Video Notes: 
The upcoming release of Sniper Elite 5 provides a good opportunity to look at games with the best sniping mechanics that you can play right now. In this video, we cover a wide range of first-person shooters, including single-player, combined arms multiplayer games, and some pretty hardcore military sim titles. This list includes something for everyone, from casual to competitive and hardcore gamers. 

Games that get sniping right are actually a bit rare because creating good sniping experiences in video games is complicated. Sniping or even long-range shooting isn’t easy for developers to model and balance in video games. Real-world distance shooting involves so many factors like range, windage, and drag, which requires a decent amount of math to do correctly. Video games also aren’t that great at simulating the mindset snipers experience, like the stress and pressure they go through taking the perfect shot. Developers compromise in different ways for different audiences to make sniping in video games fun. 

We’ll take a look at a variety of approaches to sniping, including games for more casual players, such as Sniper Elite, Sniper Ghost Warrior, and Hitman 2 Sniper Assassin. After that, we’ll dial in on games with great sniping and bullet physics for competitive multiplayer fans, including Escape From Tarkov and Battlefield. Next, we’ll hit the games for the hardcore crowd that give the most realistic experience possible, with toward Arma and Squad. Finally, we’ll give some thought to the pros and cons of sniping in virtual reality.

This video covers a host of games out now on PC, PS4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. Let us know what you’re favorite game is or if there’s one that we missed, and we’ll include it in future videos!

  1. Arma 3 should have been considered for this list…..it's one of best Sniping experience

  2. Wow. You guys really made a video about sniping games but forgot to add ghost recon. Why? Just why? Please put some more work in your videos. Its very sad to see you guys not giving enough credits to ubisoft games these days even when they actually totally deserve it.😮‍💨

  3. Glad to see some sniping game list on YouTube.

  4. Narrative of Self is the result of a feedback loop between “Separate Self” & Cosmos 🎈

  5. Battlefield 3 Sniping was PERFECTION

    & I think SniperElite should’ve been #1
    &
    GhostWarrior #2

  6. Dude… VR is probably as cheap as it will get, you can get an Oculus Quest 2 for $299

  7. What's your opinion on Ghost Recon Wildlands?

  8. Was hoping to se Rising Storm 2 on the list. Oh well, the game often gets overlooked, so I'm not surprised.

  9. Ghost recon wildlands needs to be on this list too, the feeling of long range shot is awesome

  10. America's army was such a dope game considering it was simply a recruitment tool xD

  11. You forgot: Halo, combat evolved. And the borderlands franchise

  12. Attention, one and all. I call to arms, my brothers and sisters who got our asses kicked, playing Halo combat evolved.
    Those who love the sweet sniping of giant heads and easy crits

  13. Great list but Insurgency Sandstorm is another great one.

  14. Here's how to snipe in squad. Don't pick marksman.

  15. Man no arma 3 the old squad but man the bullet drop and around 500 to 600 m shot is always fun to find

  16. Wow your content is embarrasing

    Unsubbed

  17. Far Cry series has some good sniping also

  18. gun world vr it's a physics's based gun game it's got a lot of guns not only snipers it's got a verity of attachments realistic bullet drop and I love sniping in it

  19. I worked as a designated defensive marksman for 4 years with Triple Canopy and on the authentic/hardest difficult levels some of these games do have a semblance of realism. One thing a good portion of them get wrong is the size of enemy combatants in an optic at distance. Regardless of the magnification, at 1000+ meters a human sized target doesn’t fill 3/4 of your viewing field. But I certainly appreciate the research and effort these studios put into their games. Exponentially better than the joke that is COD, with the ability to make headshots with an SBR at 300+ meters on mobile targets with ease. Tarkov and Insurgency are both a good time, I play with a number of guys I’ve deployed with and it’s a great way to stay in touch and have fun. It is cool to see the back up sights on optics and they take into account height over bore and what not.

  20. SE4 of first leval in tower. I keep falling when in scope of crouching. I assumed the kick back force from rifle keeps me in but I keep falling off. I assume I have to use the side wall of leaning out to be able stay in tower..

  21. SGW:Contracts 2 was my first game of this ilk. I love it. I'm eager to get into more. Never was a fan of first-person at all, but I came from the recent Splinter Cell games ie Blacklist which (hot take) has been my favorite of the series mostly because of the gadgets available (drones, etc.), so after seeing similar mechanics in the SGWC2 trailer, I decided it was worth trying. I was not disappointed.

    I suppose I now have a "loyalty" to the series since I tried it first and I much prefer the near future setting, but after seeing this list, I'm thinking I should give Elite a try.

  22. Escape from Tarkov is still the best

  23. Ghost Recon Wild Lands and Ghost recon Break point

  24. oyaah the first game that u ave played it out what's name of it…

  25. Infinkill info moc watee beside brekafst ha ditchr

  26. Riley skoes oh beside brekafats kwecahs owe

  27. Bill ewityer in mouth forks stela bad eye aim grosmeat rochg
