The Type 88 and the SVD are functionally the same (though the zoom sight picture differs). They are very accurate weapons, but not as accurate or damaging as the M24, especially at longer ranges, though long range shots are still quite possible. Rapid-firing an SVD/Type 88 incurs very harsh accuracy and recoil penalties, (making them less accurate than an AK-47 after the second shot!) so it is best to pause a moment between each shot whenever possible.
It is possible to get a one-shot-to-the-head kill with either of these rifles, but it will take three shots to the torso to kill a full health player.
The Type 88 marksmen rifle or QBU-88 is a gas operated, semi-automatic rifle that was intended to fire semi-automatic at greater distances than other assault rifles rather than as soley a sniper rifle. Currently used by the PLA and Chinese police forces it features iron sights but can be equiped with a 4x telescopic or night sight. The Type 88 was made for heavy loading of a 5.8 x 42 mm cartridge but can also fire standard 5.8 mm ammunition. This is a very effective rifle up to a distance of around 800 m and with 10 rounds and semi-auto fire it allows you that extra chance of finishing the enemy off. 1)
