6.Most successful sniper in the history
The most successful sniper in the history of Western Civilization was likely Simo Häyhä, of Finland.
During the Winter War of 1939-1940, when the Russians invaded, Häyhä set himself up in a tree, in below freezing temperatures (-4 *F to -40 *F), armed with only two weapons, (possibly) a M/28-30 rifle and a Suomi KP/-31 submachine gun.
When the Russians realized that this one sniper was picking them off, they set counter-snipers to kill him. Häyhä killed them all.
So the Russians sent artillery strikes and those didn’t work either. After killing an average of five Russians a day for over three months,
Häyhä was finally stopped when a Russian solider (that he shot and killed at the same time) managed to get off a shot with an explosive bullet that struck him in the jaw.
At the end of his career, Hayha had five hundred and five confirmed kills, and is estimated to have killed at least three hundred more soldiers.
Oh, and that explosive bullet didn’t actually kill him. Häyhä survived and later became a successful dog breeder and moose hunter.
