Battlefield 2042’s Portal brings content from previous Battlefield games to 2042 and with Season 2 now live, DICE have brought over a fan-favorite sniper from Bad Company 2.

After Season 1’s long delay, Battlefield 2042 Season 2 is finally here. The update brought new weapons, the Charlie Crawford Specialist, and the brand-new Stranded map. The AEK-971 also hit Battlefield Portal, but the devs didn’t stop there.

Releasing a small hotfix on September 5, DICE added another fan-favorite Bad Company 2 weapon to Battlefield Portal — the M95 Sniper. Here’s everything you need to know about the weapon, and how to unlock it.

The M95 Sniper Rifle was a favorite of those who loved long-range sniping back in Battlefield Bad Company 2. The last sniper players would unlock, the .50 Cal M95 Barret had the greatest one-shot kill range and excellent bullet penetration.

The M95 now joins other Bad Company 2 weapons in Portal such as the M416, GOL Sniper Magnum, and XM8 Prototype.

While the weapon is only available in Portal as of September 5, DICE have started moving classic weapons such as the M16A3 and M60 over to All Out Warfare, so there’s every chance you’ll be able to use the M95 in normal modes eventually.

Unlock M95 Sniper in Battlefield 2042 Portal

Complete both of these challenges to unlock the M95 in Battlefield 2042 Portal:

  • Headshot Kills (50)
  • Earn Intel Ribbons (50)

Unlocking the M95 Barret Sniper Rifle isn’t too difficult in Battlefield 2042, as you just need 50 Headshot kills and 50 Intel Ribbons. Run any sniper and you should get the 50 headshot kills after playing for a while, and make sure to ping as many enemies as possible to earn Intel Ribbons.
