How to improve sniping in BGMI?
Hydra Dynamo is considered the sniping god of BGMI.

You might be standing in the open to shoot the enemy with your sniper but your enemies will knock you in seconds with their Assault Rifles (ARs). Try to move constantly so the enemy gets a hard defeating you. Follow the formula of ‘Locate, Aim & Shoot’

They’ll be aware that you’re using a sniper if you’re peeking constantly from the same location. You have to use some different tactics such as flanking which is rotating in the opposite direction of the enemy and attacking them surprisingly. Use both the left & right peek option to knock your enemy.
