BGMI: Best bolt action rifles to use in March 2022

There is a whole range of bolt action rifles available in BGMI for players to practice their sniping skills with and hone them further. But not all the available sniper rifles deliver the same impact, hence it becomes important for players both veterans and newbies to choose the right weapon.

Here are some of the best bolt action rifles in BGMI that will delivery consistency across all games, helping you grow as a player while making you a better sniper.

1) AWM - Arctic Warfare Magnum

One of the most popular and widely used bolt action rifles in BGMI, the AWM or Arctic Warfare Magnum is hands down one of the best snipers in the game. This beloved weapon is the only long ranged rifle that delivers more than 100 damage in one shot, making it a potent weapon for delivering a one shot kill.

However, it is quite difficult getting an AWM as it is only available through airdrops in the classic battle royale game mode of BGMI. But if a good sniper can hustle and risk getting their hands on it, the weapon has a significant chance of rewarding the player as it usually comes with a lot of attachments like compressor, muzzle, and more.

It comes with only 25 bullets in the airdrop, but each bullet has the potential to knock down an enemy with a Level 3 Helmet.

  • Base Damage: 105

  • Muzzle: Flash Hider. Compensator, Suppresor

  • Magazine: 5 Bullets (7 with an extended magazine)

  • Ammo: 300 Magnum


2) Kar98K

With the power to eliminate an enemy wearing a Level 2 Helmet with a clean headshot, this bolt action rifle has slowly peaked the interest of many BGMI players to become a great sniper rifle. It has a decent spawn rate which makes it more accessible to players, who love using it to take down enemies over long distances.

Being one of the oldest sniper rifles in the game, this ranged weapon has won the trust of the community members and it is actually the best possible sniper rifle to start out with if you are new to BGMI or just sniping in general.

  • Base Damage: 79

  • Muzzle: Flash Hider, Compensator, Suppressor

  • Magazine: 5 Bullets (7 with an extended magazine)

  • Ammo: 7.62 mm

3) Mosin Nagant

The latest bolt action rifle to make an entry in BGMI has an amazing rate of fire while being a clear threat as it has the potential to deal 79 points of damage. Along with muzzle attachments, it also comes with a bullet loop and a cheek pad, to further make it a great sniper rifle to use in the game.

This weapon works best with a 6x and an 8x scope, but due to its high bullet drop rate especially when the target is at a considerable range the gun has been overlooked by players quite a lot.

  • Base Damage: 79

  • Muzzle: Flash Hider, Compensator, or Suppressor

  • Magazine: 5 Bullets (7 with an extended magazine)

  • Ammo: 7.62 mm

  • Muzzle: Flash Hider, Compensator, Suppressor

  • Magazine: 5 Bullets (7 with an extended magazine)

  • Ammo: 7.62 mm

5) Win94

Popularly known by BGMI players as Winny, this weapon is exclusively available in Miramar, Sanhok, and Karakin. Unlike the bolt action rifles mentioned above this might not be potent at long range shots, but is a beast when it comes to mid and close range fights with a ridiculously fast reload speed.

This weapon is great to move around with and players can use it to quick scope enemy players, continuously peeking them and hitting some lighting fast shots. Do keep in mind though that using this weapon effectively will require some skill and a good aim.
