Is it me or is it near impossible to snipe long distance in DC? I'm prone with no wave I'm leading a target and I miss, no big deal so I aim ahead and still miss. I can see the bullet hitting the sand but it's waay off. It's like 10 feet from the target. It seems like there's a 1 second delay between the time you fire and the time the bullet hits the target but when I try to compensate I still get no affect. Now I know semi auto rifles aren't as accurate as bolt action rifles but DC isn't exactly going for realism. To all you uber 1337 snipers, what's the secret?

dude... u should know that the FPS portion of bf1942 is totaly shit, the worst ive ever seen to be exact, sniper rifles cant really snipe unless ur very close to ur enemy and it still takes at LEAST 2 shot, and im talking HEAD shots... very sad huh... and yes this goes for DC and the other mods...

Spidey are you talking about online or SP games. Online you have to lead the target and also adjust for bullet lag caused by the server. THats the extra delay your getting i would bet. Its even more noticeable when flying planes and firing rockets. You can watch the rocket hit but yet it does nothing. The server is already past you so you have to aim even further ahead. Its all bout the time it takes for your computer to report what has happend and if the server has already past you by.

There is a significant difference in sniping from vanilla and sniping from DC. In Vanilla I can hit a target online without trouble, but in DC it seems like every 20th shot hits lol.

Try and find the more powerfull sniper rifle you will normally find it in your main base. 1 shot kill perfect aim. the other rifle is rubish.:bows:

Forget about the CAR! It isn't a sniper rifle! If you want to snipe with the CAR try the M-16! It's better I think!

Try using the .50 cal Any hit almost anywhere on the body, torso or head is a 1 shot 1 kill

My only complaint is how dirty the lenses are.

The Barret's accuracy is similar to that of the vanilla sniper rifles and I have no problems with it. The problem lies in the Tabuk/M25 sniper rifles. At mid range they're not that bad, but at far range they seem to be useless.
