It's all a matter of perspective really, if you're close quarters then you may as well go with the automatic sniper rifles like the SVD. (or even a assault rifle if you're doing that, the SVD/Type88 give away your position too easilly for my liking)

M95 when you feel the need to kill people in helicopters and humvees.

L96A1 for when you absolutely, positively have to kill every muthafarker on the server.

There's nothing wrong with the M24, infact it's a very good rifle. It's just the L96A1 with its wafer thin (just one more sir) sights edges it out.

Hold down the fire (mouse) button when you shoot. Rather than clicking, it will show the hit indicator then. Then release the fire button to chamber the next bullet.

I wish i knew.  Unfortunately i'm a poor judge of distance by the mini map, and they don't provide us with a distance on kills.  If i had to venture a guess i would say around 350 meters.  My standard operating distance isn't typically all that far from the action.  I just make damn sure when i fire i'm going to hit and likely kill.  Aim for the head.  Shoot at moving targets or multiple targets only when you've become bored with life/position.

m24 is good but scope sights are too fat for long range u almost have to be long range but i know alot of good spots on Sharqi and Mashtuur i went 16 and 0 on Sharqi but a helo found me lol i was 500m from a flag in Kubra Dam thats how i knew im usually 150m to 300m depending on the fog in the map

the M24 seems to hit right where you aim it, not like the M95 or L96

so on SF i go M24

I like the l96a1, but they are all good in their own way, really.

I'm unsure how far this is, but i'd say it is my typical long range kill. The guy was moving in and out of the draw distance. Just at the point I killed him he moved outside of the draw distance. He was where my crosshair was pointing.

A good tactic if you're on a map with water is to snipe from a boat, take out a boat alone.. go into the third position in the boat and snipe from long range. Most people (except snipers) won't see you.

Although don't use this tactic if the other side has a good commander or any good pilots.

The commander will notice the stationary boat and drop artillery on you and the jet pilots will strafe you to hell.

Huh, would have figured it would be longer than that.

That said, a good way is to kill people in the gunners position on vodniks, humvees etc. For example, vehicles will still be drawn whilst people won't.. so for example, shooting someone in the gunners position of a vodnik.. you'll see the turret moving around but it will seem as if the invisible man is there. I've gotten a few kills that way, shooting them outside of the soldier drawing distance but not the vehicle drawing distance.

Back to the original post, I'd say the L96 is slightly easier to aim than the M24, but there's really not much in it. It depends on what other unlocks you have.

I've never really agreed with polls like these, because each rifle has its own distinct strengths and shortcomings:

SVD / T88 - Less Accuracy due to higher shot deviation (even w/ magnification)

M95 - Accurate, excellent cockpit cleaner ( )

M24 / L96 - Same accuracy, sight configuration more ergonomic w/ L96

ACCURACY SCALE

Low                                   Medium                          High
SVD       T88                                            M95             M24  L96 (a bit ahead)
I prefer L96 as my specialty is infantry, and I rarely have an opportunity to tag a pilot. The M95 can be loads of fun on Sharqi bc of the Vodnik people who like to park and then get in the gunner hatch to cap a flag. PS - the cobra taking off is a sitting duck on ShP.

I vote L96 as per my preferences

Nope, why would I lie?
I shot him at the helo pad from the top of the 500+ft. mountain.  It was at least 700 meters, minimum but I thought it was farther than that.

There are only 2 different accuracies for the sniper rifles: 0.01 (SVD, M95, Type 88) and 0.005 (M24 and L96A1).

http://wiki.bf2s.com/weapons/comparison

I prefer the higher one, taking my time, keeping the distance and going for headshot. The drawback is that if I don't headshot, the guy will find cover very quickly. The lower damage of SVD often let me take several shots of the victim.

If you're going for the infantry kills, the L96A1 is the best by far.  The only choice when you're going to snipe airfields is the M95.
