I removed the part about the larger scope of the SV98 making it easier to hit targets at long range. I agree it aids in spotting them, just not hitting them. Son of a Magnet 12:44, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
I find it ironic that Battlefield prides itself in realism, yet this sniper rifle, which fires a very powerful bullet, only kills in one shot to the head, and takes two for the body.
Probably takes two to the body due to body armor that all soldiers wear, and the fact that they need balance. Either way there's also bullet drop, destructable environments, etc. XboxHat 18:45, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
Oh and what the hell? The ballistic scope is the first unlock isn't it? Why does it say that the ACOG (Russian one) is? I remember that the ballistic scope was the first thing I ever attached to my SV-98 XboxHat 18:45, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
Before I go and make myself look like an idiot for making a false update on the damage stats, can someone please confrim that this (and therefore all bolt action 7.62 sniper rifles) has a new damage of 80-50 and an extra multiplier to the chest of 1.25. XboxHat 16:37, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
