The L96A1 Arctic Wolf is a popular sniper rifle among players, and is often coveted for its looks. Despite its very noticeable appearance outside of arctic combat, it is used in all types of terrain.
The L96A1 Arctic Wolf features an arctic camouflage and an integrated suppressor, which provides quieter shots without a damage penalty. The damage is high compared to other bolt action sniper rifles, being able to take out players with extra protection (even Hauser) with a single shot. However, the AW will still tank at times as with all other sniper rifles, especially with shots to the leg and foot.
Accuracy is the lowest among all snipers, but is still more than adequate in most cases at 90. Newer snipers usually have more ammo, higher accuracy, portability and rate of fire. Despite this, the rifle remains popular for general sniping and especially quickscoping as the accuracy disadvantage is not a problem at close to medium range.
