Is it just me or is the M24 total and utter crap compared to the other rifles? The SVD can fire its entire clip in the time it takes for the M24 to fire ONE shot! And accurately too! And the bonus of not having to take your eye away from the sight is fantastic as well! So here is my question....does the M24 unbalance sniping for the Americans? As for the M95, I have seen skill videos featuring it, but, aside from the vehicle-killing nonsense, it just doesn't have enough of a difference between the M24
the M24 is the most accurate gun in the whole game u just suck at shooting it.
That, and a majority of those so called "skill videos" are rigged and set up. I needn't mention the controversy an M95 killing everything in one shot video brought up, before people realized it was all rigged.
The#1Spotthe M24 is the most accurate gun in the whole game u just suck at shooting it.
Excuse me? Accuracy means nothing at 1 shot per second, when it takes 2 shots to kill! And I wish people would stop saying that I suck when I bring up valid points.
Besides, the M95 is a 50 caliber weapon, it should tear you in half in one shot, not knock you down to two bars. If they are gonna reduce the accuracy, they should give you something besides the hope of shooting dudes out of cockpits.
The m24 is NOT the most accurate and even if it were the fact that you have to take your eye away from the sight every time you shoot it would negate that (you get shot while reloading/rechambering a round). I hardly ever get killed by an m24, i think it's luck when i do. I personally hate the sniper class in BF2, but the m24 is crap compared to the SVD. The real problem with the sniper rifles is that there is no range adjustment for the sights, so you just have to either guess or play sniper all the time to be able to accurately adjust for drop over distance. Being a sniper is boring anyway.:o
:eek:I cant believe what i'm hearing! The M24 is the best sniper rifle in the game (so far)! And if it isn't the most accurate sniper rifle in the game, then which one is? It is very capable of killing with one shot....when it's a head shot (remember that term?). And as for hardly ever getting killed by a M24, then anybody on whatever server you play on must hardly ever pick the sniper class to play with. In fact, maps such as, well, any urban map almost require you to use them(24/7 Karkand all day baby) if you play such maps, or even wake island. But anyway just the fact that you said that you like the SVD because you can let off a great deal more shots in the time the M24 gets one off leads me to beleive that you are not really a headshot type sniper. But go back and choose the M24 and try to get headshots. Then you will see the difference. :nodding:
Maybe try a mod like MERCS 6. Sniping is sniping, it involves planning and patients ( LOL ). If you arent sure that you are going to kill with one shot ... dont shoot. The M24 in MERCS rocks ( your scope view ISNT interrupted in bettween shots and a very mild recoil )
ACtually I feel that the M24 is far superior to the SVD. TO me accuracy is everything in my rifle. I want a gun that hits exactly where I point it. I love it because i enjoy watching the vodniks come up and the guy gets into the gunners seat thinks hes smart and then i blow his head away through an inch gap and laugh my ass of at how stupid he was. I actually complain that the M24 wasnt the unlock weapon. I would prefer to have acess to a superior accuracy weapon any time I want it rather then getting some semi accurate high powered gun.
THe best is when youve got an M24 and some SVD guy thinks hes slick and is gonna snipe you. you may not be able to pull off the shots as fast but all you need is for the guy to stop moving for that split second he needs to get off his shot and hes dead instantly.
I think snipers are like 1 of the best classes in all of bf2 i always get kills with the m24 (plus in the patch they said they were tweaking the sniper, assault and support class) its extremely accurate i recon. the m95 doesnt take of 2 bars maybe u just didnt hit any1 iwhen u get a headshot with it they always die and there lucky 2 get away with a body shot (psyichic can i change ma sig 2 urs plz i just realised mine is wrong)
If you cant hit anything and u have no skill just uninstall bf2 and things should work out and life will be better :D
