The Arctic Warfare Magnum or AWM in Free Fire has range and accuracy statistics of 91 and 90. It has similar damage rates to other Free Fire sniper weapons, but it also has covert headshot bonus damage.

In a long-range fight, a pre-equipped 8x scope can be fatal. The only drawback of the AWM is that it can only be found in airdrops.

#2 - M82B

The M82B has another special skill; it can penetrate a shield. The gun can also inflict additional body-shot damage to targets with armor.

#3 - Kar98K

The Kar98K in Free Fire is one of the most balanced sniper rifles, and is pre-equipped with an 8x scope. It can also contend with the AWM in body-shot damage percentage. It has a damage rate of 90 and a range of 84, which is a pretty remarkable statistic.


The Kar98k, however, can't really execute the target in a single hit due to its lower headshot damage.

Disclaimer: What may seem like a good weapon for one person may not be the same for others. The choice of guns entirely depends on the players and their preferences.
