@danryckert I used sniper rifles almost exclusively as my second primary weapon once they unlocked. Even when unsuppressed, they do not necessarily give away your position. The key is being patient, choosing the correct targets, and only firing once from a given position and then relocating.If you shoot twice from the same position you will almost certainly be discovered or, at the very least, become targeted by mortars.

If you fire only once, enemies will hear the shot, radio CP about sniper fire from an unknown position, and go into an alert state. They may even run toward the direction of the shot. However, this is actually super useful: consider how you can use Quiet as a distraction; you are basically doing the same thing, but providing the distraction yourself.

With an unsuppressed rifle you probably won't be able to take out a whole base camp full of dudes undiscovered unless you are very, very good (you can definitely do it with silenced rifles, though), but it can be useful to thin enemy numbers or, as I said, mislead the enemy about your location.
