The Division: Here’s A Tip To Easily Kill Elite Snipers In Dark Zone

The Division

Tom Clancy’s The Division features Dark Zone that the players can enter to earn rewards and explore a world beyond what is available in the story of the game. Dark Zone is essentially a completely different type of gameplay experience compared to the main game where survival is the utmost importance for the players.

In the Dark Zone for The Division, players might come across a set of Elite Snipers that can prove to be troublesome with their sniper rifles. However, there is a trick to take them down easily and force them to switch out their sniper rifles for a weaker weapon.


If you are exploring the Dark Zone and come across an elite sniper, your best bet is to try getting close to them and engage them in close combat scenario instead of trying to shoot them from far away. This trick will make them switch to their secondary weapons which are usually weaker than their sniper rifle and should make it easy to take them down in the Dark Zone.
