If you're looking to find out which sniper and sharpshooter rifles are the best in Call of Duty Vanguard, you've come to the right place. In this tier list of the best Call of Duty Vanguard snipers, we will list all snipers and sniper rifles from best to worst.


List of the best Call of Duty Vanguard snipers

Sniper Rifles are always one of the funnest weapons to use in any FPS game, and it's no different in CoD Vanguard. These weapons are easy to learn but difficult to master. But once you get carried away, you will tear your opponents to shreds as if they were nothing.


Currently, there are three sniper rifles and three sharpshooter rifles in CoD Vanguard. Each of these weapons in Vanguard has their own unique strengths and weaknesses, so choosing the right shotgun to use can be confusing.

To help you out, we've created a tier list below that will list all the sniper and sharpshooter rifles in Call of Duty Vanguard from best to worst.

The best CoD Vanguard snipers

If you're unfamiliar with tier lists, read the tier descriptions below to understand the ranking system:


  • Level S: the crème de la crème of sniper / sharpshooter rifles. Rifles at this level don't even need OP loads to destroy enemies.
  • One level: The rifles of this level are not the best in the game, but they are very close.
  • Tier B: Rifles of this tier are decent on their own, but they need great equipment to perform well.
  • Tier C: These are poor shotguns overall. They only work well in specific situations.

S-level snipers

In S Tier, the fan-favorite Kar98k stands alone. As expected, this sniper rifle leaves every other sniper / sharpshooter rifle in the dust.


This gun performs well in just about any situation you can imagine. It doesn't matter if you are up close and personal with the enemy or if you are shooting from a distance.

If you have the skills, you will win the duel regardless; like the gun you have doesn't throw punches. It has great damage, mobility, scope speed, accuracy and damage range. The Kar98k is as good as a sniper rifle.

A-tier sniper rifles

Moving on to level A, we have the Arisaka Type 99 and the Mosin-Nagant or "3-Line Rifle".

The Arisaka Type 99 is a fantastic bolt action sniper rifle that hails from Japan. It has an impressive reload time, rate of fire, damage and magazine size. It has the potential to shoot an opponent if you hit them in the head, neck or chest without the need for Stopping Power.

The Mosin-Nagant is very similar to the Arisaka Type 99. The only difference is that it has less potential for single hit enemies. Ergo, the Arisaka Type 99 differs slightly from the Mosin-Nagant, but both are still great rifles.

Level B

In level B, we have the famous marksman rifle, the M1 Garand.


The best thing about the M1 Garand is its accuracy and impressive rate of fire (for a marksman rifle). It can shoot enemies twice at medium and long range and can even kill with a close range headshot. The only thing holding it back is its blazing ADS speed.

However, you can easily improve the gun's ADS speed by creating the right gear for it, so that's not a big deal. Ergo with the right equipment, this gun can get very powerful.

C-level snipers

Finally, in level C, we have the SVT-40 and Gewehr-43 marksman rifles.


Both weapons have nothing out of the ordinary. The SVT-40 has the potential to kill enemies with a single shot, but has extremely poor rate of fire and mobility.

On the other hand, the Gewehr-43 has decent rate of fire and accuracy but has very low damage.

With the right equipment, these weapons can become relatively powerful, but there is no point in using them in place of the other weapons on the list unless you have no other choice.
