Teach Me how to Snipe?

16 replies 272 views Edited Nov 23, 2012

Any good snipers wanna add me and teach me in a custom game? I went through a phase of being really good, but it just went away.

I'd like to learn too. I still got my quickscope skill, but I can't handle the recoil anymore....

There is a simple way to do this.

You will need the quickboom kickback and very responsive reflexes.

You first need enough medals for quickboom. Quickboom will basically be your training wheels until you are able to blindfire snipe like a pro!

When you have enough medals for quickboom, activate it as soon as you see a target.

Here is the very tricky part so pay attention!

You must first move on a direction and tap circle then quickly press L2, hold L1, mash R1.

Keep doing that until you learn how to aim. Quickboom motivates you.

Kind regards,

If you want to learn, I could try to teach you. Sniping is supposed to be long range, so "quickscoping" and "noscoping" are impractical. Ill be on in about an hour, we'll talk strategy then. Just remember, find a sensitivity that you are used to and don't go for headshots unless you are sure they will hit, never take the second shot until the recoil has settled.

Pretty easy in this game. Just use the aim to quick scope on people. Works for all ranges. I generally stick to the Tbolt though.

I wanna learn with the FAL or Dragon. I'm average with both, but I wanna be really good. Like how I was with the M9 in HC. Man, good times.

For the FAL, you should only scope if its not a head to head firefight at close range. And if you do scope, don't hold back. You can spam the trigger without it jamming. The recoil is fine if you aim lower depending on how far the target is. You can't actually snipe unless your opponent has slower reflexes than a turtle in molasses, because sniping distance would make you have to shoot the FAL slowly so recoil doesn't bounce too high. For the dragon, you could try using the Raffica weapon expert trick.

I'm decent with the T-Bolt. I'm better if I'm not under pressure ( like not being shot at or being rushed). I suck with the Dragon and FAL because of their recoil. I with there was a Bipod addon like in GRFS.

I'm also good with the T-Bolt, meaning I just do bad with a sniper that isn't 1HK.
