The SVA 545 has a unique firing sequence. It fires a two-shot burst when you first fire the weapon, followed by an automatic fire rate. While this may feel odd to start with, it has proven to be a strong contender due to its high damage and fast TTK. Don’t be afraid to let go of the trigger here and there to burst fire this weapon and maximize your DPS.

Selecting the HRMES Mod Suppressor as the Muzzle will increase the fire rate of the gun, while the suppressor will keep you hidden off the returning minimap. The addition of the FT TAC-Elite Stock and Demo-X2 Grip will help keep your shots steady to counter the increased bullet velocity.

Rounding out the gun, the 5.45 High Grain ammo will boost the damage range. This, combined with the 45-Roung Mag will allow you to easily ring out numerous rounds quickly.
