[Top 11] Sniper Games Ever Made

Sniping requires precision, intelligence, and patience. Breath in. Take your time. Wait for the perfect opportunity, and just when your target least expects it, send them knocking on heaven’s door. Do you have what it takes to be a true sniper? Well then here is a list of the top 11 sniper games ever made.


1. Escape From Tarkov (PC)


Escape From Tarkov Gameplay

Your goal is to make your way through the city of Tarkov, as bloodthirsty locals and rival mercenaries try to take you out of the picture. Polish your marksmanship skills, gather all equipment and supplies you can find and get ready for a hardcore first-person action experience.

What Makes Escape From Tarkov Fun

  • Realistic Gunplay: Escape From Tarkov gives you no quarter, as you will have to get used to things like jamming and overheating. Not to mention real-life projectile physics and ballistics. 
  • Managing Your Precious Health: Surviving might reveal itself to be harder than it seems in this game. Wearing ballistic vests and helmets can only do so much protecting your ass in a fire fight. You will have to monitor and manage your health bar and energy to avoid unsavory experiences like dehydration, tremors and even broken bones. Even when a bullet wound doesn’t kill you right away, blood loss might.  
  • Gathering Supplies: As you move through Tarkov you will need to keep your eyes peeled for much needed loot: food, equipment, weapons, medicine or even electronics and other mundane items. The possibilities are many, and you will need all you can get for both survival as well as challenges given to you by Tarkov’s many specialized vendors.
  • Trading and Selling Goods: Nothing has to go to waste. Sell whatever loot you don’t need in auctions, or maybe trade it for something more valuable to you; such is life as a mercenary soldier.

Enjoy the View: Scout your location for a good vantage point, take out your sniper rifle and look for your next unsuspecting victim 

Attention to Detail: Making out your enemies through various obstacles will give you the upper hand, but try to ensure no one is doing the exact same thing to you


2. Star Wars Battlefront II (PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4)

What Makes Star Wars Battlefront II Fun

  • Space Combat: Engage in awesome space battles using a wide array of pistols, automatic weapons, and rifles to obliterate your enemies and drive a wide array of vehicles – one of them being the Millennium Falcon itself!
  • A Unique Angle of Star Wars Storytelling: Witness the events that drive a loyal Imperial Commander away from the Dark Side and into the Rebellion during the game’s compelling campaign. 
  • Huge Multiplayer Battles:  Enjoy the satisfying feeling of destroying your enemies with your blaster – sounds dirtier than it is, tear through your opponents with your lightsaber or take to the skies in a combat vehicle. 

Scavenging The Woods: Exploring might get you some precious supplies, but beware; it can just as easily get you killed

Keep Your Eye On The Ball: Sniping can very easily take up all your focus, but shifting all your attention from the main objective may not be your best option either



3. PUBG (PC)


PUBG Gameplay

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds drops you off in a battlefield filled with ninety-nine strangers that want to murder you. Sound like fun? You will have to start from scratch in every match, moving swiftly to find a weapon and fight in a blood-soaked free for all. You can also team up with your friends to massacre all enemy soldiers to be the last team standing. A chicken dinner has never sounded so good. 


What Makes PUBG Fun

  • Increasingly Smaller Battleground: One of the most exciting features of the game is that as the battle goes on, the area you are forced to battle your enemies in gradually decreases, making the game a heck of a lot more hectic.
  • Adapting To Survive: Nothing in PUBG is just handed to the players. You will be challenged to find weapons, armor and supplies all by yourself. And if you need to make a quick escape, well you better find yourself a vehicle or you are as good as dead.
  • True Suspense: You never know when you might run into one of your rivals. The first few seconds of that encounter might be what determines whether you’ll emerge victorious, or die unceremoniously.

A Nice Day For Camping: It may be tempting to find a good spot and stay there for the entirety of a match, but remember; the ever-shrinking maps of PUBG will force you to change positions and find a new spot

Want To Set The World On Fire: Performing a hit from afar usually means remaining unnoticed, but there’s still room for troublemakers with a scope in these battlegrounds


4. Battlefield V (PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4)


Battlefield V Gameplay

Experience the relentlessness of World War II through the eyes of different soldiers in a truly arresting campaign that never shies away from the horrors of war; one you’ll find hard to forget. Would you like to see how your abilities measure up against other players? Try one of the several multiplayer modes offered by the game. 


What Makes Battlefield V Fun

  • Different Perspectives: Battlefield V’s single-player campaign doesn’t stick with just a single man’s or woman’s story. Instead, it takes the time to give you a well – rounded experience, by putting you in the shoes of several soldiers fighting not just for their countries, but for their lives and the lives of their comrades too. 
  • Full-Scale War: Campaign missions vary from thoses that allow for close-quarter confrontations and picking your enemies off from distance make the game interesting and exciting. Coupled with large multiplayer maps and heated PVP battles, these are guaranteed to make you feel the thrill of battle.
  • Coordinated Teamwork: Scavenge enemy corpses, gather resources, and rely on your teammates for both medical and tactical support. There’s safety in numbers, and Battlefield V proves that, as taking the lone wolf approach rarely pays off. 
  • Plenty of Options: The various guns, upgrades, and skills available to the players facilitate any kind of game style. No one strategy is superior, as you will find that the end result almost always depends on your own wits and abilities. 

Now You See Me: When in Multiplayer, make sure the only time your enemies become aware of your position is when they get hit by one of your bullets

6. Squad (PC)

  • Emphasis On Teamwork: When in a match to the death, it’s always good to be able to trust your teammates. Even though one’s individual skill is required to succeed, it’s usually group coordination that makes the difference between victory and defeat.
  • Various Modes: Explore the games’ many options as the goal of each kind of match can be different with varying degrees of difficulty. Find what better suits your skillset, and excel in it.
