i'd hate to be on the wrong end of that sniper thats for sure... you'd never see him if you were more than 5 feet away..

So what if snipers can prone? That's what they do in real life, you don't see a sniper just sit there crouched trying to snipe all the time. Don't hate on sniper tactics just hate on the stupid teams that have like a 8:1 sniper ratio

Yeah, it's all situational like anything else. I played a round today where my team was up like 75 to 30 and they had capped all the bases and were camping the one closest to our base. So I just went recon and started popping them. I think I got like 17 kills and we won by 5.

I will say that too many recons is annoying, almost as annoying as 7 people waiting in the base for the heli to spawn.

Prone is in the game. Need to read up on some BF3 facts man, lots has changed! It's BF3 not BFBC3

And I agree, there are tons of sniper in BFBC2 that stand hand use some REALLY powerful sniper rifles lol that would NEVER happen in real life BUT we have to remember that these are video games and there has to be balance between classes. I enjoy the balance they have in BFBC2 but some maps throw classes off balance.

Can't WAIT for HUGE 10 flag conquest maps with jets yaaay!

You can't expect a video game to be like real-life. Sure you can camp for days prone as a sniper in real life, but who would sit on their computer for days on end just to play one round? Campin' bob is shunned in online gaming because it takes zero skill and slows everything down. Man up and rush the MCOM or go play Children of Duty somewhere else.

Snipers have there place in battlefield games.

To reveal target information (Spot)
Protect flags from a-far (Defensive sniping)
Scout a flag area (Offensive sniping)

They are a valid and needed class in this series, you shouldn't shun them just because of a few bad eggs.

All of the above can be done by real professions or mobile snipers. The snipers that camp from the uncap are indeed 100% useless. Spotting can be done by ANY player(or BF2 commander). One out of a couple hundred thousand snipers MAY be useful but I've yet to come across very many of them in the ~1.5 year I've been playing BC2.
