All the more practice for my sw33t sk1llz in the discipline of headshotting a pilot ;)

So far I've done it once... to a guy in an F-35... who was probably AFK because it was just kinda sitting on top of a building.

What game modes are you "snipers" primarily playing?
Conquest
Domination
Rush
TDM
SqDM

I prefer Hard Core
Play mostly Conquest or TDM (which is good to get weapon unlocks)


Conquest (in large maps). This is what I play most of the times as sniper.

Overall, my favorite modes are (in order of preference): 1) Conquest, 2) Domination, and 3) Rush (although not ideal for "snipers" for obvious reasons :wink:

Another thing to consider about snipers in the overall game- it only takes one dude to take a flag or set an objective. Snipers can clear an area, and keep it clear, while another player takes the objectives. I play this role pretty often, even though I'm working through my DMRs right now.

Yeah, in addition, being a sniper can play tricks (fear) in the enemy's mind - knowing there is a sniper out there providing cover fire can prevent the enemy from running freely across the battlefield, slowing them down at the very least. I've found myself in this situation many times, where I have to wait for my team to take out the enemy sniper or simply find a different route to a flag...or hop on a ATV and gun it at max speed :)

I always look for C4 on the front.
