The Intervention is an American Sniper Rifle. It is unlocked by default.

History

The CheyTac M200 Intervention is a bolt-action Sniper Rifle manufactured by CheyTac LLC, but also can be considered as an anti-material rifle. It can be chambered in either .408 CheyTac (10.36×77.21mm) or .375 CheyTac. It is based on the EDM Arms Windrunner M96. The caliber was designed for long-range use. It was designed for a potential military requirement for an anti-personnel, anti-sniper and anti-material roles with a precision range of 2,200 yards (2000 meters). CheyTac claims the weapon has a sub-Minute Of Angle (MOA) accuracy up to 2500 yd (2,286 m), one of the longest ranges of any modern day Sniper Rifle.

The cartridge is optimized for accuracy by a balance of the rotational and linear drag which reduces yaw and precision and keeps the tip of the projectile pointed along the trajectory. The receiver is made from solid milled steel for high reliability. Even though it shoots a smaller projectile than the .50 BMG, the barrel of the M200 Intervention is slightly thicker than the Barrett M82/107 for the best accuracy at long range.

The Intervention is considered one of the most accurate Sniper Rifles in the world, holding the world record for the best grouping of bullets at a distance, landing three bullets within 16.625 inches (42.23 centimeters) at 2,321 yds (2,122 m). However, the record holder for the worlds longest kill shot belongs to the McMillan Tac-50 at a distance of 3,540m.

Currently, the Intervention has seen use by the British Special Air Service[1], Polish GROM, Turkish Maroon Berets, Jordanian Army[2] and other military groups.[3]

In-Game

General Information

The Intervention is the first sniper rifle unlocked in-game. It sports high damage, dealing a one-shot-kill (1SK) to the torso up until around 100 studs and a 1SK to the head at all ranges. Range is respectable for its class, with its damage drop-off commencing at 50 studs and ceasing at 200 studs. Muzzle velocity is quite good, at 3000 studs per second; on par with all other snipers (not including the AWS). Subsequenlty, bullet drop is quite minimal. The Intervention also has a generous steady time when scoped in, only surpassed by the BFG 50 and the Hecate II.

The Intervention also has some major detractions. It does not have as high a rate-of-fire (RoF) as other sniper rifles such as the Remington 700, being on the slower end of its class. It also has very poor handling characteristics. Aim-down-sights (ADS) time is quite slow, as is its walk speed. Reload times are painfully sluggish, taking 3.2 seconds for a tactical reload, but an even lengthier 5.7 seconds for an empty reload. 

Magazine capacity is quite generous however. At seven rounds per magazine plus one in the chamber, the Intervention sports the second highest capacity in-class. When paired with the slow RoF,reloads become infrequent, although still remain an issue for the player. 

Usage & Tactics

The Intervention is well-rounded sniper rifle that can be used by players new to sniping, providing the user with a easy introduction to sniping mechanics in Phantom Forces. But it can also be quite powerful in the hands of a skilled marksman.  

The Intervention is mostly ill-suited to close-quarters-combat (CQC) given its very poor handling traits. Such statistics prevent the weapon from performing well in such a fast-paced environment. It should not be used in a very aggressive sniper role. However, given the 1SK to the torso up close, one may hipfire when switching to their secondary is not a viable option and is in a dire situation. Hipfiring is surprisingly viable with the Intervention, at least in very close-quarters scenarios. Paired with a laser sight, hipfiring becomes more precise, predictable and easier to perform. If one should miss, however, the slow RoF will punish the user severely, so hipfire should only be used as a last-resort. 

The Intervention's ideal range engagement is from medium to long-range, where its high damage and high muzzle velocity make it perform much better than most of its peers. It rewards a more defensive-orientated playstyle, where one watches an objective or chokepoint on the map from further away or sits on the objective and picks off enemies from afar. It is much better suited to a traditional marksman's role.

Various attachments are available for the Intervention, with some well-suited towards it and others not much of usefulness. Optical attachments are generally not needed if one is to use the weapon in a long-range role. However, most optics will reduce the slow ADS time of the weapon, making it more suited in a medium-range role.

If one is willing to sacrifice the high level of magnification for faster ADS time as well as better peripheral vision, the ACOG Scope is a wise choice for those who can place their shots accurately and retain precision at all ranges but desire a view of their surroundings and removal of tunnel vision. If one only wants a wider field-of-view (FOV) when ADS, the VCOG 6x Scope is a good choice as well, although lacks the faster ADS time of the ACOG.

Barrel attachments are generally not needed, although the Flash Hider is quite helpful, particularly when using an optic such as the ACOG or one of lower magnification. Suppressors are best avoided given the worse muzzle velocity and subsequenlty higher amount of bullet drop.

Grips too are not required. In order to achieve the maximum RoF, users must not be ADS in order to cycle the bolt, thus the weapon's aim recoil and kick are not observed, making the necessity of a grip less. In addition to this, attaching a grip will increase the already slow ADS time, making the detriment even worse.

In regards to Other attachments, equipping a Ballistics Tracker makes long-ranged engagements easier, pairing nicely with the Intervention's focus on long-range precision. A laser sight is also of benefit, improving hipfire performance and making a last-ditch effort to kill an enemy via hipfiring more plausible.

Conclusion

In the end, the Intervention is a very well-rounded sniper rifle and great for newcomers to get used to sniping. Furthermore, it has great potential, working suitably for experienced snipers and is arguably the best general purpose sniper rifle as all of the Intervention's stats sit in between the lighter agressive snipers such as the R700, and the more heavy laid back Hecate II and BFG.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Tied with Hecate II for third highest magazine capacity in-class.
  • Relatively high steady time of six seconds. Second best in class.
  • 1SK to the torso inside 100 studs.
  • Low bullet drop.
  • High muzzle velocity - same as The .50 BMG rifles at 3000 studs/sec.
  • Fourth highest damage values in-class (beaten by the BFG, Hecate II and M107).
  • Unlocked by default.

Cons:

  • Slow ADS time.
  • Long reload time.
  • Slow walk speed.
  • Distinctive and loud firing sound.

Trivia

  • The Intervention's old firing sound sounded similar to the SRR-61 Sniper Rifle from Battlefield 4, which is the Intervention under (most likely) its Jordanian designation.
  • Before its overhaul, when a grip was equipped on the Intervention, its unique built-in handle was removed; It now sits in front of the built-in handle.
    • Additionally, using different scopes with the Ballistics Tracker would prove strangely ineffective when aiming for the headshot. It was, however, accurate when used with the standard scope. This has since been fixed and all sights work properly with the Ballistics Tracker.
  • The Intervention is the heaviest weapon featured in-game, weighing at 31 pounds (14 kg) without a scope and up to 34 pounds with a scope.
    • Despite this, the lighter BFG (at ~25 pounds) still has a slower movement speed.
    • A newer variant of the M200 Intervention, by the name of M300, shaves down the weight to 21-19 pounds with a scope, which is only slightly heavier than lighter caliber rifles such as the L115A3 or M40A5 (R700 variant,) which are around 15-18 pounds depending on the setup and scope used. This is achieved through the use of carbon fiber or composite materials wherever possible. This variant, however, is also more expensive (at around $11,000) as it still has not circulated enough in the market to warrant a price drop.
  • The Intervention, alongside the first three sniper rifles in-game and the VCOG scope, had their scope reticles changed with the 2.2.0 update.
  • The Intervention's carry handle is interesting as it's located underneath the barrel.
  • In real life, the Intervention would be the most expensive weapon to purchase out of all the sniper rifles in-game, costing about the same as a Barrett M82A1 but generally slightly cheaper at $9,500 to $10,000.
    • With the addition of the M107 (which costs upwards of $13,000,) this is no longer the case.
    • It is still the most expensive weapon to shoot for every bullet expended however, being quite literally chambered in ten dollar bills as the .408 is an uncommon chambering (for comparison, even match grade .50 BMG costs $5 per round at most.)
