What are your favourite Maps to play Sniper Recon on.

This pretty much occurred to me after playing Sniper Recon on Sunken Dragon and really enjoying myself on Conquest. Back in BF3 I played rush a lot and made good use of the recon class in this game type. In BF4 however, I've been stuck with Conquest... I enjoy conquest, but I personally find as the Sniper Recon it is much harder to be effective on this gametype. However I've started to get back into it on Sunken Dragon which I think might just be my favourite map to snipe on for conquest.
My current favourite conquest sniping maps are: Sunken Dragon, Lumphini Garden (sometimes), Hanian Resort and the some of the Naval Strike maps seemed pretty good... However I haven't play them much due to lack of servers :( . I'm going to try Sniping out on Rush again and just playing rush in general once they finish fixing the maps... But in the meantime I'm on Conquest.

I'm curious. What maps do you guys enjoy sniping on for conquest? Or for those who play rush, what are your favourites on that?

I mainly play conquest and consider myself to be a decent sniper. Saying that, I don't play like a sniper. I'm the idiot running round with everyone else using a BA. It's a style I really enjoy because theoretically, you have the potential to take out any target at any range instantly. I don't see the appeal of the "camping" sniper (though, each to their own) and take great pleasure in destroying those guys sitting on map boundaries next to their beacons.

As for maps, there aren't many that I'd say are better or worse than others. Discounting OpLock/Metro, obviously, any map with some decent sightlines will let you do work. I always seem to pull a BA on Firestorm, though I never even set foot on the mountains! Hainan is fine, but I dislike the map in general. At the moment, I've really been enjoying Lumphini Garden. I've had some insane matches with the CS5. Maybe it's just because people are so keen to line up on the elevated train lines and stay still for me. Are people going for the CS5 assignment, or what?

i did se the appeal back in bf3 (because it was actually helpful if you were good at it) bvut on bf4 it is just useless,if you are at more than 150 meters from the objective,most likely you won't be able to see even the zone close to the obvjective,in bf4.

By Sniper Recon, I assume you mean QBU on Recon class. Otherwise, what are you talking about?
I buffed DMR velocity.
QBU is only weapon in my heart. That and the M1911.

Maps with long lines of sight and plenty of targets to designate appeal to me for sniping, so stuff like Lost Islands or Rogue Transmission. I like Lumphini Garden for sniping, too. Maps with a lot of verticality like Flood Zone or Siege of Shanghai are a turn-off, though. I don't like shooting straight up or down.

Incest is intriguing, due to the taboos placed upon it in our society. It can be a beautiful thing, and it should be explored more.

I meant Recon using a sniper rifle... Hence Sniper Recon :S I thought that would have eliminated any confusion on Recon using any other weapon.

In that case, the GOL was for a time my most used weapon, but when I tried getting back with it I just couldn't. Now I'm using the CS5, which I absolutely love. For sniping I'll usually grab an objective to defend for the duration of the match. I'll usually stay just out of the objective's range and keep a scope on the lookout for enemies approaching it. If I see one or two, I'll take them out. Any more than that and I'll just try to wait until I can get an absolute kill on 2 of them before taking on the rest. If a vehicle approaches, I'll usually just let them take the objective or wait for backup. Or C4 if they're open to it. I use Motion Balls as well and an M1911 to aid me.

How I play Sniper is on more linear maps like Firestorm, I run parallel to my squad, ~150m to the side in order to get flanking kills and spot for teammates.

Generally I'll run into other players going for long flanks and be able to guard against them too.

Running into the thick of it can be fun with a bolt-action, but I wouldn't call it the most intelligent course of action.

The CS5 or M40 is perfect for this playstyle. The GOL or M98B works, but DAT FIRE RATE DOE.
