Well, there's always Overkill in using a shotgun or SMG for closer range engagements and the Five Seven is pretty good. The Beer gun's pretty good....
I was thinking of using overkill with the DSR-50 and the R870. I just haven't tried it yet.
Sniping is hard in general.
It's not though is it?
I'm average at best with a 1.2 TDM KD, so if something is hard to use then I will not do very well with it at all, Riot Shield, Crossbow, etcetera are hard to use and do well with.
Snipers on the other hand because I actually use them properly I have 3 out of 4 of them in my top 5 kd guns with the XPR 1st and DSR 3rd.
1 hit kill Snipers are NOT hard to use at all if you use them correctly, I'm living proof of that.
Agree with you Widow, the first sniper rifle is a bit of fun.
I like the SVU too, great for HC, but I do prefer the bolts.
Spamming a sniper just feels pretty n00by to me.
I think they need to make a few really large maps. I bet everyone will be surprised how small they feel since the game pace has sped up so much.
I was hoping that downhill would be the size of discovery, but its actually really tiny. Every map so far is very small or medium sized. there are no hazards, berlin walls, cracked, or dicovery's. I misst those big maps.
son of a...now i wanna go play BLOPS 1. loved sniping on discovery.
When people actually aim down the scope and snipe as sniper rifles are supposed to be used, there's no problem really. It irritates me though when I'm running (or walking) around and suddenly a sniper pulls up from a dead sprint and OHK's me. It's frustrating but it's not impossible to counter. If they miss the first shot they're usually done.
Another issue is the way people use semi auto snipers. I don't understand the point of putting in the SVU without a significant amount of recoil. Even the XPR (I think) has more recoil, and isn't spammed so much. But when you hear 5 sniper shots go off in 2-3 seconds, it's not even being used as a sniper rifle. That kind of weapon is just a crutch for people that can't snipe properly, and it doesn't teach them how to snipe either. If they won't take out semi auto snipers and just leave bolt action ones then at least put more weapons like the XPR that can be used without spraying.
All I play is TDM, and I dont QS. Used to love the old CODs where you could have sniping wars.
