SSG 08 underrated or overrated rifle?

A detailed description of SSG 08

An Austrian-made slide-action sniper rifle is a budget alternative to the more powerful and expensive AWP sniper rifle. With its help, you can calmly and instantly eliminate the target with the first head bullet, regardless of whether there is armor or not. You can also eliminate the target with the first bullet when there is no armor gel when the target is shot in the stomach, and only with two bullets when shot in the stomach with the presence of a bulletproof vest in the target. A professional player with this rifle will completely dominate the enemy, no matter the enemy's strategy. 

 

Our player can calmly suppress enemy targets with SSG 08 at long distances and compete with other snipers, trying to stick out the head and defeat the target. A fairly effective weapon when a pistol round is lost, with its help, you can try to damage opponents for their further destruction or try to kill one shot to the head.

SSG 08 underrated or overrated rifle?

 

Pros

A light weapon — you can run calmly with it and maintain moments of maneuverability, and a rather significant difference is that you can move quickly even in aiming mode, while with AWP, you move very slowly. Budget weapon — costs only $1,700, as a sniper rifle is very cheap and profitable for trying to win a round. High accuracy — this aspect is very important for a sniper and is an important plus for playing with her. An interesting fact is that if you scope and jump and shoot at the moment of the jump, the bullet will fly exactly to the target.

 

Cons

The damage this rifle inflicts on the body is quite small for a sniper, and at some points, problems may arise.

First, you can buy this sniper when you have little money, but you want to try to win a round, and you are confident in your game.

Also, if the economy allows carrying a reliable gun, with which you can defeat a target when it is low on HP. Quite reliable pistols are P250, Tec-9, USP-S, and Five-Seven. There is no need to compete with a group of enemies (more than two people), there are more of them, and they are better equipped; a careless step, and you make the first kill too easily. It is necessary to try to kill or inflict damage and move away, change position, distract the enemy's attention, etc.

 

Use grenades

Use grenades for an advantage over the opponents, competent flash drives and smoke screens will give the necessary result and bring you closer to winning the round. In general, some teams practice rounds after a lost pistol, buy everyone SSG 08, and surprise the enemy to act more carefully and make mistakes with which you can take a force round.

 

Comparison of SSG 08 and AWP

SSG 08 underrated or overrated rifle?

The number of bullets in the store is 10. This rifle is more accurate at the time of aiming and can hit a target in a jump with 100% accuracy and $3,050 cheaper, which is a pretty hefty sum when you're short on AWP. The rate of fire is higher than in AWP (41 in AWP and 48 in SSG 08). The recharge time is also the same, according to calculations (3.7 seconds). But there is only one minus that significantly differentiates SSG 08 and AWP.

 

To date, one of the few beautiful moments from SSG 08 was performed by Oleksandr "s1mpe" Kostylev, when on one of the StarLader's on the Nuke map against the Mousesports team, he made two passes (one on the street, the other in the main), thereby showing something new and unreal while playing with this weapon. 

 

So, what can be summed up — the SSG 08 is an underrated weapon with which you can hit targets. Each player can take this sniper and try to damage the enemy, not even killing, but just shooting in the stomach so that the enemies are low hp.
