Changes to Sniper Rifle Hunting

  • Sniper Rifle Hunting has undergone the following changes:
    • Enhanced the visual effect when the rifle is fired.
    • Changed so that when entering sniper mode, you will see the reticule immediately.
    • Changed so that when in sniper mode, the reticule will not move but rather the aiming screen.
    • Removed the increased accuracy when aiming at a yellow area while holding down your mouse in sniper mode. Firing at a yellow area will now be applied as a perfect shot.
    • Mastery level will no longer affect accuracy and decreased recoil. Instead, it will affect the duration of how long you can hold your breath and the drifting of the scope while aiming.
    • Adjusted the areas for shooting hunting monsters to be more precise.
    • Increased the HP of all sniper hunting monsters. (However, sniper rifles will deal the same amount of damage as before.)
    • Added a guide at the bottom of the screen when sniping rifle hunting.
    • Improved so that pressing RMB while crouched and moving with a sniper rifle will switch you to snipe mode.
    • Improved so that pressing RMB while crouched with a sniper rifle will switch you to snipe mode.

    • Fixed the issue where rolling in certain areas with the sniper rifle equipped would apply damage to monsters.


The "Special Attack damage +10%" effect has been added to certain sub-weapons, such as Blackstar, Nouver, and Kutum. Special Attacks are effects that affect Critical Hit Damage, Down Attack, Back Attack, and Air Attack. Please understand that this decision was made to solidify these weapons as the top tier sub-weapons.

We have been aware that the Increased Special Attack Damage effect of normal sub-weapons with an ultimate upgrade and the Extra AP Against Monsters and Increased Critical Hit effects of rented Nesser gear made them extremely powerful. However, as Nesser gear consumes Contribution Points and normal sub-weapons cannot be upgraded with Garmoth's Heart, we believed this difference would separate these weapons from Black Desert's ""best gear"", and left the situation as it was. Even when these weapons could be compared to Blackstar weapons, the best in the game, we did not take steps to improve the situation as we believed the comparisons were merely hasty conclusions. We would like to take this chance to apologize. We will be much more thorough in double checking issues such as these and take preemptive measures to ensure that there are no more similar situations that arise. If, by any chance, such an issue occurs again, we will address it beforehand, take all of your opinions into consideration, and take quick action to mend the situation. Once again, we apologize for the inconveniences we have caused to our Adventurers.

The function of Nesser sub-weapons will stay the same. They are easily accessible as they only require Contribution Points, and will stay available for those who need a quick and temporary switch out for gear.

The overall AP will increase following today's maintenance, and we will be sure to scrutinize and balance the effects of this change

Thank you.
