Snipers

Anyone else think that they should remove the white Air dis-purse on the snipers to make it less obvious. cos its takes no skill to find them you just look in the sky and follow the line?? thoughts??

no saying people shouldn't snipe.. its a valid and important part of the game to help win.

No... There are rifles without it. Use one of them if it bothers you.

Sorry but no imo. Too many games I've played with a tree line of blue dots of 'snipers' camping on the mini-map on attack that makes it incredibly frustrating when only a few of us go for objectives. Anything that discourages camping is positive imo, I do not want recons sitting in one spot in a bush for basically the entire match.

When I play recon I move(occasionally).
I throw down motion mines and I spot.
Why do you say Recon when clearly you mean Bushwookie?

I think snipers should wear a pretty pink party frock.

I didn't realize the game class names were changed. No I don't mean bushwookies, and I'm well aware of the nickname those type of players have been given. I say RECON because that's the class's name, what else more do you want?

You said sitting in one spot in a bush. This refers to the subcategory of bushwookie not Recon as a whole.
Though you may have been directing your speech at them by simply describing the BW habits instead of using the name. Well played.

Lol reminds me of when you get handicapped for breaking the rules at paintballing. Have to wear a sparkling pink dress or hat that makes you stick out from a mile away xD

stop hiding in a bush when you're sniping. all it takes is someone actually spotting to give away your location anyways. learn how to dodge, to use hard cover rather than soft so it won't matter if enemies know your location. be mobile, kill enemies with range advantage or damage frontloading advantage, not 'hurr durr didn't see me there didya'

Anyone able to clear up which guns have trails?
I thought it was only if you had magnum ammo equipped.
But then I get it all the time with the T88, and some of the time with the GOL, but I never see it otherwise.
