As someone who personally likes to play with snipers, one of the first weapons I wanted to test is the 3-Line Rifle, one of the only two currently available snipers in the game, alongside the Kar98K.
It's a fantastic weapon for players who like one-shot kills as it boasts immense power capable of killing people with just one bullet in most cases.
Of course, there is a big downside as well. Described as one of the heaviest weapons, the 3-Line Rifle is really slow both in terms of manoeuvrability and in terms of your mobility. You will feel that slowness in your movement and when trying to aim down sight.
But for those of you confident in your sniping skill, this rifle can provide opportunities for some stylish multi-kills, especially if you use the right attachments.
Best 3-Line Rifle class setup in COD Vanguard beta
With this build, we will try to negate the negative sides of the 3-Line Rifle and make it somewhat more explosive, so that you don't have to wait a lot between shots.
These are currently the best attachments for the 3-Line Rifle in COD Vanguard beta:
- Barrel: 270MM Voz Carbine
As we've mentioned, the weapon is really heavy, and the 270MM Voz Carbine will improve ADS speed while reducing damage range, which is not really an issue on mostly small Vanguard maps.
- Stock: ZAC Custom MZ
Further improves ADS speed and overall recoil
- Rear Grip: Leather Grip
Even more ADS speed. This weapon is really slow, and we need that fast reaction time in order to take out targets before they spot you.
- Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
It gives +1 on bullet penetration, making you even more deadly.
- Proficiency: Awareness
It helps us to spot the enemies faster.
- Kit: Deep Breath
Improves your breath-holding, which means better control and thus easier aiming.
And there you have it, the best 3-Line Rifle loadout in COD Vanguard beta.
This powerful build keeps all the strong sides of the sniper, but also significantly improves your ADS speed, which is really important for snipers on the currently available maps that are mostly small and tight and where you don't have much time to prepare for shots.
