A.V.A Global Wiki

A bolt action rifle developed by Sergei Mosin of Russia and Belgian engineer Leon Nagant. It was adopted as a service rifle by the Russian Army at the end of the 19th Century and was used throughout World War II. This rifle particularly helped the Soviet Union's Scharfschützen increase military gains.
  — Weapon Description 

The V Nagant is a bolt-action sniper rifle used by snipers, and is available for permanent purchase in the in-game shop for 200 red tickets by soldiers of any rank. It is an original as opposed to an upgraded model and/or custom variant; having been based on the real-life weapon of the same name.


The V Nagant boasts a fast scope-in and draw speed, coupled with both high damage and range. This makes for a weapon with extremely competitive overall speed but despite this, where it's a bolt-action sniper rifle, you are still advised to quick-switch when possible in order to minimize the delay between successive shots. Since this weapon is able to rapidly fire, engaging groups of targets is shown to be easier; proving suitability for smaller maps, rushing and flanking.

The V Nagant does not have a second level of scope magnification available, meaning that it isn't particularly designed for efficiency at longer ranges, but the magnification provided nevertheless makes locating targets comfortable at the majority of distances. The single scope phase and fast scope-out speed also enables heightened mobility – this tactical advantage allows you to push harder than normal when using a sniper rifle, and means that you can recover faster after shooting.

The V Nagant 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 V Nagant 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-blank 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.

The FR-F2 is a renowned sniper rifle and is very popular due to its consistent damage and massive armor penetration. Despite having lower damage and range than the V Nagant, the FR-F2 has proven to be more useful against targets with a higher armor rating due to its penetration statistic. It is also on-par with the V Nagant in terms of its hip-firing capability, but is let down slightly by its speed – having a slower draw and scope-in speed means rushing becomes a less viable option, and leaves you faced with a bigger penalty when missing shots.

• 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 V Nagant 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 V Nagant 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 V Nagant makes it comfortable to aim at the majority of distances, so you don't need to disengage 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.

• The V Nagant is one of the few weapons to have one of its variants featured as a jackpot weapon. In the sixth installment of the Mega Capsules, the Mosin-Nagant Steel Dragoon was released as the collection bonus, which required all other weapons to be bought, totaling 39,980 AP.

• While not being explicitly labeled as such, a direct upgrade of the V Nagant has been released as the M1903A1, which features extremely similar statistics across the board, but with improved damage and fire rate. However, in terms of red ticket cost this weapon is the cheaper option.

• The V Nagant 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 (and its existing variants) could be considered a cheaper option in terms of the euros required to maintain it.
