Red Orchestra 2 sniper guide

How to be an asset to your team and make the other one curse under its breath

In this PC Gamer Protip, Senior Editor Evan Lahti divulges our strategies for successful sniping in high-realism WWII shooter Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. Whether or not the challenge of RO2's large-scale territory battles is for you, many of these long-range combat tactics apply to any shooter with big guns and scopes. And if you love sniping as much as we do (despite what might be said about our ilk by less-precise soldiers), it's just tons of fun to watch 200 meter beheadings. Watch the introduction above, and run through our complete course in the videos below.
