- "Relatively rare" amongst 4★
- Not as good as the top tier general RFs in future content
SVD is a wonderful starter gun as she is the best performing 4★ RFs out there. Her base FP and RoF stats, being 130 and 37 respectively, are very good and go hand-in-hand with her skill, making her one of the go-to RFs in early game.
When given the right buffs, SVD can be a heavy hitter who's able to dish out a lot of DPS. Being an RoF self-buffer, she is less dependent on having RoF buffs from HGs. Regardless, she does require some RoF buffs to hit as close to the cap as possible, though often it is easy enough to leave room for at least one more FP HG. Typical starter comps would include one FP buffer like or , and one RoF buffer like or . The last HG can be a FP buffer like or a utility HG like .
- Other options such as or are just as viable, though an FP buffer would have to be placed on position 5 instead.
Nevertheless, in the current meta SVD struggles to keep up with first-line general-use RFs such as, , , and as the player progresses and have the resources to invest on them. Since generalist RFs are often shoved out of meta in future content (due to enemies having a much larger health pool and can give your frontline immense pressure if not properly dealt with), SVD won’t see major use in the near future. Strong specialist RFs like (single-target sniping) or (sure-hit) will be fielded much more often for ranking maps despite not being as generally flexible as SVD.
SVD is a RF Recommended for early game. She would probably be replaced as you progress as her stats are subpar compared to other general-use RFs - though some of the top-of-the-line RFs (like / ) are limited and you may not have a choice in the matter. SVD is Optional if you already made significant progress in the game.
