Well, sniper buttons are an addition to your normal mouse4 and mouse5.

Mode1: press button to lower DPi (max 800)
Mode 2: press button to act as right click + lower DPi (toggle ADS)
Mode 3: same as mode 2 but hold to ADS
Mode 4: ? this presses right button 2x (unknown feature)
Mode 5: quickscope macro (right key, delay, left key)
Mode 6: "aggressive sniper" (quickscope sequence, switch to secondary + rapidfire, switch back to sniper rifle)
That looks very intrusive, and using macros and stuff like that is the same as cheating for me.

So "sniper button" is just another way of saying "mouse6"? Because I really don't care if a bunch of marketing people decide to paint a crosshair on my favorite button, or a four, or a six, or a bunny, or a pair of boobs. As long as I get to make it do something other than change the sensitivity, I'll be happy that button is there.

One option would be a really really flat sniper button with kind of heavy force to press it. I am sure the buttons on the mouse are still in the way as your thumb will be on them and might even accidently click.

The macros you've listed are possible with proper setups in other mice aswell (like the quickswitch mode6 macro you mentioned).

Maybe you should first explain what a "sniper button" is, so that we know what we're talking about.


Anyway, I definitely think that sensitivity switching can be useful, as I've explained in a thread, and it has nothing to do with games.
The use case outside of gaming would include a hold-mode sensitivity "sniper button" (as opposed to the standard click-to-switch button).

If it's implemented properly I have no objections. The problem is that, in practice, it's very difficult to add another button without messing with the ergonomics of the mouse.

I always wonder why people that says they need a ton of button on their mice (more than two side buttons), always seem to forget about their.. keyboard with 100s of buttons where you can add modifiers..

Just saying.

Well, a dpi switch button makes more sense than a button you have to hold in order to get another dpi. Most dpi-switch buttons are located around the scroll wheel, and they are not really in the way (not for me at least), but having a button you need to hold in order to get a different dpi that's located right under your thumb seems less fine.

Left, right, middle, two thumbs, and DPI up/down. Nothing more please.

Depends. If you're already doing something (like drawing, selecting...) while holding the left mouse button, using your thumb would be nice, since you wouldn't have to let go of left mouse button to press it and get a temporary sensitivity change.
As I said, in practice it's not easy to implement such a button without it getting in the way, but perhaps it's not impossible.

yeah, but the Bloody series runs macro on hardware only, no software needed to run the macro

it's undetected if the game publisher bans macros smile.gif

Definitely not lol, most good FPS players will tell you to stick to a single CPI setting for a reason, and that reason is muscle memory. In my opinion sniper buttons are just another flashy feature that no experienced FPS player would actually use.
