Because the Muzzle Velocity is 785 meters per second and the caliber stat is 1 for the ammo used by the VSD(762x54 Rounds), this weapon has a Penetration Power of 785 out of 977.5(higher is better).
The VSD can be heard up to 3400 meters away without a suppressor(unless the suppressor is a fixed suppressor weapon), and has a Sway Rating of 6.877 out of 8.125(lower is better).

Otherwise known as the B95, the Blaze can fire 2 .308 rounds in quick succession, or expel both rounds at the same time with a double shot. The Blaze is very powerful at range due to the double shot inflicting twice the damage. The Blaze doesn't allow a muzzle attachment unlike the Winchester/Tundra.
The CR 527 used to be classed as a rifle but has been moved to the Sniper Rifle category due to its increased damage and accuracy. The CR 527 is otherwise known as the CZ 527 and functions much like the CR 550 Sniper Rifle. Fires 7.62x39 rounds.
The CR 550 Savanna is also known as the CZ 550. It is best described as being a hybrid of the M70 Tundra(Winchester) for its damage and range, and the CR 527 for its external magazine. Using .308 rounds, this sniper rifle has high damage and is best used at range due to its slow rate of fire. The hunting scope makes this weapon very powerful at sniping objects at a range and the 10 round magazine makes your true RPM better than most Sniper Rifles in DayZ
The Mosin Nagant uses 7.62x54 rounds and is a favourite for many players since the birth of DayZ. The Mosin is very powerful at long distance, but due to the Mosin being bolt-action like many Sniper Rifles in DayZ, it is more difficult to use in close quarters combat. For this reason, it is best to have a secondary firearm for close range shootouts.
The M 70 Tundra is also known as the Winchester and is widely considered to be one of the best Sniper Rifles in DayZ. Using .308 rounds, this Sniper Rifle has high damage and is best used at range. The Hunting Scope makes this weapon very powerful at sniping at a range, and allows the Improvised Suppressor so you can be stealthy while using this firearm.
Otherwise known as the Scout Rifle, the Pioneer has been moved to the Sniper Rifle category due to its long distance damage, optic weapon attachments and other capabilities. The pioneer fires 5.56x45 rounds so does not inflict as much damage as the other Sniper Rifles, but does allow great gun optics and the same suppressor that attaches to the M4A1.
Otherwise known as the B95, the Sawed Off Blaze can fire 2 .308 rounds in quick succession, or expel both rounds at the same time with a double shot. The Sawed Off Blaze is very powerful at range due to the double shot inflicting twice the damage, but not as good as the regular Blaze. The Sawed Off Blaze can be crafted by combining a Blaze with a hacksaw.
The Sawed-off Mosin uses 7.62x54 rounds and still allows the attachment of weapon Optics/Sights. While improving mobility, sawing off the Mosin reduces many stats and is considered a sin among many in the DayZ community. Due to its size, this can be easily concealed in clothing. Be aware that when sawing off the Mosin in DayZ, you will lose the ability to accurately use the iron sights.
The SSG 82 is a bolt action "sharp shooter rifle" that is very similar to the Pioneer/Scout already in DayZ. It has a 5 round magazine It has a fixed optic as standard that zooms 4 times and works very much like the AUG A1 optic, in that it doesn't provide statistical benefits like other optics/sights and comes with good peripheral vision. Unlike the AUG A1 fixed optic, the SSG 82 fixed optic doesn't allow you to switch from optic to iron sights. The SSG 82 fires 5.45x39 rounds.
One of the quietest weapons in DayZ as standard. Similar to the AS VAL in terms of stats. The VSS is not only suppressed as standard, but always has subsonic bullet speeds and won't make a weapon crack sound as a result. Fires 9x39mm rounds.

Sniper Rifles have a slow rate of fire in exchange for high damage in DayZ. The damage mostly comes from the ammunition used by the firearm but nearly all Sniper Rifles in DayZ are great at long range combat. Nearly every Sniper Rifle comes with an Optic or Sight to increase the guns accuracy, magnification and zeroing range. While not all Snipers in this weapon category perfectly suit being called a Sniper Rifle due to characteristics like the round they use or their weapon damage, they certainly have most of the capabilities of a long range firearm.
Sniper rifles are intended for long-range precision shooting. They have great magnification sights, powerful ammunition, bolt-action firing, and a stable base to reduce recoil and movement. Military and law enforcement utilize them to observe, survey, and assassinate high-value targets. Sniper rifles are classified into various varieties, each with its unique set of characteristics and functions.
Weapons in DayZ can be split into serveral weapon categories that are as follows: Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Sub Machine Guns, Rifles, Shotguns, Pistols and Projectile Firearms.
DayZ weapons have a lot of stats that impact how a weapon will react to different situations. These stats can be changed slightly or drastically by attaching attachments to your weapons in DayZ.
Rifles are long firearms that are powerful and can hit targets accurately at range. Making them a great choice stealthy players that like to shoot from a distance.
Shotguns are incredible dangerous up close, but lack in effectiveness at medium and especially long distance. Shotguns are best used in urban combat for this reason.
Handguns are compact firearms that can only be shot and handled with one hand. They are less powerful and accurate than rifles, but they are more concealable and portable. They are classified into several categories, including revolvers and pistols. While the cylinder of a revolver rotates in place of a magazine, the magazine of a handgun may hold a significant number of rounds.
