I finally try again and succeed yesterday on Falaise Pocket

but it's still a real piece of shit

the recoil of semiauto rifles f**ks up your aim, that's why bolt action rifles are better for sniping

Cadyshack;3978590That K98 scope looks like it would be supplied to all troops, as the scope doesn't look that high powered (but certainly better than ironsights).

Not exactly, only Snipers, Marksmans/Sharpshooters, (comperable to a Sniper but normally speaking didnt receive any training and was attached to a squad) and such would receive scopes. Normal infantry wouldnt receive scopes as it would be far too expensive, both in terms of material costs and training costs (a scope requires a certain amount of training for effective usage) to do such a thing. That K98K scope looks like ZF40/41 1.5 power telescope, i could be wrong though.

What scope was the most common among K98 wielding snipers? The short one featured here or the long one we usually see (assuming there weren't several kinds)?

The long one that you usually see. Thats what all the evidence seems to be pointing at so far after searching for more information regarding this on the various WW2 forums.

Cadyshack;3978590 And has anyone been able to figure out the M1 Garand sniper in FH.7? I can't seem to hit anything from much farther than 3/4 the distance I can do with the normal garand.

Hells yeah, I'm ace with that thing! Soooo awesome....

Ive been able to use it pretty well on Falaise once or twice. I remember using it, and missing a few times unexplicably, but otherwise it was fine.

But then I was using it at medium ranges with some margin for error...

Actually, thats the STG44 with the Vampir device which was also used as a sniper rifle. There's also the STG44 with the ZF41 scope which was something quite commonly used by Sharpshooters but practicly speaking rarely if ever used by Snipers. See clicky. Then there's the Gewehr 33/40. Used by the Gebirgsj├Ągers as a normal and as a sniper rifle. See clicky. For that matter its kind of strange that we have the Garand M1C/D sniper rifle in FH. It was extremely rare and its performance was rather poor compared with bolt action rifles. AFAIK, no Garand M1C/D sniper rifle was used in Western Europe.

The scope of the K98 in the first picture is to small i think...
