And still, how many "snipers" do you see that get consistent headshots?


38 hours on the m40 and I've been using it on and off since day 1.
It's not too many hours I suppose but I've been using it a lot lately.

Still 60% headshot ratio isn't too bad considering all the metro spamming I did at the beginning, and the long range sniping in the middle and now a combination of all 3 ranges :D

EDIT: Average for my snipers is about 50-60% headshot accuracy so what ever that says.


a sniper that doesnt aim for head, is mostly a dead sniper.talkin about bolt actions, obviously.
here are my hk% from bf3 stats. whit semiautos it goes down to 40-50% though.

M40A5 71.31%
SV98 72.40%
M98B 73.97%
L96 74.11%
JNG-90 75.75%

-Guns with 5 SS=62 [need to complete pistols(except 93r) and launchers(except m320,already did it)].

I don't understand why they didn't add bullet traces D:

On Reach, if you hear a sniper you do two things;

1- Check known sniper camping spots for that map
2- Check around the sniper spawn point, see if the guy has just picked it up

All the while looking for it's trace.

IT'S NOT HARD, DICE!

Plus, snipers could see a line showing them where their bullet went for ~0.5s after they shot. It's Win/Win.

I feel that scope glint is necessary, so as not to make long-distance snipers totally invincible. However, with its current iteration, I feel it is unfair to the sniper. It should be toned down slightly, so you have to have a keen eye, rather than just look in the general direction. Also, it should only appear outside of, say, 50-75m.

They added scope glint to remind snipers that they're enormous ass bandits every time someone beans them in the skull with a 320.

I'm glad it's there, after 10 years of lost rounds due to cunts sitting on hills staring down scopes, I'm glad a giant glowing fist has come down from the sky and punched them right in the gonads.

Scope glint isn't an issue if you're not hiding in some bush like a faggot waiting for someone to stop moving for a split second so you can stroke it to the marksman bonus you just got.

tl;dr, ptfo and scope glint is no consequence.

The glint is stupid. I am all for balance but you do not even had to be aiming to glint and you need to turn almost 90 degrees away to stop the glint.

this. at least make it appear only if you are ads,and at certain angles. i cant stop laughin when in a metro tunnel i see a fukin nova explosion in the dark and kill it whit a pistol...
Now, a camouflaged sniper sitting 300 m away behind cover (or prone in the grass) would be totally invisible. Not fair at all.

Well, it would be fair if a camouflaged sniper who is 300 m away is invisible, becouse you know, HE IS CAMOUFLAGED AND 300 METRES AWAY. 8o

That statement is completely false.


Scope glint works like a non-blinding tac light, so just like the tac light it becomes weaker over distance. Which means you're more visible when PTFO.

A better "fix" would have been exaggerated tracers and less ammo. That way recon that are trying to actually do reconnaissance can do so without being seen.

I've not held a 70% headshot ratio in a while. All the body shot finishing/weakening on moving targets dampens the stat.
I've tried consistent headshots on moving targets... Was less than consistent unless the ping was constant all day.


Top 0% for the M1014 apparently :D
