Weapon Basics - Get to know your Longbow-DMR Sniper

This sniper is great. It has high damage and can fire quickly from long-range. That's perfect for sniping in this game because of how fast-paced it is.

  • It fires up to 8 shots by default before you have to reload.
  • You only need 2-3 shots to take down a Pilot, less if you get a headshot.
  • Pretty decent for taking out Titans after you rodeo them.

Attachments - Choose Your Scope

6x Zoom Scope

Use this when you need snipe across the map. No other scope gets the range this one has. With the right location, you can snipe pretty much anything on the map with the 6x zoom scope.

  • Longest scope range.
  • Great for sniping long distances.
  • Not good for people getting close to you.


AOG stands for Advanced Optical Gunsight. This scope has a 2.4x zoom scope. It is a short-range for a sniper, but still shoots pretty far.

  • Shortest scope range.
  • Great for closer fights.
  • Best when moving constantly and killing many people in a short area/amount of time.
  • Still good for sniping. It has a shorter range, but can still reach most targets.

4.5x Zoom Scope

My personal favorite. Great balance between the short-range AOG and the long-range 6x Zoom Scope. 

  • Medium-Long scope range.
  • Great versatility. It is able to shoot far distances, while still letting you see people approaching you.
  • Good in nearly every situation.

Mods - Customize Your Sniper

Extended Magazine

The best overall mod for this gun. It adds 4 shots before reloading, giving a total of 12 shots per magazine. This gives you more room for error and plenty of ammo to take down multiple people before reloading.


This lowers the overall damage, but you will not show up on enemy minimaps when firing. It also reduces the noise and muzzle flash of the gun. Decent when you want to go unnoticed during an objective-based game.


Not that great honestly. This is a fast gun and a fast-paced game. This steadies the aim when you want to fire. You don't need it though, since it fires multiple shots quickly. The extra ammo per magazine is a better choice.

Challenges - Become an expert Sniper

There are 6 categories of challenges for the Longbow-DMR Sniper, each with multiple tiers to complete.
