Hi guys, welcome to the Russian 1895 Sniper. Today I will disclose everything that you need to know to dominate the Battlefield with this sniper rifle. The Russian 1895 is actually the Winchester Model 1895, this name will probably ring a bell. Between 1915 and 1917 approximately 300,000 M1895’s were manufactured for the army of the Russian Empire. It was possible to reload this rifle with the same charger clips used in the Mosin-Nagant, and this is the gun that Vasily Zaytsev used. And he was played by Jude Law in Enemy at the gates. I’m sure that most of you have seen that movie. OK, no more name-dropping from now on, let’s start with the statistics. One bullet will cause 80 damage. After 40 meters this damage will go up and at 60 meters you are able to one shot kill your enemy. This is the start of your sweet spot and it will continue up to a range of 98 meters. After 98 meters your damage will drop again and it will eventually settle back at 80 damage. That means that you can kill your enemy with only one shot from 60 meters until 98 meters. If you have seen the video about the Martini-Henry then you know that it has a sweet spot between 30 and 80 meters.

So the optimal range of the Martini-Henry is closer than the optimal range of the 1895. So make sure that you adjust your strategy and that you keep a little bit more distance between yourself and your enemy. The Russian 1895 can fire 64 rounds per minute. That is almost twice as fast and the Martini. Outside of the sweet spot range you will need 2 bullets to kill, except for a headshot of course, so the time to kill is 0.940 seconds and at 100 meters this will become 1.062 seconds. You will almost never be able to achieve a time to kill of 1.062 seconds because you will have to zoom in again, you will have to readjust your aim and you will probably have to lead your target again.

Unless you are the Terminator, it will be very difficult to constantly kill you enemies in 1.062 seconds. On the other hand, time to kill within the sweet spot range is almost instant because you only need one bullet, so try to focus on killing everything and everyone within your sweet spot range. The Russian 1895 has a muzzle velocity of 820 m/s. That is the second highest muzzle velocity of all sniper rifles in Battlefield 1.Like every other sniper rifle, the bullet drop is 12 m/s2. You will start off with a strip clip of 5 bullets and you will have another 25 bullets available to you to kill those 25 other guys.

You have a few variations that you can unlock. The statistics that I just gave you are for the Russian 1895 Sniper. This one comes with a telescopic sight and a bipod. You can modify your Cross Reticle and you can adjust the magnification. I have always been playing with the 6 times magnification in this video. You can equip a bayonet if you think that you will be needing it and I was lucky enough to get my hand on the Royal Order and the Royal Statute. You can always choose to unlock the Infantry version. This one regains accuracy more quickly and it pretty much has the same statistics as the Sniper. Unfortunately no telescopic sight, so you can only select an iron sights or the radium sights. You can also modify the magnification and you have the option to select a bayonet. The last variation is the Trench. It offers a faster action at the cost of reduced damage. You can modify your weapon in a similar fashion as the Infantry variation. The statistics on the other hand, are very different. There is no sweet spot. Just for info, I’m sure that you noticed, but this version is pretty much the same as the Russian 1895 Cavalry, the one you get when you spawn on a horse.

I will include those statistics as well. Maximum damage is 79, and your damage will drop to a minimum of 40. The drop will start at 10 meters for the trench and at 15 for the Cavalry. Both of them have a rate of fire of 124 rounds per minute. You will need 2 bullets to kill up to a range of 32 meters for the trench and up to 41 meters for the other one. TIme to kill is 0.487 seconds for both of them and the muzzle velocity is 580 meters per second and 610 for the cavalry. I have tried playing with all the different reticles. I have to say that I am very familiar with the cross reticle so that will always be my starting point. I find that it is very easy to lead your target with this this one because you have a precise horizontal and vertical line that you can use as a reference. I was very impressed with the Chevron reticle, it was easier to use than I first expected. It’s very clear when you are dealing with a stationary target. The Beam Reticle reminds me of kobra sight in Battlefield 4 so I’m not used to seeing this one on my sniper rifle.

Now, I ha ve absolutely no clue how this pilot survived that one, he must have been a paratrooper or something. This was actually my first kill with the beam reticle. I have also tried the Post reticle but for me it seems as if something is missing. I find it more difficult to lead my target with this one. By the way, guys the Youtube likes and shares are very helpful to me. If you think that this video is worthy, would you mind taking a moment to like this video and to share it with all you buddies? This was FOG of GAMING, thanks for watching and I will see you on the Battlefield!.
