I congratulate you in recognising my superiority and choosing me to be your love pig!

The point is, you at least have some control over the death.

Rifle snipers sight and click.

Easier said than sighted – someone who strafes properly is really hard to hit, which is bad enough even when the Sniper isn’t under fire/near Spies.

If the sniper is any good, he’ll still get you. I hate snipers because you can’t do anything against them. There is no real counter to dieing against them.

I can’t be like “oh! he came from behind, maybe I should watch my back more.” and learn from the death.

Hell, VALVe has even stated that snipers make people frustrated because they couldn’t do anything against their death.

Exactly my point. If I die to a huntsman, I at least can figure out how I ****ed up.

Any sniper worth a **** can hit you, even with strafing/ducking. Like soldiers they’re supposed to lead their shots a bit and anticipate your movements. Scoped shots are frustrating because you don’t even know you’re sighted. You’re just dead like a bug on a windshield. Aliiiiiiiive*DEAD*

Also, the huntsman becomes less luck oriented once you learn it’s hitbox. It’s a smaller projectile, but still has the same hitbox I believe.

You were taken by surprise. If you take the time to check your back, someone else could be rushing at you from the front. If you do everything right and still die, your opponent was just lucky.

The same could be said for every clbum. Look at the Pyro, even after the nerf.

From my experience it’s all about mouse sensitivity. Too little and close range sniping becomes impossible, too much and all sniping becomes impossible. Even if the Sniper is predicting where you will go and you’re heading toward him, if you’ve made it to mid-range any clbum with 100%+ speed will outrace the default, which a lot of Snipers use. A good Sniper IMO would not try to snipe from this range, he would move and fine a better position farther away or select another target.

Streaks are really important :sarc:

Also you can view a close up of a big portion of the map.

With the zoomfunction.

This way, you can check the spawn of enemies, if its heavy, KILL IT GOD DAMNIT.

If it’s a spy, use teamchat to reveal his disguise, OR KILL IT.

I have to say, I’m not really a fan of the huntsman, but I’ve played against a few snipers who use the original rifle, and can still take out a moving, jumping scout no problem. Log in to see images!

We’re talking about 2fort, RED spawn, to BLU spawn. There’s times I haven’t been able to even get on the bridge. Seriously. Not even out for a second. Headshot.

I snipe like that when I’m on form (sometimes I snipe like a retard, other times really well…­)

The distance from battlement to battlement on 2fort is how they define “long range”, so it’s more than enough distance to not have close-range aiming issues.

Plus, scouts often jump from the battlements to the cover over the bridge on a line which happens to be right in line with the sniper on the opposite battlements… from their perspective your head is only moving up and down, very easy to hit.

Hitting folks at close range is more like… being stood at one end of the bridge and dropping a pyro as they run across it towards you with the flamer on. It can be done if your aim is good (and you’re in position to start with) but I would normally use Jarate and noscope shots rather than try to line up a headshot.
