What is considered a longshot in this game?

I need 7 more longshots to get the last reticle with the reflex sight

A long ranged kill.


it is a kill with a weapon where your final connected shot is at its minimum damage value, it is a different distance for many of the weapons, and is affected by the long barrel attachment

Did you really just instruct someone to search the Internet for the truth?
I never thought I would die like this, but I always hoped...

Ah ok, thanks. I was wondering why on my M27, I got a longshot medal for one kill and didn't get one at the same distance on the Mk 48.

What is it for a Sniper Rifle then? Doesn't that keep a consistent damage for all ranges?

I was never aware that snipers were awarded longshots because I am pretty sure the sniper bullet never loses damage and that range does not effect multipliers.

Were is Arc when you need him...

There's a longshot requirement for sniper camos, so, yes, there are sniper rifle longshots.

was hoping this topic would tell me how they work ._.

Looks like from the top of the plane to the bridge on Turbine is a long shot for the DSR.

Not sure if it's the same for all sniper rifles.
