There is significant horizontal recoil, making the Compensator a useful attachment.
- The Laser Sight and Tactical Light will quite unusually be placed in a dedicated slot, between the grip and the trigger mount; the Green Laser sight, Tri-beam Laser, and Flash Light will be mounted on the left side of the gun instead. It shares this trait with the PDW-R, which has a similar laser/flashlight slot on the front of the weapon below the barrel.
- Previously, part of the SR-2 would clip through the player's arm when wading through water. This has since been patched.
- Along with the other weapons of the first three expansions for Battlefield 4, the SR-2 actually has an in-game description, but it can only be viewed when the weapon is unlocked at the end of a round or if it is equipped in a gadget slot using external tools.
