snipers need serious help

I mean, seriously... Snipers are really weak currently compared to other classes, I ve been playing my sniper for 2 years now so i am very expirienced, it realyl needs to be boosted and heres why

We cant kill anyone with half a braincell because they take advantage of objects, they can interrupt our skills simply by hiding behind something while leaving dots on us or they can just escape if they were far enough and we cant really move throught he entire enemy line to get him...

Cover has the huge disadvantage of not letting us move, so anyone can just try to run away from oru range and its over, if we move we lose our cover advantages and die relaly easy, and nto to say we lose our entrench abillity..

I propose that all sniper skills should go through objects but just do 66% of their total damage

Two years, really. Game launched in December 2011?

We dont need anything. Bountyhunters could use an improved anti-stealth tools in this game as this in turn could make our life easier.

Snipers are in a good place overall, not over the top or underpowered.

Snipers seem fine, as long as you play it right, you'll probably be putting out the most damage in any match. Commandos and Mercs are the only class that probably needs something right now, and its not damage or survivability either, they just need more utility that they could bring to a group (like giving out group buffs, more CC or an interrupt).

Snipers are fine. Whoever suggested lethality... OP is obviously a newbie. Newbies are better off sticking with marksman. Lethality is more complicated than marksman... its just lack of the *** SUPER BURST power that every newbie is looking for.

Even if he learned to play lethality and can now move around and pew pew people he will complain how come he cant move around and use explosive probe + ambush + snipe spam.

OLOLOLOLOLO.....!!! Snipers/GS are the best rangers i've ever met in MMO. It's perfection itself. Play a commando and then try Gunslinger/sniper. Feel the difference. Gunslinge is god of WZ if you know where to cover and what target to choose. L2p bro, l2p.
