      yes you’re right…
      and how the bullet drops in diffrent ranges is too wrong..

        Yeah, I ranged a target and it said 500m. so I set it for 500 m and shot him and it went above him!

          yeah i think its 500m excluding the guns normal range. so for instance if bullet drop would normally start at 100m, that range thing of 500m would make it start at 600m. just speculation ofcourse. not entirely sure

    This was my favourite sniper rifle on battlefield 3… The looks are good but the preformance is horrible, I find the sniper game play is unrealistic, from playing BF4 Beta… If this is what Battlefield 4 is going to be like I’m going to be very disappointed…

    I love playing rush with the m40a5 on the china rising maps. Put a 3.4x scope on it with the strait pull and you got yourself a good weapon to defend or attack objectives with.

    I want Realistic, pro is good, but when it comes to bullet drop only some people can remember the drop distance, and even fewer can estimate, I was doing great in the beta with every class apart from the Sniper. The only good sniper is the SV98 because of its fast fire rate.

    I’m pretty adaptable when it comes to rifles irl and in video games, but I must draw the line with the SV-98. It sucks. Nuff Said.

      For long range go with the Srr61. For short to medium go with the Gol Magnum or the M4OA5.
