Alright sniping as i can tell is very hated and loved thing but its gonna be in BF3 no matter what. Since prone is gonna be in the class doesnt need to be nerfed it needs to be made alot harder to use. Id like to see what the community thinks from both wookie hunters and avid Recon users. Some of the things i think that need to be removed are the spotting scope and magnum ammo option for sniping. Leave the different scopes but bring the breathing rate to mess with your aim especially when using your 12x scope. Bullet drop is awesome but if the engine can pull it off bring in wind to mess with your shots (have change over time during the gameplay to keep people from just becoming to adjusted to the map). Make the ghillie suit an optional unlock for the sniper in the section with the mortar strikes if its remaining in the same class from BC2. As for the spotting scope make it an actual spotting scope that you set up to use with a nice 20x-60x zoom. Increase the points for spotting and assisting other players. Also if a sniper is sitting like within 5ft of you and hes a squadmate allow him to see the outline of a target your spotting for him so as a way to fight wookie to wookie since prones gonna be a part of the game. Only one sniper to spotter to keep a squad from gathering around one spotter. Truly i think sniping can be more appreciated if you just make it more difficult to use and weed out the snipers from the actual RECON players. Any other ideas besides removing the class.
