There are a lot of weapons in Free Fire, with different strengths and weaknesses – and many of them are very effective at long range. To be a good sniper, you need to know the capability of the best sniper weapons in the game. In this list, we would list out the top 5 best Sniper Rifles in Free Fire and find out which one of them is the best.

1. M82B

The newest sniper rifle added to Free Fire - the M82B definitely packs a lot of punch and is very versatile due to its numerous special abilities. It deals the same base damage as other sniper rifles with extra bonus damage to Vehicles and Gloo walls. With the M82B, you can definitely make short work of enemies behind Gloo covers. Another bonus statistics of the M82B is that it can pierce armor - the gun would deal extra damage on body shots against targets with armor.

2. AWM

While the power of the AWM in Free Fire is certainly nerfed compared to that of other games, it is still the king of all Sniper Rifles. The gun has extreme range and accuracy stats - amongst the strongest in-game. If you managed to get your hand on either a silencer or a muzzle, it would be almost impossible to stop. While the damage stat of the AWM is equal to other guns in its class, it has a hidden headshot bonus damage. You would be able to one-hit kill targets no matter what helmets they are wearing, with a headshot.

3. SVD

The Dragunov SVD is a very powerful automatic sniper rifle that can only be found in airdrops and resupply points; it is one of the deadliest weapons in-game. The difference between the SVD and other weapons on this list is its armor penetration – combined with its decent fire rate, a player equipped with the Dragunov would be able to down an enemy wearing a level 2 vest in about 3 shots.

The weakness of the Dragunov is its slightly higher recoil and its rarity - the gun is pretty hard to find unless you are lucky.

4. Treatment Sniper

Overall, this gun is going to be a method of free instant heal so that teammates could get back into combat right away. The target gains HP instantly, which is much faster than a medkit. However, it cannot be used when overheated.

5. Woodpecker

Woodpecker is the best semi-automatic sniper rifle in Free Fire. It actually has one of the highest effective damage in the game, due to its ability to pierce armor. However, the Woodpecker's weakness is its relatively short range for a sniper rifle. You might need to get a little bit closer for the gun to be effective.


Lastly, the Woodpecker has the highest accuracy amongst any ARs and semi-auto sniper rifles in the game. With 69 points, you would be able to snipe from afar with relatively good results.
