First off, don't try it until you are used to this game, as it has a huge learning curve to snipe. Once you do start sniping, find the gun that works for you, and stick to it. I prefer the L96 over all but it's a matter of opinion. Also, don't be some useless sniper sitting in the hills missing every shot. Do what I do, spot everyone you see, take out objectives, pull out secondary in close quarters, and squad up with your friends so you can tell them what to do. I have a friend I usually play with and he rolls Assault and I roll either Engineer or Recon. We do good, and often take out the objectives.
Also, I could send you some more sniping tips in a message if you want? --- Do not explain the plot! If you don't understand you should not be here! Your money is now our money and we will, spend it on DRUUUUGSSSSSSS!!!!! - Mastodon
I also switched over from COD. If you want to play TDM or fast-paced action, I would stick with COD. What sets Battlefield apart are the vehicles and the need for teamwork in objective-based modes like Rush and CQ.
My advice would be to remember to use your kits often to help your team out. Also, spam SELECT and spot for your team. --- PSN: eezoBeezo (on Asia Servers) youtube: SirEezoBeezo(gaming), eugenebang(short films/variety), bangandjennie(Korean cooking show)
People tell you to spot the enemies. You do that by pressing the SELECT button while looking at the enemies. --- Trone_Colby: "Didn't you hear? Bad Luck is the best player in the world! I tried to add him but his list was full".
