Availability

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

In Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, the Dragunov SVD is called the SVD Sniper. It is one of the most common snipers in the game, and although it features an unorthodox scope, it is fairly easy to get the hang of, has high power, and features a very large magazine. This rifle can be found in the following:

Hitman: Contracts

The rifle is called the Dragunov. This rifle can be found in the following:

Hitman: Blood Money

The rifle is called Dragunov SVD, equipped with Belomo 1P-21 PO3-9x42 Minuta Sniper Scope, which has an unique scope raticle and one zoom level. It has a higher rate of fire than the Kazo TRG and Elephant Rifle, only outclassed by Customized WA2000. Not including the Customized WA2000, it is the most accurate and powerful rifle in the game primarily due to its stability and large zoom in comparison with the other 3 sniper rifles found in the game. It can decimate most NPC's without a headshot; a shot to any part of the body will do the job. This rifle can be found in the following:

  • Death of a Showman - Found inside the rifle case, before the ferris wheel part. Two more guards will use this gun, but these are not obtainable. (Can only be kept by storing in ICA crate or bring it along at the end)
  • A Dance with the Devil - Found inside the rifle case next to the desk with the laptop; persumably belonged to Eve.

Trivia

  • In Hitman: Blood Money, the Dragunov is one of the two sniper rifles that NPCs are seen carrying. They are carried by two sentries in Death of a Showman. The other sniper rifle used by NPCs is the Kazo TRG, which Raymond Kulinsky will use in The Murder of Crows if he gets the order to do so.
  • Also, in Blood Money, the Dragunov is one of the three weapons that can carry via a rifle case, the others are FN-2000 and WA-2000.
  • The Dragunov in Contracts bears some similarities to PSL-54C, the Romanian SVD derivative, its design and operating principle is actually more similar to AKM rather than SVD.
  • The "R" is for Rimmed cartridge, which is commonly used by Russian sniper rifles, machine guns and service rifles until WW2. The 7.62x54R is still popular around the world.
