SRR-61. Though I am planning on trying out the .338 as it has less bullet deviation while on the move and I like to be up close on flags while sniping.
x6 with x14
flash hider
straight pull

Secondary.
Compact .45 with silencer. I need to unlock laser sight and mini on it still.

SRR-61
8x
Laser of choice
Flash Hider/Muzzle Brake (still have to choose which one I prefer^^)
Straight Pull Bolt

Semi auto pistol of choice (non revolver)

works at ranges from 0-400m without a problem, a "quickscope"(yes, you hate the word, but it describes the action best) and pistol switch beats ARs at close range if you catch them unguarded, either OHKO or 1 more pistol bullet. I'm "mastering" the Intervention atm, and this works great, on CQ and DOM

To be fair, I got quite a few kills off the bad sniper on the enemys team^^ such an easy target xD

Why the hell would you have a laser that just gives you away

I feel like no one here uses the Recon-338 or my beloved SV-98.. WHY YOU NO LIKE THE CHALLENGE?! Nah, but to clarify random things while I sit in a server on my hill~

Lazer - If you're up and personal it helps you line up shots extremely quickly as opposed to just learning where you're aimed at when not ADS.
Muzzle Break - Just use it until you have flash hider because if you're a rapid shooter, it DOES help. Granted it usually only has effects on automatics / burst it does have minimal effects on a sniper rifle but only if you're trying to use it like a DMR.
The SRR is a great gun but only for sitting down and picking off targets passed 500m imo, anything else I think def use Recon or M98B due to it's 'true shot' and minimal bullet drop until longer ranges.

Rifles and benefits:
CS-LR4: Good to learn on, swap to M40A5 once you understand what you're doing with snipers.

M40A5: Great bolt reload time but relatively slow bullet velocity compared to others.

Scout Elite: Godly Hipfire, use when going close and personal, slap on lower powered scopes and really learn to focus on headshots if you don't already.

SV-98 Great bolt reload time and easy to get used to once you understand the 7x scope.

JNG-90: Pretty quick fire, once you get used to it, it has amazing take down power and decent with range.

338-RECON: Practically no recoil so close engages are nice to not have a scope hopping around the screen if you panic and decent hip fire, but less than the scout elite.

M98B: 'True Fire' is really OP with this rifle due to the fact you don't usually have to either Zero in or adjust for bullet drop until your target passes over 300m or more most of the time.

SRR-61: Amazing Range, Bullet Velocity is fantastic.

FY-JS: Great bullet velocity and accuracy and great for getting used to the headshots again if you're getting to body shot happy.

L96A1: Creepishly easy to get used to and fantastic for medium to close range encounters due to the scope in rate.

oh yeah xD rangefinder is also fun, zeroing is not necessary, 1 mildot per 500m on the 8x on the SRR-61 works well as a measurement

Just looking at some old topics to find out about suppressors, I just unlocked one for the M40 and it doesn't seem to help my accuracy much past 100m. Could just be because I'm a noob but I don't see much mention about them from the "pro's". Any tips? Obviously there's more bullet drop but are they worth persisting with?
