I just thought I would say my bit...

Snipers were in ww2 to be annoying, for the most part. They would harass. This is displayed in mods with snipers, or reg bf. They get into position, and fire on targets. All good and fine and realistic, right?

Actually, no. BF and its mods are games. Games people play to have fun. The sniper is a weapon meant to annoy. Why would you include a weapon meant to make people have less fun? I realise you have to have at least some, for realism, but for everyone who says gameplay is most important, this point stands. For people who say realism is just as important, or moreso, you get snipers, just in low quantities.

What some call annoying, others call demoralizing. A good sniper can discourage people by making them avoid certain routes or just leave the game all together. I've done that to people, and I've planned different routes :p

the problem is that when you have a choice, you and half the team would sit there and snipe.... and snipe.... and snipe.... and snipe.... for the entire round.... nothing would ever happen...

In this mod snipers are VERY rare.... you only see one evrey third round or so.... if it was made into a class, evreyone would just be a sniper...

and who says i play games for fun? i play for the experiance.. i play because i want to be a soldier in wwII..

FH has implemented a system where they clan place the "pickup kits", the little things that people drop when they die, onto a map seprate of other classes... this approach has 2 main benifits

1.The amount of snipers can be limited, so the entire team cant be a sniper, and snipers become as rare as they were IRL...

2.They can take snipers out of maps where even one snipers would ruin the gameplay (omaha for example)

check near the tiger spawn on Battle of the bulge, there are 2 kits there, one Sturmgewehr44 and one Gewehr 43 sniper rifle... they spawn there evrey game...

you can't actually be serious about ,"annoy" harass? A hole blown through your face while trying to light a smoke with your buddies would put a serious annoyance in the rest of the group's sleep no? Therefore having a deeper damage then just a general engagement of fire power? Get a life will ya, maybe even talk to a vet who might let you know the harshness of war. I have no problem playing as a sniper or fighting against them. I find it exciting knowing someone might have a beed on you rdy to snuff you out. Snipe,snipe ,snipe, nothing? well you would die then someone would take spawn?I'm not sure if some of you guys should play BF or go back to Pac-man? "Annoy" What a putts. I can't believe you posted that comment for others to read. I'm sure you gained alot of respect

Jebus, I know people like to obsess over what I say, but wasnt expecting this...

and like I said before, why put in something that just subtracts fun? You can use terms like demoralize, but the fact is, the only counter to a good sniper is a good sniper, and thats counter-productive. No one likes to die, but a sniper death is much worse than say a fight where you had a 50/50 chance. Besides, its realistic for less snipers, so my point covers both gameplay and realism.

This is ridiculous. Snipers in THIS game are tactical units. They are meant to take out machinegunner whores or exposed heads on flak guns, and also to take out infantry when they are parading around in the open. Snipers in FH are well-managed, being only accessible by picking up a kit, and therefor are limited in numbers and NOT gay.

If you think they are annoying now, you've got something wrong with you. Most sniper guns are broken and have ridiculously bad accuracy right now, the ones that work aren't even used 90% of the time.
