I think the scope jump is just fine, they just handled it wrong. If you notice, when the sniper sways back and forth while you're holding still, your screen doesn't move, the image in the scope sways across the screen. The scoping-in randomization should be handled in the same way. It shouldn't affect where you are looking, just where on the screen the scope appears when you look through it. It should randomly appear somewhere on the screen and then migrate toward the center.

Yea, I disagree with changing the Sniper. This is supposed to be an arcade styled game not realistic. This game is basically Quake with old guns haha, thats how all the games are. If you want something diff. you are going to have to play BF1942, I say put the snipers back how they were.

"Anyone complaining is probably sad they can't use their noob cannon. I was so tired of the sniper wars on pavlov, hurtgen, rocket, and brecourt. Now it's nice to be able to have a little bit more of a WWII experience."

Ok i personally have gotten better at sniping with this "NEW" rifle... however, why couldn't they have modified the rifle in SP as well? Its a real put off, with the sway difference, and the reload factor for both.

The more we get used to this new addition the better at it we become...

xvleeOK so the only level I ever spawn with a sniper rifle on is powcamp. Just updated the game, and was playing the Chateu map, picked up some dead guy's sniper rifle and went to use it.... its totally messed up now! To start with it takes like 3 times longer to put the scope up to the eye, now fair enough they wanted to make it a harder weapon to use but now its unbearably slow to the point of having taken some realism away. And, I find, after I wait to zoom, the sight is not actually looking at whatever it was i was trying to zoom in on, its outta focus to the point that whatever i'm trying to zoom in on isnt in the view! Is this what the patch intended, or have they accidently messed up? Maybe i'll get used to it and love it, but atm this truly sucks!

i got used to it, it is actually pretty cool, so i was wrong...

This game isn't realistic, that's more Red October's job (WWII mod for UT2003). However, it just ain't fun with the previously overbearing snipers. Good job with 1.2. Limiting snipers to 1 per team would be over the top, but my idea of the next step :p
