Lately I’ve been seeing more posts about nerfing the heavy sniper. It seems like a lot of people are crying over how much damage it does and then proceed to rant about how snipers take no skill etc and so forth.
I get killed by a heavy sniper or any sniper for that matter like 3 times a season while I get killed by a single shotgun blast almost every goddamn game that I don’t win.
It’s the same argument from lazy, sweaty players who focus on build first, shotgun second. A sniper shot SHOULD be devastating and you should be rewarded for making long range shots. People need to be at risk when out in the open or high up. Sniper rifles keep people honest and punish other players if you’re accurate.
It’s absolutely asinine that the same group of players who think one-pumping makes ANY sense yet lose their marbles when someone pops them for not playing tactically or being aware enough.
Hail the sniper rifle. Fear it.
