I got the last Sniper Rifle ribbon I needed for the "Always Deadly" assignment and unlocked the SR338.

My first impressions of the SR338 is that it is a DMR with all the sniper rifle scopes. I'm really surprised this is in the same category as the rest of the sniper rifles. This gun reminds me of the SKS from BF3.
This gun is definitely a DMR except that its only good for medium range. Up close shots and you need at least 2-3 shots to kill an enemy at point blank range. This isn't good at all for my style of Aggressive Recon. I don't see how you can get 3 shots off in time when it has a bigger accuracy penalty than a regular DMR with follow up shots. Any other gun could easily take you out in a fire fight up close.
I was playing Domination on Operation Mortar when I got this UCAV Airburst triple kill. The shortest effective range for the UCAV is shown in this video. From the moment I shot it, I was holding up on the control to pitch the UCAV down as fast as possible until the last moment. Around 120 meters in the shortest distance a UCAV can be effective at.
The mortar and UCAV is a great combo for getting long distance kills.
The hovercraft is extremely fun to drive and this roadkill got me laughing pretty good. It also earned me the trophy "Killing Me Softly"
Destroying a helicopter with the main tank cannon.
The Attack Boat is king on these new maps.
I finally got the airburst upgrade unlocked for my UCAV and this is the results. Its a bit overpowered considering that I can get a kill with it every time I use it now. As you can see, that 90 second resupply definitely prevented me from dominating. I often jump around after getting kills with the UCAV because I want people to see where I am. I want them to counter me so I'll know how to counter it myself.
Shortly after this video I was marked as a High Value Target and I was quickly killed. I have also had the UCAV (either the missile or the launcher) get destroyed by a MAV which caused it to explode in mid air, then I was sniped.
The Naval Strike Maps are great for long range kills.
C4 can be thrown a small distance without having to be right on top of the enemy.
Watch as I take out two helicopters with my T-90 Main Battle Tank. On the second helicopter, my Staff Shell actually kills the pilot first and then registers as a vehicle hit.
I was sniping some enemies when I noticed a jeep was heading right towards me.
After ramming this thing into at least 20 people and never getting a kill with it, I finally got a couple kills with it tonight. The SUAV after the patch is nothing like in the other videos I've seen prior to it being patched. The only way I was able to get a kill with it was to go directly for the head shot of a prone enemy. After doing it twice in the same round, I will only attack prone enemies with the SUAV now.
I have no idea how to get the middle king assignment completed considering the SUAV will no longer kill anyone since the patch.
At the end of this video I achieved the closest thing possible to quickscoping in BF4.
BF4 Long Range Sniping 1,042 Meter Headshot with the SRR-61. This is the longest head shot I've had in this game so far. It looks like there are some graphical issues with BF4 on PS4 at this distance.
I finally got the bomber delivery ribbons I needed.
Watch as I unlock the Cruise Missile for the Bomber.
The Bomber Cruise Missile makes a good explosion but kills nothing unless its a direct hit. It is much weaker than the JDAM bombs. Sure you can direct its movement like a TOW missile, but its not that effective.
It took me over 8 minutes to get this bomber delivery ribbon. I wasn't playing this round as a good squad mate either. I went directly for the bomber, switching to whichever squad was closest to the bomber door at every opportunity.
This is actually the very first bomber delivery ribbon I got, but I couldn't get the video to upload correctly from my PS4 until now. Its pretty obvious I didn't know what I was doing with the bomber in this video and I lucked out with an assist counts as kill in the end. Check my other bomber videos to see better kills. The main thing with the bomber is to target stationary vehicles and infantry.
I'm getting better with the SUAV. In this video I successfully killed an enemy with the wing of the drone. But because of the SUAV patch, the drone quickly exploded instead of continuing a road kill streak.
This is an older video for me. Its the second time I got in a jet. I was trying to trigger the levolution, but when I saw an attack boat I took the shot. Thats when I realized that attack jets are extremely effective at destroying boats.
I unlocked the mortar and on my second time using it, I realized it's potential. The mortar can be devastating against stationary recon / snipers.
The first seat is a powerful 105mm M102 howitzer cannon. Great for taking out vehicles.
Once a jet gets to single digit hit points, the ejection seat should malfunction. I've been denied so many kills because of last minute ejections.
