Atlas 20mm Gun Review: Best Class setups, Variants & Attachments for the Atlas 20mm in Advanced Warfare.

The Atlas 20mm is a Semi Automatic Sniper Rifle, which is mounted to the shoulder and features no hip fire. It has the highest Damage among the Sniper Rifles.

The Atlas 20mm is a One Shot kill from the shins up and is simply a beast of a Sniper Rifle. It is very effective in long Range engagements and unlike the other snipers it is not recommended in close quarter combat. Mainly because of the inability to fire from the hip(no no-scoping).

Recommended attachments for the Atlas 20mm are the Ballistic CPU to lower the weapons high idle sway, the Stock and the Parabolic Microphone.
