One-Shot Sniper Build – Model 700

This is the most powerful sniper build in the game so far, as it can melt any player instantly with one headshot. This also means that you need to be good with the Sniper as headshot are guaranteed one shot kill. The build is not so useful in PVE, but it is really good in PVP battles and a beast in Dark Zone.

Model 700

Sharpshooter Specialization

  • One in the Head (Tier 5)
  • Deft Hands (Tier 3)
  • Breath Control (Tier3)


  • Healing Chem Launcher: Allows quick healing
  • Booster Hive: Increased movement speed
  • Deflector Drone: defensive options against other players using this build

Secondary Weapon

You can have any weapon as your secondary with this build, as it honestly does not matter when you will be using the sniper mainly. So any decent weapon can work best.


You will want to maximize the Brand set “Airaldi Holdings” as it provides relevant bonuses to your marksman rifle. Make sure that you equip decent armor and gear of at least Epic or High-End tiers that give more weapon damage, Headshot Damage and Critical Hit Damage.

Any other equipment you put can be of other brands, however, you will want to use these to either bolster your damage output more or provide more health for you. The fewer attribute rolls you have, the higher individual buff they give to the one wearing it. Marksman Rifle damage is best.

Equipping any mods to the gear should emphasize weapon damage, so you would want to use the mods that make this possible. If you have something that has Hardened as a talent, you can get a defensive boost.
