The TRG-42 is a Finnish Sniper Rifle. It is unlocked at rank 84, or it can be purchased with credits.

History

The SAKO TRG-42 is a bolt-action sniper rifle designed in 1999 by SAKO, a Finnish firearms company owned by Beretta Holding and has been in production since 1999. It is a part of the larger TRG series of rifles first designed in 1989, with the TRG-42 being an upgraded variant of the older TRG-41, both being designed to fire larger rifle calibers such as .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum. It is also the primary competitor to the British Arctic Warfare line of rifles and its derivatives in the high-end sniper rifle market.

In-Game

General Information

The TRG-42 is a somewhat unusual sniper rifle in that it has a higher than average velocity for its class, at 3000 studs per second while featuring a small magazine and a slower fire rate. It makes up for this by having a very fast tactical reload time, the fastest in class. Inversely it has a very slow empty reload time. However, the TRG-42 takes time to cycle its bolt, longer than many other sniper rifles, resulting in an effective fire rate of 45 RPM. It also has a strong vertical kick, which makes following one's bullet trajectories a challenge. The TRG-42 has high maximum damage at 100, which translates as a one-shot kill (1SK) torso range at 97 studs, and is able to 1SK to the limbs in CQC, thus matching the same damage profile as the BFG 50, although it's minimum damage is lower than the aforementioned weapon, meaning the TRG does not have the same stopping power as the BFG, only making it a 2SK weapon outside its damage drop-off, excluding headshots.

Usage & Tactics

The TRG-42's closest equal is to the AWM. Both rifles feature a five-round magazine and similar damage ranges. Both rifles are bolt-action. However, compared to the AWM, the TRG-42 sacrifices fire rate for velocity and precision. Someone using the TRG-42 cannot fire as rapidly as faster sniper rifle users can, as the TRG-42's bolt cycling rate and effective fire rate is barely faster than the Intervention at 35 RPM. This may make it a hard sell for some users, as the Intervention features a larger magazine and a higher muzzle velocity of 3200 studs per second. However, the TRG-42 is a relatively light sniper rifle in terms of weapon handling. Unfortunately, the TRG-42 is not a mobile weapon, as all other sniper rifles ignoring the .50 BMG rifles and the Intervention, which have a slower walkspeed than the TRG-42. However, those that are conscious of their ammunition count are rewarded with a fast tactical reload, meaning that the TRG-42 can keep up a volley of sniper fire with minimal downtime. It can however be played aggressively if needed, as it features high CQC damage and a far torso kill range.

Conclusion

The TRG-42 sacrifices mobility, leaning towards a more distant and defensive playstyle. However, the TRG-42's overall handling makes it a snappy sniper rifle, something the heavier snipers cannot attest to.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • 1SK to anywhere in CQC.
  • Clean iron sights.
  • Above-average muzzle velocity for its class.
  • Long damage drop-off range, coupled with a large 1SK torso range.
  • Good scope steadying duration.
  • Quick tactical reload, best-in-class.
  • Can equip a long barrel, extending its torso kill range, damage ranges, and increasing its muzzle velocity.
  • Can benefit from Straight Pull Bolt to increase effective RPM.
  • Above average amount of reserve ammo for its class.

Cons:

  • Small magazine capacity for a sniper rifle.
  • Below-average minimum damage for its class.
  • Short maximum damage range—cannot 1SK to the torso beginning at 97 studs.
  • Long empty reload time for its class.
  • Low movement speed for a sniper rifle.

Trivia

  • The iron sights on the TRG-42 are MBUS flip-up iron sights.
  • The TRG-42 can equip Long Barrel, giving it a 1SK range to the limb up to 24 studs, however it also gives it a 1SK torso range of 134.5 studs.
  • The iron sights on the in-game representation of the TRG-42 are not the standard iron sights used on the TRG-42 in real life, and are actually ineffective for long-range as in real life the sight radius is about as large as a typical handgun's iron sights.
    • In real life, the TRG-42 has a dedicated iron sights system offered by SAKO, with a ring mount sight mount at the end of the barrel and an adjustable rear sight mount on the rail.
  • The smaller versions of the TRG-42, the TRG-21/22, are chambered in the 7.62x51mm NATO round.
  • SAKO does not offer a white chassis for the TRG line. They are offered in Black, Green, Tan, and Dark Earth.
    • This is the same case with the AWM.
    • Only a civilian competition custom model of the TRG-22 variant is offered in white camouflage, and not plain white.
  • The TRG-42's reload animation is a sped-up version of the Hecate's.
