FERREX while you are here, SniperFight needs a fix

Fist i would like to say, if this has been posted before, i am sorry for not using the search bar. Ok lets get down to the topic at hand. I have played plenty of Sniperfight the two days Reach has come out. One thing that i have noticed is that allot of people i found a way to "cheat" in this game type. The reason i put "" around the word cheat is because the options in the game allow this to happen. Now, what am i really talking about? In these two days i have noticed players picking up and using fuel rods (dropped by grunts in the first wave) to get top score over and over again. Since any weapon a player uses will have infinitive ammo, they "cheat" the game to gain point, and therefore even extra Cr. The reason why i believe, and think you should also believe doing this is cheating, is because the game says [u]Sniper[/u]fight. Its implied that the only weapon you should be able to use is the Sniper Riffle (and pistol as sidearm). My solution to this: While i was looking around in the custom FF options, i noticed that their is an option to not allow weapon pick up. By disabling weapons pickup, all players can use are their spawn weapons. That way we wont have to deal with the one guy who is bad with the sniper, getting the top score all the time. Hope this catches Bungie's eye -yeskezspanem PS do the same with Rocketfight. [Edited on 10.01.2010 7:08 PM PDT]

  • I usually pick up a carbine whenever i play sniperfight, you may think it's not fair/unjust or anything really of using other weapons but than think about the fact that you would have a hard time against some enemies with only a sniper and a pistol.Especially on some maps like corvette where you're in a terribly small environment one that isn't favorable for a sniper.

  • In my experience, as long as you're good with the sniper, you're still going to win. I don't think I have yet got second in sniper fight and I never picked up a different weapon. When a lot of times others kids WERE picking up weapons. If you care that much about getting 1st/the cR then pick up a fuel rod, if you care about having fun and using the sniper because it's awesome, then get better with it, or get 2nd (or 3rd or 4th)

  • If you want to get all serious, then they should rename team snipers to team magnums or get rid of the magnums too.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] yeskezspanem [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dont Ban Me Bro OT: Maybe we could also disable the use of vehicles. Seeing as they could also be abused.[/quote] Interesting idea. Though i have not seen players using a vehicle for more then 1 min before it gets blown up.[/quote] Maybe forge out all the other vehicles and replace them with mongooses. Can this even be done in a way that you can only drive one vheical and not all?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] The Elusive Lynx I think it depends on the map. I'll admit I've used the fuelrod before, or I'll end up running around and pistoling everything. I'm not too great at quick aiming, but on the map with the two anti-air devices I used a sniper on there and didn't pretty good. You get bonus points for getting headshots and one-shot kills, so the points can really add up if you do use the sniper. Especially when they all come from around the rocks you can fire off shot after shot and get multikills over and over[/quote] All FF maps have large open areas, Not to mention spawn killing the enemy is really easy. Maps are not the issue, the weapon system is. Im with the OP on this one.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] benh66 Are you saying you want to only have the sniper and pistol and be unable to pick other weapons up or just to get rid of infinite ammo for all but sniper and pistol?[/quote] The OP wants the Picking up of weapons to be disabled. Keeping the the unlimited ammo is necceary for sniperfight because there's no ammo to be found else were.
