|— Weapon Description|
The SV98 is a Sniper weapon released alongside ijji AVA's official game launch.
SV98 is no longer available in shop,due the upgraded version: SV98 BIS is released.
An expendable SV98 is given to the player upon completion of the tutorial. It is popular due to its high damage as well as its relatively high rate of fire (compared to that of the TPG-1). Although some users complain that its one-hit kills are much rarer than with that of the TPG-1, it is nevertheless a versatile weapon that is quick to draw out, aim, and fire.
It can be modified to have an even higher chance of killing in one hit, adding an extra +5 damage to make the overall damage 95. If one aims at the chest or higher of an enemy, it is more likely to become a one-hit kill. Nevertheless, the SV98 has an extremely tough time penetrating Armor, and makes it more unlikely in scoring a one-hit kill.
Being of Ducky Rank, it is one of the few rentable weapons in ijji AvA, and is arguably the most recommended of all rentable sniper rifles.
This gun is best used when quick-switching, as it has an extremely short drawspeed. The SV98's draw speed, about 80 milliseconds a shot, surpasses the speed of the DSR-1 and FR-F2 and almost becomes on par with the speed of the Mosin Nagant, granting it the nickname "King of Quickswitching."
7.62 x 54 R Barrel (+5 Damage, -7.9 Stability)
Accuracy Trigger (+2.4 Accuracy)
Swing Grip (+0.47 Quick-switch)
Shock absorber (+4.4 Accuracy)
- The SV-98's stock is wooden, the green color most likely coming from orthodox priests at Izhmash rubbing it with holy leaves from The Berezka and then coating it with Putin's personal hairspray.
