I do still agree that the sniper should have a back up weapon, side arm or MP5 PDW (Smaller version of the MP5, called the Personal Defence Weapon) but to compensate this increase in arms, how about losing those damn smoke nades.

I say another weapon for the sniper is in order as when your moving positions you are defenceless as the reload time for the M24 is totaly inaccurate. I have used the M24 and the M4 sniper varients. and i can get maybe 3, 5 round reloads in the time it takes to reload on this game. Cause lets be honest in a fire fight, screw the One shot one kill stuff, you'll be banging of those rounds faster than you breathe. If not to kill them but to provide harrasing fire for you comrades in arms.

I say next patch give us (and other respected snipers umong the AA community) the chance to defend our selves in close quaters when the shit hits the fan. (and hope full fills to wards the ememy doing more damage than a smoke nade :-) )

Come on Snipers who wants a Side arm

no, its not planned, they wont even consider it. i dont see any reason to do it anyway, when you can just pick up a m16 or something somewhere...

I think everyone should be armed with a Bretta 9mm along with their regular weapon. PDW is way to good for a sidearm!!!

There is no need at all, it is not that often that you get shot in the back and also in real life the Berretta is stopped by all military and law enforcement body armor. The game is supposed to be an accurate represetation of real life so you should just use realistic tactics and have someone cover you with an M-16, a spotter. That is what i do and whenever it happens i have yet to get shot in the back.

The devs have said it time and time again... there will be NO sidearms in the games at all. Dev Bacchus has said that he would die before sidearms became availible in the game. He said something about turning the game into counter strike and he didnt want that. So quit whining about it and start playing like a team. Have an m16 guy with you or have fireteam leaders or staff sargent with you. They have binocs to spot so that would help.

My point exactly, sidearms aren't realistic so they shouldn't and aren't going to be included.

Yea.. but also look at it this way... if you really are a sniper... The only reason you would need to use sidearm is if you were stupid enough to let an enemy sneak up on you. Snipers are supposed to be one shot one kill. From a distance. And usually the sniper's spotter would be armed with a rifle. So a sidearm would be useless. Also.. if you are a sniper.... PICK UP A WEAPON OFF THE GROUND!! Wouldnt that make sense. Not making the programers have to come up with new code for one or two weapons that are going to get you killed anyways... If you actually sit down and thing about it.. which weapon do you think you would want in a fire fight against a 203 or a 249:

a-9mm pistol

or

b-m16

I know I would want an m16. Yes... In the real world, theres probably a 1 in 100 chance that a sniper MIGHT actually use his sidearm(which ALL service people have when in combat situations if my memory serves me correct) in combat. So get off the sidearm soapbox and just accept the fact that in America's Army there will NEVER be sidearms for snipers.
