SR M1903 Exclusive Upgrade

Using the SR M1903

1) SR M1903 Without Scope

M1903 Rifle Without Scope

When aimed, the M1903 gives you a first-person view and the distance is not that far, allowing you to aim from close to medium distances.

This makes the weapon viable for mid-range fights and is a good way to pick off enemies that are getting too close to you or tougher ones that need to be taken out as soon as possible.

2) SR M1903 With Scope

Equipping a Scope Attachment on the M1903 will allow you to zoom in to shoot enemies from a greater distance than you can without a Scope.

You can zoom in once with the M1903 but this is more than enough during the earlier parts of the game as you won’t be facing enemies from too far away.

SR M1903 Vs Stingray

When comparing the seemingly basic Rifle vs the Sniper Rifle, you may favor the Stingray for its high rate of fire over the M1903.

This may be a benefit to most players but those who have gotten used to the Rifle itself will be able to adjust with highly accurate shots that deal increased damage to weak spots.

The M1903 is capable of being upgraded to have an incredibly high amount of damage when upgraded to its full potential, dealing more damage than the Stingray per shot.

VerdictTesting out M1903 Rifle in Resident Evil 4 Remake

While the M1903 may need some getting used to, it does work as a great way to pick enemies off from a distance, especially when you have the Scope Attachment.

This weapon is also good for dealing large amounts of damage to bosses when you get the chance to pull it out and take a few shots at them.

While the SR M1903 may not seem to be the strongest rifle there is during the earlier parts of the game, it certainly can kill enemies easily once it has been upgraded.
