It Takes a Good Eye and a Steady Hand
Ask any elite sniper, either in these sniper games or in real life, and they’ll tell you that it’s a “whole lot of nothing and then everything at once.” You see, in the movies, you only see the part where the sniper shoots. In real life, a sniper has to be patient. They might wait for 6, 7, even 12 hours before their target shows up. We’ve set up our free sniper games online category to be both exciting and realistic. You’ll need plenty of patience, skill, and most of all, a steady hand. One little twitch before you pull that trigger, and you’ll miss the target. That could be the difference between you getting away and getting killed, so you better make sure you’re ready before you squeeze that trigger!
How to Strike from the Shadows Like an Elite Sniper
Your mission is simple: get into position and take out the target. This is how it works in real life as well as free online sniper games for adults. Well, it sounds simple, but things don’t always work out as planned in sniper shooting games. Whether you’re shooting at a single target or taking aim at a huge cluster of enemies in one of our sniper zombie games, you’ll have to make sure of a couple things before you decide to make your move. We may not be elite shooters in real life, but let us be the first to tell you as seasoned sniper elite games players that you need at least three tips to pull off the perfect shot.
Lead Your Target
What does “lead your target” mean, you ask? Think about it this way. If you’re positioned five thousand feet away, and your bullet travels four thousand feet a second, then it’s going to take more than a full second to get to your target. If your target is walking around, driving, or moving in any other fashion, this means that you need to predict where they will be in a full second and aim there. Don’t shoot where they are, shoot where they will be by the time your bullet gets there, make sense? If they suddenly bend down to tie their shoes right after you shoot, well, that’s just a bit of bad luck. In most online sniper games, though, if you can lead the target, you can hit the target.
Watch the Wind
Of course, even if you master the art of predicting your target’s movements, it won’t do you any good when the wind pushes your bullet off course. In most of these sniper war games, you won’t have to worry about wind, but in some of them (and in real life), you will. How can you know which way the wind is blowing? If you don’t have any instruments to tell you, take a look around. Are their waving flags, or swaying trees, or flying leaves? If it’s blowing to the left, you’ll have to shoot to the right. All of this on TOP of leading your target if they’re moving. See why real sniper games are so tough? Even some stickmen sniper games are starting to include this tricky mechanic.
Finish the Job
Finally, remember that there’s no room for mercy in sniper assassin games. If you want to complete your mission and return to base in one piece, you will have to make sure of one thing above all else: when you stop firing, there’s nobody left to send for reinforcements. If you’re going after a single target, this means following through after your opening shot. If they’re still standing, you better scramble to get that second shot off. Some of the best sniper games we tested for this category require you to take out groups of opponents and/or to do so within a certain time limit. This is way harder than it sounds, because once that first bullet hits, they either scatter or fire back at you!
In the same way that a sniper will make sure nothing comes between their position and their target, we’ve made sure that no filter or blocker will stop you from playing the sniper simulator games you love. What we mean is, you can pull up these sniper games from any computer and just play them directly in a web browser without being blocked! Even if the computer has game blockers activated, all you need is the internet to play. There’s nothing to download, and as always, everything is free. Whether you want to play sniper games online or hop into our action games category for a little more variety.
