I don't think less knockback on the Sniper would ruin it for 1vs1 play. It still has fantastic range, and it doesn't have to have zero knockback. Lower priority so it doesn't interrupt combos wouldn't hurt 1vs1 either; if your opponent is close enough to punch you in the face, you should NOT be trying to Snipe him to stop it in the first place.
The point would be to draw less attention to himself in FFA, and to cause less disruption for the other players. To make the match less Radec-central. XD

Personally, as a devoted Radec main, I do beleive the sniper needs a nerf of some kind.
The ability to completely reset a single opponent's push toward you with one shot is cumbersome. Radec is certainly meant to put some space between his enemies, but the fact I can completely bully them across the entire stage with a single Square + Forward Triangle
Radec gets a lot of AP with that shot though, making him less noticeable would be awful....though I agree with the decreasing knock back...I HATE knock back in this game..seriously... every time you get hit you go flying like a rag doll... his is especially annoying because if you get hit even at a few feet away you fly across the ENTIRE map and have to chase him down again.
If they get rid of/reduce effectiveness of his Sniper Shot, Radec would easily become one of the worst characters. They would have to at least make his other attacks alot better if they messed with the Sniper Rifle. I, however, am still not seeing the big deal on this topic. Radec is super easy to block/dodge, so his sniper shot never bothers me.
I do agree on the whole knock back issue. They really need to do something about that. It's annoying as **bleep**
As a Sly user, I prefer when I play Radec. He seems like an easy target to me specifically because of sly's counter move. I feel like most of the complainers ignore Radec. If you treat him as the constant target, you can score a lot of AP(up close advantage) and can prevent the player from doing well.
Why does everyone gotta be hating on Radec players? Some of us try not to spam, you know.
