Ok this is a rant. I am sick of being treated second rate because i'am a sniper. I have big kicked off serveral servers because "snipeing" was "lame" or "not allowed." Also the people who take the lead and start acting like there god and the rest of the team are there personal servents **** me off. I don't know how many times people have ordered me to do stuff as a sniper and then i'am called a "coward" or something and they shoot me a few times as they run by.

Some points:

#1 If you see a sniper,LTS,drop some ammo on him. Even if he doesn't danke/thankyou (Since hes problary shooting) He NEEDS the ammo. Sharpshooters are worse off then medics because that two clips of Mauser ammo is rendered competely useless vs. ANYTHING,unless it's a few feet away,so if a sniper is hideing,you run by,DROP AMMO(Also drop ammo for medics,lts)

#2 Medics-Drop packs on snipers so they can soak them up. I find most often if i'am beaten in a sniper war vs some other sniper,it WILL take a while to get back in postion since the other sniper is now in postion and he can watch me as i move to my postion(since he'll be checking it) and nail me on the way. Even if i go to a new area most likely he'll see me,since any point worth snipeing a sniper with brains will cover to make sure no other sniper can place a shell through thier brain.

#3 DO NOT BLOCK THE SNIPER IN! God,i do not know how many times i have been sitting there and seeing the panzer/sniper fire and trying to move but the lt/medic is blocking my escape.If i took the time to hit r>4>3 for "move" we'd both be dead anyway(Roger wilco may help this but it's still preicous seconds to say MOVE). So i must try to jump/get around you while you are not understanding and still droppin' ammo/health.::mad::

#4 If your a sniper,DO NOT sit near some other sniper. It creates a panzer magnet since now the other team sees you sitting just out of cover and they fire...BOOOOOOOOM (specially if its a panzer) there goes YOU and ME,and more if it's more then one sniper sitting near the sniper allready there.(I've seen hills with five snipers on them in tram,for example,and they all die by someone with anything)

#5 :( If you are killed by a sniper in a tk and if he sorrys,please excuse the complaint. Mostly anyone who snipes has brains and it was a simple matter of you running in front of there shot wich they had allready taken.

I also have my kills expolited.....on marketgarden i had one guy Literallity sit and wait for my mauser to go off then run out and kill whoever i had been shooting at with his venom.

Well,thats my rant,excuse the typos and it will be longer and make more sense and have no run ons some day.

Woohoo, its been a while since we have had an actuall rant. I personally don't hate snipers, and very rarely do I see people complain about them, but in their own defense you have to remember a few things.

First, what ever you are, be a team player. At certain stages of certain maps ie. Beach, when the wall has been breached, a sniper is useless. I have seen players contine to snipe, which does not help the team get the objective. Also, check the scores periodically throughout the game. Make sure you have a good amount of both lts and medics. If not, switch. It is important to be whatever class will help the team.

Second, Under no circumstances, never, ever, ever, ever, claim to be worse off than a medic. Your sniper rifle has enough ammo to kill 10 players (if you are a bad shot). A medic has 32 shots, even if all he gets are headshots, and never a single miss, thats only 9 players. More likely 2. Granted you suck at close range, more ammo isn't going to help that. I'm not saying you don't need ammo, and yes LTs should give anyone who asks ammo, but medics are top priority.

I usually play a medic, and I am the first to drop health, even when its not needed by snipers, I know you get hit, you need that health.

Being blocked is always a problem. For any class. One of these days people will learn. I saw a Panzer in beach, go out from the flag spawn room, stop in the doorway, pull out a pz, then fire who knows where while the rest of us are yelling trying to get to the objective.

Last, TK again is another issue that gets all of us. Everyone at some point has accidently killed their own teammate. People should never file a complaint unless thry know the person is a TK.

I've noticed as of late that a lot of people are getting better at not filing a complaint when they are tk'd. When I play the Beach and I'm Axis, I keep tossing canister's over the wall, not aware that 3-4 guys on my side have jumped the wall already, sooooo.. when I was playing, I would accidently tk someone(s) on the other side of the wall and quickly hit v45, yet, they couldn't hit F1 fast enough to file against me. Now, I rarely get filed, except the other day, when I planted a 2nd dynamite at the wall on the beach about 5 secs after the 1st one, after the first dyno exploded, some guy on my side (I was ally) stood literally on top of my dynamite and waited for it to exploded and filed ASAP! I **NEVER** file against anyone unless they TK 100% on purpose.

I assure you that in anything but a long-distance firefight a sniper is worse off then a medic. A good medic will have learned to duck and headshot. A sniper will have to use his luger/colt and problary since the other guy has more health,and he'll miss to, he'll have to switch to the mauser and at that point he's dead.

Also,once the wall is done snipers are not useless. A lot of times i climb the ladder in front of the wall,duck down on the small ledge to it's side before you actually climb on the base. Most people don't expect this and i can snipe axis comeing out the radio room onto the walkway and form the backstaircase, wich, if you act correctly is quite effective. Also i find,when people are spawncamping(on the roof of forward bunker or above trenches) I'am backup agasnit this in this postion.I have also jumped onto the table along the backwall in front of the warroom and sniped up to four axis since there heads only show. Eventually someone catches on to where i am and i'll switch to lt and drop ammo at spawn before going lone wolf.

This rant was basically cause i was *sick* of people going for other classes instead of the sniper,and allowing the sniper to die(in case of medics),or be killed or be useless without ammo. A lot of people tend to find it out of thereway to come back to my postion form the front lines for some reason.

snipers arnt worse off.....u just need to be good at them...if u find a good spot u can get kills and u can follow at the end of the pack and kill ppl....also if ur a good sniper u should know that sniping upclose is very powerful....so if someone is running at u or went past u...dont use pistol, bring out ur rifle and one good shot......even tho it seems weird chargin can be good at times....hiding at one spot is ofcourse a deathtrap cuz ppl will know ur there and kill you....but snipers arnt worse...medics with one clip have to decide whether to chase down the gay lt that doesnt turn around or help the 2 soilders that got killed by a panzer shell explosion.....snipers run and get ammo if they can and kill alot of ppl....if u think its worse off then u shouldnt be sniper cuz u dont know what ur doin...medics run threw the battlefeild and become everyones target while the sniper can hide in a corner or in a building and shoot ppl.....medics dont have it easy cuz u cant kill ppl as much as u would wish too....u usually retreat alot, same as snipers but usually snipers dont retreat if they are good enuf...they will kill all opposition...

Since we are using beach as an example here, once the wall is down, it is essential to get every available team member together to make a run for the objective. Allies have a huge disadvantage here, every team mate helps

Yes, the point of the sniper is finding a spot or following your team's forward movement,don't see anything to aruge about here.....As for useing one good shot ,yes the rifle upclose is powerfull,and yes i've done this,but i find on most of the GOOD servers,as soon as i pull out that mauser in closecombat they start jumping in a zigzag motion to evade. I'am pretty swell at snipeing,it was my 2nd sepicalziton after medic. I think we all have mixed feeling about the medic/sniper/lt thing so lets just drop it.(The point i was trying to make seems to be one of options,and to gnaget: one of the things about lts>more pistol ammo)

Also a sniper can be good for going for docs,like i said....I don't know how many times i've sniped that one or two people in the basement who had flamers on allies,wich usally ends in them killing me with the flamer and me shooting them down. Plus,on the side ledge i've sniped the guys chaseing the 'doc man' in the back,wich only increases our chance of winning. I think this is optional to all to,have a support on getting docs or have everyone actually at docs.

I personally would like to see 2 LT, 4 Med, 1 PZer going for the docs together. I can't imagine you can get too many people. there are 4 major camping spots in the war room, all out of view of the hallway.

Gnaget,true,but everyone knows those spots by now and there counterable. Lol...panzer. I like dropping out of the vents,hitting fire halfway down then fireing and takeing all in warroom while the lts drop down and take the one guy who gets me in the little ducts room and steal the docs:)
