Meet the deadliest sniper
Who is the deadliest sniper? Simo Häyhä is the deadliest sniper in history, having claimed over 500 confirmed victims in less than 100 days. He used no scope on his rifle and once held off over 4,000 Soviets with only 31 other Finns.
Häyhä killed between 500 and 542 Russian soldiers with his old rifle during the Winter War, which lasted about 100 days.

While his comrades were utilizing state-of-the-art telescopic lenses to zoom in on their targets, Häyhä was fighting with an iron sight, which he felt provided him a more exact target.
