The Lynx is a Semi Automatic Sniper Rifle in Advanced Warfare which made its first appearance in Ghosts. The Lynx is a relatively weak Sniper Rifle in comparison to the other Sniper Rifle’s in Advanced Warfare.
Because of the Damage Multipliers on this weapon, it can achieve a one shot kill with a Headshot only. The Recoil is low to medium and the sway is controllable with the Ballistic CPU attached.
Recommended Attachments for the Lynx are the Ballistic CPU to control the sway. The ACOG or Iron Sights turns the Lynx into a nice marksman type rifle, combined with Stock will make you a lot harder to hit in medium to long range engagements.
TOP TIP: Use the Suppressor with the Lynx – it has little or no effect on the Damage rating.
The best Lynx variants are the Tack-Driver(Elite), Snake Oil(Marksman) and the Quarterback(Professional). The Tack-Driver adds 3 to Accuracy, taking 1 from Damage, Fire Rate and Handling. The Snake Oil adds 2 to Handling and takes 1 from Fire Rate and Mobility. The Combatant is also a great variant which adds 2 to Handling and takes 2 from Accuracy.
