BGMI players and fans eagerly wait for Crafton to release updates from time to time. These updates include several new features that comprehensively enrich the BR experience. Following the success of the last few updates, the developers rolled out the 2.1 update on July 14.
The update has introduced several features, however, the craze about the new Lynx AMR is unmatched.
Everything BGMI Players Need to Know About the New Lynx AMR Gun
The Lynx Anti-Material Rifle (AMR) is the newest addition to the sniper rifle range of weapons in the BR title. The weapon changed the dynamics of the game when it appeared in the PC version. As a result, when the patch notes were released, the inclusion of the gun created a huge buzz in the Indian gaming community.
With a base damage of 118 per bullet, the Lynx AMR has successfully positioned itself as the deadliest weapon in the BGMI. The gun uses .50 caliber ammo and is extremely rare to find. It is launched as a special air-drop (normal air-drop and flare drop) weapon. However, to prevent a complete genocide, the chances of getting a gun have been reduced.
The sniper can be equipped with a red dot sight at 8x radius and can be used in both mid- and long-range combat. However, the gun cannot be equipped with any foregrips or extended magazines.
The Lynx AMR is the only gun in Battleground Mobile India that has the power to destroy an enemy wearing a Level 3 helmet or vest with a single bullet. In addition, .50 caliber bullets can easily penetrate vehicles. It is set to change the course of classic as well as custom matches.
Also, BGMI players should remember that the gun only comes with 10 bullets, which highlights that it should be used by designated snipers in the squad. Otherwise, the responsibility will become when the bullets run out.
