Why do people prefer the DSR to the Ballista?

Ballista is better if you can actually aim

How is the Ballista better? It shoots negligibly faster and the only place the quick ADS time takes effect is quickscoping. Quickscopers already use the Ballista.

I don't know who you play against/with, but out of all the people I see who quickscope, only a small fraction uses the Ballista.

It doesn't matter if your aim is good with the Ballista.
Player movement coupled with lag on either side causes too many hitmarkers.

This is why even when quickscoping, the DSR is still better.

People prefer DSR for the OSK it's just so much better.

I myself prefer the ballista the scope in time on the DSR feels like an eternity

Too many hitmarkers due to lag. If the DSR hits normally they die, and if not the second shot does them in. The Ballista I've had entirely too many hitmarker when the smoke trail goes through the users throat.

My aim is fine since I'm using a KB/M.

Yeah. The DSR is a OSK damn near every time.

Though since I got diamond for snipers, I have used the iron sight Ballista almosy every time I want a rifle. Its so sexy, I don't care about the hitmarkers I get.

Massive OSK different.

Even the silenced DSR I believe has a bigger OSK zone.

I've gotten like 1 hit marker my entire time with the DSR and I have it gold.

I like all four sniper rifles. And I'm good with all four of them, too.
