I see a lot of people using the M95, but I use the L96a1 all the time. Some people also like using the regular m24.

Which one has the best accuracy/ least drop.


Also can anyone help me with the drop? I aim a lil over their heads and I cant seem to get a kill. For example on Wake Island, When they are at Artillery Island and I'm at the right of the island trying to pick them off(im chinese). Any tips?

that would be the M95 i think, strong bullets, least drop, but the thing is the crosshairs are thick so its hard to aim distances

Its just practice you will work out the distance needed on each shot,depending on the range.

I prefer the M95,i only normally use the l96a1 for long long range shots otherwise 95 all the way.

Depends on the situation. M24 for accurate shots at long range, Same with the L96 but I like it better as a weapon for extremely long range(In PR 1000m and up and yes i have gotten a kill on kashan at that distance) And it's great for killing passengers in heli's, M95 Sniping people out of heli's and best weapon to learn to snipe, Svd and Type 88 city combat and cqc marksmen combat(In PR)

I love the M95 at close range, but any sniper rifle is fun to use depending on circumstances

I prefer the SVD

M95 comes second

then M24

L96A1 is too strong, i dont use it so often.

L96 is too strong?  Its an M24 with thinner crosshairs and a disturbing tendancy to have dud bullets that instead of doing all but two bars of damage to unarmored soldiers it does the amount of damage it would to an armored soldier...  For some reason it just happens more often with L96 than with the M24

I use the M95 if I want to cause damage.  I use the L96 when I want headshots.  It evens out.

Svd

after is L96A1 or M24, depends on how I'm feeling

I started using the Type 88, man people really get angry when you killed them with that or the svd

I prefer the L96 but use the M95 more. I like to camp enemy spawn and shoot people out of cockpit

Btw don't worry about bullet drop.. It's only very slight

YES!

I really hope that infantry only will be sniper free after the next patch.
Fight like a man and face you enemy!

But sometimes I feel like playing chicken sniper and then the L96 or maybe M24 is the best and as I feel the most accurate rifle.
In citymaps or SF the SVD is the weapon of choice...
And the discussion about most damage is just stupid...shoot them in the head and they are dead!
For long range you just have to get the feeling for where to aim.

I haven't sniped in a long while. When I did I preferred the L96 simply because it "felt" more accurate to me. I'm a wake whore and know the shot you're talking about in your OP and at that range there is definitely some bullet drop. Just keep trying and eventually you'll get the feel for the bullet drop at different ranges. I had it down rather well when I sniped a lot. However, now that I rarely snipe, I'm horrid with judging my shots. It's pretty much like everything else: Practice/Experience will make you better.

I use my M95 whenever I play on all teams, especially maps with helis. Sometimes I get lucky when those sneaky buggers try to cap flags, .50 bullet to their melon, makes me feel great, then they fly off, come back, blow me to bits with their cannon and I continue feeling normal.

When aiming for heads, I put the scope one pixel above the head, that compensates for the drop. I've headshotted an enemy sniper commander four times in a row with the M95. He'd always use the same place, even tried arty for little ol' me, and me inside the structure at the Main Entrance on Dalian Plant, I lived long there. Which is odd because a bush in a building is rare.

You have to lead the target, dumbass. Bullets take time to travel from point A to point B, ya know?

When playing vanilla: L96a1
When playing SF (Navy Seals/SAS): M95
When playing SF (rest of the bunch) SVD, 'cause of quick fire rate.
