BF2 has alot of potential for sniping, tons of cover and concealment, realtime cammo, large enough maps, and bullet drop. Other games sucked with their sniping. FH2 sniping suggestions: 1. Sniper should once again be a spawnable kit. ( I hate the way one guy always hogs the lone sniper kit). To keep it from being over used, though, it should be an unlockable weapon. 2. I've heard that it's possible to customize some of the features of the appearance of a soldier. It would be cool if FH could figure out a way to customize the cammo used. For example I could draw my own cammo color/pattern up in photoshop import it to BF2 and then I'll be able to blend with my favorite sniping spot. 3. Snipers are issued: 4x Scoped rifle, Pistol, Knife, and 8x power binoculars.

You need to hold up. FH2 is a long way away.

Firstly, no spawnable snipers. No way. They were RARE dammit. No one even uses sniper kits in FH1. There's no reason to make them spawnable at all.

No unlocking stuff - this is a WW2 realism mod, not a Frag-n-win FPS game. Snipers must remain as they are: Pickup kits. Unlockables in general are a bad idea, because they reward rambo-style killers.

No custom sniper skins. A.) Not possible. B.) BAD IDEA. You just KNOW you will see people walking around with porn on their uniform. Its almost inevitable.

As for the issued equipment, that sounds like one nation's sniper loadout. They were all different you know. Great Brittain only had a 2.5x scope on most Enfields. USSR had many different scopes in service. I agree about the pistol though.

Is it possible to make a different looking Sniper camo for each theatre? One might look sort of silly in a jungle camoflauge on the Russian Steppes in the freezing winter, and one might find themselves turned into swiss cheese by the effect of this. Stupid question now that one thinks about it, as already one has different normal uniforms in different theatres of war. I think that upgradable camoflauge would be great - the master snipers could get far better camoflauge than the noobs, giving more reason to be good with the class.

I do think that the sniper should be given camo though. What about those deployable camo huts in GC? Maybe something like that could be implemented. If anything, at least change the uniform for the sniper. He looks like a typical frontline soldier if he's not holding the sniper rifle. I mean come on.

This is not exactly true. As you may know, in BF2 you can get points for doing various things. As a default you get 2 points for a kill and 4 points for a flag capture. You can also get one point for all sorts of assistance like healing, driving the vehicle, supplying ammunition and so on. Unlocking rewards the best players. Besides, rambo-style killers don't get far in FH unless they're wielding a PPsH.

Pixelaimers are far more deadly than any other type of player, so basically, if FH had an unlockable system, those who sit in the main on the arty would get the best weapons.
