I dont care if Im not the perfect sniper lol... But hitting a head at 500 meters is damn near impossible I dont care who you are... Especailly if the target is moving, jumping ducking etc... Im not saying Im the man or anything... But torso shots with sniper rifles should down someone...

Also... Does BC2 have like windage? Bullet drop etc?

Given a certain distance, those headshots might only be body shots (the game has bullet drop).
The starting rifle is just as good as any really. Just give it some time and you should soon be able to get headshots more and more often (I can't, but I don't practice enough).

As another guy has said, the other weapons in the game aren't entirely that much more beneficial to have. Yes, there are some weapons that work extremely well in almost any situation, but you will eventually be able to get those weapons, provided you play that class long enough to rack up the points.
The only real thing that can effect how well you play (and your play style) are the ammo packs/health kits/defibrillator (in my opinion). Once you unlock the defib, you become an even more valuable asset to the team, and you can easily wrack up enough points to unlock much of the medic equipment very easily.

The majority of the unlockables are garbage.

There are maybe 1 or 2 of each class weapon I will use.

For Assault it's the starting gun and the M16 (last unlock) - the starting gun is better for close combat whereas the M16 is better for long range. (Both with iron sights)

Recon, I only ever use the first sniper rifle.

The unlocks are just weapons that can suit playstyles if you adapt to them, the original weapons are in no way worse than any of the others.

the M24, SV98, GOL and M95 will 1 shot someone with a head shot. they can 1 shot someone from a body shot at close range as well.

for your rant about weapons, unlocks dont = skill. you can do just fine starting out. just know that the game has pretty terrible hit registry. if youre having trouble just use an smg. they are by far the most easy mode weapons.

The pacing and scale is much larger than COD style gameplay, so for me it is easier to find people standing still/far away that cant see me. I find it much more rewarding when i can make an awesome long distance headshot than quickingscoping for a easy kill like in COD. But if i do start get tons of hitmarkers sniping in BC2, thats when i pull out the mortars lol.
Hmmm I might have to give these hardcore servers ago... Is that the only difference between the two?

In response to your comment on torso shots: yes, in real life, yes, the majority of people would be on the floor grabbing their leg if they were shot by a 9mm. This is a game, and not a simulator game at that. I thank GOD the snipers aren't one shot in the torso killers. No thanks, if I wanted that I'd still be playing the decade old CS. There are 10 too many snipers in every server out there as it is WITHOUT the one hit kills. 1 hit kills? Expect double the sniper infestation.
Thats true I guess... I remember games like DOD etc used to limit classes which seems like a good idea to counter this...

u wanna know what seperates good players... bad players run around the map, especially corners.. better players use cover and walk around corners..

My main gribe is the sights to be honest... I go around pillaging dead peoples kits cause at least they have sights lol...

So far on assualt all the guns Ive unlocked to me at least seem better than the ones previously lol. I may be wrong of course... Still think the whole unlock thing is a tad stupid lol.

personally i prefer iron sights over anything else. thats all i use even at extreme ranges (except sniper rifles of course).

Haha,I do the same,the sights sometimes really do give you an advantage.
The hardest mode to play unless you have unlocked stuff ( for me anyway) is the medic.

Your first rant
The upgraded weapons don't really give u an advantage, they arn't much better, i have everything unlocked, but i personly hate using the uper level guns they are kinda sucky.

2nd rant
my first thought was snipers in the game sucked, for the same reason you did, but now i get headshots every time with my GOl and even the first sniper is amazing if u know how to use it. The game has reaslistic bullet drop, so aim abit over them and u should do fine. U must be used to playing COD or something, shoot someone in the foot and they die is just not realistic

The XM8(first rifle) is one of the best assault rifles. Seriously. The M16 which you will unlock the last is the other best.

When you are playing and unlocking guns, the newer ones do appear to be better but as you play on you will realize which gun gets you the most kills.

Picking up other dead people's kit is a good idea, I did that alot too.
