Best Sniper Build | One Shot All Enemies

Artisan and the Mosin Nagant | Gray Zone Warfare: Best Sniper Build Guide (One Shot)

Before we start diving into the nitty and gritty of the best sniper rifle setup, you will need to get Rank 2 Reputation with Artisan.

You can do so by completing the tasks she gives you, with Rank 2 requiring about 700 Reputation. Considering you get 100-200 Reputation per task, it shouldn’t take too long!

To help you out, we have a guide covering all of the tasks in the game. It’s primarily focused on the Mithras faction, but it should also help out for players from the other factions.

Marked Mosin Nagant items from Artisan

Once you’ve obtained enough Reputation with Artisan, you’ll need to purchase the following items from her:

  • Mosin (S)Make sure to purchase the longer and more expensive one. It should cost 2,120 USD and comes with better accessories than the 382 USD variant.
  • Mosin Magazine – Buy two or three for starters.
  • Tri-Rail – It’s a Sights/Scope part in the Weapon Parts category at the bottom.
  • Mosin Archangel – Improved Stock part for the Mosin, found in the Weapon Parts category.
Marked ACOG sight items from Gunny

When you finish shopping with Artisan, stay on the Vendors screen and check out Gunny’s shop. You’ll want to buy the following from him:

  • ACOG 4x – Sight/Scope part.
  • ACOG Mount – Required to be able to use the ACOG 4x Scope.

In total, you will spend about 4,500 USD to get the gun and all the parts. Fairly expensive, but well worth it!

But, now that we’re done shopping, it’s time to equip everything we got.
