    I believe the representative damage for this weapon is very low and this is also the wrong class for it. it uses a specialized rifle round in 9mm and defeats body armor out to 200 meters. its the same as the VSS, just with a folding stock and issued with 20 round mags.
    i say give it a damage bump and have a more realistic option of 10 and 20 round magazines. but then again, this gun and other russian 9mm rifles have pretty much always been represented wrong in this series.

    It is sad to see DICE purposely making this gun very weak to balance it out as a weapon. In reality it is 1 bullet headshot kill and couple of bullets to take out an enemy that is fully armoured. The slow flying heavy subsonic 9mm armour piercing bullet is the skill level required to operate in this game that will make it balanced.

    The gun itself is hard to use due to the heavy bullet drop and most people will not bother learning this gun due to those characteristics.

    DICE to make this gun accurate give it the one bullet headshot kill capability. The VSS pro’s only use it single shot mode for accuracy anyways. Bring back the most powerful and versatile urban sniper rifle back to its glory.

    P.S the bullets kill range is up to 400m 😉

    Here here. I’ve been saying this since BF3. It’s one of my biggest gripes with this otherwise enjoyable game. How did they get this gun so wrong? Smg? It’s a compact sniper rifle that fires a round with more energy than a ump 45 or silenced ak47( or in this game I guess the sks). I’d like to see more people call dice out more often on there serious lack of knowledge of the weapons they put in there own games. You’d think they’d have someone check these things with all the boat loads of money they’re making. Give the players what they want Dice. They keep you in business.

          The AS Val, and VSS Vintorez (small sniper from BFBC2) Uses 9×39 mm Sub-sonic Rounds although 9mm it has more power, range, bullet velocity and penetration . Really good Effective gun until it got the nerf. Same for other existing guns that got nerfed.

        Are you stupid? The 9x39mm is larger than the 7.62x39mm. 9>7.62. Also, you’re probably better off trying to tickle an armored soldier to death than if you were to shoot him with a .45. Besides, do you really think a pistol round could outclass a rifle round? Not only that, but an old and sluggish round like the .45ACP.

          Are you stupid? 9x39mm has a muzzle velocity of 230-320 m/s. A typical .45 acp is 250-350 m/s.
          9x39mm AP round are under 16 grams. standard .45 acp JHP are 15 grams.
          Yes that sounds “old and sluggish” compared to the 9x39mm right? 9x39mm effective lethal range is 300-400 meters while the .45 acp is 350-430.
          You might want to gain a little knowledge before you run your mouth and end up looking like a dipshit.

    I’ll second that. While I still use the gun regularly in the game, I’d like to see it have more power. Realistically, this weapon should take down enemies much faster. Love the game though!
