99SV API Data
99SV is the standard issue semi-automatic sniper rifle of Terran Republic Infiltrators.
This weapon can kill targets in three body shots or two head shots. It comes stock with an attachment that removes the scope sway and it is not recommended to remove it as the other options are less than ideal for a sniper rifle. This attachment has made the 99SV and Semi Auto Sniper Rifles in general more competitive but if you want to save up for a proper bolt action rifle then the
M77-B or TSAR-42 are your best bets.
Strategy and Tips Edit
Using this weapon requires a great change in playstyle in order to make it effective.
You cannot kill in one shot so accurate follow up shots are a must. Can technically kill faster than a bolt action rifle if said rifle did not score a one shot headshot kill.
Double headshots are viable, but are difficult to pull off. Unless you are dealing with a shielded heavy assault, aim for one headshot and a single body shot instead.
Fire 2-5 rounds at a time before repositioning or cloaking. DO NOT OVERREACH THIS LIMIT. You are already exposing yourself for too long after a 5th shot, it is not worth the kill.
Flanking enemies with this weapon is surprisingly devastating- the fast fire rate along with a fast reloading magazine will allow you to kill several adversaries in rapid succession.
Compared to bolt actions, the 99SV has greater potential against multiple targets.
The unscoped equivalent is the KSR-35, which has a slower muzzle velocity in comparison.
The long-range Sniper Optics 7 scope uses standard mil-dot sighting and 7x magnification to allow for mid and long range shots.
The 8x magnification Optical Precision Scope was created for long-distance shots while retaining a respectable field of view for closer targets.
The TR's Advanced Precision Scope 10x is responsible for record-setting long distance kills on Auraxis. It comes equipped with a standard mil-dot reticle.
Private contractors designed the Long Range Optics 12x to meet the needs of the TR's finest snipers; It features standard mil-dot sighting.
The weapon's muzzle flash and noise generation is reduced, and the player no longer appears on the minimap when firing. In exchange, the weapon's damage falls off 20 meters sooner, and bullet velocity is reduced by 15%.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
An advanced on-board computer compensates for the minor movements while aiming down sights, effectively eliminating scope sway for the marksman.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the 99SV. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the 99SV. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the 99SV.
