Sniper Bullet Drop?

Bullet drop for everyone.

In Halo we could ignore little things like bullet drop, because we were freakin' space marines, but I think that Destiny, with it's more gritty feel, should incorporate bullet drop in sniper rifles. Go to the link, you'll see that the almighty .50 BMG has to be carefully compensated for to produce a headshot. (There are, of course, lighter rounds that I have used in real life that have much less drop over medium distances) Now I suppose our Guardians could have scopes that compensate automatically (The military is already working on/has finished such scopes), but I think it would balance gameplay if only Hunters could snipe without drop, this would even out PvP a little more since we're assuming Hunters have much weaker armor than a Titan. I have no problem with people who are avid snipers, I use them a lot in games, and have gotten all of the death threat xbl messages to show it. Please tell me what you think, my opinion is narrowed by my own gaming experiences, and I appreciate any feedback!

  • It depends on the scale of the maps you're playing on. The only reason it exists in games like battlefield is for balance, some people think it's for realism. But in reality sniping would be too overpowered without it.

    • [url=http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2013/01/12000-auto-aim-rifle-turns-you-into-a-sas-sniper/]Read this[/url] The gun and the related article on it, pretty much calculates where you should aim based on range, bullet drop, humidity, and wind. And because of this being available today, I'm pretty sure somebody in the future world of Destiny, would also have a gun like this. So no, we shouldn't have to worry about bullet drop, if we can acquire a gun like this in-game.

      • Isn't Destiny set in the future? Bullet drop doesn't fit when you have a gun that shoots lasers IMO

        • After playing Sniper Elite V2 I actually appreciate the whole aspect of bullet drop and think it would be a fun addition to multiplayer games. No more 360 quick scope, auto aim assist. Then we would see who really is able to do what they think they are so great at.

        • I don't like bullet drop, and here's why. In a game, unless they implement a realistic way to manage your sights (as in Arma), you don't know where your scope is zeroed to. So most of the time, they just make the bullet arbitrarily drop after some point (which is not how bullets travel). And I really don't want to have to set my sights every time I get into an encounter.
