I think that I got what you're talking about. I was thinking that, like you said, the sniper attachment would be for really long range battles, where you can't even really see your enemy without using a scope, of course the levels would be much larger and longer (still, there'd be lots of close combat). The DC-17m blaster rifle would be like three shot kills rather than thirty, lol. The blaster attachment would also have a scope like in the book. When you zoom in, the quarter of the sight that an enemy is in would flash orange(I think) also like in the book. You could choose to zoom in with the little sights like in RC1 or you could zoom in with the scope.
Does anybody like these ideas?
