    You gotta love the sniper rifle, but my one gripe is how slow it zooms in.

    Can someone be kind enough to tell me how to speed it up a bit.

    And is there anyway to zoom OUT as well as in? It's annoying to have to come all the way out if you accidentally zoom in too far.

    Hell yeah!

    Camper, Sniper, whatever. /~unreal/ubb/html/wink.gif

    I'd love to see someone call a real life military sniper a camper. I'd like to be there to see the snipers expression when someone tells him his role as a sniper is "lame." I don't see a difference in an online snipers role as opposed to a real life sniper.

    You dig in, take aim and drop your enemy from a place that is hard for them to take you out. Countless flag snatching enemies have taken my teams flag only to get dropped by the defensive snipers as they're trying to leave the base with it.

    I just wish more of the maps were open like that lava pit and rotating asteroid looking map. Perfect maps for sniping.

    Give campers all the credit they deserve. It's hard to find a good spot...

    Hmmmm...Hell Yeah if I could get this up and running. And If you can't tell the difference between a "real" life sniper and an online gameing sniper...well then maybe all those articles are right.

    I like how on CTF-Face there is always a bot on the very top of your base sniping away. Sometimes Ill hop up there and snipe away with him. Sometimes I'll send him on offense so I can do it all myself /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

    I think some clarification is in order. Like the term "hacker," the term "camper" is being misused.

    Sniper = Someone skilled with sharpshooting and long-range kills.

    Camper = Cheesy-*** bastard who camps (hence the name) by respawn spots and frags players as they respawn.

    Don't confuse the two, there's a big difference.

    yeah, i love ctf face except for one of the spawn points (the one outside on the side). Every now and then you'll get a lamer camper who will just aim his rifle right on the spawn point. I've been taken out twice in a row with this cheap trick, pretty lame.

    Otherwise, Facing worlds is my favorite map.

    Hey [77]BiTcHbOy,

    I can tell the difference between an online gaming sniper and a real life military sniper real easy.

    When an online gaming sniper puts a round through your head, you simply press the fire button and respawn.

    When a real life military sniper puts a round through your head, there's no coming back. Time for mom and dad to deal with the loss.

    My point was simply this: I get real tired of people refering to defensive snipers as "campers" and "lamers" because they're not out in the field running around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to frag everyone they come across.

    A defensive sniper plays a very important role in CTF. If you can't admit/acknowledge that, then maybe someone needs to write a new article for you.

    But I didn't start this thread to get into this kind of bickering. I simply wanted to know if you can adjust the zoom speed. That was all.

    I'm not a sniper rifle fan, really. They didn't make it zoom enough and they didn't make it zoom fast enough. Oh, if you want to "un-zoom" then just hit alt-fire again. If you find something that speeds the zoom up, I would be interested. I wish they had payed more attention to the sniper rifle in BLOOD2, although the netcode blows in that game, the action on the sniper rifle in single player is perfect for that weapon.

    I'm amazed at the response to my intial post. This is kinda cool.

    I love sniping, (and yes, Tribes DOES kick a**!) and I have great admiration for players who are great at sniping. I myself have to be totally honest and say... I blow when it comes to dueling/deathmatching. I'm a defensive player by nature. That is why I love CTF. It's hard to find players who want to defend and not run off like Rambo into the field, guns a'blazin.

    I find great pleasure in defending my teams flag. And I find that on certain maps, with open playing fields (Another reason Tribes kicks a**! OPEN MAPS. HUGE MAPS.) sniping is an important and much needed form of defense.

    The other day I held off enemy players on CTF-Face from returning the flag till my teammates could reach the flag and subsequently make the cap. It was great. They(the enemy)would come running at the flag on the ground and myself and one other sniper would pop their heads off their shoulders. It was truly fun.

    If that isn't great defensive sniping at its best, I don't know what is.

    Long live Defensive Snipers. Hey, I oughta make up a Defensive Snipers Guild.

    How's "DSG|Arokh" sound? /~unreal/ubb/html/wink.gif

    Well play all the time and only want the sniper rifle I get other weapons as back up. My favorite thing its to sniper from the enemy side. The Best team is one with a sniper and a guy who gaurds him as he is shooting to watch his back! Head shots are the best I can ever hit people with them at close range without zooming. Its a good head shot weapon. Anyone where who is a good sniper and anyone hear who thinks snipers suck, lets all get together tonight and play. Somone just deside the server and we can all hit it.!!! I will tear some people up!
