I was thinking about some upgrades for snipers (not sure how many you can give one unit) how about
Snipers start out with like a .308 round that can easily kill infantry
Then they get upgraded to .50 cal rifle that can disable light to maybe even lightly armored vehicles

Yeah, we can consider TAOW to have three main types of sharpshooters:

- Scouts: Recon infantry, equipped with medium caliber DMR's - Designated Marksman Rifles;

- Snipers: Specialized anti-infantry infantry, equipped with precision weapons for anti personnel duties;

- Anti-Material Snipers: "Heavy Snipers" equipped with large caliber sniper rifles which can be used against light armored vehicles and "soft targets" at very long ranges.

There will be also other special operations variations (elite infantry with extra skills and specialized weapons).

Then another upgrade to say...depleted uranium tipped rounds that can (low probablility of success) take out armored vehicles and things of that nature.

Sounds interesting, specially when associated with these logics:

If anti-material snipers are going to have depleted uranium round as an upgrade
I do suggest that a fully ranked AM sniper should have 50cal incendiary rounds for even
greater effect on light armored vehicles and a possible small improvement versus tanks.

It's a great suggestion Thumbs Up!

Once Anti Material snipers are in game, we'll have to verify the impact of other ammunition types in the gameplay, if they pass, we'll include'em as a possible upgrade (possibly influenced by rank Cool! ).

i agree with Jarhead, snipers should come with a spotter.

The usa standerd sniper should have a cheytac m200 for long range shooting, poserbly upgradable with suppresser so its harder for human players to spot.

i have end war and i play it all the time. my mate is elite 54 on rainbow six vagas 2.

Thanks Olives,
I think it would also be nice to allow the spotter to upgrade to a SALH laser designator, to be used in conjunction with JDAM upgraded aircraft for precise and more effective bombing.

The PSG-1's military-based variant (the MSG-90) is likely to show up in TAOW Thumbs Up!

maybe the xm109 could be a possible upgrade for the anti tank sniper.
and a cheytac m200 upgrade for the anti personal sniper

Both the CheyTac M-200 and the XM109 ('M109' if used in TAOW) are very plausible candidates to equip American Class 3 sharpshooters (Snipers and Anti Materiel Sharpshooters respectively Cool ).

The M-110/XM-100 is a definite go.

Somewhat advanced, seeing how the M110 is basically a branch based off of the AR15 family (popularly known as the M16 family), like the SR25.

Well Basically the M110 is just remake of the SR25
It's based on it to be clear.

Will snipers have any special abilities, like demo, or radar jamming, anything? Will snipers come in teams? And finally, could I launch a sniper team from a submarine, and if i did would they have any chance at survival or will they be weaklings like in zerohour? Smile

Relating to Jarhead's question about would snipers come in teams.

I do hope if this is a choice they would spawn as 2 separate units rather then a single unit using the angry mob logic in ZH.

The "Spotter" should have different attributes then the sinper, accessible in the battle witndow at the bottom of the screen, so yeah, mob logic wouldn't solve the problem. I wondering if having a spotter in proximity of a sniper would increase the range and sight of the sniper. Allowing for the 2 to split up giving the spotter free reign to say... plant a bomb on a large aircraft, while being covered by his team mate. So yes, they should be 2 seperate entities that combind prove a deadly force. Something representative of an adtual team in the field.

Very possible, you can have the spotter as a walking frenzy or propaganda emitter, that would increase the sniper's weapon range and fire rate.

or some binocular ability that reveals an area for the sniper to pick off targets.

There might also be the possibility of using the Avenger's target designation ability in conjunction with the binocular idea, to specifically designate targets for the sniper, giving him an increase in fire rate and such.
