hey i haven't really messed around w/ the sniper rifle much, but the times that i have, its been quite difficult for me figuring out just how much i should b leading my target. it also doesn't help me that theres no dust trail to tell me roughly how close i was...so any advice per long range sniper rifles would be great....thnx

when i used 2 snipe people. i found that you can't put the crosshairs on someone that is running
and fire because it would miss. so you have 2 aim in front of them alittle bit and then fire.
but now everone has heavy armor and 120 life, so your best bet is a .50 caliber.
and if i can remember,the .50 cal leaves a trail when one fires it so you can see where the bullet hit.

dude sniping is so easy  dont lead them too much half and inch maybe a quarter..very small lead. as misfit said most people have heavy armor and 120 life..honestly it all depends on ur personal play ...if i snipe i MAKE SURE i have the auto pistol on hand...second .50 cal with variable scope. so im able to see far away and close up without problems. if ur not aiming for headshots and you are on open fields then the first sniper would do with a decent scope less recoil and faster shots. the mid sniper rifle is good for headshots high scope it has a steady aim but decently slow fire rate. match one that plays ur style i like being up close hence why i always have the autopistol

Back when I played MAG, I didn't really snipe all too often, since I'm a noob running around with a  heavy machine gun and rocket launcher (sometimes claymores and grenades)  I love rigging the  enemy snipers' sweet spots in the SVER map with Claymores, then seeing their names occasionally pop up on my screen.

Are you Valor? I don't use the AR but most people like the 2nd tier AR (SFCR-LW) with the 4x scope. I use the shotgun and the LMG because I suck. Another good AR is the 1st tier sniper rifle (MK14). It's only semi-automatic and has a 20 round magazine but it's pretty powerful and easy to use close range un-scoped.

Nah, I'll just stick with my heavy machine gun and rocket launcher whenever I have Heavy or Medium-Heavy armor, given I ever play again.  I am Heavy Weapons guy and the whatever it's called (version VIA) is my weapon.

Yeah, that's my problem too. If you don't get head shots then you have to use a lot of ammo. You can try the SMG but you'll use a lot of ammo with it also. It reloads faster but seems less effective now against the super heavy armor. Plus it has less range than the AR. Try the shotgun. It's only good fro medium to close range but only costs you 400cc in weight. You can use the bulldog armor (800cc) and a sensor jammer (600cc) and still carry a med kit and grenades. The LMG is always nice to have also with the 100 round mag.

Increased health.  If I remember correctly, it's one of, if not the last ability you gain in one of the ability groups.  I haven't played the game in some time, so excuse my forgetfulness.

It's in the last item on the Atheticism list (the first item is Impact Damage Resistance). 5 skill points to get it. Happy Hunting
