3 shots taken, 2 downed soldiers and 1 downed Machinegun from 8,120ft away.

The horribleness of war aside, that's quite an impressive feat.

Even in perfect conditions and with lucky charm that's insane distance... That kind of skill fills me with deep respect.

Quite impressive... though he still has some way to go to match the kill record and skills of Simo Häyhä

Does this beat that Canadian sniper's world record?
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Actually, yeah... by 45 meters.

Former Counter-Strike players might be interested to hear that this new record was set with a military version of the AWP, the L115A3, chambered for .338 Lapua.

Deagle. Why bother with a primary weapon when you have that?
