I have just came across this term. I am a sniper and was told in a server (which will remain nameless) than if I were to hold out at a uncaptured base and sniped I would be kicked. Is this typical? I though the idea of sniping was the be covert and hit where it does the most damage...

snipers are gay. i consider snipers the pussies of BF. especially if they are camping an uncaptureable flag. take el al for example. In DC some one will sit in the hill to the west of the opposition base and camp the planes which is gay. omaha beach is the only map where i dont care about snipers. if u play sniper on every map then that just means u are a pussy and afraind of close quarters combat

I disagree with the server....but then it is their server and if you play there you should abide by their rules.

Spawncamping at an UN_Capturable flag point is very unfair in my opinon, at least utill your team has all the flags.

But it depends on where you play, some allow it some do not.

But....camping near a Capturable flag......that has not been captured is fine and if a server has a rule that you cannot do it , the obey if you play. As for me...I would go somewhere else.

Any Flag that has not been capture and is capturable is fair game.

Games include sniping for a reason...It's somthing to do if your not partial o "head on" assaults, I personaly like sniping in games, Although i do dispise doing it on a spawn.

Why the name calling KOOL?, If you don't want to be sniped, pay attention when you come charging into a flag area. I play sniper a lot, but also play most other parts also. When I get sniped, I usually, respawn and go looking for the sniper, It gives me pleasure to find him and take him out....which I do about 90 percent of the time.

BTW, the post was referring CAPTURABLE FLAGS, and they are fair game. I do agree that the UN Capturable Flags should not be camped at. But I have seen planes, Choppers, snipers, tanks and troops do this and not on just one server. Some servers prohibit this practice others do not.

If there are Base Spawncampers, I am on the move just as soon as I spawn....makes it a lot harder to be killed.

Enjoy the game...after all that is what it is. If you walk into my sights when I am sniping and you on the other team, your dead.....simple... Call me what you like, it the rule of the game.

i hate it when people say snipers are the pussies of BF1942. sniping takes skill to find a position and you need good aim. so i completely agree with MaGoo12

It’s interesting how people feel about sniping. If you look at it logically its probably more dangerous that a head on attack. Its been notes through history that snipers do not have a very long life span unless your really good. For me to go after another sniper on a battle field and nail him is very gratifying. And I would think it the same with someone going after me. Ether on a capture able or un capture able base shouldn’t make a difference (I will abide by server rules if I decide play on the server and I find out about the rule before I am taking out wildly jumping spawners) If I spawn in and get nailed I know that a sniper is in the area and now I have a challenge…. A good clan of snipers would rule game don’t you think.. BF1942 is a great game and I enjoy it.

Kool I am courious Does your clan server allow planes, tanks and other forms of armorment to attack Un Capture able flags?... or is it strickly hands off?? You don't know how many times I have spawned in and was killed by a plane. Thats frustrating don't you think?? also what does AFO stand for?
