The M24 Sniper Weapon System (SWS) is the military and police version of the Remington Model 700 rifle, M24 being the model name assigned by the United States Army after adoption as their standard sniper rifle in 1988. The M24 is referred to as a "weapon system" because it consists of not only a rifle, but also a detachable telescopic sight and other accessories. The M24 can be seen as an upgrade to the Kar98k, with a higher muzzle velocity and damage, although it has slightly more deviation when not aiming down the sights. Being loaded via magazines, tactical reloads will be faster compared to the Kar98k's one-by-one reload, although full reloads with the M24's standard magazine will be slightly slower compared to a full reload with the Kar98k. Nevertheless, the M24 is a valuable weapon that should be prioritized for its ability to deal large amounts of damage at long distances.
