Crosshair placement is one of the most important factor in BGMI as you can defeat the enemy quickly if the position of your crosshair is correct. Often, players tend to open their scope way before aiming at the enemy. This mistake can cost them their virtual life.

One huge mistake that players make while holding a sniper is that they restrict themselves to a fixed place and wait for the enemy to peek. You might be standing in the open to shoot the enemy with your sniper but your enemies will knock you in seconds with their Assault Rifles (ARs). Try to move constantly so the enemy gets a hard defeating you. Follow the formula of ‘Locate, Aim & Shoot’.

3. Change your location

Often players tend to shoot at the enemy from the same location. Your enemy might be as skilled as you are. They’ll be aware that you’re using a sniper if you’re peeking constantly from the same location. You have to use some different tactics such as flanking which is rotating in the opposite direction of the enemy and attacking them surprisingly. Use both the left & right peek option to knock your enemy.
