I love the L96 and the M98B. The last one is for the exteme ranges. I has a lot less drop over distance then any other Sniper.

m39 EBR.... never fails.

... and part of me likes the M40A5 for medium distance...

M417 seems to do the trick for me most of the time.

I also love the M98B for it's raw power.

M98B, perfect all around and don't have to waste time compensating for bullet drop

JNG-90 if I'm going 400+m sniping.
M417 for anything under.

M98B is actually the best of the bolt actions this moment like it or not. What's really fun is if you take the SVD with iron sights and pretend your a semi-auto assault :P

Even better, take the m40 with irons and pretend you're some kind of german assault trooper (with a laser ^^).

It's tricky and gives you a huge disadvantage (mainly supression) but nailing it and raping people really gives a lot of satisfaction.

m98b for long distance ( possibly guilty of camping :/ ), m417 for rushing objectives

edit: actually, scratch that, JNG seems to be better than m98 now.

i just dont get how people call a sniper hiding in one spot camping. Snipers are MEANT to stay back and stay in a spot while picking enemies off. Thats why they are there, they dont run in the warfare and just go guns blazing, thats what the other classes are for.

I use Snipers quite a bit. The SV98 is terribad, unlock the L96, that thing is crazy. You can dome people pretty easy. At least I do anyway. And if you find yourself in a bind and here comes a guy around a corner, then quickScope, yes you can quickscope with that gun more often then not...

In fact I just use that gun with the 8x and nothing else.

the 98b lacks capacity....

But lemme say....

dont throw an ac0g on there, or any other sight other than the 8x....
