    As of 10/08/2018 this achievement does not track properly - however it is still possible to obtain.

    The only assault rifles that appear to track kills towards this achievement are the M16A4 and the M416. The distance (100 meters away) is not required, feel free to kill enemies from any range; what you MUST do - to progress this achievement - is make sure you are aiming down the IRON SIGHT. I have tried aiming with a red dot sight on numerous occasions and not once has it tracked the kill. 6x scopes appear to work on occasion but they are not consistent. At this time the only sure fire way to progress this achievement is using the weapons iron sights.

    I have not been able to test every sniper rifle but can confirm that the VSS, Winchester, Mini 14, and M24 do not count towards this achievement, even from a distance greater than 100 meters.

    One final note, kills against AFK players in the water do not count towards this achievement.

    (VictimOfDesire noted that the achievement progressed using the 4x scope. In my experience all scopes have been inconsistent and as mentioned above the red dot has never progressed. However it may be worth a try, scopes may work for you. It seems to be a case by case basis.)

    VictimOfDesireI was two kills away from this achievement yesterday and got it after getting two M416 kills with the 4x.

    RyboD96I have been stuck at 90% on marksman novice for a week. Tried your method and still no progress. Have tried m4, m16, iron sights, scopes, over 100m, less than 100m, headshots, body shots, other ARs, sniper rifles, etc. Nothing seems to work. Don't know what I did to get to 90% but it seems stuck now.

    Have you found anything else that progresses the achievement?

    RyboD96Just got 2 to count using the m16 iron sights. Over the shoulder to down, iron sights to kill. Still seems inconsistent.
