Battlefield 3 Straight Pull Bolt - Overview and Function
The Straight Pull Bolt is a primary weapon attachment used for Sniper Rifles which lets you reload without
zooming out. Normally bolt-action rifles cannot be reloaded while zooming in, and you can lose your target in the
mean time while you are reloading. Bolt-action rifles only give you 1 shot to hit the opponent with - each shot
forces you to zoom back out and reload.
As a result with this attachment, you can stay zoomed in to track your target as you load in another bullet,
whereas normally you could easily lose track of your target if they had moved to another spot.
How to Unlock the BF3 Straight Pull Bolt
The Straight Pull Bolt is one of the later attachments you get for your Sniper Rifle and is unlocked via kills.
Just keep using the rifle you like and as you rack up kills you will eventually unlock this.

Battlefield 3 Straight Pull Bolt Strategy
The Straight Pull Bolt is something that allows you to essentially take multiple shots at an enemy without
zooming out. This allows you to track them for long distances as you fire at them.
Personally, I don't really like the idea behind this attachment because the whole point of using a Sniper Rifle
is to go for head shots so you can take out the opponent in one hit. The whole point of using a Bolt-Action Rifle
is so you have more power and accuracy than the semi-automatic versions. What is the point of using a bolt-action
if you are not going to take opponents out in 1 hit?
One argument would be that when you are shooting over a very long range, you do not always get one hit kills.
While this is true, when you are shooting from a very long range, you should be using a bipod anyway.
The best Snipers though do not shoot from too far away anyway though and prefer to go for mid-ranged combat. In
this situation, the Straight Pull Bolt is not all that great either as you do not have time to stay zoomed in for
long periods. You have to be the master of 1-shot kills to make a close-range Sniping class work.
With that in mind, the Straight Pull Bolt does help with practice. Since you get more shots off when using it,
you will get more practice with aiming a Sniper Rifle. For this reason, it will give you more shots (which is more
practice) and may speed up the learning time involved in getting used to a new Sniper Rifle.
Additionally, one situation where the Straight Pull Bolt may shine is if you are fighting in mid-ranged combat
and there are multiple enemies in the same spot - you can move from one to the next without having to zoom out.
However, the downside here is that moving your aim is pretty slow when zoomed in. If the players are any distance
apart, you are best off zooming out and re-aiming once you get into the right area.
If you have ever seen screen-recordings of the best snipers, they are constantly zooming in, getting a 1-shot
kill, then zooming out and immediately zooming back in again. They only zoom in for a brief second for the accuracy
boost, and spend most of their time not zoomed in so they can see what is going on around them.
Battlefield 3 Straight Pull Bolt Strategy
While the Straight Pull Bolt does not strike me as being an incredibly useful weapon attachment, it can be good
for learning or taking out multiple enemies clustered in the same area. However, if you ever want to be a top-tier
sniper, you are going to have to get used to taking down players in 1 hit. If you cannot get regular head shot with
your Sniper Rifle, you have will have a lot of trouble with the Recon class no matter what your attachments
