Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a fun game for snipers. With the weapons and customization, you’ve got a lot of choices you can make. Sure, you can’t really hit much by yourself outside of around 550-600m due to draw distance restrictions, but the bullet drop and limited zoom optics still creates a fun challenge for snipers.

This guide covers multiple sniper rifles and DMRs, demonstrating with a handy bullet drop chart (overlaid on corresponding reticles) for the best combinations of rifles, skills, attachments and optics. Feel free to save these images, but don’t forget to bookmark this page! As new combinations come out (through new rifles, new attachments, or new functionality in attachments) this guide will be updated.

Let’s start with the VC16 reticle.

with the MK14, Scorpio Scout, G28 and M110 DMRs

The VC16 is a relatively recent addition in optics, featuring a variable zoom. Note that this bullet drop chart is only valid when zoomed in at 6x; since Breakpoint doesn’t offer first focal plane optics, that’s the only way it’ll be useful for bullet drop. Be sure to note the equipment & skills in the upper-left of the image!

TARS101 Bullet Drop Chart

Bullet drop chart for the Recon A1 and MK17 Scout

The TARS101 only offers a 5x zoom, but it also has the most useful reticle even when not using it as a true bullet drop compensator. You can see that this allows you to make simple use of the Recon A1 out to 700m easily; while you won’t be hitting NPCs solo from that range, you can hit some fixed emplacements (such as turrets and power generators) at that range.

T5XI bullet drop chart

with the MSR

The T5XI historically has been the best optic as far as sight-picture and zoom range, and now we finally have a rifle that works well with the reticle as a bullet drop compensator (the MSR). While shooting past 600m is a challenge, you’ll rarely need to do so (nor will you be able to for soft targets).

RU Long-Range FOV Sight Bullet Drop Chart

with the VSK-50

The VSK-50 is the first rifle to give us the chance at using the RU Long Range FOV Sight for a bullet drop compensator. While it’s not perfect, it is fairly close, and if you’d like to play with more Russian gear in Breakpoint, this will be your combination!

    How about TAC50 which scope and loadout you recommended ? Thank you

    • wfl says:

      With the TAC-50 you’re probably best off using the T5XI and Ballistic Advantage; you’ll deal with very little bullet drop except at longer ranges.

  • Dylan says:

    You can shoot an NPC past 600m as of right now my longest shot is 700m

    • wfl says:

      Is that while playing coop, or solo?

      I don’t recall noticing any changes that impact rendering range, so I’ll have to take a look later and confirm.

        check video and picture captures for proof

    • Dylan lewis says:

      My longest kill shot is 969.00m with the tac50 unsuppressed and T5XI, ballistic advantage, bipod, rolling thunder (for the +20% damage boost). I accomplished that solo and saved the video as well for proof because I knew someone would call BS and also because It was an awesome shot and couldn’t believe I made the shot lol. it was very difficult to do but it is definitely possible!

      • wfl says:

        Nice! I’ve talked with some folks getting shots past 1km on things like drones; I just hardly play BP anymore, so my energy to accomplish those kinds of shots is a little diminished 🙂

  • dad says:

    Do you have one for the tars101 on the zastava M93

    • wfl says:

      Nope; I didn’t find a combination that worked accurately enough as a BDC for that, unfortunately, but other players have put together full guides on what the distances are at each has mark for all scopes.
