Best Sniper Rifles In RDR2 And How To Get Them

There are two best sniper rifles that are best - Rolling Block and Carcano. We have discussed them in detail below, check it out.

1: Rolling Block | Best Sniper Rifle In RDR2

The best part is that Rolling Block is customizable, and players can unlock it pretty early in Red Dead Redemption 2. You will be able to buy it from Gunsmith for $187 after Chapter 2 Mission called "The Sheep and the Goats". Listed below are the stats of Rolling Block - Default Stats vs Max Stats. Please NOTE: Max Stats figure you get after customization & maxed affinity.


Rolling Block Stats - Default

  • Damage: 3.3/4.0
  • Range: 3.3/4.0
  • RoF: 1.2/4.0
  • Reload: 1.5/4.0

Rolling Block Stats - Max

2: Carcano | Best Sniper Rifle In RDR2

Carcano is the second best Sniper Rifle in Red Dead Redemption 2. As you can see in the stats provided below - it has a good rate of fire and reloads speed as compared to the Rolling Block, but it lacks just slightly in the damage section. Furthermore, unlike Rolling Block, Carcano is not available in the early part of the game. You will be able to purchase Carcano from Gunsmith for $190 after "Goodbye, Dear Friend" mission. If you are going for a long range combat then without any thinking go for a Carcano Rifle. It produces great results when used with scopes.
