Allright I had someimprovedments in mind for the sniper kit. Not that the sniper kit isnt allready usefull but I think it lacks a few needed things. I think the sniper could really use a pistol. I dont see why a sniper wouldnt carry a pistol and would be very handy if infantry happen to run up on your position while sniping. At current if a infantry uit discovers you and are close by you either use a knife or try firing at him without scoped and personally I rather not have to take my chances with either if a pistol was available. Another sugestion is camoflage. I dunno if it has been suggested allready but in the dcx mod sniper have a little deployable bushes that they can set out and hide in while sniping. Camoflage would be extreamly handy perhaps a ghillie suit to go with the helm he allready has. If this suggestion has allready been made please forgive me

IMO the breathing effect in scope mode should be lowered or deleted, ATM the sniper rifle is pretty useless compared to the ordinary rifle :uhm:

Most positions where you can pick up a sniper kit at are usually rather far away from the actual fighting IMO. I don't think the Sniper (it's called Scout in the first place, BTW) needs a pistol.

First of all, he's got an effective weapon to pick off enemies at range. Provided he can make use of it, that is.

Second, he should be positioned far from the combat zone anyway. And if the fighting were to take place near the Scout, he should have already moved quite a bit away and there should be friendly troops around to provide cover.

Third, if you get killed as a Scout, well, what's so bad 'bout that? Happens to other classes as well...

Ah, and BTW: the way I see it, the Scout's job is not to end up with 10:2 kills, but to provide arty cams... that's why it's called a Scout, not a Sniper. :nodding:

my ideas:

-give him a pistol -loose that huge radio on the back. i know hes a scout, but no sniper is dum enought to wear that thing. -reduce the breathing effect -increase damage at longer range. i shot a jap 6 times with a springifeld SR from the mountain down at that radar bunker and he didnt die. thats just dumb.

No pistol needed. If someone gets to your back he deserves the kill. And if he is close it isn't that hard to shoot a bullet to his stomach. If you fail you still have your trusty knife. If that fails, you die. And in my opinion that's the way it should be.

Ya, the sniper hasonly a few items to prevent them from being "uber".. in my opinion all sniper kits should be removed from all maps.. especially assualt maps like Omaha. It's just pathetic. Besides, snipers, or "scouts" never are useful in any map. All you do is lie down that hill and snipe whoever is stupid enough to man that stationary MG. And no one spots. And if they do, they pick a crap target, or spot their own position.. the stupidity! What can I say... BF2 is coming up soon anyway!

The problem with sniperkits is that usually they are taken by the ppl who have no idea what predicition is and/or bad connections. And what comes to the efficiency of sniper rifles: they should be as useful as other rifles but have a scope. That's the whole point of the weapon. It's your normal rifle with a scope. A shot to the chest or head should always be a instant kill.

Not usefull?That also sounds very biased to I'll be wary of playing on your maps from here on out since you seem to have a lack of respect for snipers. I have easily made 60+ kills on ohmaha beach sniping as axis and in most any other maps I can get about 10 kills at the min before dying and in some cases not even die. There very effective if put to the correct use Ei sniping the enemy airfield makes the enemy very catious and move more. Also if the sniper is good enoguh people will go out of the way to kill the sniper thus diverting manpower from other area's of the enemy front line. I do agree snipers dont have to and SHOULDNT be on every map. I sniper is great to hinder the enemy because its like an itch that you just cant scratch.

Ah, and BTW: the way I see it, the Scout's job is not to end up with 10:2 kills, but to provide arty cams... that's why it's called a Scout, not a Sniper.

Yeah he should call arty but in FH I think there foremost a sniper than a scout otherwise why limit it if he is just a "scout". Its limited because he is more than a scout Sniperes played very importent roles in the war which some people here dont seem to understand that

Snipers still need camo as well and a pistol.

not all people do that. ive seen some good snipers (yours truly) really mess up an advance. ever been on iwo jima with a SR and killed both gunners in the LVT 75? When they are capping the airfield? snipers can be useful, and taking out mg guys is a VERY important job. these guys should be given a pistol, with maybe just one magazine or 2, just in case.

Then why do scouts/snipers need any improvement?
