The L96A1 Arctic Wolf is a relatively popular sniper rifle among players, and is often coveted for its looks. Despite its very noticeable camo outside of arctic combat, it is still used in all types of terrain.
The L96A1 Arctic Wolf features an arctic camo (as would be expected from the name) and an integrated suppressor (despite what the Black Market description), providing the quietness of a sniper without the damage penalty. The damage is high relative to other bolt action sniper rifles, being able to take out players with extra protection (even Hauser) with a single shot, but will still tank at times as with all other sniper rifles, especially with shots to the leg and foot. The accuracy is the lowest among all snipers, but is still more than adequate in most cases at 90. Relative to other snipers, it has more downsides including low ammo compared to newer sniper rifles, average portability, and a less than average rate of fire, draw speed and reload speed.
Despite what would appear to be a poor sniper when compared to newer snipers, the L96A1 Arctic Wolf is still able to hold its ground well, shining greatly when it comes to quick-scoping (along with its variants). Among all snipers, it and its variants, come out among at the top of the best snipers for quick-scoping, with shots generally hitting much more often than some other snipers if quick-scoping is done properly. This alone can make up for all of its draw backs, and is where its lower accuracy is irrelevant.
