The TRG-42 is a sniper rifle that uses the .338 Lapua Magnum round. Designed as a precision tool, all details are honed to near perfection to satisfy the most demanding shooters. It has excellent penetration which makes all Kevlars useless. It is considered as an improvement of the AWP due to its lighter weight and better scope crosshair which leads to higher accuracy.

- Aiming for the head is good, but body shots can still kill the enemy quite easily.
- It is not recommended to use this weapon in Zombie Scenario due to its low rate of fire.
- If you hit an enemy in the legs, finishing them off with a pistol is highly recommended.
- Do a surprise kill by jumping out from an obstacle and shoot the enemy. However, this tactic needs proper skills and practice because the wrong timing will make you miss the target and get killed by the enemy.
- Avoid no-scoping while firing this weapon because it is very inaccurate.
- Always perform a quick switch (Default key: ) after a shot as it is much quicker and allows you to kill your enemy with your secondary if you missed or if they are still alive.
