I used to seriously hate sniping/snipers in CoD4.

Until I forced myself to do it for the challenges lol. Now, I love sniping, it's super fun running around with a sniper rifle w/ acog.

So, do you guys like sniping?

Sniping worked good I thought (and it was easier to do for me than other games).

#3 Posted by ChocolateCoffin (201 posts) -

The M40A3 with the ACOG is pretty effective.

I'm okay at it, not great but good. I love using the 50 cal

I hate the sniping

#6 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

At least it's much better than Bad Company's...

I think sniping in COD4 is garbage. The levels are too small and I don't really think that sniping feels...idk, right.

M40A3 is what I use and I use it all the time.

I've had almost exactly the same experience actually. Hated them before, but now that I enjoy doing it myself, I don't mind it as much. I still prefer regular guns though, but I break out the sniper rifle on certain maps.

I don't like CoD4 for sniping, but the Barrett is damn awesome.

#12 Posted by zeus_gb (595 posts) -

Sniping is OK, it's not my kinda of thing but I do use sniper rifles now and agin.

#13 Posted by RedSox8933 (2428 posts) -

i only snipe on certain stages.

#14 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

The fact that you can run around and snipe is what pisses me off. The game is trying to be super realistic and then you can run around shooting your sniper run and gun

Sniping is fun, I just hate it when games either make it too easy or too hard/boring. In Cod4 it is so hard to snipe when you have 25 grenades, an air strike, and a heli on you at all times.

Its satisfying killing someone far far far away

#17 Posted by Valentine (36 posts) -

Gets boring when like half of the team starts using em though, makes the game suck, same happened with COD2. BF Bad Company is worse though, sniper fest.

#18 Posted by Dauragon (554 posts) -

I feel like I would be a better sniper in the PC version. I cant snipe for shit in console FPS's.

#19 Posted by alterbridge9 (48 posts) -

I like killing another sniper! R700 al the way!

#20 Posted by NinjaMunkey (204 posts) -

Killing another sniper is fun. Its also good when you manage to get someone sprinting. I only snipe in overgrown and block though.

#21 Posted by Nobility (295 posts) -

Sniping is fun if you have the patience for it...and the right map.

Yeah, R700 is a real mans sniper rifle.

I love snipers because they usually mean easy kills for me with my play style.

I like doing that too, nothing is better than killing a sniper with a knife.

I can't understand why people use the ACOG. It's a sniper for a reason. Don't turn it into a single shot rifle with an ACOG.

#25 Posted by Hef (1140 posts) -

I'm like you. It took me a while to get used to the massive amount of swaying the scope does even when you're lying down. But now that I've learned how to time holding my breath, it's gotten much easier. I love sniping on Overgrown. So many good positions.

#26 Posted by 111GREEN_RANGER111 (169 posts) -

i tried and failed :(

#27 Posted by SlayingShogun (257 posts) -

I love sniping in this game. not doing it so much now because im trying to complete the other challenges

#28 Posted by JJGIANT (755 posts) -

COD4 sniping is so easy compared to most games

#29 Posted by FoolInjection (206 posts) -

I used to only really snipe on like Overgrown and the container ship level that the name of escapes me right now.  Any other levels I've tried it on I seem to get blown to bits pretty rapidly.

Never really had a favourite sniper rifle as you had to use them all to clear the challenges.  I think probably thought it would have to be the Dragunov.

Oh how the tables have turned, lol. I'm comfortable with sniping, but certainly not good at it.
#32 Posted by AaronBelfast (1491 posts) -

Sniping is way awesomer than runnin' n gunnin'. You get more satisfaction from dishing out a headshot with a Barrett

#33 Posted by LuffyUzumaki (453 posts) -

#34 Posted by x3ar (236 posts) -

#36 Posted by Homer (1372 posts) -

Snipings great, I love using the dragonuv.

#37 Posted by SimpsonFan (341 posts) -

I snipe every map almost. I am good at it and to me you are the most skillful if you can snipe.

#38 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

Shitty snipers are hilarious. 

#39 Posted by Subway (971 posts) -

I hate sniping in most all games, so boring.

#40 Posted by Relys (984 posts) -

The maps are way to small.

#41 Posted by filiwian (249 posts) -

I'm best with the Barret 50. Cal.

#42 Posted by Bloodbath (85 posts) -

I suck at sniping, so I never really do it.

#43 Posted by pause422 (6201 posts) -

I love sniping, mainly use barret 50, Best scores are always sniping.

#44 Posted by armaan8014 (5416 posts) -

Sniping was cool in that past mission where u assassinate the guy as price

#45 Posted by FuzzYLemoN (1600 posts) -

The maps are too small in CoD4 to really make sniping feel right. And everyone hosting Hardcore servers doesn't help snipers last long either. -_-

#46 Posted by Quadrifoglio (816 posts) -

I suck at sniping, but it so satisying to hear that "PING" sound when you get a headshot.

What? Some of the levels are really big.
#48 Posted by Xeros606 (545 posts) -

i went through a sniper phase myself. but now i mostly use smgs.

#49 Posted by Demilich (2598 posts) -

The maps are too small, and all the guns are too accurate to Snipe in CoD4.

#50 Posted by DuhQbnSiLo (2139 posts) -
