Gunsmith. Part 15 – Escape From Tarkov Guide

Mechanic puts us up to the task. He wants us to modify M1A that can shoot over long distances. The fan-favorite M1A that has been dominating for multiple patches before, is needed by Sniper, the same guy that we built the DVL-10 for. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the quest dialogue and see which items you need to attach to the weapon and complete the quest.

Gunsmith. Part 15 Description

This one is for Sniper, it seems he’s about to set out to the woods somewhere to hunt down the villains for a week.

He needs an M1A, fitted with Ultimak M8 mount, Nightforce 7-35-56 scope, T1 reflex sight, HOLOsun tactical device. Ergonomics above 20, recoil sum below 400 and a total weight of 7.3 kg or less.
