The latest reveals that the game’s next weapon will be a sniper rifle that comes with a scope and suppressor, making you the deadliest assassin out there.

According to PvPLive[https://pvplive.net/c/playerunknowns-battlegrounds-adds-the-vss-vintorez-next-monthly-update], the gun will come equipped with a scope and suppressor. They also say that while it sounds incredibly powerful, at extreme ranges it’s going to be very difficult to hit anything due to bullet drop. You’re also not exactly at an advantage going up a stairwell or bursting into a building.
