Also to the people who are saying "but but I take my time and line up my shot to get that 1 hit body kill", well that must mean u are a terrible sniper cause on hardcore you just need to aim at the and shoot and move on, quick scoping is the way to go, only time I need to aim to line up my shot is on regular mode going for those headshots. All these snipers need to get of easy mode and L2P. Try playing harvest day on hardcore mode, literally impossible for the attackers because its a snipers wetdream and the attackers cant do anything about the 10 enemy snipers shooting at them as it is a big open field to cross with no cover.
Indeed, too many newbies with L2P issues.
Aim for the head or get lost, even in BC2 you need a headshot to make a long range kill.
All this does is eliminate the close combat quickscoping from bc2, which is good for game balance.
Even though I rather have a quickscoper in my squad than a sniper that is hiding somewhere in a bush.
People who moan about this have never played Battlefield before, and are not the kind of players we like to see on our servers anyway Edited by Deluxe - 9/4/11 at 12:02pm
