Lightbulb the whole sniper issue.. again...


snipers (in squads or alone) could be delt with by patrols. think about what would happen if a few soldiers on basilisks (holstering small arms & close range wepons) could do to an equal ammount of bolt-driver carrying snipers. the snipers would be forced to use their sidearms... that is nothing compared to a flechette rifel or mini-chaingun. mosquitos would also be extremely useful. the scaringly large ammount of snipers to be, will be easily detered from venturing too far into enemy territory.

Where's Hamma and all his horse pics when you need him? The sniper thing has been debated to death and beyond cause people keep draging it out of the grave where it should stay.

There are a lot of existing threads on snipers. Visit one of them before creating a new one.

I dunno. Just because the topic consists of the word sniper dosn't mean that every thing to talk about with regard sniping has been talked about. And, lets just assume everything about the sniper had been talked about, that dosn't mean that everyone has read every sniper post made or even knows about every sniper post made. So all who have something more to say, carry on.
If its a question thats been asked and awnsered already then since so many know the sniper issue inside out, (or so it seems), then it should be easy enough to awnser.

In response to skin. Theres a few things you need to consider. for one they may easily be sniped from their basilisks while they are atempting to get close enough to shoot the snipers. In which case you'd need to either hope they have bad aim or do some fancy zigzagging as you go. Only other way I see is to know which way they're faceing and come around behind them so as to take them by surprise.

SO post under a sniper thread - where people who are discussing snipers can talk about it. God, I'm going to start another beta thread now.

Come on, guys, give him a break.

I just don't u nderstand this mindset - there's a lot of sniper threads, and a lot of people have voiced their opinion on the topic, but that doesn't mean that everyone has had a say-so, and it doesn't mean that every aspect of sniping has been discussed.

If you don't have anything to add, just stay outta the thread. I agree, the initial poster should've just added on to an existing thread, but what's the deal with everyone coming into this thread just to whine that someone wants to talk about snipers again? If you don't want to hear about it, <B>don't bloody read it!</B>

It isn't hard to use a sniper rifle up close at all if you ask me. I do it all the time in T2.

Yeah but, it will eventualy get buried like the rest of the threads and some people don't care to look through the archives to find an answer or if they're noobs they don't know the site well enough to look. Or if they did then its ok to post a new thread if they didn't see what it is they are looking for.
