Buff RSC and Model 8 bullet velocity

They should be more on par with SARs. They sit fairly low, maybe a 60 m/s or so buff?

    I think they could use little longer 2 shot kill ranges.

    Nah, 50m is fine. They shoot fast enough for 3. They just need a better velocity, and the added consistency will make them feel stronger at range without changing lethality.

    Yeah they do not need to be more lethal but they need some quality of life improvements like better velocity or capacity/reload speed, ADS time, no x3 glint, at least not until 100m up to which it is equal to the SARs BTK in 50-100m

    Why do I have to shoot 2 times in the head with Model 8 ?

    SLRs are not OHK from full health at any range with a headshot.

    Model 8 is an absolute animal for an aggressive sniper!

    The SLRs are ok (especially the ZH-29 is a beast), but having scope-glint on 3x-scopes for these guns seems like a punishment for recons. Their TTK is not much different than the SARs (which have no glint).

    Without the glint these guns would be much more viable for PTFOing and would probably be used by more players.

    ZH29 and Selb are not part of this(flat 2 btk, and nice velocity, can spec into 800s).
    Also, glint is on 3x and 6x. You don't PTFO with those very often.
    The RSC and Model 8 have a low enough velocity to make a e bullets past 50m near impossible to land on a moving target.
    It can be done, but will rarely end with the kill.

    Actually tried irons, quick aim, custom stock, lughtened stock, and bayo on the lee enfield. Great for aggressive play. Except the bayonet is... janky.

    How does it compare to the K31 on the same role?

    Better, due to faster rof and larger mag

    These are some suggestions I came up with about a year ago based having researched the guns. I can’t remember what their rl muzzle velocities are but if they’re slower in-game than irl they should be buffed but I also think that the following changes would help allow recons to push and ptfo with their squads. They should also be given the option to equip Selb 1906 style glintless x2 scopes (or just make all x3 scopes in the game have the same amount of glint (none or slight) but don’t tell anyone I said that because I don’t want to get lynched)

    Model 8

    The slings and swivels specialisation should be replaced with a 10 round extended mags specialisation (FYI a 15 round mag version was available but again let’s compromise). This would allow RLLL to make the model 8 better suited to closer ranges and more aggressive play whilst players could alternatively opt for LRRR to specialise it for less aggressive play

    The Selb1916 would have 16 more rounds per mag than an RLLL speced model 8 and whilst the model 8 would have a faster TTK up to 50m, past 50m the fact that the model 8 drops off to a 3HK means that the Selb1916 would kill faster.
    Compared to the G43, the G43 would still just be better as it’d kill faster past 50m and can have detachable magazines and high velocity bullets which the model 8 cant have. However, the gap in their stats would become smaller.


    RSC

    The RSC is the odd one out as it didn’t have any alternative mag sizes. However seeing as the RSC is just worse than the G43, Karabin, Selb1916 and Garand at everything, and with the above perks would clearly become the weakest of the three if nothing was done, I think that everything considered, it should be made a 2HK at all ranges or up to 100m or 150m. This way the trade off between it and the ZH would be that whilst the ZH could be specialised for aggressive play or used as the most accurate SLR, the RSC would be a sniper rifle with a slightly higher RoF

    It would still have a slower TTK than the G43 at all ranges and have a smaller magazine but it’d be better than it currently is.
    Compared to the Selb1916, it’d have a slightly faster TTK up to 100/150m but have a mag that’s a quarter of the selb’s mag’s size
