dude. first of all, chill man. Dont be all skitzo or something. anyways, on with the question.

1. shooting the head doesnt work sometimes. you could shoot the helmet by accident, which neutralizes all effects. sometimes you shoot the face, but have to shoot again. some weird bug or something i dont kno.

2. youll find out that the sniper isnt like Medal of Honor or Battlefield kinda sniper rifles. first of all, it isnt like 1 shot = 1 kill. if u hit the body, you need like 3 hits to kill. its not very powerful. and some snipers are more powerful than others. the fg42 or w/e the name is is a lot weaker than the real sniper rifle, but fires faster and less recoil. real sniper takes about 40 hp away, wile the fg one takes about 20 each.

3. when scoping (which is only with the real sniper rifle or the fg and by right-clicking... aka not the sten gun), use the rolling ball between the right and left buttons on the mouse to zoom. Only some mice have this, and only the real sniper rifle can zoom.

Hoped that helped

its impossible to get 1shot kills, at least in my experience. u probably hit someone thats low on health or something.

you get one shot kills when the other team doesn't have enough medics...

one head shot = 100

normal HP is 100 with 0-1 medics, as the other team gains medics each class gets more HP. the more medics on the opposing team the less likely you will be able to get one shot kills...

trust me i get them

The sniper rifle on ET took me a while to figure out how it works but it is relitively simple. 1. when you take a shot, the recoil makes it fly upwards, (if you are zoomed out it doesnt make the recoil seem as bad). 2. aim for the head but dont expect to get a head shot if you aim right at it, and it is possible to get head shot kills, mainly its a fluke but aiming at the head. 3. sometimes it does take longer to kill someone that usual, mabe because there is a medic behind them healing them or else they are medics them selves (medics get more hp as they get more xp) 4. i duno what else there is too it, the other sniper rifle (the one that doesnt recoil so much) is easier to use but takes longer to kill someone. c u Dre :agreed:

Look at the weapon stats (from Wolfwenstein 4 Dummies): weapontable.jpg You will do at max. 100HP damage (with a scoped headshot). So when the enemy teams has a medic you will need a least 2 shots for killing someone at full health (all enemy players have 110HP by default with one medic in their team). And to reduce the recoil: zoom all the way out (this helps to set a second shot quickly) and/or get to Covert Ops level 3:

ET Manual - section K.5 Covert OpsCovert Operations Level 3: Breath Control Your mastery of the Sniper's art results in a 50% reduction in both recoil jump and weapon sway with Scoped Weapons.
