M40A3 real-life

The M40A3 sniper rifle, a staple in early Modern Combat titles.

A sniper rifle is a type of firearm featured in the Modern Combat series designed for long-range shooting. Sniper rifles excel at long range, where their high power, accuracy, and zoom (given by the attached scope) allow players to kill enemies at ranges other weapons would be unable to do. However, as expected, sniper rifles do not perform well at close range, as they have very low hipfire accuracy, less damage and have no crosshair when held at the hip. Sniper Rifles come in bolt-action and semi-automatic fire-modes.

Bolt-action sniper rifles most of the time have higher power and greater accuracy, though these sniper rifles have a low rate of fire, due to cycling the bolt between each shot. Semi-automatic Sniper Rifles are much more diverse than bolt-action. The semi-automatic sniper rifles have low power and recoil, allowing for follow-up shots if the first did not kill. Semi-automatic sniper rifles can be fired much faster, but do less damage per shot. Sniping in Modern Combat 3 has been changed. Rifles feature little recoil, and with the ability to choose various attachments, can be adapted for a wider variety of roles. Sniper rifles are primaries in all Modern Combat games.
