"The SR3M Vikhr (Whirlwind) is a Russian compact fully automatic assault rifle favored by secret service and special forces, combining the qualities of SR-3, AS-VAL and VSS Vintorez"


The SR3M is a tier 2 premium assault rifle.


The SR3M is a compact assault rifle with low accuracy, high recoil, high damage, a very fast fire-rate, good mobility, a below-average reload speed, high penetration, low damage fall-off, and a below-average effective distance. The SR3M possesses the standard assault rifle magazine size of 30 rounds and a good amount of reserve ammunition. Despite the high recoil, the SR3M has little visual recoil, meaning the weapon doesn't shake too much when firing.

Overall, the SR3M is best suited for close encounters, due to its high damage-per-second. It is also competent at ranged attacks, but much less so than other assault rifles like the AUG A3 and M4A1 Custom, due to its poor accuracy, recoil, and effective distance. The SR3M's biggest downside is its lengthy reload speed, at least for assault rifle standards. Due to this, the SR3M is ineffective for attacking large groups of opponents, though it can usually handle two opponents with one magazine.

It is highly recommended that a hit-and-run playstyle be extensively employed to take advantage of the SR3M's highest body-shot damage-per-second of all fully-automatic assault rifles. Stay close to teammates at all times to able to reload without being caught off-guard.
