Shooter games are synonymous with adrenaline and fun. Regardless of how many hours you put into a shooter game, in each match you will be at the edge of your seat, doing your best to eliminate the enemy before they catch you. I am a big fan of first-person shooter (FPS) games, especially those where aiming is important, as I really like to test my sharpshooter skills. And, given that I’ve played quite a few FPS games, I thought it would be a good idea to list the best shooter games with sniper rifles. Before I made my list, I decided to do a bit of research to find other great sniper games I might have missed out on. After looking through a few sites, I found a list of the top 10 sniper games I’ll share if you want to check after you finish reading the article.
There were a couple of games I hadn’t heard of. So, I immediately went ahead and gave them a try to see if they were any good. After spending some time with each of the games, I rounded down my top 3 favorite sniper games of all time. I’ll provide a short review for each of the games below.
Sniper Strike – Best for multiplayer combat
Sniper Strike is one of my all-time favorites. I’ve been playing this game for almost 2 years, and it never gets old. One of the reasons I love this game so much is because of the variety of multiplayer modes. Not only can you try your hand taking down other players around the world, but you can also join clans to blast your way through exciting missions. I also like that you build up points as you play, which helps you earn higher ranks as you climb up a worldwide leaderboard.
If you are just getting started with the game, my recommendation is that you focus on upgrading your weapons before you aim for the higher-level missions. The difficulty level does advance quickly, so you might have a hard time beating later levels if you haven’t upgraded your sniper rifles. You do have the option to pay for upgrades, or you can also join a clan to play through missions with the help of other players.
Cover Fire – Best weapon selection
Another one of my favorites is Cover Fire. Although it is not strictly a sniper game, it definitely has some of the best first-person shooter mechanics I’ve seen on a mobile game. I also like the weapon selection as you can switch from a variety of firearms including, pistols, rifles, grenades, shotguns, and, of course, snipers. Another plus I found is that you can play the game offline, so you can play the shooter anywhere you go, even if you don’t have an internet connection.
While I love the gameplay mechanics, I wish more could be done about the graphics. They are not bad, but the quality of the graphics does not come close to the highly refined and smooth graphics of top gaming platforms. In any case, I shouldn’t complain as the graphics easily beat out many other mobile shooter games.
Sniper 3D Gun Shooter – Best missions
Last but not least, my third pick is Sniper 3D Gun Shooter. What I really like about it is that there are hundreds of missions to choose from, so you can switch up the game and test your shooting skills in a variety of settings. The strength of the game truly shines through in the variety of worlds, objectives, enemies and adrenaline-inducing scenarios. I like how one minute I can be exploding helicopters and just a few minutes later I can be killing zombies or robots. The diversity of game modes and missions truly keeps the game fresh, and every time I play, it is as fun as the first time I played it.
The only thing I’m not a fan of is the ads. Thankfully they don’t appear that often and they are not intrusive. In any case, you do have the option to upgrade to an ad-free premium version, which also unlocks several exclusive missions.
So, these are my top 3 favorite sniper games of all time. Whether you want to play with other people online or you simply want to put your marksman skills to the test, I’m certain you will love any of these games. I would love to know what your favorite sniper games are so let me know if you find better ones than the games I included in the list.
