Dive right into the heat of battle with your trusty sniper rifle and dominate the competition with our Sniper Arena tips and tricks.
1. Prepare To Die
First-person shooter games are not for the faint-hearted. With that in mind, expect that everyone will try to kill you as soon as you step out of the tutorial. Survival instinct has to kick in from the get-go. Instead of getting discouraged if you die as soon as you spawn, use your limited time to familiarize yourself with the map as soon as possible. There are limited maps so it will only be a matter of time before you discover the good hiding spots. Remember, you’re a sniper, so pack your bags and go camping!
2. Watch Where You’re Shooting
The goal of snipers in any game is to take out the enemy in one shot. Make sure you practice your aim because you might not get a second chance if you miss. The game controls are pretty straight forward and easy to learn. You just need to swipe and zoom. That doesn’t mean that you can just tap away on your screen and expect headshots to pour in. Mastering aim takes time and a lot of patience but it is the number one skill you need to have. You don’t always have to get a headshot, though. Sometimes just hitting your enemy is enough.
3. If You Can’t Kill Them, Join Them
If you find yourself struggling on your own, there is no shame in calling for backup. Joining more Team Deathmatch games will help you get used to the combat system and controls while having allies that can help watch your back. Playing in teams can also be more beneficial when you’re starting out because you can learn how your high-level teammates move without having to worry about dying as much.
4. Suit Up
In case you haven’t done so already, check your gear. Leveling up is not enough to make you stronger. You need stronger equipment if you want to keep winning. Upgrade your equipment every chance you get because every bit of improvement makes a difference in game. Choose your equipment depending on your playstyle. High powered weapons aren’t necessarily the best if you’re playing the speed game.
5. Don’t Be That Guy
Always remember that you are playing an online game. You need to have a good stable connection to be able to play properly. If you are not confident in your mobile data signal, then it’s best to wait until you have a wifi connection before playing. You don’t want to die repeatedly because of lag and you better believe there will be lag. On top of that, your teammates will all hate you if they end up losing because you can’t even run to a hiding spot.
And with that, it’s time to lock and load! Just follow these five Sniper Arena tips and tricks, and you’ll be a pro player in no time.
