The M-200 Ghillie features an integrated suppressor, tiger-stripe body camouflage, and iconic ghillie strips that work great with the default and desert camo outfits. Compared to its GP variant, the M-200, the Ghillie version offers higher portability, slightly higher accuracy, and 4 more rounds of ammo (6/18 compared to 5/15).
The suppressor almost completely masks the firing sound of the rifle. The magnification on the scope is slightly higher than the L115A3. Though the recoil is the highest out of all bolt-action snipers, the fact that the M-200 Ghillie is a bolt-action rifle negates the recoil: the time it takes to work the bolt between shots is enough for the recoil to settle down.
What makes the M-200 Ghillie so efficient, however, is its near-complete inability to be tanked by enemies. Other OHK (one hit kill) bolt-action rifles(such as the L96A1 and L115A3) can graze enemies and leave them with single-digit HP, not killing them. The M-200 Ghillie isn't perfect - it will tank on occasions, but this is extremely rare. Usually, even a grazing shot will be a kill.
The M-200 Ghillie surpasses its Black Market bolt-action rivals, the L96A1 Arctic Wolf and L115A3, by a great margin. The only noticeable downside to the M-200 Ghillie is the slightly lower portability than the L115A3 and, as with any other sniper rifle, the time it takes to unholster the weapon and prepare it to fire. For the sake of comparison, the unholster rate is about the same of the L96A1. Of course, players who prefer accuracy over power would be well-advised to check out the M24 series before making a purchase decision.
For avid no-scopers and snipers who like running around, the M-200 Ghillie is a solid choice, but the L115A3 may offer an advantage due to its lighter weight and its proven unscoped accuracy. Generally, no sniper rifles are recommended for CQC (close quarter combat), and the M-200 Ghillie is no different.
