Sniper is a key role in a Free Fire squad. A good sniper gives the team fire support and is often the one to take down enemies and get the most kills. To be a good sniper, having the right weapon is vital.

Therefore, in this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 6 best guns for Snipers in Free Fire 2022.

1. SVD-Y

The SVD has always been one of the most popular DMRs in the game, with the ability to deal high damage while ignoring armor. However, the Gloo Wall meta, DMRs like it haven't been as popular as the usual Sniper rifle, as enemies can just put up their shield whenever they want.

The SVD-Y would deal with this issue. It is a variant of the SVD with the ability to penetrate gloo walls. Unlike the M82B, the SVD-Y would deal less damage to targets behind walls, however, with its higher fire rate, it is going to be just as deadly.

2. Woodpecker

The best part about the M21 Woodpecker is its armor-piercing ability. With a whopping 75 points in armor penetration stat (the highest in the game), it can ignore up to 3/4 of enemies' damage reduction from armors and helmets. This would ensure its power in the late game, in which everyone would be wearing high-level gears.

The Woodpecker's range is rather low comparing to other weapons in its class.

The Woodpecker has the highest accuracy than any other AR or semi-auto sniper rifles in the game. With 69 points, you would be able to snipe from afar with relatively good results. You can also equip pretty much every kind of attachment on the Woodpecker as well.

3. M82B

The M182B has one perk that no other weapon in Free Fire has, the ability to shoot through Gloo Wall. This is the reason why the M82B is still the best sniper in Free Fire. It is also available on the map and not from the airdrop so you can get it more often than the AWM.

It also has a special extra ability that deals more damage to counter vehicles.

4. AWM

The AWM used to be one of the strongest weapons... however, other newly released guns have power creeped it out. The AWM has the highest bonus damage amongst the three weapons – a headshot would knockout everyone, even if they are wearing level 3 helmets.

Its rarity is the problem - the much commonly found Kar98k can perform almost as well in combat.

5. M14

The M14 is probably the best gun for headshots in the AR class, with its high range and accuracy. While the M14's fire rate is rather low, it is still enough for you to finish your foe after a headshot. You can also get the variant with the Rage Core for a massive firing rate.

The only weakness of the M14 is its lack of armor penetration.

6. AK

After all these years, the AK is still one of the best weapons in Free Fire, with high damage, high range in exchange for a high recoil. Overall, the AK's high damage makes it strong at pretty much all stages of the game and is suitable to go with any build. The 73 range can supplement any sniper rifle.
