As title say, its a joke, the weapon is trash! Its almost as bad as Lee Enfield... Why would anyone play this over Gewehr m95/30 or Krag Jorgensen!???

For long range its trash, the bullet velocity is low as ****, why use it over the Krag-Jorgensen??? For close range Gewehr m95/30 is a better choice...

So why is this joke of a rifle beeing made so bad in BFV!??? In BF1 it was great, now you guys nerfed it into the ground...

I waited long time for you guys to introduce this to the game, the stats of the weapon and mechanics like (straight bolt) would decide if I would keep playing BFV or not! But now after all this time waiting you give me THIS...

It sucks!

    It's fast rate of fire says to me that it's the "aggressive recon" weapon people have been asking for.

    But ye I agree it's utter crap.

    I agree that the Ross Mk. 3 is quite an underwhelming rifle...

    I mean it is an aggressive rifle however there is simply no reason at all to chose it over the the other aggressive ones. I rather stick either with the Lee Enfield or the M.95 if I wish to play a rifle repeating quickly. The Ross Mk. 3 is simply a rifle in between those two I mentioned however since it is exactly that it is not worth taking it.

    The M.95 for example can reload whole clips even with a 6x scope attached and has the highest damage-model for a bolt-action rifle in this game. The Lee Enfield whereas can hold 10 bullets in its magazine while having an even faster rate of fire when upgraded. If I look at the Ross Mk. 3 then it just looks like a rather bad compromise. The Mk. 3 can only hold 5 bullets which have to be reloaded individually if a scope is attached. The rate of fire is slightly higher than an upgraded M.95 but at the same time lower than the Lee Enfield. If we take a look at the damage-model it seems to be pretty much identical to the one of the Lee Enfield. However it seems to have a slightly higher bullet-velocity which is probably comparable to the M.95.

    To sum up my observations I would rather go either for the Lee Enfield or the M.95 since I would rather like to have a superior magazine capacity combined with the highest rate of fire or on the other hand going with the M.95 which does more damage and reloads faster. The Ross Mk. 3 is simply a rifle that is best at nothing among those aggressive bolt-action rifles.

    You must really lack attention if you honestly need to come to a forum crying about a gun in a game you have a choice to either play or not play with.😂😂
    I’m here to express my disappointment! The rifle suck, its the truth, and sniper class really needed something good because they are underpowered!

    Wtf do you mean ”play or not play”!???

    I mean with that STUPID logic we can make 6 of 9 weapons for every class useless and then when people complain, a total fanboi can come there and say ”hey just play the other 3 rifles”... Stop ******* trolling, go away already!

    Mate. Your thread is literally a bunch of explanation points and question marks.

    You seem to believe that everyone is trolling, yet your threads are always filled with hysterics. I wasn’t trolling; I was simply replying with the same “expression.”

    Edit: it doesn’t matter. Pick another weapon.

    Bullet velocity and range are better than Enfield, and Gewehr. I really like the weapon. Don't let the ingame stats fool you. There is much more to the weapon than stats say, and many on here are claiming.

    Oh yea, the 6x scope is very nice. Much better than the other 2.

    I'll agree, it was better in bf1

    Trash? Nope

    Are we able to get hold of any stats barring DICE'S doodles?

    In BF1 it was great, now you guys nerfed it into the ground...

    All Bolt Action rifles in a nutshell when it comes to BF 5 to be honest.

    No, YOU in particular and at least 3 other accounts on this forum that 9/10 times cross post with you in almost every single thread is what I call trolling, even organized trolling!

    But yeah, giving a reply like ”just use another weapon” I consider a troll post too!

    I dont care about your opinion on this matter, is it that hard to get? When you not even understand the core of the problem here, then why post at all!???

    IT DOES MATTER! Recon/scout needs something good and that is now! And Ross rifle mk3 was a huge disappointment...

    The ingame stat card does a poor job of informing players about weapon performance, it's very bare bones. I unlocked the Ross yesterday and I gotta say I like it a whole lot. it doesn't have the raw damage stats of the M.95 but it feels like it's fires at a higher velocity and it has a higher rate of fire and most important for a bolt action in BFV, it is much more aesthetic than the M.95.

    It would have made the gun unique if they'd kept the straight pull. Other than that I'm quite enjoy using it so far.

    Havent unlocked it yet, but afaik, the straight pull is still there, if you use the irons. And there you go. That is what this rifle is for. Use irons and be aggressive with the fast rate of fire you have. There is no point in using it any other way, when you have better options for every other scenario.

    It's specialisations is what makes this gun good.
    Quick Aim + Slings and Swivels + Machined bolt + Bayonet = Close range capabilities

    The mp40 should be superior to the sten but you don't see people whining about it. Should each new gun be better then what's already provided?

    It has a higher rate of fire, has a velocity of 600 m/s and a straight pull bolt when using iron sights, although I do not know how the other BAs handle that.
