    I've been following the game for a while and I think I'll install it soon, but a question first:

    I love sniping, how viable/good is it in this game and which faction could be considered the most sniper friendly?

    I love flying around in my Reaver, killing Mossies and Schytes that are specced purly for killing things on the ground. I love hunting them down with my tomcat missils and autocannon.

    I really suck in a dogfight, so if I meet someone else that are specced for air to air combat, I loose 4 out of 5, but I make up that by killing ten ground specced flyers before I go down.

    That would be Vanu. They do not suffer from bullet drop apparently.

    Sniping is great but don't make the mistake of playing a stationary sniper. You need to constantly be on the move. Take one, two, three quick shots (or only one if you use bolt action rifles, stealth and move to a different position). And unlike other games where you think you can go on to dominate an army on your own, boy you are wrong! There are two armies to contend against and infiltrators (the sniper/stealth class) are very weak and easy to detect. You have no defense against vehicles and any other class will outshoot you when spotted if you are still using stock weapons.

    It's a fun class when you keep in mind your weaknesses and strengths. Don't try to play it like TF2 Spy or the BF3 sniper.
    I'm still thinking about it...

    Vanu might not have bullet drop, but the damage has a diminishing return the longer the shot travel so I would not necessarily call them the sniper friendly faction.

  5. #1145
    I would go NC for long range sniping, theres no need to upgrade the default rifle, it's just too good. (imo). And NC is the true underdog as it is, which in my book always is a plus.

  6. #1146
    Can anyone tell me which upgrades my Reaver would need to make it most effective at air combat and which ones for the liberator to be a ground unit killer? Assuming thats a possibility for each vehicle?

  7. #1147
    Which Vanu sniper would you suggest to be the best?

    Yes we do.

    Vanu starts with a semi auto.
    NC starts with a bolt action.
    Forgot what TR starts with.

    They're all equally viable and depends on your play style.
    I prefer one shot one kill (headshots), some others prefer semi-autos.

    That's one thing I feel is missing from the first one, a tutorial/training section where you can try out any vehicle and weapon without needing the appropriate certs or resources.

    A friend of mine started playing yesterday so a few of us kept spawning him aircrafts when we could so he had a steadier supply for getting used to the controls.

    And how did you come to that conclusion? .

    Yeah, me too. Unfortunately, after looking around a little, Vanu sniper rifles are apparently not very damaging, so I abandoned the idea of being a sniper. I want a weapon that kills when you headshot dammit!

    Vanu bolt action still one-hit-kills on a headshot. It just does less body shot damage.

    Get the bolt action ones. The one I'm using is V10? I think, or whatever it's called.
    There is one issue with Vanu bolt action is your view gets obscured for a half second or so when doing the 'bolt' part. It's a bit annoying sometimes.

    How did you come to that conclusion? NC have been doing pretty well for my part

    Same here. NC is a far greater menace than Vanu. :P

    NC sniper is the best "out of the box" IMO if you're good at adjusting for bullet drop and landing headshots. Here's a quick video about the default NC sniper rifle and the LA80 (my favorite sniper rifle).

    Goddamned right we are. I've been having a lot of fun on Indar lately, seems like Esamir or whatever is just a waste of time. Never had anything resembling teamwork on Esamir, but I've had two straight days of cohesive, fun teamwork while running around on Indar. Best part was trying to hold an amp station when both terrans and vanu were trying to take it, turned into a hilariously bloody free for all when all three armies met in the middle.

    So how is this game looking. I'm hearing mixed feedback here. Can't decide whether its worth the download or not.
    I've walked the realms of the dead. I have seen the infinite dark. Nothing you say. Or do. Could possibly frighten me.
    We are not monsters! We are not the mindless wretches of a ghoul army! NO! We are a force even more terrifying! We are the chill in a coward's spine! We are the instruments of an unyielding ire! WE ARE THE FORSAKEN!

    Absolutely worth a download if you have a decent rig and your data cap (assuming you have one) isn't super low.

    I love it. You'll have a hard time finding a game that has a scale even close to Planetside 2, and you definitely won't find one that lets you romp over every single bit of it. I tend to play as light assault, and sweet jesus is it fun. The mobility feels great, and using your jetpack to flank the enemy and tear them up makes you feel like a badass. It's a class that encourages creative thinking in the way you approach a battle, definitely more so than the heavy assault. The learning curve is definitely a little steep, and the game has a certain complexity that might turn people off if they are only used to jumping in rounds of this years flavor of CoD.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's kinda rare to get some "action". Been driving around with my squadmates for 2+ hours capturing areas and I've maybe killed 2-3 enemies. Never met any resistance. I suppose everyone else is just kinda going where the biggest zerg is? *shrug*
