What the Best Sniper Is in Far Cry 5
One of the most satisfying things to do in Far Cry 5, is liberating an enemy outpost undetected. Something about essentially being a ghost wiping out enemy after enemy without making as much as a peep is just badass. One of the best weapon types for a silent and stealthy approach in Far Cry 5 is, of course, the sniper rifle. And, as such, you’re going to want to make sure you’re using the very best one you can get your hands on.
Our personal pick for the best sniper in Far Cry 5 is the AR-CL, it might not have an insane amount of power in its rounds, but if you go for headshots, it’s still more than capable of one-shotting enemies from afar.
If you want to make it even more lethal, equip the ADV-X scope and a silencer (for the sneakiness). What you’re left with is a whisper quiet, long-range weapon which comes with a burst mode for wiping out any enemies that get a little too close for comfort.
That’s our pick for the best sniper in Far Cry 5, but ultimately, it comes down to exactly what you want out of a sniper. Take a look through the different stats of the sniper rifles on offer and see what matches up best with what you want out of it. Though, we can give the AR-CL a wholehearted recommendation after being a loyal companion throughout most of our time in Hope County.
