Wildlands' New Sniper Rifle Can Blow Up A Car, Somehow

The most powerful gun in Ghost Recon: Wildlands' new "Fallen Ghosts" DLC is a sniper rifle that can blow up cars with a single bullet.

Within the expansion, which released as part of the game's season pass on June 30, is a sniper rifle exclusive to "Fallen Ghosts," and it is a gun you'll want to try out. The BFG-50A is a semi-auto, .50 calibre rifle with maxed out damage, accuracy, and range. One shot, one kill.

You can blow up literal carloads of enemies in the Bolivian jungle with a single shot of this rifle. This gun is ridiculously powerful, and you can even add a Suppressor attachment. Snipe them from a distance, and they will never see what hit'em. (Killing carloads of civilians is still generally frowned upon.)

The BFG-50A is unlocked simply through story progression — head to the Western Precinct section and grab your intel marked on the map to unlock the missions.

If you decided to skip the season pass, you can buy Fallen Ghosts separately starting June 6.


    Who's going to tell the author what anti-materiel rifles are for?

      Yeah but shooting a car through the engine block is not gonna make it explode like that not even putting a round into the fuel tank would do that. Anti material rifles do not make vehicles explode they disable them.

      There are enough youtube videos of people blowing stuff up with .50 rifles (various rounds, various effects).
      Granted though, that explosion is a little over the top, even a HEIAP round going through the windscreen wouldn't have quite that effect.


        I should of said about ammunition the guns in this game use standard jacketed rounds not specialized ones like high explosive incendiary so putting a round through the block or into the fuel tank would never cause and explosion like the one in the GIF.

      and said author must never have played Farcry 3 and 4 because they have the exact same weapon.. and then theres the AMR in fallout New Vegas with the explosive ammo that makes deathclaw hunting so fun

    sorry OP but you can already do this in the base game? and have been able to since launch.

      Yeah, the HTI un-silenced can already one-shot most escort vehicles. I always kept it on hand to quickly deal with unwanted helicopters.
