Apex Legends Season 4: Kraber .50-cal Sniper Weapon Gameplay Guide - Tips And Tricks For The BEST Sniper

Apex Legends Season 4 is here, and the Kraber might not be the newest sniper rifle on the block.

While the Sentinel may have announced itself onto the scene, there’s still plenty of snipers that can reward you with wins on the World’s Edge.

The Kraber remains an obscenely powerful long-range weapon and probably the best sniper in the game.

Here's our guide to using the Kraber .50-cal sniper.


Kraber .50-cal Sniper

It might not be easy to find, but you’ll be sure you did since it offers unparalleled damage that can kill a fully armoured Legend with a single headshot.

Here are our tips on how to find the Kraber, why it can’t accept any attachments, and how to make the most of it.

Where To Find The Kraber

Regardless of which loot rarity area you go to, the Kraber won’t be found anywhere in World’s Edge or Kings Canyon.

That’s because the powerful rifle can only be found in care packages which means it isn’t the kind of gun you’d stumble upon often. Trust us though, it’s worth the effort.

What Attachments And Ammo Does It Take?

As a care package exclusive, the Kraber doesn’t take any standard attachments – but does come pre-fitted with a nifty scope.

The rifle’s in-built optic can switch from six-times magnification to ten-times magnification.

That improved accuracy is important, too, because the gun only comes with twelve shots – four in the magazine, and eight in reserve.

Unlike most weapons, you can’t simply grab fresh ammo either, so once you’ve run out of ammo you may as well drop the Kraber.

Kraber Tips And Tricks

The Kraber is one of Apex Legends’ most powerful weapons. While it can kill with a single headshot, it can down an opponent with a single body shot.

Bullets can penetrate enemies, too, so you could potentially hit the jackpot and down a squad in a single bullet.

Pair that with the versatile scope, and the Kraber is a force to be reckoned with from mid and long-range.

That said, it’s not for a new player. The Kraber requires deadeye accuracy to be able to take out a moving target and takes time to reload which makes every miss an opportunity for an enemy to counterattack.

Also, players will need to de-scope to prep a new round after every shot, meaning it’s not simply a case of peppering a squad from distance.
