The Snowstorm update for Warface is now available. It introduces a sniper rifle that has the potential to kill just about anyone in one go. This update also fixes a vulnerability that allows some players to launch the game without the anti-cheat enabled.

Superior Firepower

Are you looking for a sniper rifle that can take enemies out very efficiently? If so, you’ll love the new Barrett MRAD Mk22! This weapon boasts incredibly high base and minimum damage numbers, with damage multipliers to the body and limbs that are just a class above the rest. The power of this sniper rifle is so good that you can potentially one-shot even a well-equipped opponent.

But what are the downsides? Well, it does have a very strong recoil. So, you should be mindful about firing bullets in quick succession as your accuracy will suffer on subsequent shots. Moreover, its hip-fire accuracy leaves much to be desired. So, this weapon is only good if you shoot enemies from afar using the built-in scope. 

Lastly, its Aim-down Sights (ADS) speed is considerably lower than the likes of the Alpine Special or the AMP DSR-1 Custom. Other than that, it is quite an effective sniper rifle for long-range combat.
