The bulky EM4 Longshot's overclocked propulsion coils allow for projectiles that both travel faster and hit harder in comparison to other bolt-action sniper rifles. Best for long range engagements from Height,Loophole, or Distraction positions. Bullet drop becomes a factor around 200M, or about when the close range BASRs will lose OHK. When used in a sniper team, two body shots will dispatch an average enemy at up to player render distance. Would recommend the 6-10X Scope for estimating distance, target speed and bullet drop, as the 12X reduces your field of view too much. Average engagements happen with this rifle at about 200 to 400 yards (about a two to three dot hold). The average target speed (running) is a three dot lead, go for a body shot as you already have the range and target speed so a follow up shot should be relatively easy.
