The Helldivers 2 Anti-Materiel Rifle is a sniper used to do solid damage at a distance - and yes, it's the anti-materiel rifle, not anti-material. There's been multiple occasions where Personal Order daily challenges have pushed players to kill 60 enemies with the Anti-Material Rifle, so we'll cover how to do that in Helldivers 2 below, and what you need to know about using this lethal sniper.

The Anti-Materiel Rifle is an armor-piercing, sniper support weapon that can be brought along as a Stratagem when choosing your loadout before a mission or, if you're lucky, looted at points of interest and objective areas during missions. You can pay 5,000 Requisition Slips once you reach level 2 to unlock the Stratagem, which makes it quite expensive for level 2, but it's worth having once you reach Medium difficulty and above, especially as your options for armor piercing weapons in Helldivers 2 are limited early on.

If you have the personal order to kill 60 enemies, we recommend going onto low-level bot-missions - the bots are slower than bugs, easier to target from a distance, but the minor enemies still die in one shot, meaning you can line them up and fire from cover without any chance of them dodging or moving around. 

More generally, the Anti-Materiel Rifle itself is best saved for middling enemies and above, using it to punch holes in anything that your regular primary weapon can't handle. Its long range also means that if you're about to invade an enemy outpost or nest, you should take point at a distance and kill some of the bigger threats from far away before finally moving in to deal with the fabricators or bug holes.

The only thing to be aware of with the Anti-Materiel Rifle if you've not used it before is that it does not have a hip-fire crosshair while in third-person mode, so to use it effectively you must switch to first-person aiming to use the scope. Good luck out there, Helldiver!
