      Yea, I hope they’ll include it in BF4. The swedish army uses the L96 (called Psg90 here), and I want to be able to make my classes as “swedish” as possible. I’m so happy that the AK5C in in the game as an all class weapon

        Sweden ordered it with modifications to suit the climate better. The result was the AWM. Fun fact.

          Fun fact: The gun was already suited to arctic climate conditions (the bolt handle is so big because they needed to be used with winter gloves, for instance) but those Swedes wanted them to be better. Thankfully, England sure knows how to make their amazing guns even better! Thank you Accuracy International! (the guys who made the l96…)

    i looked at all sniper rifle stats and this is the best in my opinion. has really high bullet velocity with normal damage (not counting the m82) so this now is going to be used as m98b in bf3. every sniper will use it. but there always will be something that is a bit better than anything else so i guess it was just a question which one it will be.and looks like in bf4 it will be l96.

    I just hate when I hit someone center mass with a sniper that shoots .338 or 7.62×54 and him just merrily skipping away to cover like nothing happened. Dice needs to improve the one-hit power of snipers.

      I agree, whoever was in charge of the stats has them quite twisted. the .408 and .338 rounds are very potent, even against light armor and vehicles such as the buggies they make quite an impact. they have ALL of the muzzle velocities messed up on most everything.

      Uh the 7.62×54 is the mosin nagant and it’s actually 7.62x54r. I’m assuming you meant the 7.62 NATO round (.308/7.62×51)

        I did mean 7.62×51. Thanks for catching that.

    .408 CT and .338 lapua need to be buffed, dice need to either put a bleedout system into the game or make players need to stay prone if they get hit by one till they get healed.
