I was one karbala using the marksman kit for US in the center tower of the main base, shooting at insurgents i look to one roof top see some people i fire kill one civilian (1) see a guy with a guy pop down someone pop up i fire twice he dies another civilian (2) more pop up so i say fuck it i start firing at them all I kill 6 more civilians (8) so i'm now like fucking scared of dieing because i'll have to wait so long. then the cache near the main is destroyed i go to the watch tower top level watch for insurgents kill 9 then i see someone running toward my tower i aim and fire miss he stands there looking around i fire again i hit him he pull out a medic bag, so now i know he's civilian so i fire again. somehow i miss first 3 shots then headshot, then comes a long wait i get bored and jump off the watch tower die and give up. giving me a grand total of 300 second (5 minutes) spawn time. so i get the marksman kit again and the round ends once i enter the city (well shortly after i'm in and my squad mate in the apache mows me down well i crossed a street). So in total i killed 9 civilians bringing my score to -948 points kills to 7 but i really got 16 kills, and the guys in the apache who didn't loss it once in the round killed like 6-7 civilians doing gun runs on cache sites.

So anyone else have a bad or fun time like this one were they kill a lot of civilians.

Umh not trying to insult you but that was really stupid to continue shooting them afer you new they were civies and proably cost your team a lot trying to regain that intel that you lost. With the apache guy I can see how he would kill them since u cant aim precise on runs but with a marksmen you dont have any excuses for killing a civie.

Just for my little story today I was running after a civie and chased him back to my squad just for a squad member to 3 shot burst him as I was about to arrest him.

Be more patient and actually check before you shoot.

at long range for me all insurgents look the same but considering that i killed them at over 300m with the US markman rifle thats pretty good even thou they were civilians but it does have some accuracy issues besides that it's better then the infatry rifle with scopes at range.

anyway shut up about my problem. get back to the topic.

Sniper on Ramiel, our squad had both kits. We were in the hills north of the base going to a flanking position after our position became compromised. A civilain came up on us, so SWEATINGBULLETS pulled his pistol out and kept him busy as I rushed in with my k-bar *for some reason I had that instead of a restrainer* I ran up on him, took one stone to the face and knifed him. Game then gave me the penalty. So I go on, we massacre a couple squads defending a cache before a technical comes up and returns the favor. We respawn and move in towards the cache after a mortar strike, Found another civi healing an Insurgent, SO I go to one knee shoot once, Insurgent dies, shoot again, civi dies. Penalty again. Ended up with the second long respawn after I turn and find another insurgent with my sniper kit, i knfe him, he turns around and kills me with the pistol.

Most insurgent kits don't have white shirts right now (I think collaborator, ambusher, and cell leader are the only ones). Even then you should be able to tell based on their posture most of the time.

I mean this in a hey you can learn something kind of way, not flaming you: It looked like you behaved like a "true sniper" on insurgency maps. Posting on a rooftop somewhere conserned with kills. I have yet to see a sniper or maksman who posts around a cache area, looking for points where the insurgents come pouring out a house or support the main advance towards a cache. Insurgency is not about kills. Almost like PR itself.

You should play with me. 36 hours as sniper (i've only been playing for a week :p) and a ground total of 15 kills. I spend my time on rooftops relaying info for squads down below and air support. In fact i think i stare more in my binocs than my scope...

Although, you're right we "recon" guys are pretty rare
