let the lonewolf 1337 5n1p312 take the sniper kit. so the real snipers can take the marksman and help their squad in medium - long range.

ps - its not overpowered if everybody gets them.

The M14 and Chinese DMR's have always felt terribly inaccurate to me. The SVD and M4 and quite nice though, I don't really see the overpowered bit though they're doing what they're meant to.

From my point of view, anything that can one-shot-kill people so easily with little to no recoil in a game where your average assault rifle takes as much as 3 hits to kill and with lots of recoil, is overpowered.

LMGs' used to be overpowered, they're fine now. So why can't DMR's?

NERF! NURF!!

I don't see most of the marksman rifles as being overpowered. But the one-hit kills from the Dragonuv are pretty ridiculous. I can't even manage one hit kills with most sniper rifles, unless my target gets stupid enough to leave their head exposed.

Marksman rifles are supposed to have some decent stopping power though.

I've been getting more and more 1-shot kills with the SVD, even on distances of over 300/400 meters. The accuracy at those distances is a bit tricky, but a shot that lands is lethal.

Also noticed that I can hit moving targets (sideways) without leading them. Just fire when the target is in the middle of your scope and he drops. This happens a lot in Fallujah, when I'm doing recon (as MM) in one of the buildings near Palace. BLUFOR running on the roads into town, or running by on crossings 300 meters away drop if I want them to.

Using the SVD up close however (10-30 meters) is even more fun. *evil*

Its a F***in DMR man, it fires high power rifle rounds that are meant to take down anything they hit. Not OP to me.

In Game: Marxman

I think when looking at the SVD you must also look at all the other DMRs.

There are three categories

No1
M4A1 DMR - IDF&Hamas
Tavor DMR - IDF
L86A2 DMR - British

These three are a mix of LMG with a low magazine capacity and Sniper rifles with a weak bullet.

No2
MSG-1 (basically G3 DMR) - Germans, MEC, Taliban

The same as No1, with less magazine capacity but a more powerful bullet.

No3
M14 - USA&USMC
Type89? - China
SVD - Russia, Militia, Insurgents, Hamas

Same as No2, without automatic fire, and with smaller magazines(not M14 iirc) and a stronger Bullet(again not M14 iirc)


To me that all seems a pretty good balance. Each are a tradeoff and consequently not brilliant in every environment. If you feel that the SVD stands out, I think it might be because you tried using every rifle in the same way.

No 1&2 categories can be used BOTH as a LMG and a marksman rifle. No 3 is a superior marksman rifle at longer ranges though.

I don't think you can single out the SVD as beeing overpowered. If anything it would be ALL DMRs.

My 2 cents anyway.

I kind of like ironsights SVD. Feels like SVT 40 or something.

(Edit: Does this mean the PKM has the same kill-power?)
It seems that you are thinking like guys from Dice,
Weapons like Dragunov kill with one shot.
It is not overpowered,it is realistic,only thing that is bad on Dragunov is his range,
creators says that is god up to 700 meters,but in reality you should be lucky if shoot someone
on 300 meters range.
Dragunov THE BEST !!!!!!
