Man, I replied on different posts and they all ended up here. They should fix that.
A Raven sniper.
sniping's fun. It's a game. stop complaining that you're not good enough to not get hit by snipers. I never complained about them when I was running around with a shotgun killing enemies in one shot or knifing them in the back befor they know i'm there. That wasn't particularly difficult. having a good sniper on my team is great. being able to rely on him or her help us push forward through a tough spot is key. Good squad leaders use snipers.
Sav i know where your coming from.... as getting killed by a sniper is very annoying... even when im sniping and i get sniped its annoying.. but its annoying because its a powerful gun... but its only one shot.. after that one shot and your not down the sniper usually gets killed because of his position gets revealed. Snipers that spawn kill are just lookin out for them selves and wont get far in MAG. A smoke screen and some anticipation to where they are usually allows me to pick them off and then knowing those noobs they would try to get that spot back so i wait for them.... i guarantee you after a few times he wont even bother goin that close to your spawn anymroe
If I get sniped while I'm sniping, I typically start abandoning other easier targets and focus on my counterparts, especially in Domination and Sabotage. Truthfully, the anti-sniper role is just as important to winning as troop support. If you didn't play the beta, though, get ready for some serious spawn camping by snipers in Escalation. On at least two of the maps, some of the spawn points are visible to a sniper with the variable scope from an extremely long distance. Yes, smoke and gas grenades make it difficult to see at those kind of distances, but once you get hang of knowing precisely where certain spawn points are, hitting a newly spawned target becomes child's play. Hopefully they'll change the maps to make it more difficult before Escalation is released.
Wow. A simple post for some tips for snipers turns into a pissing match about who's gun is better. I am sure in my year of playing this game I have put a bullet in each and every one of you LMAO. Point is everyone has there own way of paying the game and if you can't stand it.....then oh f'n well!!!!! It's gonna happen regardless of what you say or do...BECAUSE ITS JUST A GAME. Please move away from your PS3 and get laid or do something constructive with your time.
