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.

Overview[]

The Grom is a semi-automatic sniper rifle, similar to the Lebensauger .308 and Contractor .308.

In comparison, the Grom has a 10 round magazine equal to the Lebensauger, the highest potential concealment of all sniper rifles, and is tied with the Contractor .308 for the fastest reloads. Its accuracy lies in the middle while its stability is equal to the Contractor .308.

Overall, the Grom lies inbetween the Lebensauger's superior accuracy and Contractor's sustained fire, but without accuracy-increasing mods and skills, it is better suited for medium-to-close range combat, complete with a dedicated Iron Sight option.

As a sniper rifle, damage ramps up at long range rather than falling off. Ramp up begins at 20 meters and damage increases linearly, up to 10% bonus damage at 25 meters.

Summary[]

Pros

  • Decent damage, can kill most enemies in one head shot on Overkill difficulty and below
    • Damage increases slightly at long range
  • Tied with Lebensauger .308 and Contractor .308 for highest rate of fire in class
  • High ammo pickup
  • High base Concealment
    • Highest potential Concealment of all sniper rifles, at 25
  • High magazine capacity
  • Tied with the Contractor .308 and Káng Arms X1 for the fastest reloads of all magazine-fed sniper rifles
  • Large unique mod pool

Cons

  • Mediocre base accuracy for a sniper rifle
    • Can be remedied using mods and skills, with little to no penalty
  • Strong recoil
  • Low total ammo
  • Slow weapon draw/holster

Tips[]

  • 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 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 more than remedied just by being particularly diligent at picking up ammo drops.

Trivia[]

  • 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.
    • This same rifle was also used by the Snipers on Boiling Point before it was officially released as a usable weapon, similar to how the Jackal was previously enemy-exclusive before it became available to players.
