CoD AW Atlas 20MM Sniper Rifle Overview

Want to look absolutely terrifying on-screen in Advanced Warfare? Then you might want to try out the Atlas 20mm sniper rifle. This thing is absolutely monstrous but is equally powerful. It has the highest damage in its class but this is the only sniper that REQUIRES you to be ADS (aiming down sights) to fire it.

That being said, the Atlas 20mm is a semi-auto sniper that can be fired at a decent rate. It deals massive damage meaning nearly every shot that lands on an opponent is going to be a one-hit kill. Alongside the MORS it is one of the best snipers for quickscoping, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Available Attachments:

  • Ballistic CPU
  • Stock

If you’re running this sniper we highly recommend using the Ballistic CPU and extended mag attachments. This helps steady your aim and keep you firing for a bit longer without a reload.
