The SVD (Snaiperskaja Vintovka Dragunova, or Dragunov Sniper Rifle), Commonly referred to as Dragunov, is a Soviet made semi-automatic sniper rifle that appears in Resident Evil 5. It can be found in chapter 2-2 in a locker inside the building you're standing in right after the Irving cutscene. It has a starting firepower of 650, reload speed of 2.83, and a capacity of 7. Fully upgraded, it has a firepower of 1300, reload speed of 2.41, and a capacity of 18. It fits roughly in the middle of the RE5 Sniper Rifle range, having a semi-automatic firing mode making it faster than the Sako S75 but not as powerful, and with a lower magnification scope than the PSG-1. It is also quite unstable compared to other two rifles, making it difficult to place shots at longer ranges. However, the AI player can handle this weapon pretty well, so you can equip PSG-1 and have the AI partner equip the SVD if you cannot handle the latter.
