Firstly, the bullet never hits if you shoot at an extreme range, you see an enemy clearly in the scope and fire. Nothing happens. First when you get closer the bullet hits.

Secondly, the bullet cause quiet some momentum to vehicles (at least the raptor) It should be toned down imo. It is just a bullet after all.

Luckily for me, i prefer the Tech class over Ranger and Gunner. :p

The sound when you zoom, is that a bug too?


BTW also remember, when your farther away it will take more time to hit the target so maybe you need to lead abit further out?

Sniper rifle is hitscan, no such thing as realistic weapon ballistics in XMP - you only have to lead targets because of ping/lag. Try it out, start up a server with bots (no ping/lag issues) and snipe them from different distances. You'll notice that the SR has a pretty short range compared to U2XMP, IOW it's useless for long range :(

That's what makes xmp so much better then most fps out there, aiming is way more of a challenge then say...cs sourse where you spam shoot and kill, xmp it's lead and kill. That's just for aiming, dodging is another story ;) also it takes real skill to dodge and aim and kill, people are just lazy and dont wanna put effort into a game that requires this kind of skill so they stay with the "walk and shoot for an easy kill" where as like i said...xmp you dodge and shoot and if you're good on aiming/leading then more skill for you!

From the changelog: 03/01 Increased range for Sniper Rifle

Seems to be fixed.
