Sharpshooter-less hunting rifle.

34 replies 573 views Edited Sep 15, 2013
Usually I'd play with sharpshooter 3 just for nice aiming, but since 3 out of the 4 people I face usually have a semi automatic (With damage wobble that makes SS3 look like a joke.) So I decided to try a crazy idea and rip out Sharpshooter 3 from my build. From there, I made a marksman build with strategist 2, hawk eye 3, and sharp ears 2. Has anyone else tried this approach?

I love my sharpshooter with my sniper too much for regenerating health mixed with hawk eye 3 as well, oh boy I love it too much to change my loadout

I use the HR all the time, and I do not use sharpshooter at all...

 

I've been able to get a decent number of headshots without it when sniping... I find that (in my experience) once you get use to how the gun sways, the effect becomes less noticable (since SS reduces this)... mind you, it took a while to get used to this.

 

The SAR's can still be a hassle with the stun of repetitive shots.

The only thing I couldn't do without sharpshooter is aim at people from very long ranges (For example, the wooden watchtower in the middle of university and the window right next to the fountain where the supply box is located.) That also have sharpshooter.

I tried out the HR last night for the first time in a long time. And my only problem is when I don't get head shots. You know when you're laying wait and some guy oops his head up from behind a wall looking for someone and he's completely unaware of you. I line his head up. Pull the trigger... Boom body shot! **bleep**!? The red dot was CLEARLY in his non-moving head.Basically the only thing above cover I can shoot was his head. Now he knows where I am. Ducks and heals. And I'm reloading. So frustrating.

Is there a magical spot I should be aiming for?

When I quick scope, the headshots are more accurate. Hard scoping is horrid though

I've never had this happen to me. Maybe your shot really is just off? :smileyindifferent:

Sure I'm off sometimes. But I'm talking about the perfectly still, unaware victim. The "no doubt about it" shots. It doesn't happen all the time. But it happens enough to make this non-sniper, stay a non-sniper.
