Share success as Sniper

Xtermanator 12-24-2005 07:11 PM

Hm... by any chance do you have Online? Because, snipers are the least used unit in the game. And sniping can only take you so far. You get little amount of kills compared to a Soldier class.

zerted 12-25-2005 08:06 PM

Sniping can take you very far.
Here's the best place I've gotten to:
It just takes some skill in long jumps to get up there.

I'm always a sniper on certain maps, and I usually manage to rack up a decent amount of kills. Ive gotta say though, Ive never managed to get to anyplace as cool as zerted's spot.

My personal favorite isn't a very hidden spot, but ive always been partial to the top of the hanger in Mos Eisly, you have a nice view of the entire city from their. Unfortunetly once you start sniping people usually notice your up there, and focus all their efforts on killing or avoiding you. So you've gotta stop for a while, lull them into a false sense of security before returning to your post.

Sometimes the snipers should find unusual spots. If I'm CIS on Bespin City, I'll run down the ramp and hide behind one of the columns/pillars. It's nowhere near as high as snipers like to be, but not many look down for snipers.

Snipe from the tops of the piers on Kashyyk

Snipe from the top of the extractor on Bespin

Snipe through the openings of the Derelict or use a flying vehicle to deposit yourself on top of the spire hill on geonosis

Snipe from the tops of the hills on Hoth

in mos eisley, get inside that pile of junk outside the cantina. That is the best/coolest one

This is an old thread, but I have to ask how you got up there. You mentioned grenades. I assume TK was off? But still, where did you nade yourself at?

zerted 02-08-2006 06:04 PM

Why should I share my well thought out strategies with you? Think about it, it takes more than one gernade...

I'm busy right now. By the end of the week, I might be able to post a like to a video showing how to do it.

Darth_Death 02-10-2006 10:14 PM

Zetred i respect ur opinion on not wanting to share ur strategies but plz dont share ur nonsense of why u wont share. this thread is to tell people ur strategies. if u dont want to share dont. i suggest u make a thread why u wont share...

JohnLocke 02-14-2006 12:29 AM

drth dth.....i think u mssd the point he dznt shar caz he doznt want 2
But thanks zerted, you said nothing....but enough to challenge myself. I will find it come hell or high water. (Or, come Tatooine or Kamino, if you prefer)
Actually, I assume if you're clones a jet trooper could get there. (No?) If he could, think of him as an unlimited rifle, with close to sniper accuracy.

toue 02-14-2006 10:43 AM

well if you can't i suggest the unlimited jet fuel for jet trooper mod it's dang useful even if you still can't zoom in for sniping

JohnLocke 02-14-2006 11:35 AM

Well I'm talking multi-player, and most servers I visit will ban you if you use that mod. Which is only fair.

toue 02-16-2006 01:31 PM

true that but then i never play multiplayer so i'm free :P

zerted 03-08-2006 08:54 PM

I haven't forgotten about this thread. I'm still planning on making a video, but I can't get FRAPS to capture sound... I'll post one with or without sound by next Tuesday.

Darth_Death 03-08-2006 09:02 PM

yay a video!!!!!!

JohnLocke 03-15-2006 01:15 AM

Thanks. I don't think sound is all important here. FRAPS should be set to your sound card by default, but it might be worth a look to see if it really is.

Darth_Death 03-19-2006 05:22 PM

I love to snipe gungans cas there so helpless just running around saying theysa trying to kill mesa!!!

zerted 03-20-2006 03:02 PM

FRAPS is set to my default sound card, but it won't capture the sound. You might have noticed I missd next Tuesday. My graphics card was damaged on the trip back to school, so that put me behind in many areas...

zerted 03-23-2006 01:12 AM

It is about 25MB, but the video is online. You have to download it from here:

In the first part, I'm shooting at all the places you have to go. In the second part, I'm going to all those places.

It is encoded with Xvid.

TSR 03-29-2006 07:53 AM

although highly unoroginal, the stadium on Mos Eisley is a kickass place. and on cloud city, anywhere is a succesful sniping place.

JohnLocke 03-31-2006 12:58 AM

After I got over my own frustration for not reading that you needed the Xvid codec......
That is a very funny, informative video. You can get to those places as a Jet Trooper, except the one you crawl down from. Maybe I should try crawling up......hmmm...
Thanks though. Good job.
(PS....Got any from BF2??....wink, wink...)

zerted 03-31-2006 03:29 PM

Many glitches (wallhacking and the non-wallhacking ones) in SWBF2 are too major to make videos about them. Many are one sided and give that team almost complete dominace on the map.

The easy ones most people already know or have seen, but with the more complex wall hacks, the hacker can cover the entrence and prevent anyone coming in after him/her.

JohnLocke 03-31-2006 10:53 PM

I wouldn't consider your video showing a hack or a glitch. It's not a "normal" spot and might be sneaky, but I assume you can be seen and killed up there. I think of a glitch as a place where you're untouchable unless the other player also gets in the glitch. I'm completely against that. I guess what I'm asking is if you found any unusual spots to hide or snipe from in BF2, specifically the maps that are new to it.

zerted 04-03-2006 08:49 PM

Yeah I have, but they aren't very good. I use the same definition for glitches.

biodragono 04-09-2006 09:52 AM

me on the pier of kassyk

JohnLocke 04-12-2006 01:00 AM

On what pier of Kashyyyk? If you mean the two jutting out from the beach, you're in danger of the ATST/AAT attacking that area.

Maverick5770 05-07-2006 02:10 AM

I like being the sniper, my record is 96. There are maps that sniping is super effective on.

Jaffa_Cake 07-09-2006 05:55 PM

I always move from place to place as a sniper, especially online as people get wise and snipe you back, so I don't have favourite spots.

Niner_777 07-16-2006 02:33 PM

^That's a very good tactic. I try to move around as much as I can.

Jaffa_Cake 07-18-2006 01:05 PM

Jumping around usually works, but sometimes it doesn't like when a jet trooper jumped in the way of my inacurate shot
