Snipers are EZ. I'm loving the scope glint, it makes all these idiots that just LOOOOVE sitting around sniping such easy humiliating targets. On Metro I once snuck around to the back of dumbass island and slit 3 snipers' throats without any of them even noticing.
I'd love to vacation on that island with you sometime.

So you're one of the obnoxious antenna snipers? Ugh. Well, thanks to the glint, I sometimes randomly spot multiple snipers up there, and blast them all away with my SMAW from far. I'd love to see my rocket flying into their faces from their point of view. Why do snipers think that the highest, most obvious, out in the open spot is "good" for sniping?
The antenna was mostly good for counter-sniping guys in the middle of the map or D. Also you could pick off guys waiting for Jets to spawn at the US base. I never got sniped while I was up there. Did get knifed, shot or rocket killed a few times, but not enough to keep me from going up there and doing well.

I would get up on the tower once my team owned E, but then if the enemy team captured it I would rain holy hell from above until I got swarmed by rockets and tank rounds or suppressed by gunfire. Must've been really frustrating to spawn at E and get sniped in a few seconds.

It just feels really rewarding sniping a guy from a quarter mile+ away after adjusting for Coriolis affect.

Best thing is snipers that put mobile spawnpoints where they camp. Just kill them then camp the spawn = free kills until they spawn elsewhere lol.

COD-style players at their finest. I have a COD-loving friend that insists that sprinting into the firefight, and spraying his rifle in every direction without even bringing up his sights is the way to play FPS. He doesn't believe in FPS strategy, things like waiting in a bush for a tank to pass you by when you're helpless without a rocket launcher or taking your time to stealthy flank a group of enemies that are defending an area. It's run in guns blazing for him. So I usually sit back and watch him die multiple times, letting him respawn on me until he gives up and says the game sucks.

Newegg has been giving promo codes to get $12 off, and with no tax and no shipping costs, it leaves it to be $48 to get it shipped off towards you on release day.

If the US doesn't have an idiot AA gunner who sits back near the the stationary AA, snipers on the antenna are never an issue. In fact I love it when the Russians take E. Go over, pick off a bunch of guys at E, leave, shoot down a helicopter and jet, rinse, repeat. Out in the open the AA is unstoppable. Too fast for tanks or engineer rockets and super accurate. The only threat is the laser guided missiles from jets, but one puff of smoke and they normally find another target.

I would have 20-0 type rounds with the AA on the US side. The AA for Russia is a little more difficult simply due to the fact there is not a flag nearby that allows for easy attacking, and the open field by the Russian deployment has a ton of hills that slows down the AA and actually makes it a target for tanks.
