As much as I love sniping, I agree that it seems a little pointless to add another sniper. Here are the ones we have already:
DSR-50 - Very strong, but slower handling times. Long ADS and reload times, but you get OHKs on everything but limbs.
SVU - Pretty weak (only OHKs to the head in Core), but has minimal recoil and the highest fire rate out of any of the snipers to make up for it.
XPR-50 - Stronger than the SVU, but weaker than the DSR-50. Has more recoil than the SVU, though, and the fire rate is lower.
Ballista - Same power as the XPR-50, but gives up the semi-automatic aspect, and in return gets quicker ADS and reload times than the other snipers.
What would a 5th sniper have that would separate it and make it more/less useful compared to the other 4 we already have? Only thing I could maybe see is a .50 cal type weapon that would have the power of the DSR, but be a semi-automatic. Fire rate would need to be noticeably lower than the XPR, though, and it would need to have a long ADS/reload time as well...otherwise the XPR would be completely outclassed by it.

semi-auto sniper? Im interested to see how Plane works out. Hopefully its not just like 1 plane at an airport that no1 will ever really go in. Im hoping its new small map like Hijacked but like some sort of jumbo jet with multiple levels like cargo area, business, first class.
Like one of those Special Ops from MW3?
As long as it's better than Black Box, but not as camper friendly as Terminal, it should be fine.
Waiting for Mirrors Edge 2 and a new 'proper' Shining Force.
