  • Available in Deathmatch, Defuse and Ranked
  • 15 skins available from Standard and Premium Cases

Developer’s Comments:

SVD is a new high-power, semi-automatic sniper rifle. In most aspects it fits right between the M14 and URatio, it has a slightly lower fire rate than the M14, but as a semi-automatic it fires much faster than the URatio. It deals more damage than the M14, but doesn’t match the raw firepower of URatio. At $4200 in Defuse, it’s a bit more expensive than URatio, but still much cheaper than the M14.

However, it is also the slowest weapon in the game to move with (not counting when using the scope), so the cheaper price to M14 does come with a trade-off and you may be in trouble when switching between knife for movement as it doesn’t exactly deploy fast either.

Developer’s Comments

When you receive Experience after a match you are now displayed a more detailed breakdown of what the XP consist of. Each game mode has their own base XP for playing a round that is different for winning and loosing team. There is also a bonus for being a MVP on the winning team. In the future there will also be new types of bonuses to boost XP received and these will be shown.

Experience screen was also made to feel more responsive based on player feedback.
