Fūrinkazan Posted December 31, 2011 Share Posted December 31, 2011 I'm giving you the results of a litlle sniper test : map 2100 m, 1 veteran sniper against one platoon, about11mn battle infantry spotted at 1500 m first shot at 800 m 15 shots by sniper 5 loss for infantry. at 270 m the mp40 guy started to open fire and my sniper detected, wounded and pin down. only 30 % hit. on immobile infantry at 300 m 20 mn 21 kia and 16 wia in 20 mn 60 shots for the sniper. snipers, like in cmsf shoot at medics in priority. on vehicule : no result. Sniper can't hit a tank commander or infantry in half track. He was eliminated in less than 2 mn at about 300 m. I think that in general in the game sniper should really be harder to spot. There is a great difference in cmbn compare to cmx1 game concerning tank commanders. In cmx1 i used to button up my tanks when close to infantry by fear of snipers and that's not the case in the game but i have been reading that it was a bug and that BFC was looking at it. Why is the mp40 shooting at 270 m ? I think it's a waste of ammo and that it reveals the position to the ennemy and the result is a dead team. I have no experience with mp 40 but i had the occasion to shot with the french mat49, a 9mm mp, when in was in the army. i doubt that the weapon would be efficient at that distance. I had the opportunity to talk to a someone who used this weapon during the war in Algeria and he said that this was not a precise weapon at long distance and i guess it's the same with mp in the game. It's a problem for small teams, Snipers, AT team etc... and that was the case in cmsf too. the mp guy shoot at infantry at too long distance, revealing the position and you can say goodbye to your team. I also think that pistols are to accurate in the game at 100 m +. Exemples at little more than 100 m : US tank crew, 3 shots and 2 guys down for the german and a squad pinned down. At 120 m two crew member of a panzer iv hit by a pistol of a US tank crew (compare to snipers). It would be nice also if tank crews did not react as infantry. They attack like regular infantry when the vehicle is destroyed and i think they should stay in more defensive position and that they should be more demoralized when their vehicules are hit. Small details, but sometimes very frustrating when playing 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
