- DICE stated in a blog post that DMRs would not receive long range scopes due to balancing issues despite players wanting them to. The SR338 was added to the game soon after and appears to be DICE's way of giving a DMR long range scopes whilst still keeping it balanced.
- Due to a bug, the SR338 third-person weapon model appears much smaller than normal. A similar issue affects the AR160.
- The bolt animation occasionally fails to play during rapid-fire with the SR338.
