Snipers?

Recommended Posts

Yes sniper will come, so far we have designated marksman. But sniper will be a special role and will be limited to 1-2 per team

I understand the needs for an imposed limit but it's really frustrating when a player can almost never get their favourite gun. I just played PR for a week or so before buying Squad on Steam today. I was always stuck with the vanilla weapon and could never get the one I preferred. 

Is there no way to balance the game so people will naturally go for a diverse weapons loadout rather than artificially limiting them. I assume that ever a ten man squad all packed an M240 then they would be at a disadvantage against a squad the same size with a mixed loadout.

The current system is in place to promote a diverse weapon loadout in the game. If you just let people choose what they wanted without limitation you'd very quickly get things like 50% of the players choosing DMRs because it's a large map.

 

But on the topic of actual snipers with sniper rifles, not marksmen with DMRs, from what I remember they're super low priority.

Yes, they would be at a disadvantage, but without an artificial limit, you can be damn sure that squads full of MGs and DMRs would be a common sight.

 

If you want to enjoy Squad, you best drop all notions of a "preferred gun". You either take the role that the SL assigns you or the role that the squad most direly needs if the SL is too busy to micromanage. Vanilla guns aren't so bad, and you'll have plenty of chances to play with the more "exotic" weapons if you play the game long term.
