Description Convars Keyvalues Flags Other Weapons


weapon_svd is the entity name for SMOD's take on the Russian Dragunov sniper rifle, which makes use of a model ported from the Half-Life mod Firearms.

Primary Fire: Fires a powerful round capable of dispatching most targets in a single shot.

Secondary Fire: Uses the weapon's scope and cycles through the scope's zoom modes (2x, 4x, 8x).

The Use key will toggle the scope's night vision mode at any time.
