"The SV-98 (Snaiperskaya Vontovka Model 1998) is a Russian bolt-action sniper rifle designed to engage various targets at range up to 1,000 m. It is mainly used by Russian law enforcement and some counter-terrorist forces."
- — Description.
The SV-98 is a tier 1 customisable sniper rifle.
The SV-98 (Also Known As Snaiperskaya Vintovka Model 1998) is the first sniper rifle to be featured in Contract Wars. The SV-98 has the lowest accuracy of all bolt-action snipers in the game, yet has the highest penetration amongst CR snipers. It also has very high recoil, but being a bolt-action sniper rifle, recoil is irrelevant.
Unlike most snipers, chambering the next bullet blackens the scope for a moment. If you miss a shot, or don't kill with the first bullet, it is advisable that you scope out and rechamber you next shot, otherwise you may risk losing sight of your target.
Version of SV-98 equipped with a silencer. Allows you to fire substantially increasing the detection time of your position.
