I rarely, if ever, seen a sniper being used besides the DSR or the Ballista. The XPR got a recoil increase why exactly?

I believe I have seen it one time in two days of gametime. This is just my experience but performance wise, the gun wasn't too amazing either. Good Semi auto but nothing we haven't seen before.

It now kicks worse than COD4's SVD when it decided to spaz on you. If they felt it was too good, simply lower the RPM. I would have been fine with this as it'd have made the gap between the SVU and XPR more significant, don't make the gun kick like a donkey.

SVU was left untouched in the patch. Do they feel this rifle is okay? It NEEDS to keep its headshot multiplier so it can kill when silenced, no reason not to. If you have Gold on this rifle, heaven help you, I question your sanity.

None of the snipers have any real strongpoints and it bothers me. Go DSR if you want power or go Ballista if you want handling. Seems like the obvious choices. Both the SVU and XPR seem very niche snipers now.

Did they fix the SVU's hit box issue yet?

Alright. I want to use the SVU but I wasn't going to use it until they fixed the hit box, and after awhile I forgot about using it lol.

They nerfed it to discourage spazzy snipers who tend to unload the whole magazine at one foe. Personally it's OHK is generous enough that I think the recoil won't make that much difference except for encouraging people to aim better pre- first shot.
Acceptance is the final stage to everything.
