- In-game description

The Lynx is a unique sniper rifle and modified SVDm-2 featured only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

Characteristics Edit

The Lynx has been taken apart and reassembled together by hand with many modified components. As a result, the Lynx is more powerful and more accurate than a normal SVDm-2 as it deals a full 100 points of damage while being slightly more accurate. The Lynx is capable of outright killing or incapacitating lightly-armored stalkers and small mutants with a single body shot. Head shots are a guaranteed kill on almost any target.

The Lynx is the second-most powerful and second-most accurate gun in Call of Pripyat; the first being the Gauss Rifle. The Gauss gun is generally better when the player needs to take down fewer targets at longer ranges as it has a mediocre fire rate but deals twice the Lynx's damage per shot and has a much higher scope magnification. On the other hand, the Lynx is better when the player is facing multiple targets, as it has a much healthier fire rate, although the player will need to aim for the head to have a guaranteed one-hit kill.

Acquisition Edit

The player can acquire this rifle by asking Nimble for a sniper weapon. All sniper weapons cost 20,000 RU, the player may or may not get this particular weapon on the first request. Buying this gun - or any gun from Nimble - triggers a side quest with Snag who will attempt to take Major Degtyarev's gun away dishonestly claiming the weapon as his own.
