You can add a scope to your rifle and make it a sniper by using any of the workbenches in the game. Select the rifle from the weapons list. The 6x scope upgrade will allow you to instal a 6x scope on your rifle. This will cost you 80 scrap pieces.
Once you have got the upgrade, you can aim and press X to look through the scope. Press L3 in order to hold your breath for a while and stabilize the crosshair. This will allow you to fire very precise shots.
