    I considered that. Ignoring item control, it's easier to stay away rather than to chase someone down right now. However, since you realistically will need to restack at some point, it becomes about evenly difficult to stay away vs. get in close range.

If you dont have around 35% accuracy with it, better choose another weapon. I am pretty sure only ~20% of players are able to use it effectively. (because it's only one "easy to use, hard to master" weapon).
    Because.. Sniper is a long range weapon? I'm not complaining about not being able to use rockets effectively vs. someone who is 100m away. You can still use it in close range if you have good positioning too, and the other guy won't be able to do anything. And if you are stuck in a close range battle, then do choose another weapon - who uses Sniper in point blank range?

    And I see some people hitting 50% with Sniper.. IMO that's way too high. That's what top players hit with Rail in Quake.. and that thing has a much longer reload and put down time.

      I never saw someone with accuracy like that. Even more - I checked statistics of sas and w members (so, top level). Highest sniper accuracy was 39%, lowest 32%, average 35%.

        Hmm dunno, maybe that was mixed in with other gametypes. I checked Rookie's accuracy after some duels and it was like 45-50.

          It's probably possible if he used sniper rarely, or just played with lower skill guys. Don't know. 50% is really much more than 99% players can ever dream.

            Well, even with 25% accuracy it still would be too powerful if Flak and Rockets were brought in line with where I want them to be. Right now it works only because Flak/Rox/Link/Mini are also so OP.
