I know what im doing with sniper, i know how to stay hidden im better at killing people at long range, i know how to use all dat fancy stuff, but ill do your qualification course nerde.
only reasons i got caught in kyle hunt cuz bird likes to step on me
i want to do qualification courses just because.. it'd be fun
Someone play Sins of Sol with me god damn
if we're going to do qualification shit, atleast make it like like an actual qualification... you have to get so many hits on x amount of targets out of 40 for example (KDF bootcamp map should be made??) and i would heavily recommend doing a rank structure similar to shack tac, basically count up the active arma players then divide them into 2 squads and have like 2 main people to be the "commander" and the other to be the "assistant" and the 2 squads having basically a squad leader being the "commander" for that squad and having an nco being the "assistant" and will take lead if the "commander" goes down and what not.
but yes, we need qualifications, because we have to many people using weapons they don't know how to use properly, like the AT4, i see too many people missing with it so they have to get within 30m of it and have it stationary to be able to even hit it.
basically everyone has a rifle/carbine, either a standard AK or M16/M4 or any other user preferred standard rifle/carbine. they have to qualify to use the ACOG/PSO-1, GP-25/M203, AT4, shit like that ya'know.
I could use some training, I'll make sure to do what I can to make it. Put me in a role that lets me use shotguns if it suits the mission.
So I was playing lol and ran into this....
It ended up with this.
I have weapons I prefer to use but I wouldn't complain if I got stuck with an M16 or something.
im cool with anything, i've played enough arma (as has pretty much anyone who plays with us) that im comfortable with basically all the guns
I think at the very least we should try to standardize to one type of mag for our rifles.
Probably STANAGs because there's a huge variety of STANAG guns for a huge variety of roles.
i'd just like it if anti-tank weapons, marksman rifles and dedicated sniper platforms were used by the people that actually know how to use them.
outside of that, i don't think it really matters what attachments you're running, i'm sure everyone is familiar enough with GP-30's and M203's and little shit like that
i know how to properly use a SWS with the ACE sniping features such as wind, range finding, shit like that
It's probably best to just give me a rifle and light AT. I can't hit shit with GLs.
snipers are usually unnessary unless the mission calls for it, some sort of DMR is the best
got ACRE running through SIX again, along with all my mods
god i love this malformed piece of trash
that one mission we did with me, oakman and d3vils forming a sniper/spotter/security team was pretty badass though
i was slaying bodies with that TAC-50
niko work on my skin nerde
How about we just have designated marksmen with SVDs and if we ever do a sniper mission they can switch to a TAC-50 or something.
Sniper (DIFFERENT FROM SNIPER RIFLE) = Operates in a team of 2. Moves silently out of combat, gets into position, waits for hours, takes out a single target from 1.5km away after a few minutes of calculations, and leaves the combat area without any further contact.
Squad Designated Marksman (S.D.M.) = Operates within a squad of 6-12. Can be expected to operate like a normal rifleman and is given optics and generally a calibre capable of taking out targets from 1.5-2x past normal rifleman range. Right in the the thick of everything. Snap shooting galore.
WE. DON'T. USE. SNIPERS. They don't exist in our missions. Holy shit.
woww, i've run sniper roles in domination, not 1.5km but like, up to around 800m
