XDefiant features a wide array of weapons, including Assault Rifles, SMGs, Shotguns LMGs, and of course, Sniper Rifles. These weapons hit hard, offer range, and put your aim to the test. Season 1 added a brand new Sniper to the game, providing another great choice in this weapon class.

Without further ado, check out our list of the best Sniper Rifles in the game.

All XDefiant Sniper Rifles ranked

  1. TAC-50
  2. L115
  3. M44

XDefiant features three snipers in total, all of which offer something different.


M44 loadout XDefiant
The M44 is the quickest Sniper in the game.

The M44 is a decent Sniper Rifle that stands out for its excellent range and handling. However, compared to the other Snipers in the category, it lacks the firepower to reliably eliminate enemies with one shot unless it’s a pin-point headshot.

That said, the M44 feels very swift in action, offering best-in-class ADS times and movement speed. So, if you’re looking for the most light-weight Sniper, this will do the trick.


L115 Sniper Rifle in XDefiant
L115 offers balance between speed and firepower.

The L115 is essentially the middle ground between the M44 and TAC-50. It packs a better damage output than the former and functions faster than the latter, so you’re not making any major compromises in terms of firepower or speed.

The weapon is best suited for quickscope enthusiasts who are confident in their aim, as the L115 can deliver one-shot kills, especially through precise shots in the upper torso region.

TAC-50 with XDefiant
The TAC-50 is currently the meta in the Sniper weapon class.

The TAC-50 is the best Sniper Rifle in XDefiant primarily because it’s consistently a one-shot kill if you land a body shot. While the TAC-50 falls short in mobility and handling compared to the M44 and L115, the right attachments can turn it into a powerful quickscope loadout, perfect for the Echelon or Phantoms Factions.

With Season 1 in full swing, make sure to check out the other newly introduced weapons – the LVOA-C and Sawed-Off Shotgun.
