    Semi-Auto Sniper Rifles are terribad

    Seriously. They don't have enough ammo and don't do enough damage. Only the smallest mooks get killed by a headshot. The elites take nearly three even when unshielded; That's beyond moronic. Sniper rifles either need to do more damage or get more ammo. As it stands, there's no reason to use them over a Heavy Carbine.

    EDIT: Let me clarify here; The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifles are fine. They do more than enough damage for the ammo they have. My problem is specifically Semi-Autos. Their damage to ammo count ratio is way off.

    Rule #346 of shooter game design: P=A+R*V. That's power of weapon equals ammo count plus reload speed times availability.

    If there was a weapon that could one shot any mob. Then that'd be the only weapon you'd see used in this game. That would be bad for balance and longevity.

    Agree about the ammo. However the rest of it... disagree. They do significant damage with the right mods and perks. What I would like to see is a frigging silencer/stealth mod for them. So I can take out 2-3 enemies before the come running at me guns blazing.

    To be fair, the sniper rifles are so bad that I haven't even bothered and usually I'm that guy that hides in the bushes and only uses snipers.

    I've been doing fine with them, I can one shot most non Tanker esque enemies. Some Tankers I can one shot, but most take around three shots.

    When the game functions as expected, maybe, but because of lag, inability to reload, sometimes I can't even shoot, for me there's no point in using them.

    Ever play Earth Defense Force: IA? The last guns you unlock one-shot anything hundreds of meters around, including teammates and most bosses!

    And that's probably why I've never heard of it before.

    I routinely one shot mobs now, hitting them in the head is normally an instant kill.

    Only problem I see is ammo, Im chasing down lvl 10 in auto sniper and its depressing how fast I can burn thru it all.

    Bolt action are good and powerfull, a nice headshot crit does what I expect.
