The Drakon is a semi automatic Sniper Rifle in Black Ops 3. This weapon can take out enemies with 2 shots to the body or 1 shot if a neck or headshot is landed.
The weapon can be used effectively if used like a marksman rifle. The player needs to take distance and position themselves in order to hold down an area of the map preferably. The Drakon is not the best run and gun sniper because of its 2 shots to kill damage, so use it conservatively.
Recommended Attachments for the Drakon are the Ballistics CPU, Stock and Rapid Fire, the player can also choose an optic, we recommend the Thermal Scope. The Suppressor is also a great attachment on all snipers because it doesn’t negate the damage in any way.
- Damage: 80 or 1-2 shots to kill
- Rate of Fire: 277RPM
- Recoil: Low
- Scope Sway: Moderate
