CoD AW Lynx Sniper Rifle Overview

The Lynx is a sniper rifle that was originally featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts but has now returned in Advanced Warfare. It deals a heavy amount of damage and has the best range out of all snipers in the game. Unlike the MORS this weapon is semi-automatic, meaning shots can be fired in quick succession after one another without having to re-chamber a bullet.

The Lynx has an okay magazine size but without proper aim you can burn through ammo fairly quickly since it fires similar to a MK14. It’s also the very first sniper rifle that players have access to in multiplayer at level 1.
