guide to the very best Vanguard snipers.

Fancy a closer look at some of the other weapon categories? Take a look here:

Best Vanguard Snipers: Kar98k

You probably saw this coming. The Kar98k is the people's champ when it comes to snipers, and with its solid damage, handling speed and aim has made sure that it earns its title.

You can get this weapon kitted out to the nines to make sure it fits your needs as a sniper, and it remains pretty versatile no matter the attachments you throw on it. The weapon is a powerhouse and one you'll have no trouble putting to good use.

  • Muzzle: Scout Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD REO2K 
  • Optic: Type 97 5X Telescopic
  • Stock: VDD Thumbhole
  • Underbarrel: Bipod
  • Magazine: N/A
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Shrouded
  • Kit: Defender 

You can find a more agile, short-range option in our best Vanguard Kar98k loadouts guide.

Vanguard Best Snipers: 3-Line Rifle

This was a close pick. In all fairness, the 3-Line Rifle could be just as good as the Kar98k - however, the sheer pace of Vanguard doesn't make it easy to use. If this changes, or you're aiming to use a sniper in a game of Search & Destroy - this weapon could be your saving grace.

With a huge damage output that means a one-shot-kill in most scenarios, that makes up for its recoil and slow handling with sheer power. The 3-Line Rifle is one that will knock your enemies clean off their feet, and do damage that will shock you.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: 500mm MN Custom
  • Optic: 1913 Variable 4-8x 
  • Stock: MN Custom
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: .30-06 20 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Hardscope 
  • Kit: Defender

Like the Kar98k, our best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadouts guide has another option for those who prefer being on the move with your sniper.

Vanguard Best Snipers: Type 99

Finally, the worst of the bunch but by no means a bad weapon, we finally have the Type 99. Its focus on speed and handling should, on paper, make this weapon the perfect sniper for the current pace of Vanguard, but it just can't handle the pressure.

The gun needs a lot to boost its damage to a reasonable degree, so once you've done that, get used to the sway of the attachments and you're left with a hard-hitting sniper rifle. There are worse weapons in the game and we'd recommend picking one of the other snipers, but this is our pick for the best attachments to use on the Type 99.

  • Muzzle: L Brake
  • Barrel: Shiraishi Short
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Sakura Wire
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Magazine: N/A

With the above attachments geared towards quickscoping, take a look at our best Vanguard Type 99 loadouts guide to find another one geared towards long-distance sniping.

That's our guide to the snipers you need to use - and though it may be brief, at least it's a chance to put the Kar98k on an even higher pedestal.
