  • What's your favorite Sniper Rifle? Hardcore or not

    Today I was messin around with all the sniper rifles on Hardcore Rush rounds. With Magnum bullets and all, each is pretty much a guranteed one-shot kill (except for the VSS of course).Then I decided which one is the best to use... the SVU. Its semi automatic, silenced, big clip, big loadout from the start, and one shot kill with magnum bullets and on hardcore(thats what i pretty much play on these days). No need for the ultimate bolt-action rifles that takes heads off.

    I want to know what you guys think about the sniper rifle line-up; whats ur favorite one and what perks do you use with it.

    I like the M95 with magnum for non-hardcore. There's not much bullet drop so it's easy to pop heads. And most people go down in one shot if they are already injured. M24 ain't bad either. I'll try out the SVU since you said something. That semi auto sniper rifle that's itty bitty, I think it's the Snyaperskaya Short, I played with that today. It's pretty cool with the red dot sight and in like an assault or overwatch role.

      The SVU is by far the best sniper rifle in HC, especially since it has the normal weapon bullet drop and not the harsher drop of the M24, M95, and the GOL.

        I believe its the short version of the Dragunov but i may be wrong. You can tell it is a counter part because when you reload, the barrel is similar to the dragunov. Another weapon similar to the SVU is the Type 88 sniper rifle. It does the same amount of dmg but its less accurate due to its increased rate of fire. My favorite bolt action is the SV98, doesnt do as much dmg as the M95 or M24 but its mobility and ammo clip makes it pretty good on maps such as Valpariso and Nelson Bay.

          I've been enjoying the GOL for quite a while. Magnum ammo doesn't do a thing though on non hardcore.

            GOL Sniper Magnum. Accuracy is king in a mode where a bullet to anywhere kills. I can accurately hit a person who only has their elbow showing on the far side of the map. My only gripe is the 5 bullet magazine, but it's workable. As for the bullet drop, I actually enjoy estimating the compensation necessary. Part of the fun of sniping are those totally outrageous shots that have the victim chewing their keyboard in anger.

              Has anyone noticed that with a 12x zoom, bullet drop is almost non existent? That is unless your firing straight uphill.

                no I haven't noticed that at all, maybe with the 50cal, but I don't usually use it so I can't say for sure. Depending on the distance, I sometimes aim anywhere from a quarter to half an inch higher.

                  On hc, the svu takes two shots with magnum ammo, 1 to the head. I haven't killed anyone with one body shot with it, but maybe I just suck lol. My favorie rifle is the gol. Technically, the best rifle IMO is the sv98. It's got a fast rate of fire and a ten round clip. Like I said, unless ur sitting very far back, the best rifle for all purpose gameplay is the sv98.

                    The report from the GOL firing is by itself a tremendous draw.

                    Literally: BOOM! Headshot!

                        What perks do you all use? I personally have been sticking to 12x zoom since I believe it alleviates bullet drop. Could be the placebo effect though. Also I've found Magnum Ammo completely useless except for side arms and with the auto spotter currently broken, I usually go for improved explosives.

                        Thoughts? :)

                          Magnum on the 1911 is pretty sexy, but other than that, kind of pointless.

                          I usually take body armor. Helps with those "Holy crap that's an enemy medic!" moments.

                            I guess judging from my stats with weapons, the GOL is my favorite: 99 headshots on 155 kills. I like the SVU in principle, but I can't seem to get in enough shots or headshots to put someone turn before they turn, find me, and blast me or run away. With the GOL, I take 12x scope and either explosives perk (I'm not sure if it makes mortar strikes stronger) or extra speed.

                              I change my rifle depending on the map. For maps with long lines of sight I will go with the M95 or M24. I prefer the MIL DOT reticule so I dont use the GOL that often. On shorter maps I have been going with SV98 or the SVU.

                              Bullet drop is still there on the 12x scope.

                              I will go with 12x scope, body armor and of course mortar strike.
