An Infantry has a wide arsenal of weapons available, but which weapons are best used for longer ranges? Read more on Five Tips for Long-Range Infantry.

 

Bolt-Action – slow but deadly

The Bolt-Action Rifles (K98K, M1903 & Mosin-Nagant) provide the most damage and the largest range. They do have a slow rate of fire but with the right modifications it is able to one-shot any infantry on the field who doesn’t wear the heavy set combat badge.

 

Scope the distance

Having trouble seeing that well on long distances? The Semi-Automatic and Bolt-Action rifles allow a scope to be equipped. This will surely enhance your vision so you can engage your opponents more easily at longer distances.

 

Choose the right upgrades

With the right modifications the Bolt-Action rifle can have a slightly higher rate of fire and do a lot more damage. For the Bolt-Action rifle it’s best to equip 5 upgrades:

  • Ammunition: The bullets with the highest possible damage
  • Sights: Either the scope or the precision modification
  • Trigger: A trigger for a little extra rate of fire
  • Internal: The Heavy Bolt for a little extra damage
  • Barrel: The Scout II Barrel with damage

This will allow your bolt-action rifle to do a lot of damage and potentially one-shot your opponents when you hit them in the chest.

 

Be prepared for close range defense

The Bolt-Action rifle is great at long range, but not as powerful at close ranges due to the slow rate of fire. With the right pouch sizes set you can equip a SMG or other types of good close range weapons with it. So you can switch between the two weapons depending on the situation.

 

Consider a career as a recon

The Recon career is the career with the most abilities on long range. Having a recon soldier means you can have better scopes and stronger modifications for your Bolt-Action rifle.
