I agree with vonstryker, the "shoot from the hip" is exactly what your doin with the sniper rifle when ur not zoomed.
I have an idea... The Scout should have a detachable scope. Like in RtR how the Engineer can attach a bayonet and remove it with one button.
The Scout's kit would look like this: [list=1] Knife Pistol/ Sidearm Scoped Rifle (default) 1 or 2 Grenades Attach/ Remove Scope [/list=1]
i didnt read the whole thread just the original post. but id say NO! because sniper rifle is for sniping not close range, u deserve to die if u use it close range. with a crosshair it would be too deadly from close range.
I like all those 'if you get too close you deserve to die' answers...sheesh have you ever heard of sneaking up on someone and what? do you magically spawn in the middle of nowhere so you don't have to worry about close combat.. c'mon you still need to get to your sniping spot. S
Maybe you should read the thread before yo u posy anithing, (Hint, hint.)
A sniper riffle, Especialy in WWII is a standard rifle, with a scope, (If you's put the scope on a Garand, that would be a sniper Garand, Probs with the clip though.)
Aiming should be harder, when not scoped, but there should be a X-hair, bacause even when you are shooting from the hip, you do have a feel as to where you are aiming.
Like I said, it is a standard rifle, with a scope attached.
yeah i know what it is that being a standard rilfe with a scope, but i would like to stress ur a feel of were ur aiming. and w/o a crosshair in the game you should also have a idea, if fact a good idea of where your aiming. practice shooting while not zoomed in and you'll soon be able to take out people close range. i dont think they should put crosshairs but i dont really care i hate sniping anyway. sniping is too over used theres always way more snipers than there should be and putting crosshairs might make more snipers.
There are like 3 scouts total in most games. All anyone is is Assault Assault Assault. You can't do anything with Assault but attack so forget teamwork unless the whole team is gonna protect me when I'm usually the only engy or med.
im usaually eng, ass, med, and sometimes antitank. a lot of times theres a lot of snipers.
Simple, its fine the way it is in order to maintain balance in the game. If a sniper can also kill at shorter distances using the crosshair like the engineer that would make him too powerful. Just use the pistol or keep your distance. And if you want to have a crosshair per se just play the engineer. You can't have both lads, learn to live with it.
Some things in life are so easy.
I want to be a sniper but hate the rifle up close, so why can't I carry another mg strapped to my back and swap them over when i need to, and also medic packs so I can heal myself cause I am always so far from the medic/engineer, and mines would be handy too, when I'm crawling about in out of the way places I sometimes spot tanks sneaking about, guess I better carry some expacks too just in case, hmmm, and maybe in desert combat I could have binocs to call artillery, they're not very heavy, I'm sure I could squeeze them in somewhere, just dangle them around my neck, oh and a RPG also, I think I've got some space up back next to the mg, hey maybe we should just scrap the other classes and just let me run (crawl - cause I can't stand up now) around killing ppl :lol:
But seriously guys, you can't have everything, if you have problems being a particular class maybe you should try something differnt for a change!
