Ghost Recon Wildlands – How to Get the Best Sniper Rifle

by Josh Hawkins

If you want to take down all of the drug lords in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you’re going to want the best equipment for the job. In this article we’ll show you how to obtain the MSR Sniper Rifle, which is arguably the best sniper rifle Ghost Recon Wildlands. Getting the best sniper rifle early on in Ghost Recon Wildlands will require some patience and stealth, so be sure to follow the information below closely to refrain from dying.

We decided to list the MSR as the best sniper rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands because it outperforms the HTI in almost every category. While the best sniper rifle may differ between players, we feel that the MSR is going to be the go-to for most of the players in the game.

How to get the MSR Sniper Rifle

In order to find and obtain the MSR Sniper Rifle, you’re going to need to head to the Montuyoc province, just west of the province that you start in. The location of the Weapon Case containing this weapon is found near the western border, along a set of mountains in the area. The case itself is actually hidden within a mine shaft, so you’ll need to approach from the east, as this will give you cover to look down on the base from the top of a hill.

There are roughly four soldiers patrolling the area outside the mine entrance. One sniper can be found in the watchtower on the far side, with three patrollers in different positions around the area. There is also an armored vehicle nearby, so be careful of spooking too many of the enemy soldiers.

We should also mention that at least two of the soldiers inside the mine area will patrol outside, so make your shots count before they can come out.

Once the way is clear, head inside the mine and scout ahead using your drone. You’ll want to sneak through this area, as it is crawling with enemies.

We suggest using the game’s Sync Marks to take down targets easily, as this will allow you to clear them out without causing any ruckus. There are two enemies near a minigun at the end of the entrance shaft.

With the minigun taken care of, look for a shaft that leads off to the left. A patrol comes down this way, so spot him with your drone, but don’t stick around too long or the drone will be detected.

Clear the enemies in your way, and follow the shaft all the way to a dead end, where you’ll find this Weapon Case at the far end.

Loot the case, then make your back out of the mine and exit using the nearby chopper. If you’re lucky, and silent, you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting back out.

Now that you know how to get the best sniper rifle, make sure you have the best sniper scope to go with it. You’ll also want to return to our Ghost Recon Wildlands guide where we have even more helpful articles to help you conquer Bolivia and stop the Santa Blanca Cartel.
