The Sniper Debate - Once and for All!!!


I'm sick of hearing the old debate about how powerful sniper rifles should be on other forums, often with unrelated subjects, so I created this poll to end the debate once and for all.

I hope sniper rifles do squat to MAX units. Think about it. MAX IFVs (well, that is what a MAX is, a one man infantry fighting vehicle, hehe) do not have much in terms of long range weaponry. And any rockets or other such stuff could be easily avoided by the time they impact.

The majority isn't always right. If I walked into a Special Ed class and asked the students how to resolve the Iraq - United States problem, the answer the majority would give me would not necessarily be the best course of action. Not to imply anything about the people of this forum, though. It's just an analogy to illustrate how the majority is very capable of not having a clue.

Thankyou Warborn for yet another antiforum post. I think sniper rifles will be fine as long as they don't have static cross hairs. I think the damage sounds right, tough for a one shot kill on anything, and they are single action so you can't speed kill.

Please. The original poster said "The Sniper Debate -- Once and For all", and then added "... I created this poll to end the debate once and for all.", when all he's doing is starting yet another sniper discussion. I was only saying that you can't end something simply by finding out which side of the argument is the majority. This poll isn't fact based off of personal experience-- it's the epitome of conjecture.

I voted 1kill on head shot on lighter armors.

Ideal situation in my opinion would be very hard to get headshots that kill anything less than med armor in 1 hit. It would mean the sniper rifle is deadly but only if skilled, like in RL.
