How many of you enjoy using the sniper rifle? I was never much of a fan, not because I don’t enjoy using the sniper rifle but because unless you actually spend some time practicing with it then the only way you can get any kills is by camping. If there is one thing I hate in COD, it’s camping. So that’s basically the reason I never snipe. For whatever reason I have decided it’s time to start sniping and practicing.
I made a video of my “training”. I went into Killhouse that had less than 7 people. Figure if you’re in a smaller map it forces you to act faster when sniping which is pretty much the hard part of sniping. Anyone can go camp someplace and pick people off, good snipers can let themselves be fairly out in the open and get some kills. For my training game I usually sat atop one of the little huts in Killhouse so that people could see me but I could also duck behind that little wall if I needed to.
There was a guy in there named |E2|Zero and we were sniping back and fourth for most of the time which was pretty fun.
So what is your favorite sniper rifle to use? Mine favorite gun is the M40A. You really can’t beat the power and accuracy of the M40 in my opinion. However, I will say I love using the 50cal when in tighter areas where enemies can run up on you because it has awesome semi-auto noscoping ability.
The R700 seems to take a long time to reset after taking a shot, dunno if it’s my imagination or reality. It does have tons of power but that reset time kills it for me.
When I first started playing Call of Duty I loved the Dragunov and the M21 because of their quick fire ability, now days I don’t care for them because they lack power and accuracy.
How about the ACOG? Anyone like the ACOG? I never really learned to like or use that scope but I have seen some good sniping with it. There is a guy I play with in S&D servers by the name of “Mb@pewp” or something, who seems to do very well with the M40A/ACOG.
Here is the training video I made last night, not bad considering I don’t hardly ever use a sniper rifle. I’m going to upload another one after I practice sniping for couple months and I’ll be able to compare the two and see if I got any better.
I’m trying to figure out the little jerk/twitch thing for increasing accuracy. I don’t know how consoles work but on the PC if you make a slight jerk or twitch to one side before or after your shot, it will dramatically increase your accuracy. Go check out a promod server and spec some of those players when they snipe, it can be a beautiful thing to watch when done correctly.
