First, let me assure you that I am far form a newbie. I can hit anything with the rifle, as long as I can see it. I have made some amazing pixel shots with the rifle in FH2.

I can't hit anything with the sniper. It doesn't matter which sniper or how close my target may be; I will surely miss. I have tried distant targets, medium targets and close targets. I have tried standing, crouching, proning and jumping. I have waited 4 seconds before I took the shot, and yet nothing works. There have been times when I waited till the enemy took up 1/2 my scope and was 50 yards away! I still can't hit him!

Could someone explain to me how to use the sniper and if not, promise that it will be fixed in the next patch.

If you can hit as far as you can see... why using the sniper if the regular rifle is superior in your hands?

He was complaing about this today in a pubbie server, I don't know what to tell you, I hit a lot of stuff I aim at with the sniper rifle, I may miss once in a while, but it usually hits where I aim.

Meh, get up high, like when Im on tower in Mersa Mutruh or super charge, you pretty much point and aim at anything below you and it's gone. Even Panzer 4's!

Really? I've tried compensating for it, but it still doesn't work. Why would the sniper have such huge bullet drop if the rifle only has a small bullet drop? I don't see how a scope would make the bullet fall faster.

I guess I just want it to work right, even if I don't use it.

I thought the same. But when I use it I must lead vertically, a lot.

The bigger bullet drop of the sniper rifles appears to be an illusion. The big zoom makes little inaccuracies appear huge but from a croaching position it is possible to hit a player over reasonably long distance when aiming for the chest. The german sight however is slightly different, hear you have to aim slightly above the target but that seems to be a problem with the sights, not with the rifle.
