If you prefer semi-automatic SR's I recommend you to wait, earn 45.000 credits and buy M110.
M14, SVD and M110 are pretty much useless without extra ammo and they are not to fun play with if you can't "spray" bullets and you have to "spray" a lot with them, they are like pistol with scope.
Sounds to me like you need more practice. I do rather well and often better than most with the lowly M14.
That said, you shouldn't be "spraying" bullets unless you're firing full auto with an LMG or assault rifle. If you need to spray to drop targets, you're playing the wrong class. Period.
Sounds to me you didn't understand anything I said. When I say "spraying" with semi-automatic SR I mean shooting/firing fast, really fast. If you have still target you go for a headshot and 2 body shots (it depends if he'll start to move or stand still). If the target is running, you need to "spray" since you need 4-5 fast shots to take target down and there is a big chance you'll miss 1-2 shots (if he tries to dodge the bullets, jumping and moving left and right). Since advantage of
semi-automatic SR's are their ROF trying to make headshots is just slowing you down, especially if the target is running. You "spray" 3-5 fast bodyshots, target down.
Connecting LMG or any other automatic rifle spraying with semi-automatic sniper rifle is utter nonsense and that's why I put quotation marks on spraying. Period.
There's a rather significant difference between "spraying" and firing precise shots in quick succession. If you're firing that quickly at a ranged target, you're doing it wrong. Despite the nature of these weapons, they cannot accurately hit a moving target when fired in the manner in which you speak. Best to make your shots count and fire them in a fairly quick cadence instead of just firing wildly and hoping you put shots on the mark.
Your word selection was poor in that sense, but I see your point all the same. Connecting "spraying" with LMGs and assault rifles is a logical correlation, quotations or not. Make your point succinct and leave no room for ambiguity.
Shooting with semi-automatic SR's compared to shooting with bolt action SR's is "spraying". Since you have to aim with semi-automatic SR for every shot there's no room for thinking that "spraying" in the context I mentioned it can be connected to spraying with automatic weapons (shooting all over the place). It can be connected, put in correlation, only by narrow minded people and I believe that 99,99% of all people can understand what I meant by "spraying".
I think you got it all wrong. The most common mistake people make playing with semi-automatic SR's is that they shoot too slowly, 1-2 shots per second instead 3-4 giving a chance to the enemy to react, turn around and shoot at them and most of the times killed them, especially when they go against Recon who has a bolt action SR (his one headshot - you are dead). You should always go for a headshot, then 2-4 fast body shots (less aiming = less time) not giving him a time to react, it depends of a situation...the best scenario is 2 headshots. Since semi-automatic SR's make small damage the WHOLE POINT of using them successfully is to fire as fast as you can because the only advantage you have is their ROF.
If you can't handle them, if you are slow, slow at aiming, slow at firing, you are doing it all wrong and you'll suck with them always.
Also, don't start me with the right use of words since English is not my native language, I speak 6 different languages and remembering all the fancy words is a waste of time for me.
