I don't find sharpshooter is needed. Since the red dot is where the bullet goes, you don't have to worry if you take a split second to manage the **bleep**. Plus, once you're upgraded, The reload speed compensates if you need a second **bleep**.

I found the ammo cost for the military exorbitant, but I love the fact that if you miss a head shot down, you can fire again so quickly.

Get good enough with the HR and those 4 points are well spent elsewhere.

Scoot u seem to know ur HR pretty well.
Right now, my maximum points is only 12. Btw, what's the maximum points and @ what level?

Here's my 2 updated set ups for...

Big Maps/ Long Range:
Revolver
Silenced HR
Hawkeye 3
Sharpshooter 2 (I wish I had one more point to maximize this too)


Small Maps/ Short Range:
Shorty
HR
Crafter 3
Reviver

Assault Rifle


I'm really not that awesome to drop Sharpshooter in the big maps. It's pretty hard getting headshots without it in long ranges. Hawkeye 3 is pretty amazing I agree.

Once I know the positions and my team is closing it, I switch from my original sniper seat and try to get an angle on them.

The short range small map load out is pretty interesting and it's very buddy related. I usually try to stick with someone who I think is good as a team member and feed myself and him items. With this set up I find that I don't need sharpshooter at all since they are so close. I can basically pop heads with a snap-shot. Laying traps through my escape routes and making sure I know where my back up is so that I'll be able to escape with their help.

Thoughts?

I HATE the sniper rifle in this game. I wish it reloaded a little quick. I know you can upgrade it, but it feels soooo slow. I hate taking down an enemy only to watch a teammate steal my kill because the rifle is reloading half a mile an hour.

13 load out points.  When your Supplies total hits 7500, you get the last one.
