Early inventory images of the weapon (to v1.3003) will depict it with the "arrow" icon denoting a unique weapon. Later renderings (v1.4005) will show it with the "arrow plus spanner" icons denoting a modified unique weapon. The reason for this variance is that the "spanner" icon is a Developer's Cut (v1.4000+) addition to various property sets.
In releases to v1.3003 the weapon is, largely a trophy object, and the player frequently has the opportunity to acquire a (free, unmodified) Sniper rifle SVDm-2 from the first encountered sniper during transit between the Military HQ and the Ecologist Outpost during the Meet Ecologist contact segment. By not sniping and killing him, he may be "provoked" into 'wall walking' down to the player by the garages. The building is inaccessible at all times to the player, but the dropped weapon may fall outside.
