In the flat deserts of this first release all that seems to be happening is some one gets the sniper kit then goes and prones somewhere and rapes the server.
you cant get close, since he will 1 shot you,
even if your a scout and you scope him with your binocs you cant shoot him because he is too far away.
cant kill him in a tank because then your a big fat blow me up sign for enemy tanks and planes.
unless he screws up he is pretty much going to camp the crap out of you.
so, I propose that on desert maps where there is not cover at all, all snipers be removed or make it unlimited (not realistic)
Its all well and good having them in other theatres where you can, you know, actually hide behind trees and stuff, just in the desert there is what 300m of open sand between flags?
b00m head-shot any one?
sorry to bring dredge this up but its a little ridiculous and with the patch that supposedly coming out regarding CTDs I was wonder if there could be a temp fix until we get Normandy.
You might very well think that

Never encountered this myself.
I never had a problem with enemy snipers on pubbies... usually I didn´t even notice them, they just don´t make enough kills.

Same here. As a matter of fact I have not got taken down by a scoped rifle yet in FH2.
A sniper that rapes the mains isn't really useful to his team anyways. If I ever see someone sniping only to add more kills to his score at the end of the map, I usually don't even waste my time looking for him. As long a he is doing that he is only removing one player from the other team per shot, no vehics, or armour. And he is giving his team a player disadvantage.
Competant snipers for the most part keep people off the arty, and mostly spot for their team.
The only time a sniper should piss you off for the most part is if you are manning arty or an MG. Apart from that they might get you once or twice but their main goal is to spot and let the rest of the team take the base.
If they camp a main don't bother with them, they are doing more damage to their team then yours.
So if you notice the other team took your base too easily for what you though the chances are a sniper had been watching you for a while before you lost the base and has ensured there was no armour, Arty or mgs sitting around ready to take out the attackers. If it seems tanks are going around the mines you just put down chances are a sniper watched you place them.
So the difference between a good sniper and a newbie with a scope, is that the newbie gets people pissed off at them, and a good sniper gets people pissed off at the effectiveness of the team.
About the tanks being "big fat blow me up signs", well that they are, and so is every other thing in the desert. It's a matter of spotting and shooting the enemy first.
@Rothwell Can´t say that about me, but it happens not very often. The only sniper I can remember was a german guy at WAW-Tournament who nailed us down in Bardia, but that was nothing a grenade couldn`t have solve.
All your base are belong to FH

I think that sniper has harder time on the desert instead of normandy. If you spot him which is quite simple he is good as dead. At least in my case.

some jobs just make you become cynical.
