I just started playing, and with the starting Gearbox sniper rifle, I shot some people while scoped, but it seemed like those kills registered for the no-scope Sniper Kills Challenge.

I kept sniping enemies, while trying things like releasing the scope right after I fired, to see if that would do it, but no.

Is it actually possible to get "no-scope" kills, while actually scoped?

No It's not, that is why it's called no scope. You have got to shoot without aiming, but it's way easier to take down large enemies with no scope than small or/and fast enemies, so it might be a glitch or something.

  • Yeah, I think I did some no-scope kills, then scoped and did some kills, plus notification lag, and everything got mixed up.

  • But you know there could still be a way, Google it if you want. It's useful if you can really no-scope with a scope. Commented May 14, 2020 at 13:47
  • late but question out of interest. Does that apply to the uniquwe Jakobs Sniper Rife "Buffalo"? This one cannot spawn with a scope
