Battlefield 4 QBU-88 (Type 88)


Battlefield 4 QBU-88The Battlefield 4 QBU-88 (or Type 88) is a Chinese semi-automatic sniper rifle that can be used and unlocked by the Recon class in Battlefield 4 multiplayer. The QBU-88 in Battlefield 4 can be unlocked and used by any faction, and is very similar to other semi-automatic sniper rifles, such as the Russian SVD.

The Battlefield 4 QBU-88 is a good all-round semi automatic sniper rifle that’s suitable at most ranges. It’s a great weapon for closer quarter combat, especially when paired with a smaller scope. It was first introduced in 1997 and has since become the standard sniper rifle in the Chinese military. There is an LMG based on the same platform, called the QBB-95, and an assault rifle, the QBZ-95.

    This gun by far was my favorite! I Love how each shot was on contact of where you wanted it to hit. I am very glad DICE is keeping the QBU in BF4. One thing it coming out WITH the game when it is first released, or when the first DLC comes out. Oh, and i also like how good this gun was when it came to close quarters. I used KOBRA sight, GRIP, and LASER sight on this gun and I loved this gun.

      You’re the exact type of person I hated in BF3, this rifle really shouldn’t even be a true sniper. If I’m correct, it uses a smaller round than most assault rifles.

    The QBU-88 fire a 5.8 x 42. It travels like a 5.56, but kills like a 7.62.

    It is a marksman rifle. Somewhat a sniper, but it is marksman status. I’ll give you that one. The Chinese use the M99.

    QBU-88 is by far one of the best guns in BF3 and BF4 and its its my favorite one to use especially now that all classes can use it to.
