Semi-automatic marksmen rifle fed from a detachable magazine. Compatible with KA scopes. Uses 7.62x54mmR rounds. — In-game description

The VSD is a late-game, military marksman/sniper rifle in DayZ. Largely considered to be an "end-game" weapon, the VSD is chambered in 7.62x54mmR Rounds.


The VSD (Dragunov's sniper rifle system, model of 1963) is a designated marksman/sniper rifle, developed in the Soviet Union during the early sixties and approved for service in 1963. It fires the 7.62x54mmR cartridge and can be fed using 10-round stamped steel magazines, but can also be chambered by using a single 7.62x54mmR round. Its role is squad-level marksman shooting, being able to pick out targets on ranges far longer than that of the KA's combat range.

The VSD is one of few rifles that can use the night vision optic and normalized suppressor.
