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 world's 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 150 studs and a 1SK to the head at all ranges. The range is respectable for its class, with its damage drop-off commencing at 150 studs and ceasing at 200 studs. Muzzle velocity is best in class, at 3200 studs per second. The Intervention also has a generous steady time when scoped in, only surpassed by the BFG 50, Hecate II, and M107. It has a decently high rate of fire (RoF) as other sniper rifles, such as the AWM, being on the faster side of its class. With the high damage combined, it is a good weapon in general.

It has very poor handling characteristics. Aim down sights (ADS) time is quite slow, as is its walk speed. Reload times are rather sluggish, taking 3.2 seconds for a tactical reload, but an even lengthier 5.9 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 third 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 a well-rounded sniper rifle that can be used by players new to sniping, providing the user with an 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 being used aggressively. However, given the 1SK to the torso up to a very forgiving 150 studs, one may hipfire when switching to their secondary. Paired with a laser sight, hipfiring becomes more precise, predictable and easier to perform. Optics such as the TA33 ACOG may help when dealing with targets within the 150 stud range—despite the Intevention's role as a precision rifle, extremely aggressive tactics relying on targeting the torso are viable.

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.

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 PSO-1 Scope or 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.

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, various lasers are very beneficial, since it improves recoil recovery time, ADS speed, and hipfire performance. Not only making a last-ditch effort to kill an enemy via hipfiring more plausible, but it can also generally mean one can kill faster in longer range as well. A Straight Pull Bolt will also benefit the user as the attachment negates the sluggish ADS time after bolting.

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. It's high damage and muzzle velocity puts a focus on long range combat while the 1SK to the torso to around 150 studs allows the user to perform close range combat with limited ease.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Third highest magazine capacity in-class.
  • High RoF for its class.
  • Second longest steady time in class.
  • High damage—1SK to the torso up to 150 studs.
  • Highest muzzle velocity in-game of 3200 studs/s.

Cons:

  • Slow ADS time.
  • Long reload time.
  • Slow walk speed.

Trivia

  • The Intervention's old firing sound was similar to the SRR-61 sniper rifle from Battlefield 4, which is the Intervention but under a different name.
  • Before its overhaul, when a grip was equipped on the Intervention, its unique built-in handle was removed; grips now sit in front of the built-in handle.
    • Additionally, the Ballistics Tracker would also not function correctly when used with other optical attachments, excluding the default scope. This since been fixed.
  • 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.
  • 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 placement is interesting as it is located underneath the barrel.
