[U.S.Rifle, 30-06 caliber, Model 1903 A1] A bolt-action rifle used by the U.S. Army from WWI to the beginning of WWII. As it adopts a Mauser-style locking mechanism, it has extremely high accuracy and durability.
  — Weapon Description 

The M1903 Valory is a bolt-action sniper rifle used by snipers, and is available for permanent purchase in the in-game shop for 12.000 Euros by soldiers of any rank. It is an original as opposed to an upgraded model and/or custom variant; a slender model with a long scope, and is based on the real-life weapon of the same name.

Overview

Statistic wise, the M1903 Valory is extremely similar to the Mosin-Nagant, sharing almost every statistic, with the exception of damage and fire rate, where this weapon actually surpasses. It therefore boasts a fast scope-in and draw speed, coupled with both high damage and range. Despite this weapon's competitive overall speed, being a bolt-action sniper rifle means that you are still advised to quick-switch whenever possible in order to minimize the delay between successive shots.

Since the M1903 Valory is able to rapidly fire, engaging groups of targets is easier. It doesn't have a second level of scope magnification available, meaning it isn't particularly designed for longer ranges, but the magnification provided still makes locating targets comfortable at most distances. The single phase and fast scope-out speed enables heightened mobility, allowing you to push harder, rush for longer and flank more often, and means that you can recover faster after shooting.

The M1903 Valory rarely tags due to its high damage and range, however you may still experience tagging when shots land on a target's limbs; but this will most likely only occur when they are wearing higher-tiered armor at much longer distances. Armor generally does not appear to affect the damage done to the torso – shots to the upper body and neck will still secure the kill, unless the shot has first penetrated another player or surface, in which case a head-shot would be necessary to avoid tagging.

The M1903 Valory has quite a high accuracy when hip-firing, similar to other popular sniper rifles such as the DSR-1 and FR-F2. This means that, in close-quarter combat, no-scoping is very viable. Since tagging at point-blanc range is hardly observed, when landing a shot this way, you can expect to secure the kill most of the time. Due to this weapon's high overall speed, this method of play is not usually encouraged, as more tactical plays can be made at medium and long distances.

Tips

If you would like to create your own tip, please make sure you read the example usage for the tip template first.
• If you intend to rush, or know that you will be facing multiple targets, make sure you have full or high remaining ammo, as the M1903 Valory will reload each bullet successively, which can be slow. Quick-switching when engaging groups will help to minimize the recovery time between each shot.

• Although the M1903 Valory will rarely tag, it is ideal to aim for the torso of targets at long distances. Shots to the limbs will usually secure a kill (depending on how much armor your opponent is wearing), and as such, no-scoping is a viable option at close range if it becomes necessary to do so.

• Despite only having one scope phase, the M1903 Valory makes it comfortable to aim at the majority of distances, so don't feel obligated to escape if your target is far away. This weapon does however perform at its best at mid-range, and excels against other sniper rifles due to its fast overall speed.

Trivia

If you would like to add your own trivia, please make sure you read the example usage for the tip template first.
• The M1903 Valory, at the time of writing, is the most expensive red ticket weapon to ever be released, requiring 400 of them. It was also available through in-game mystery boxes made available in the capsule shop. The high ticket requirement is meant to be a reflection of its outstanding ability.

• The M1903 Valory and the Mosin-Nagant have very similar statistics, but has not been explicitly released as an upgraded variant. Damage increased by 1, meaning that tagging occurs slightly less often. Fire rate had a minor increase, but this is not usually observed due to quick-switching.

• The M1903 Valory cannot be modified, omitting the need to pay for any extra recurring costs. Due to this, in comparison to other sniper rifles of a similar tier, this weapon could be considered a cheaper option in terms of euros required to maintain it. Again, this is also observed in the Mosin-Nagant.
