Default Sniper Accuracy

Is it just me or in the Sniper kit VERY inaccurate. I did a test with the marksmen kit and the sniper kit. Marksmen: 4/5 hit Sniper: 0/5 hit.

Would you like in the next release for the sniper kit to be more accurate?

Press 3, and wait intill the breathing is over: makes it way more accurate (as long as you don't move the rifle)

I was getting 1-shot headshots at ~400m today. You have to take your time and wait for your shot. It's pretty hard to hit moving targets now, so wait til they stop. You should be able to trace their path ahead to see a nice bit of cover they're heading to, so wait there and then pop them when they stop.

Oh and your sig is too big. Rules, section 3

I find that for one rifle in particular (the Lee-Enfield) the accuracy is AWFUL, completely unable to hit a target at any range after ~250m, all other appear to work to some extent. For the other sniper rifles the accuracy is reasonable after the breathing. Some advice would be to reduce the sensitivity of your mouse and to bind a keyboard key to fire as even the tiniest movement completely destroys stability now.

Which is the Lee-Enfield? The MEC was the rifle I was using today and it was fine.

The pickup kit sniper rifle for the insurgents/ the militia sniper kit is the Lee-Enfield No4 .303

There is something seriously wrong with it, it doesn't even generate a suppression effect as it misses targets by such a great amount at distances of about 250m even after waiting as long as 15-20 seconds for stabilisation, will try to post a video...

Nah I think there's a serious glitch or something cause I would wait forever and not even move and it wouldn't hit accurately. I think I tried this with multiple rifles and I didn't check the ranges but they were around medium ranges.

It's just like when .7 came out. Shooting will just take some time to get used to.

It would be helpful to actually know the specs of each weapon in terms of stabilization time though (hint devs hint).

You know what I thought was funny?

I stood still in front of a hangar, 2 m away, fired my rifle unscoped, and hit 5 M to my right and 3 M up from where I was aiming. I actually had to turn and look for where the bullet hit.

They seem inconsistent, you get lucky sometimes, sometimes you don't.
