You do realize MS40 is a location that is not suitable for a sniper gun and a ghilli suit right?

If you try to employ that equipment there, you will be under gunned, stick out like a sore thumb and snag on various parts of the playing environment that liks to reach out and grab ghilli suits.

So I would skip the bolty, its not a practical and is in reality a pretty bad piece of equipment to use as a first gun. A guy with a pistol would even outgun you.

Not to mention... due to the location/geography of the MS40 area, its super windy. Full auto capable AEG + wind = suck. Sniper + wind = suuuper suck.

just upgrade that

i've used my ghillie at MS40, not too practical unless you want to sit by a random area there are few people at (base of the birm, only used for attack defend, which is the ONLY time i can see the ghillie being effective)

also, unless you are buying a REALLY nice sniper rifle, it won't do too well

if you want to deviate from the boring assault rifle do something like Jin and get a kickass shotgun and run around destroying people or something. dont get a bolt action.

you don't need to listen to me...but listen to Guges

Heck, he doesn't even need to upgrade that even, just play.

And play a lot before you upgrade. No sense on wasting time and $50.00 for 6 feet more effective range for a 350 upgraded to 400 fps shooter...
