Hi guys and welcome to the M1907 SL Sweeper in Battlefield 1. The M1907 SL sweeper is actually the Winchester model 1907. It is a blowback-operated semi-automatic rifle and it was first produced in 1906 by the Winchester repeating arms company. The only cartridge offered by Winchester was the .351 caliber SL centerfire and the energy of this cartridge was very similar to the .357 caliber Magnum when fired from a rifle. The Winchester model 1907 was used during world war one by the United States, France, the British and the Imperial Russian Armed Forces. One bullet can cause 42 damage. This damage is going to drop, and unfortunately it will drop a lot. It will start to drop after meters, and it will reach its minimum at meters. After this range it will only be able to do 23 damage. So basically the damage almost reduced in half. The sl sweeper has a rate of fire of 299 rounds per minute and as you could have guessed it will need 3 bullets to kill up to a range of 27 meters. From this point it will need 4 and from 37 meters it will need 5 bullets to do this.
This is a lot for a gun like this. The initial time to kill is relatively good, 0.405 seconds. At the 20 meters reference point this time to kill will become 0.436 seconds. The problem starts after 28 meters because the time to kill will jump up to 0.651 seconds and after 37 meters you will need 0.868 seconds and this is a very long time. The M1907 SL sweeper has a muzzle velocity of 570 meters per second and you will start off with 21 bullets in your first magazine. Luckily they gave you another 63 for those ultra long killstreaks. Every medic class gun has a deploy time of seconds. The M1907 SL is available in a few different variations: the factory, the trench and of course the sweeper. The difference lies in the recoil and in the spread. The advantage of the sweeper is that it has a recoil up of compared to for the other 2. The advantage of the factory is that it has a higher recoil decrease and a higher spread decrease. And the trench has much better stats for hipfire, but you guessed that already. No telescopic sights for a gun like this but can select iron sights or or a buckhorn sight.
A 2 times magnification is the highest one you can select and then you still have your bayonet. So what is the verdict. The M1907 sl sweeper can be an easy gun for the medic class. For short range fire fights, just point and click. For longer range engagements it’s better to use tapfire so that you can have more control over your weapon. Know it’s limitations and use the distance to your advantage. Last but not least some extra medic tips free of charge.
There are times when you are in a gunfight and then one of your buddies who is playing as support takes over, just let him be because he is sometimes more suited to finish the job, you just focus on keeping him healthy. And if the guy still isn’t dead, then help out again with trying to kill him.Try to move with your team, don’t try to lead them into battle but try to stay in the middle or near the back of the pack.
Keep a close eye on everybody’s health circle if I may call it that. Don’t wait until they die but keep them alive and keep spamming your bandage pouches. So for once spamming is a good thing. And sometimes you will just have to spend all your time reviving and healing people. It’s a great way to keep your squad moving and to keep pushing the enemy back. The only reason why your squad is moving forwards is you, you can give them the ability to do that. And this is sometimes the difference between you winning or losing the entire round.
You’re a medic, never forget that. Whether you are the squad leader or not, you should always lead by example. You buddies will really start paying attention to you if they have been revived or resupplied for the 5th time in less than a minutes because your name will constantly be on their screen when you do that. This was FOG of GAMING, thanks for watching and I will see you on the battlefield.
