Description
Semi-automatic sniper rifle with high accuracy. The Grom Sniper Rifle is swift and easy to handle, without being too heavy.
The Grom is a sniper rifle in PAYDAY 2 added with the release of the Gage Russian Weapon Pack.

OverviewEdit

The Grom is a semi-automatic sniper rifle, though one with markedly worse accuracy compared to its competitors, the Lebensauger .308 and Contractor .308, though it soars over them in terms of raw damage. Overall, the Grom feels much more suited for medium-to-close range combat than the above two, complete with a dedicated Iron Sight option, fast reloads and great potential for high Concealment.

SummaryEdit

Pros

  • High base damage
  • High base and potential Concealment
  • High magazine capacity
  • Tied with the Contractor .308 for the fastest reload of all magazine-fed sniper rifles

Cons

  • Slow rate of fire for a semi-automatic weapon
  • Mediocre base accuracy for a sniper rifle
  • Strong recoil
  • Low total ammo
  • Slow weapon draw/holster

TipsEdit

  • The Grom can be used to quickly wipe out groups of common units, even certain special units like shields, provided headshots are scored. This can be a viable strategy sufficient enough to be a substitute for incendiary and explosive ammo if keeping civilians alive and ensuring team members are not harmed are a priority.
  • For those that find the Grom's damage too underwhelming for its role, consider replacing its scope with a low-magnification optic, or just remove it altogether, and use the rifle as they would a semi-automatic M308. They handle roughly the same way, though the Grom can pierce shields and plate armor, deals significantly higher damage and is vastly more compact to boot, making it an even better choice for stealth when modified. The only issue with this approach is ammo, but even that can be easily remedied with Fully Loaded Ace or just by being particularly diligent at hoarding drops.
  • Due to the low rate of fire, the Grom may not be suitable in fending off swarms of common units. A secondary weapon with a high rate of fire, like a SMG, is recommended to be carried to deal with such enemies.

TriviaEdit

  • The Grom is based on the Dragunov sniper rifle, often abbreviated as SVD. Its in-game name of "grom" (Гром) means "thunder" in Russian.
  • The Grom is currently the fourth sniper rifle to have its factory iron sights available to use in addition to the scope after the Repeater 1874Nagant and Platypus 70, the third to have them as an optional "attachment", and the only semi-automatic one to date.
  • Upon fully upgrading Chains' room in the Safe House, a Grom rifle lookalike can be seen on a desk. At a second glance, the "Grom" appears to be a distorted AK rifle with a shortened magazine and the Valkyria's Solid Stock.
    • The Grom was also used by the Snipers on Boiling Point before it was officially released as a usable weapon, simililar to how the Jackal was previously enemy-exclusive before it became available to players.
