Anyway, sniper rifles are not all bolt-action (of course, that gets into a realism debate).
I know, replace the sniper with the Quake 3 railgun. That way, if you miss, you're never going to be able to live to take the second shot! (4 second cooldown time). Sorted, another class nerfed.
Well the sniper rifle is deadly at close range. Headshot is sooo easy.
Targeting Crusor? There is something called "tape a cross on your monitor"
