How to Bolt Action ?

Hi guys,

On my road to Master all guns I have now reached the Bolt Action Rifles. Some of them are already mastered CS-LR4, SCOUT, GOL, CS5 and soon the SV98.

Problem, the only effective Recon Rifles for PTFO are the DMRs or the SR338. The Bolt Action Rifles basically are the exact opposite of how I play: Attacking dem Flags.

Obliteration turned out to be a very good game mode for BA's, but the Flanks are sometimes unpredictable and I often got swarmed by multiple Squads, although the Bomb was somewhere else.

Currently I run the BA's with a 8x-Scope + Canted Irons + Straight Pull. I wonder if you have any other recommendations, because often the 8x-Scope blocks the peripheral view of the canted iron sights and things get even more difficult.

Unfortunately there is no possibility to equip an 4x-Scope with 2x-Magnifier and get a 8x-Magnification. (I know the Magnifier doesnt work this way and I am glad it doesnt, but it would be beneficial for the BA's)

Probably I oversee something, but is there any way to play effective with a Bolt Action ?

Play Hardcore for that juicy lethal damage

I liked HC Obliteration on Sunken Dragon

Though Operation Locker outside was an excellent funnel as well, not much room to serpentine there

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

Eww, Hardcore :(

And on 24 player Locker the outsides can be really boring. Only when both fight at the choke point for the Bomb, then you can grab max 10 kills.

What?

btw. What is the Muzzle Brake on BA's even useful for ? Flash Hider makes sense, somehow, but the Muzzle Brake ?

Rush defense on Naval Strike, or China Rising. Any rush maps work, but those are the best

Attacking dem Flags.

aah, see, there's your problem, you're playing conquest.

long range snipers can ptfo only in rush and obliteration, and not even all the maps! some good ones are definitely siege of shangai obl, paracel storm, gulf of oman and firestorm.

Aggressive recon with BASR can be done - on console at least, look for guys like xarcotix, shunzy, b1tchwood. I'm sure their equivalents exist on PC.

But they've been nerfed to all hell by RNG base spread, the character animation is still glitchy AF, they still have abnormally low muzzle velocity, and the targets have zero momentum and can literally dodge bullets with ease.... So they kinda suck.

I prefer the 7x scope, especially with canteds, because it gets out of the way of the irons, although I don't recommend using canteds myself. Most aggressive recons use laser (to provide more reliable noscopes and also to give a better 'hint' at the centre of the screen), and others 14x zoom (for versatility). Personally I find that the 6x does not provide sufficient zoom for longer range shots, and the 8x is too much for CQB, so I run the 7x. The reticle sucks, but at that range, it's all muscle memory anyway (another reason to avoid irons) and the reticle makes less of an impact. Also, 7x-14x means the lead and drop are even multiples and I like that.

Lately I've been ditching the over-nerfed BASR in favour of shotgun slugs. SPAS-12+slugs+4x is the best sniper rifle in the game.

Oh my JNG I always roll with Prisma 3.4x or JGM 4x. Gives enough magnification for up to ~150m which is about as far as I can tolerate being from my target, and also no scope glint which is excellent for catching enemy snipers off-guard.
The moment I see the huge obvious scope glint I instinctively start abusing the stupid soldier animations to make myself impossible to hit, so when sniping back I feel it's a pretty big downside of high-power scopes that just isn't worth it.

I prefer the 4x too, but the inability to hold breath kinda sucks...

Outside of montages? Not really.
