Ghost Recon Wildlands - Best Sniper Rifle - MSR Location

Location of the MSR Sniper Rifle, arguably the best Sniper Rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

This guide will show players the location of the MSR Sniper Rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands, as well as a step-by-step walkthrough to help you get past the enemies in the area. While the HTI Sniper Rifle does more damage than the MSR, the MSR outperforms the HTI in almost every category, putting it in the discussion for the best Sniper Rifle in the game.

How to Get the MSR Sniper Rifle

Although that is the location of the MSR, the mine entrance is slightly northwest of there.

The MSR Sniper Rifle is located in the Montuyoc province, to the west of your starting province, Itacua. Players will need to head into the mountains on the west side of Montuyoc; more specifically, the Choza Padre Mine. If you don’t know where that is, you can expand the image in this article to look for yourself. It might be a long trip, so be sure to snag a helicopter to avoid trouble on the ground and speed things along.

Make sure that the two guards who patrol outside the mine don't spot you.

We would advise taking a position in the hills that surround the Choza Padre Mine after you arrive. Once in place, deploy your drone. You should be able to spot a minimum of four enemies (one being a sniper). Two more enemies will walk out of the mine’s entrance as they patrol.

Whether with a squad of people or with the AI, perform a couple of Sync Marks to take out the four bad guys outside the mine. It’s easy to get them all before they realizie what’s going on, especially if you’re using the T5Xi Tactical.

When they’re down, nail the two guards who wander in and out the mine. Once they're taken care of, you should now be able to walk around on the outside of the Choza Padre Mine without being pestered.

There's not a lot in this room besides the MSR Sniper Rifle, so it should be easy to spot.

Unfortunately, you need to go into the Choza Padre Mine in order to grab the MSR Sniper Rifle. This can be difficult, as there are several enemies patrolling the hallways. First, sneak into the mine and look straight ahead, taking out any guards you see.

Additionally, make sure you take out the enemy manning the machine gun. As you move forward, take your first left, then follow that corridor all the way to the end. There, you'll enter a large room where the MSR Sniper Rifle is located.

You could argue that the MSR Sniper Rifle is the best in all of Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Grab the MSR Sniper Rifle from the Weapon Case, then backtrack until you’re out of the Choza Padre Mine. You could still bump into an enemy or two, but you should be fine.

Once outside, take your pick between the APC or helicopter, depending on how far you plan to travel and what you intend to do upon arrival. 

While the MSR Sniper Rifle is arguably the best in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you should also consider snagging the ACR Assault Rifle, or even the M4A1 Assault Rifle. If you find the MSR sniper rifle doesn't fire fast enough, be sure to get the G28 sniper rifle, as it offers an extremely high rate-of-fire.
