People just camp with Snipers and that's it, there's no actual interaction in shootouts.

It even ruined the fear element from faction RP, knowing that you can just camp your base with a rifle and pick out people like they're nothing with a sniper that legit 1 shots people.
There's no sense fear or regret, just get a sniper and camp your base.

Back then, when snipers weren't that common.

There's a very big sense of fear when interacting with other factions. I used to lead CDS and everytime we interact with a stronger faction like Sparta Battalion for example, we show a lot of fear during our interaction because we indeed know that these guys can destroy us in seconds and we didn't have snipers to camp in our base and cheese them out.
People just camp in their bases now and that's it. No sense of fear or interaction.


Plus shootouts were more fun and fair, it was always close combat with either AKs and M4s and it was a lot more fun that way and much better than just playing peak-a-bo with sniper rifles.


So yeah, remove them entirely or nerf the damage to 40 each shot so we can atleast compete with them.

I think if we make it ultra-rare loot should balance the issue, also deploying a sniper without proper RP is just terrible. If we can see a quality RP before, I don't mind it, but one-liners are a no-go.

Literally everyone's reaction after finding out they killed someone, but of his buddies have a sniper on them.
