yeah i noticed that too, m95 is a little sluggish compared to GOL or m24, GOl is the most accurate are out all of the sniper rifles.

GOL + Red dot = win.
GOL + 4x = win.
GOL + regular scope = win.
GOL + 12x = win.

With a red dot its great for close quarters too

I haven't played in probably 3 months but does the 12x actually do anything now? I went back to AA3 and haven't looked back :/

Bullet drop, with or without magnum ammo, is the same for all infantry weapons, including snipers (I tested it, and recent videos will show you this. This was not the case 4 months ago however).

The M95 is basically useless because it barely does more damage than other bolt action snipers, is much slower to reload or scope in.

The only "advantage" it has that it can damage light armor such as helicopters or humvees. And when I say damage it means it takes 14 shots with magnum ammo at point blank to destroy a helicopter. You basically have a better chance of sniping the pilot than destroying the chopper at long range.

It has always worked, not sure what you're talking about. At least it zooms more than the default scope.

That's surprising to hear. Last I checked that game is just riddled with bugs and was almost unplayable for me (like a few months ago).

yeah the only advantage the m95 has is it sounds cool. The scope doesn't stay still, it takes forever to rescope/reload and the tiny bit of extra damage is pointless.

I find the SVU the best sniper in the game, precise enough at really long range, and when you learn its bulletdrop, it's really deadly...

that's the one. I actually tested it on Isla Innocentes in the second stage; shot from the defender's base (with stock scope) and hit a wooden post on the middle island. I thought it had terrible accuracy!

I use the 12x scope, and find the accuracy excellent though :S
