Okay, me:

Map: Muttrah City V2
Team: USMC
Location: Northern Mountains
Marksmen/Sniper: Sniper
Approx. Distance: 1000 meters
How long the bullet took to hit the target: 2-3 seconds
Additional Details: Some guy was running around in the street, so while he was running horizontally, I hit 3, waited a few second, shot a foot or two in front of him, and he died. Was pretty epic.


Your turn!

Map: Muttrah City V2
Team: USMC
Location: The Tower to the north east of MEC Fortress
Marksmen/Sniper: Marksmen
Approx. Distance: 200-600 (i really cant remember what the distance is)
How long the bullet took to hit the target: 0.5-2 seconds

Additional Details: A enemy squad had completly given up on the map cuz the US were dominating so they had all grabed pilots kits and were base jumping from the fortress's highest tower. All 6 were standing on the turrets, i shot two before they new what was happening and then the other 4 jumped. 2 Managed to deploy their parachutes, 1 forgot and fell to the ground and 1 was shot in middair. Out of the two remaining one was killed wile gliding down and the last was killed wile running for an APC about 30 seconds later.

about 1.4 seconds

There were two guys standing side by side on the barbed wire fence wall. They were doing something. I couldn't see. Probably healing. I took out the the medic that was healing him. He turned around about 3 seconds later wondering what's going on, He moved a little bit and crouched. I had him in my sights, and took the shot. That was my pink mist.( Head Shot).

Rifleman-AT
350-500m
0.3-0.7 seconds

i took down a heli with a LAT kit. the chopper crash-landed, but 3 crew members survived. I shot two of them dead, then a full squad came over a hill to rescue the pilot. i fired on them, killing 2, then retreated around and up the mountain to gain a greater height advantage. I fired on the remainder of the squad, killing 2 more. the rest retreated. my accuracy during the engagement was about 20-40% with about 1/3 of my kills being headshots. (id say thats pretty damn good for a battle rifle at 300+ meters range)

Not the perfect shot, but perfect in my eyes

not to be a jerk or anything, but if the shot took one second to reach the target, then you must have been at around 1000 meters away.

well i wasnt timing it was i :O i just guessed an approximate time cos unfortunately i dont live in the matrix and therefore judging whether its 0.5 seconds or 1 second is quite hard

Not that it matters cos I have a new 1 :D

Are you saying I shudnt have shot at them anymore? They came up on our flank after they had been wiped out trying to come in from the bunker but we beat them off again. Was top SLing that round btw I hope to be in your squad again soon.

But seriously why not cover them in bullets? lol

Map: Kashan
Team: MEC
Location: Bunker opposite of South Bunker
Marksmen/Sniper: Sniper
Approx. Distance: 800-900
How long the bullet took to hit the target: maybe 2sec
Additional Details: I was just learning the sniper kit and was getting some nice kills on top of the bunker, when i noticed a US sniper and a spotter on top of the mountain to the east. Sure enough i aimed maybe 2 meters above the sniper, waite some seconds and shot, and the sniper went down. The spotter seemed like he wanted to kill me so he stayed. I aimed and shot one more time and he was down too :D

Another kill that happened the same game was when I and my squad was at the buildings between the bunkers and North Village. There was a Humwee with a guner at NV and he was shooting at us. I aimed and shot him straight through the little crack at the gunner seat maybe 600m away. Best kill so far!

I thought I'd ask this here..

When determining bullet drop, you use the binoculars correct? Does the 1 on there means 1000 meters or 100 meters?

Thanks

Additional Details: That was a fun shot, just because I had a stolen sniper kit and asked a collaborator to put me in a high, nice spot. So I stayed basically an entire round sniping mainly enemy medics and officers!

Additional information: Tank was camping our main, staying just outside it on the North side of the Bridge. SL was Spotter, and we were the only ones not pinned downed at main. I sniped one of the Crew who got out and fiddled with his field dressings, whilst my spotter asked the CO for an artillery barrage. Long and short of it, probably the most constructive thing a sniper squad has ever done for their team:razz:!

Team:Cheinese
Location: (Exact coordinates if possible) Village-On the hills west of it.
Marksmen/Sniper:Sniper
Approx. Distance:250m
How long the bullet took to hit the target:.5s?
Additional Details:

We set up a sniper squad for Qinling (Whatever it's called, has the big lake in the middle). We hit the hills west of outpost and were reporting on details. I made 2 snipes across the lake on guys building an FB. Soon after, 2 snipers on the other team actually came up near us, but we managed to eliminate them before they saw us. Down in the village there was an enemy squad, but we could not quite pin the location. I saw an officer standing in the middle of one of the courtyards to the south, so I took the shot. He dropped, 3 seconds later a medic ran up, dropped him. 3 seconds later another medic ran up, dropped him. 3 seconds later somebody dropped smoke and went to pick up a medic kit. Unfortunately for him, the location he decided to hide in was actually just to the right of the smoke, so I had a very narrow view on him. Killed him before he could heal the squad. The other 2 guys were taken out in the main courtyard by my fellow sniper...

Was a very epic sniper moment!

Distance: 740-750 meters (according to marker target)
Story: Me and the squadleader staring at this guy running about in the bunker compound. I had a marksman rifle, so i took the shot, after a mag'n' a half i managed to hit the guy on one well aimed shot right in the head, as he was moving in a straight line towards some containers. Was greatest laugh ever. :)

with the sniper i did a 800shot on Kashan as US sniper on the same ridge on a guy in deployed AA.

EDIT: ( Infact i did alot better later on, heres a lil vid YouTube - PR 0.8 Sniper (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUqiUe_k2oo) )
