It sounds to me like you've worn out the "pad" on that trigger button over time? You can buy them cheaply online and replace them yourself or send your controller back In to have them do a rebuild on it.....I've had the same issue before. I just stopped using the trigger locks....

Anybody having this same issue? Literally none of my snipers will fire. Well maybe after I hold the trigger in for 10 seconds. After researching I found that some guys had the same problem back on bf4. Something to do with the right trigger on my controller being slightly damaged apparently, but I'm not convinced. Bf4 and hardline work fine. None of my friends are having the same issue. I just wanted to put the feelers out. Im going to ask a friend to bring a controller round to test. Wanted to explore all avenues before I bite the bullet and buy a new controller. Any info would be muchly appreciated.

Same problem here as well on Xb1. All semi-auto rifles, sniper rifles, and shotguns will not fire....I thought it was my elite controller at first, then tried to use my other controllers and still the same problem. Hard reset the xbox and still not working...I contacted EA Sports about it and reported this issue as a bug and still no help. I've been told to revert to the forums, where it's all complaints and no fixes...looks like ill be waiting for COD haha

I had this same problem a while back with Battlefield 4, and I did find a fix that was relatively simply and easy.
Like you guys, every gun other than sniper rifles would work, and so would every other game. The only way I could get snipers to shoot was by quickly and aggressively pressing R2, and even then it didn't work most times.
The back of the R2 trigger (and L2) has a knife blade-like protrusion, when you press R2 this moves the protrusion inward toward a silicon cylinder, which when depressed enough will basically tell the controller that you pressed R2.
The problem is that silicon is soft and the R2 button is hard, so after a while (or with aggressive use) this knife blade-like protrusion will cut a groove in the silicon cylinder. Now when you press R2 inward it just fits into the groove and doesn't press R2 until the very end of its movement. The reason this cause problems only with sniper rifles is because the amount of input required for the sniper rifle to fire, is larger than with an assault rifle.
To fix this I simply opened up the controller, found my way to the R2/L2 button and used a toothpick to put some new silicon in the groove, after this it was like having a new controller.
I want to add that I do not have any experience fixing electronics, anyone can do this. I do recommend that you fill L2 also if it has a groove since at this point you've done the difficult part of opening the controller up. I also recommend doing this on a large flat surface as there are several small pieces that you don't want to lose.
Here's some silicon: https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80050-Silicone-Adhesive-Sealant/dp/B0002UEPVI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1500304137&sr=8-4&keywords=rtv+silicone
Here's the article I used to disassemble the controller: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/DualShock+4+Touch+Pad+Replacement/22684 I know it says touchpad but this gets you deep enough into the controller to access the R2/L2 buttons.
I really hope this helps guys! Good luck!
