So what do you think the best sniper is on Black Ops and what attachments should be used with it? also perks.
This is for a map which is good to snipe on
It kind of depends on what type of sniping you're talking about. In general, the L96 is probably the best way to go based on it's damage output. It gives you the best chance for the one hit kill. The PSG isn't bad, but a tad less consistent than the L96. That being said, it is semi auto, so with a better fire rate, it's more forgiving for a first or second shot miss.
In my opinion, the WA2K and Draggy are both garbage, so don't waste your time.
I personally like the variable zoom attachment. I'll keep it on the medium zoom for normal range and quick scopes, but you have the option to click in one more time for that long shot you need to steady up for. Lots of people prefer extended mags, but I don't care for the standard scope on the gun, especially when I'm being mobile as it seems to block more peripheral vision.
Most people choose ghost when sniping, and I'll use that occasionally. More so to avoid a chopper or UAV if I'm doing more traditional sniping at a distance. Outside of ghost; hardline - scavenger - FJ are all good choices too, but really depends on your playstyle. If you moving around, you will most likely be killed by someone with an AR or SMG before you need the extra rounds from scavenger anyways, so the other options would be better.
I've been using steady aim lately, but that's also because I'm trying to get better with quickscoping. Gives you a better shot at landing the round if you fire too soon, and makes your cross hairs non aimed smaller, so you can get on target better. Also with pro, you get your gun up quicker after a sprint. Hardened is good too, especially pro, so you flinch less when being hit. That's nice when you really only need one shot to kill. 3rd perk is really up to you, but marathon and ninja are my most common.
Offensive sniping I'd opt for the L96A1. 1st link is offensive sniping and the second link is this particular snipers home page. Great stuff to improve your sniping. Oh yea, if you check out this guys home page most of his videos are w/out the ACOG but I still wanted to show the ACOG link 'cause it's one of my favorite styles of sniping.
If on HC then use the silenced draggy. Otherwise, L96A1 if you like teh BA, and PSG if you like teh semi.
Check out my sniping guide on here for more info but I personally like the L9 with vary zoom ghost, scout, and marathon for an unsupressed set up and suppressed Id go with the dragy suppresor with vary zoom ghost warlord and marathon
The more I play with it, the more I'm liking this set up for a mobile sniper class:
L96 w/ Emags and Variable Zoom
CZ w/ Emags
Stuns x3, Frags x2, Claymore
Ghost Pro, Warlord Pro, Marathon Pro
The extra tac and lethal nades are pretty great to have, and having the variable zoom gives you more versatility. Emags is nice, because you can go through 5 rounds pretty quick, and if you are close, that reload can be a bit painful.
Offensive Sniping L96A1 With Extended Mags, While using the l96 i use Lightweight, Steady Aim, Marathon.
Defensive Sniping PSG1 With Extended Mags, While using the Psg1 i use Scavenger, Scout, Ninja.
The psg1 is the best sniper, It has a semi automatic design which allows for quick follow through shots I would recommend ex mags so you don't have to reload often. The best perks are ghost pro, so you dont have to worry about air support going for you and you can hide in bushes without them spotting you. Scout pro so you can hold your breath longer if an enemy goes behind cover and pick him off when he gets out, and you can switch weapons faster if you are in a cqc situation. and finally ninja pro, for silent footsteps to sneak up on enemies and to hear them louder. Also I would recommend the cz75 with rapid fire or python speed reloader as a secondary.
it really does depend on your style. L96 is the best one in my opinion, and here are the different loadouts i would consider using.
L96 ext mags
secondary: any single weld pistol to finish off someone u get a hit marker on
equip: doesnt matter
Perk 1: Lightweight Pro- qs needs it to make cursor move faster and to escape famas and 74u noobs and ts needs it to jump off things
Perk 2: SOH or SA- soh for quicker reloads and ads and sa for easier noscoping
perk 3: anything really (i prefer marathon so i can run around)
Sniper Pro (regular scoping)
L96 w/ any attachment except for acog
secondary: pistols(dual weld or single)
equip: claymore or motion sensor
Perk 1: Ghost Pro
Perk 2: SOH or Scout
Perk 3: Ninja or Second chance pro (nooby i know but if u like to camp, u can get revived when down)
Hope this was helpful (:
