The SR-84 (Browning A-Bolt Sniper Rifle 1984) is a Light class bolt-action sniper rifle designed to deal very high damage per shot and extreme headshot damage from a long distance.

Usage

The SR-84 can be selected as the weapon of any Light build loadout.

It has a special type of sights, offering a scope. Enabling the scope will zoom in the screen and overlay it with a duplex reticle, and will slow down movement and sensitivity.

The trigger can be pulled to fire one bullet that damages an opponent, also dealing additional damage on headshots. The trigger must be released before firing again. Moving decreases accuracy, especially when going airborne. Firing while scoped in grants the SR-84 near-perfect accuracy, even while moving.

The weapon automatically reloads when its magazine is empty, or the user can do a tactical reload before this point. The user has unlimited spare ammunition..

Properties

Weapon

FeatIcon Ranged.png Ranged — Strikes targets by aiming and firing at them from a distance.

FeatIcon Single Fire.png Single Fire — Fires once when the trigger is pulled. The trigger must be released before firing again.

FeatIcon Scope.png Scope — Has the ability to scope in. This grants near-perfect accuracy, but produces a glint that reveals the user's location.

FeatIcon Full Reload.png Full Reload — Replaces the entire magazine in one animation on reload.

FeatIcon Stable Accuracy.png Unstable Accuracy — Suffers a significant decrease in accuracy while moving and while airborne.

Bullet

FeatIcon Hitscan.png Hitscan — Travels in a straight line, meaning there is no bullet drop. The direction will deviate from the crosshairs depending on accuracy.

FeatIcon Critical Hit.png Critical Hit — Critically hits on headshots, applying a damage multiplier.

FeatIcon High Range Falloff.png High Range Falloff — Deals reduced damage when hitting targets at long distances (falloff starts beyond 30m). For the SR-84, this distance is extremely far, with the falloff starting beyond 80 meters.

FeatIcon Sound Cue.png Sound Cue — Can be heard firing from across the arena. Bullets that fly near a target produce a distinct whiSR-84ing noise.

FeatIcon Minor Structure Damage.png Minor Structure Damage — Damages structures. Takes a very long time to break a concrete wall.

Strategy

Strengths

  • The SR-84 is able to reliably hit targets from extremely long distances thanks to the lack of bullet dispersion when scoped in. Additionally, bullet drop does not need to be accounted for, as with other hitscan weapons.
  • The SR-84 has a very strong headshot multiplier, dealing double the damage of a body shot.
    • A Light contestant can be eliminated with a single headshot.
    • A Medium contestant can be eliminated with a headshot and a body shot.
    • A Heavy contestant can be eliminated with 2 headshots.

Weaknesses

  • The SR-84 is weak at close distances, due to its very high bullet dispersion when hipfiring, and difficulty scoping in on a close target.
  • The SR-84 loses some of its damage at the absolute longest distances, meaning that hitting a target from across the arena is slightly less effective.
  • The SR-84 does not have enough damage output to effectively break shields. Doing so also wastes a large part of the ammunition.

Tactics

  • An SR-84 user should continuously move to the position that best enables them to snipe the relevant opponents for the current objective. This position changes continuously, such as when opponents move through buildings or when the sniper's position is compromised. The best position is often high up, where opponents are too far away to effectively retaliate.
    • The Grappling Hook can provide opportunities to quickly move from one position to the next, especially in open arenas such as Monaco.
    • The Breach Charge enables the sniper to create new positional opportunities around an objective, such as by destroying a ceiling to create a hole through which the cashout station can be defended.
    • Some form of cover is often very helpful for when opponents retaliate. A sniper can create their own cover using a Goo Grenade, allowing them to easily hide behind the wall and move out when the coast is clear.
  • An alternate playstyle where the sniper is playing at moderate to close distances, often with a lot of quick-scoping, is also possible. In this case, the Evasive Dash is usually the preferred specialization.

Mechanics

Hitscan

When the weapon fires a shot, a target is scanned for using a hitscan. This is a detection mechanism that scans in a straight line, meaning there is no bullet drop. The direction of this line will be deviate randomly from the direction of the crosshairs, depending on the accuracy level at the time of firing.

Immediately, the closest contestant, structure, object or shield intersecting the hitscan will be tagged as being struck. First, a bullet tracer animation quickly travels from the weapon to the hit location, then its effects are applied. This means it is possible for targets to be struck a few frames after they appear to take cover, as the hit is confirmed the moment the weapon is fired.

Item Mastery

Item mastery XP can be earned by damaging and eliminating opponents with the SR-84.

Each time a certain XP threshold is reached, the item levels up. This does not improve the item, but rewards a unique item customization.
