Sniper rifle concept: The Three-peater

#1WarVeterinarianPosted 2/8/2013 10:36:52 AM(edited)
Reason: A weapon that rewards not missing shots instead of waiting to fully charge the shot. Also an attempt to make a high-DPS Sniper weapon for MvM.

The Three-peater
Level 1-100 Sniper Rifle

On Taunt: Toggle between Standard mode and Crit mode

+ Stores a guaranteed crit every time you land 3 consecutive shots without missing (toggle to Crit mode to use crits)
- No charging (only deals base damage on Standard mode)
- Cannot fire unless zoomed

Note: Shooting a building will not add to the consecutive hit combo nor reset it. Shooting a tank adds to the combo.

So you just body shot away at Heavies to farm crits, waiting for an enemy push and then bam, wipe out an entire team instantly

lol

This more or less. It's a nice idea to encourage quickscoping, but it shouldn't be so easy to build crits.

Maybe make it so instead of three consecutive bodyshots, you get a crit from three non-consecutive headshots (i.e. if you get three headshots in a life, kills or not, you get a stored crit). Maybe make it so you can carry up to three as well, so you can't hoard like 10 and murder everything at once.

And tank hits count as headshots for the purpose of stored crits. BANG! I make it look easy.

Thats when i stopped reading. Maybe its not terribad, but weapon ideas involving guaranteed crits usually are on this board. Also, crit on headshot is sorta the snipers thing as opposed to other (pyro) wacky crit schemes, and he is by no means not powerful enough as a class.

Because tunnel vision snipers are rarely useful.
