The VSS Vintorez might just be your new best friend.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds monthly update is coming this week on May 25 and we can expect patch notes tomorrow according to the game’s Twitter account.

New content is being teased, and amongst the new weapons rolling out is the VSS Vintorez sniper rifle.

PvPLive reports that the VSS isn’t your run-of-the-mill sniper rifle.

It has a built-in suppressor and comes with a scope already equipped. While you’ll be able to swap out the scope, you won’t be able to remove the suppressor.

At first glance it may seem OP but it’s apparently hard to handle at long range because of bullet drop.

We’ll post the patch notes when they’re live to let you know what else is in store for Thursday.
