The SVD Camo is a sniper rifle that features ghillie camouflage and goes well with the Ghillie Suit in Chernarus' open field areas. It uses 7.62x54mm ammo and doesn't share its ammunition with any other weapon.
The ghillie camouflage can come in handy when you need to camouflage yourself from your target, especially if they have a superior field of vision, such as when hunting you down from a helicopter. However, both the suit and the rifle make no difference when sneaking around zombies.
Another attractive feature of the gun is the intuitive scope. Featuring a single zoom level with integrated rangefinder, however not zero-able, the weapon can be great for both starter and veteran snipers. However, the only level of zoom may not be enough to engage targets that are very far away.
Testing on the firing range has shown the arrows are zeroed at the following ranges, with the arrow covering the target:
- Center: 225m
- -1 Arrow: 300m
- -2 Arrow: 500m
- -3 Arrow: 700m
- -4 Arrow: 925m
- Tip of the vertical line: 1000m
The large arrow above the horizontal line is for ranges 100m or less.
The rangefinder marks the height of a 1.8m tall person standing, while the 0.5 curve is calibrated for the height of a crouching person. Keep in mind that targets' legs appear to sink into the grass from far away, and be sure to compensate for this when using the rangefinder.
