Bipod or crouched and 150m+ from target is the only way to even have moderate success with this weapon. There is no situation where it has a TTK advantage over another gun. Basically its to troll bads in public servers.

It's problem is it doesn't do anything better than any of the other options available. You can take the time to land head shots, but would be better served with a bolt action. Alternatively in medium range your better off using a DMR which out damages this gun. It doesn't do anything particularly well at all. Which is a shame really... I was excited as I'm sure others were when Naval Strike and this gun was announced. I'm hoping DICE do something to this weapon to give it a niche to fill, as it stands now I just think to myself "Why am I even using this?" when ever I attempt to do well with it.

The only thing the SR338 has going for it that DMRs don't, is the Sniper Headshot multiplier(if it even has it). It sits in this weird place in limbo between Bolt Action Rifles and Sem-Auto Marksman rifles after the recon schism, were it doesn't seem to do anything better than either of those two weapons and seems to have no place in this world.

Which gives us this question. Why does the SR338 even exist?

The SR338 doesn't get the sniper rifle headshot multiplier: it gets the basic 2x that all other weapons get. I guess it's to give players a reason to use the FY-JS or the Scout Elite, but even then it's not really a great excuse.

I'll occasionally use it for the hell of it, but really, unless DICE gives it a buffing (highly doubt it: when's the last time that they buffed a DLC gun? BF3 CQ?), I don't see myself getting even a single service star with it. (Which really isn't saying much: the only sniper rifle I have a service star with is the L96, and that's because nostalgia goggles :P )

If you can jihad anything that is :P
The one hole in my Support repertoire that is: Can't jihad anything :pinch:

I'm probably better off just being 'That asshole' for a few games and just run around Wavebreaker's centre flag sprinkling C4 on all the poor unfortunate little enemies that inhabit it for 5 4 kills :D

Step 1: Place C4 on the staircase of one of Golmud's many houses (SDM works best)

Step 2: Go upstairs and draw as much attention to your position as possible

Step 3: ???

Step 4: Profit.

Good advice but its gotta be 5 C4 kills on Naval Strike maps, hence why I said bombing floating things is hard. Ask anyone, I have no problems with C4ing land vehicles :D

:pinch: right. Forgot about that detail. Just apply that process to alcoves on either side of the sub bay in Wavebreaker or the octagonal buildings on Nansha. Really, any empty choke point will do.
