Long range: 36~42 (Headshot: 75~88)

Its zoom is not really good for LONG Ranges.
Its scope is better suited for short to mid-ranges since its zoom is not really powerful. However, it can be used some times for long ranges, but it will take skill and a bit of luck to calculate the bullet drop and consider movement of the target
Its an bolt action sniper, meaning that after you shoot you will have to unzoom to pull the bolt back before firing again. The time taken to ready the rifle to fire again means recoil doesn't exist.

Short range : 2 bodyshots , 1 headshot

Long Range: 3 bodyshots or 2 headshots
