yah thats a good point...

im more worried about like...when your fighting over a building and snipers just sit there picking u off in the open..cuz from some of those screens cover looks kinda sparse in some places...other than that, is anybody really gonna wanna run to thier object? didnt think so heheh so most everyone will be in vehicles and such when covering distances. lol..watch some one get the 12x zoom implement and just cross continent snipe hehe.

I expect most assaults to start off with all our troops riding APCs protected by an armada of Tanks. A group of gunships will scout out ahead and pick off any snipers and straggling vehicles, closely followed by the Galaxy. The infantry will be well proteced and inside compound walls before the snipers get a chance to respawn Easy.

If there's a large defending force, snipers will be the least of our problems

yes, if u actually defend yourselves snipers won't be able to hit you

Ya know, the way T2 did it was pretty ingenious, you know, with the long laser beam that leads to the soruce of the sniper?

Maybe the Bolt Driver could have a magnetic wave around it (like a Guass in Fallout: Tactics or a Tracer on it

Besides, in every good team is a sniper or two, they're used for sniping off the enemy snipers, whether you're raiding or defending

You know... just typical hypocrite junk.

I don't know what I would call myself. I would probably just attack bases with my friends with a Cycler and a Striker. I won't have too heavy armor on though so I'm still able to move around quickly. I'll probably be in the forest too so I don't have to worry about snipers. I guess you could call me a... I really don't know what you would call me...

I plan on being a pilot. 100% spending every last effort to fly. I play(ed) BF1942. The only part of that game I enjoy is being airborne, on a good serve,r I can spend all map in one A/C and have the top kills. I love it.

PS Snipers are a very SMALL potion of the US army. FYI.

well the bolt driver as I understand isn't a lead shooting gun...it sounds more like an energy type of gun (could be wrong) and most often energy weapons will have a pretty bright flash with a pretty bright projectile...The bolt driver's projectile should for a brief moment point the sniper out.

#1 Hotshot fighter pilot.

Secondary, I would love to play a stealthy anti personell fighter who dabbles in recon/ hacker skills.

That might change when we see how effective the weapons and different abilities are.

Yea flying is my #1 interest. But covert operations are appealing as well

Sniper all the way.
As for those who want to fly around in a sketer: They have No armor, 1 Reaver > 4 sketers i would say, and its proably a good bet that a good aim with a high dmg weapon could toast a sketer, i myself will of course fly a sketer, but only to get around, trying to dogfight in one or do strafing against, say 4 guys, one with a cycler, would be crazy (well not if your dogfighting another sketer i guess) but even the galaxys point defense chain guns would proably tear up o of the cute little jets before it even hurt the lug. just my thoughts.

Well second to the MAX, being a Tank driver sounds like fun to me. I mean flying and all that would be great, shreeking around the skies laying down covering fire, slamming into the ground 3 seconds after take off.......

Thanks, but if I'm driving were gonna stay on the ground

I know I may sound like some sort of nutcase, but...

I think I'll try playing the game before I pre-select what I'll be exactly.

::looks at all the people staring at him::

Let me explain... I see that there will be a lot of snipers. Now, I hate making assumptions based on other games, but let's take T2 as an example. T2 bases require sensor networks to be effective.

I'm assuming the sensor system works similarly (And from what I've read about the stealth suit, it does), so all you snipers will need sensor coverage.

Barring that, I'm gonna be a hacker, my friend and I are gonna be the Terran Republic LoJack Team :-)
