This makes me want to write a theory guide on sniping. I feel as though knowing the mechanics of the game isn't good enough :P
I guess the point is, I am an arrogant asshole that isn't impressed by M98 point and shoots or 1500m headshots that took 58 shots as I am how the sniper thinks.
There are a few certain unamed individuals around that -hint hint- need to move around a bit more and not be so obvious.
Also, range finding. Granted DICE fails horribly at properly implimenting the reticules, you can still work out a system with theirs.
In the real world proper scopes contain everything you need to gauge and adjust for range without dialing for elevation and windage.
I'd love to see you write an article on sniping and factor in things like route patterns enemies take when being sniped at. Bullet leading and lagging depending on whether you're moving or the enemy is moving. Trajectory prediction. The mindset of sniping with a 6x scope vs a 12x scope. I firmly believe that the recon class it the most artful and versatile when used by someone who treats the game as real life. Moving cautiously from cover to cover, relocating after every shot, using brush and foliage to conceal location, etc. Me writing the mini article above was just a foot in the door. I'd love to see some follow ups.
I could produce novels on this. But I'll tackle it in little chapters.
I had no idea:eek: How do you trigger it?
Whatever your primary fire button is mapped to. That simple
I'd like to experiment with this tonight when I get home. Sadly that will be about 4:00am your time.
Wild... I didnt know it had an EMP either.
I have learned you with juicy informations.
Nice write up Ghost.
I am sure most of you guys all ready know this but if you are a recon noob like me here you go. I was reading on a forum and someone was talking about using soflams. He was talking about setting them up and using them to watch your back like a surveillance camera.
Anyways just thought I would throw that out there and hope it helps someone.
