I don't get it. I connect the dot on the sniper scope right to the guy's forehead, and when I shoot it misses. I just don't get what I'm doing wrong. Any tips?

Mabey it's because ur standing up and not prone. u get better accuract if u go prone. Besides ur scope moves when ur standing.

If you are playing online, it's probably just mr. lag messin' with ya'. Lead your target just a bit. If you are having the problem in SP, do what Bondfreak said and go prone to help steady your aim. Also, if you keep the button pressed when you shoot, your scope view will stay open and you can see why your missing.

I love sniping and as with other games that include sniper rifles, I have gotten quite deadly with it. :mepimp:

I have been having the same problem- lying prone- aiming for a guys head from like 20 yrds away (good hiding places usually) and it doesn't get 'em- i see where it hit- and they sure did get hurt- just didn't go down :(

U n00bs :rolleyes: I'm a pr0 and I know what your n00b problem is: If u just move your croshair fast to your enemy and then fire, the bullet won't hit hit (this isn't CS) U have to aim at your target for at least 2 seconds, after 2 sec. of almoast no moveing of the croshair, the bullet will hit right where u want it to.:smokin:

BTW: It is possible to kill a guy that's running (I've done it a thousand times) The farther away he is the longer before him u gotta shoot. I've practised this skill alot on the bots. Once I sniped a (real) guy from about 75 meters away :D

so lemme get this straight- you think i'm a noob to the game eh...? ok as I have been playing since the MP demo came out- and have gotten to the point that I am really good at what i do (which is mainly support roles- I'm good with artillary and sneaking around all over the place and generally being a annoyance to the foe... However I still can't snipe properly- I do wait on a foes head- heck I have as i said tried from very close ranges and definatly waited until the weapon is steady- it just seems that they will not die even when hit for me... its kinda annoying :furious:

LOL I'm no n00b just because I can't snipe. I am real handy with the automatic. Yeah sure some people just blow out all the ammo, but I make sure EVERY bullet goes to good use.

Another tip... ever heard of gravity... :D :D :D....

When your tarket is not within... well 60 feet or something... you have to aim higher... otherwise you'll hit him in the torso... :agreed: :agreed: :agreed:
