video in this video we're gonna be talking about the VSS the VSS was for a long time considered very viable as a late game or meta weapon and it very much so still is but in this video we're gonna be talking about why it can also be incredibly viable as a

budget

weapon that absolutely wrecks players from hatchlings all the way up to super geared players I extreme

a few days a week and all my links will be down below absolutely love to have you stop by say hey ask questions or just hang out so we'll be there but with all that stuff out of the way let's go ahead and dive right in so right out of the gate right at the beginning of this video I want to put a disclaimer out there that of course this is not the cheapest gun to run this isn't the absolute most

budget

gun to run an

you can absolutely get away and have some really effective weapons that are cheaper than this to run it really kind of comes down to what your interpretation of

budget

is now this isn't a 300,000 ruble weapon that I'm calling

budget

just because I can afford it or anything like that when I consider the price of performance ratio and what this gun can accomplish and stack that against the price of other weapons that can accomplish similar things I definitely consider this

budget

you know this is a perfect weapon if you're an intermediate player and...
ultimate budget gun for pvp   escape from tarkov beginners guide
you're looking to give yourself something that is going to basically be effective in any situation against any enemy that you come across without breaking the bank I think this is perfect you know we'll get into the specifics a little bit later of why and how I backup that I think this is a great

budget

weapon but I just wanted to put that out there right at the very beginning of course you can grab a Mosin with no armor and shove all the rounds in your alpha container is gonna be cheaper you're gonna be able to once have geared players and that's great but I think this serves a different purpose this sets you up for more situations and it's a lot of fun to run and kind of going back to what I said here in the intro the VSS is so commonly associated with endgame you know PvP meta weapons and it is absolutely still equipped for that but a few things have happened that I think really bring it down and push it into that

budget

category as well one you know the I don't know if it's just because they've added the VSS and the vowels to Raiders and to player scabs and stuff like that but there seems to be more of them which make them a easier to come by just by playing the game but B it makes them way cheaper so if you look on the flea market you can get a VSS for under fifty thousand plenty of them for right at about that fifty thousand rule mark which is may seem like a lot yeah you can get an ak74 N or M for maybe like eighteen thousand rubles but...
ultimate budget gun for pvp   escape from tarkov beginners guide
look at the stats on this weapon without absolutely anything done to it I just put a mag in 44 vertical recoil I'm pretty sure and absolutely meta kitted out full attachments ak-74 n comes to around 46 47 48 vertical recoil and that's what hundreds of thousands of rubles worth of attachments put on that gun and this stock standard with nothing on it has 44 vertical recoil and 78 horizontal these things aren't laser beams and so when you factor that in for 50000 rubles getting a weapon that you can just immediately take out and have those types of stats is absolutely unreal the second thing that happened is they buffed a few of the ammos that the VSS and the Val take that were previously not used pretty much at all and we're gonna talk about why I think SP 5 is the perfect

budget

weapon but diving into like some of the prices right so the VSS itself is about 50000 rubles you can purchase these 20 round mags from propor at I believe level 3 first just over 6000 rubles and if you don't have rapport unlocked yet for 75 to 8 thousand roubles you can buy you know more of the 20 round mags the the ammo that goes into it so let's talk about that for a little bit so SP 5 for a really long time was regarded I mean it is the lowest tier ammo that in the game right now that these guns take it but with 35 pen and 68 flesh damage and the fire rate of the VSS which is another thing another huge thing that draws people to this weapon 900rpm once again if we're...
ultimate budget gun for pvp   escape from tarkov beginners guide
comparing it against an aka I believe in ak74 N and an ak-74m have a rain of fire have 650 so a significantly higher rate of fire and 35 penetration value SP 5 can shred armor so if you haven't downloaded the battle buddy yet on iOS or Android I highly recommend it one of the really cool things you can do is set up simulations basically where I can say I want to pit SP 5 up against you know a specific armor like a Gen 4 or a Zook so a Zook class 6 armor I believe it's made out of ceramic which is why it takes a little bit fewer shots but it's the most common class 6 armor because the 6p 43's have such our gonna make panel T's SP 5 will not penetrate it on its first few rounds but it will take it from full durability to basically zero durability and 5 shots now you do the same thing against a Gen 4 which is probably considered you know the meta armor it's class 5 it's got a lot of durability there cheaper than Class six armors 7 shots from this against a full Gen 4 we'll take it down to 0-7 shots at 900 rounds-per-minute is so easy to accomplish if you can put some shots on target now it is fair to say the downfall of that 900 rounds-per-minute is the fact that you're rocking 20 round mags and if you're missing your shots it's really easy to dump all your rounds and have to reload they do make 30 rounders for this but I think they're around 12 thousand roubles or no maybe thirty thousand roubles per magazine yeah around thirty...
thousand rubles per magazine so definitely not considered

budget

but so that you know that's definitely a downfall but SP 5 is an absolute shredder I was doing with a buddy we were both rock PSSs we were both rocking sp5 we were going to shoreline and we were absolutely wrecking geared players if you can get shots on them you are gonna zero that armor superfast if you can get shots on that face shield it doesn't even matter you know the fast empty facial this is just gonna shred right through it so like we said no attachments 20 rounders and sp5 this thing is a laser beam the other insane benefit to sp5 insane benefit is it is only from so you can get these for really cheap 99 roubles per bullet but even from propor buying them from the trader there are a hundred and forty two rubles per bullet and this is the most insane thing you can buy as many as you want as many as you want so SP six is kind of considered like the best like balanced round you know you can get rounds like BP that absolutely shred but they're like twelve thirteen fourteen hundred roubles around SP six used to be considered like what the lowest tier of what somebody would want to run these are six hundred roubles around and you can only buy 200 so even six hundred roubles definitely isn't the worst in the game right now but you can only buy 200 now you're having a buy off the flea market but SP five is a hundred and forty roubles around from purp or even cheaper on the flea market...
sometimes and you can buy an unlimited amount which is absolutely insane for the viability of this weapon so you know ammos talked about a lot in

when you think about something like an m4 if you're rockin em 995 you know if you always want to use the meta ammo if you're one of those guys you know taking 360s and a stack of extra in your gamma or your alpha or whatever it is at 1,400 1,500 rules around that's over three hundred and fifty thousand roubles just in ammunition per raid you're having to buy them off the flea market because you can only buy so much from peacekeeper he's sold out all the time and think about that's just the ammo that's not the weapon if you die that's not the other gear that you're trying to protect that weapon with it's so hard to be profitable when you're spending that much on ammo so you know Oh somebody in the chat was talk to me about sp5 I've been running it for a few days and I really can't speak to once again the price to performance ratio yes of course sometimes you're gonna die because you didn't have better ammo and if you had the best ammo I landed two shots on the guy and if I had the best ammo that would have killed him but I didn't have the best and most who I died that's gonna happen once in 10 15 20 times but the amount of money that you are going to save and how easy it is to be profitable in your raids when you're only spending 142 rubles per...
bullet is definitely gonna make you money in the long run so another cool thing about the VSS is this got the dovetail mount so sites like the okay p7 which I really like this optic there's two versions one is the dovetail mount you can just throw that right on you don't need an adapter and you're good to go this optic can be purchased from skier and it is 18 thousand rubles so you know it's not incredibly cheap but the cool thing about these is that you can find them on scav weapons a lot a few different Scouts can spawn with these on them the Saiga shotgun scavs a lot of times will have these on them or players use them you can just save these if you don't want to purchase them or something like that also the PSO four-time scope is also a dovetail scope you can throw that right on without having any adapters or anything you can't use the iron sights I actually these are a relatively effective iron sights I'm not great with iron sights but I've used them before and they're pretty good if you want to attach your own optic like a PK o6 or something you can use the P lad mount which is only about 3000 rubles or 5000 rubles from jäger and you can then attach anything you want on there what I don't like about this is how high it sits off the gun it's cheap but it takes up a little bit too much of my field of view when I'm actually playing the game but they've recently added the SVD low-profile mount now this does the same thing...
it's a little bit more expensive at eight thousand roubles but it's it's so much lower on the gun it's so much easier to use and then any object that you've got you can on there so once again you can factor in the price of the optic when you're you know doing your

budget

run if you want but you know a lot of times what I do is I'll just throw a bunch of optics that I pick off of guns into a case or something and save them front when I know I want to use them but if you didn't want to use a pko six or something that's about fifteen thousand rubles on the flea market but you can do that now you can put four grips and flashlights on this weapon as well the B three mount which is just under three thousand roubles from skier you can throw this on now the only thing this is going to allow you to do is put like a flashlight or laser on it but if you like those in your gameplay style you can absolutely do that additionally though the toss mount the toss six B to 9 m mount you can purchase from jäger it's you know seven thousand rubles it is a little bit more expensive on the flea market if you don't have that unlocked or if they're sold out but you can get these pretty easy and what this allows you to do is put a flashlight and a flashlight analyzer if you wanted to and a four grip on it as well now the arcade 2 is kind of the metaphor grip you definitely can run cheaper ones any of the ones that you're comfortable with but...
it's pretty crazy you can get this down even further 239 vertical recoil which is absolutely insane I'm more partial to four grips on the VSS that increased her go just because it already has so little recoil that I'd rather take the ergonomic benefit there but so I did a little bit of math for what I would consider like a super

budget

run with this weapon you know if you went out and you purchased the gun itself and you put you know maybe an okay p7 on it you had four mags that were filled with SP five and a little bit of so you know you've got one of the gun and three and a little bit of extra SP five that's gonna cost you around a hundred and twelve thousand rubles now like we said at the beginning of this video one hundred twelve thousand rubles is still one hundred and twelve thousand rubles it's not by any means the cheapest thing that you can go with especially because you're just we're just talking about the gun the mags and the ammo like we said you can grab a Mosin or you can grab a super cheap a K and slap some ammo in there and you'll be fine but I don't think any weapon in this game for a hundred and twelve thousand rubles when you're including ammo extra ammo and the mags can shred Armour like this can like we said this is the most balanced if you're I don't have no problem mag dumping on a hatchling if he's running away from me or somebody who's got really low gear because I know I'm not shooting a...
hundred and you know I'm not shooting 1,500 rubles per round out of my weapon like sometimes if I have a meta a K or m4 and I've got the best ammo I almost feel bad killing lower tier players or scavs even because I'm wasting so it costs me money to kill them Oh something like this I have absolutely no problem just mag dumping people because I'm only spending a hundred forty roubles around but at the same time if a super geared player comes around the corner and I'm aiming for center of mass or their head I am confident that by the end of this twenty round mag I'm gonna drop them now we can even take this into the hideout with you know just stock standard like we said you just put the optic on no foregrip the forty three vertical recoil and we can kind of see the how this performs let's make sure we're on full auto and boom so like I said you definitely still have a little bit of that vertical kick just like all weapons do but you can absolutely just shred people and it's really easy to control even at longer distances you know all the way out there we're still keeping all our shots on-target just trying to control it a little bit and now like we said it's got that vertical pool and it's pretty easy like we said to completely mag dump and you know then have to get into a situation where your panic reloading know that that is probably the only downfall of this setup is that the 20 round mags make it a little bit harder you can...
totally flip it to semi-auto and try and you know against some headshots on some scabs or something like that but you know my advice would be get pretty close get to a position where you know that you can dump all these rounds on target if need be but that's really it that's that's kind of my pitch for the VSS as a

budget

weapon like I said I totally understand that there are more economic weapons to run and effective weapons but I hope that you learned a little bit something I hope that you maybe try this out one hundred twelve thousand roubles in the scheme of things is pretty cheap when you factor in attachments ammo magazines the price of the weapon I have been having an absolute blast running this and the profitability potential is huge because like I said you're not worried about wasting money every round that you put downrange so hope did this helped and I hope that you maybe try this out and have some fun with the VSS in
