Question On Vanu Infiltrators


IIRC Vanu rifles have no bullet drop, but as a downside have very decreased damage at longer ranges. With the Infiltrator's sniper rifle will it be as noticeable as say a normal Vanu rifle?

im going to assume that even with the damage drop off from the range that the sniper rifle will still be a one hit kill to the head. Since they are adding hitboxes, headshots will prob have a damage modifier added to them.

Problem is that the scopes are off so headshots are a bitch to land.

Currently only the NC sniper rifle kills instantly on headshots. And to this current point that's the way it's going to be unless the other factions also get bolt action sniper rifles.

To the op: haven't played much VS infiltrator but when I did not really notice the damage reduction on them on longer ranges.

Ya know what a great counter to snipers is? Overkill. Fire a rocekt or explosive at them. Strafe their nest. They are priority targets. Use tactics.

Though yes I do agree that the sniper roles should be balanced.
