They never made a variant like this. The closest thing they made to something like what you're desiring is what the medic currently uses, which is classified as an "Automatic Rifle/Designated Marksman Rifle".

I know (for now) that it isn't a sniper rifle, but the SVD is in the game and it isn't a dedicated sniper rifle. So maybe this gun (the "XM8 "Sharpshooter") will have it's place in the battlefield too.

The SVD is a real gun. The "XM8 Sharpshooter" is not a real gun, and never will be. The XM8 project was never greenlit, and so never went further than the prototype stage.

If we're going to start adding non-existent weapons to the game, my vote is for a Quake railgun, or something equally ridiculous.

but all the other classes have one gun from the XM8-series

The fact that all the other classes have an XM8 variant is irrelevant since all of the other class variants were actually MADE and tested.

There is no point to having a "sniper/sharpshooter" rifle that fires 5.56N since the round is weak when compared to other designated marksman rifles like the M14 and SVD. Those weapons fire a much larger and more powerful round than the 5.56N and are better suited for their intended purpose. Lastly, the 5.56N round is weak against armored targets and can't punch through most body armor unless it's the M855 solid cored penetrator round.

Made a new one ... because I couldn't sleep. Anyway, this one:
11/4 bullets/mags
3 body shots, one bodyshot one headshot to kill on medium range etcetc.

Remember that the weapons in the game is real weapons. They don't make new weapons.

IMO, it'd be better if they added suppressors to sniper rifles before adding any more. There's a nice balance between the snipers, the GOL is accurate but a little weak, the M95 is really powerful and long range but it is slow to reload and doesn't have much ammo, the L96 is really fast and accurate, but not as powerful and as long range-capable as the M95 (i'm only talking about the bolt-action snipers cos they are the only ones I use).

the trouble is when you shoot someone from a distance, they have a second of confusion, then they see the tracer bullet thing and they can instantly pick out where you are, so adding suppressors would get rid of the tracer, most of the noise, but maybe take 5-7 damage off, unless if it's to the head. it's hard to be sniper, because if you camp you get found by your tracer, and if you walk about your ass will be kicked if you get in a 1v1 with any other class...


I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
