Please think about removing the 'greased bolt' as an option for the sniper. I laughed when I first saw this as an accessory.
At 3 points it's really steep for the little it does! Honestly any firearm regardless of it being used for combat or recreational shooting is going to be lubricated, unless the owner is of course a silly billy.
Lubrication is for protection against the elements out in the field not so I can cycle my bolt a bit faster. If I want to cycle a round into the chamber faster guess what, I'll cycle the round into the chamber faster!
Surely you guys can think of better Sniper options.
- Ghillie suit - 4-5 points. For general camouflage
- Binoculars - 2-3p. For marking possible fire support positions the Commander can use. Snipers/marksman often find themselves in high places..
- Stock Cartridge Holder (ammo pouch) - 2p - Again just another thing that seems like a simple no brainer. Most snipers are going to have this or something similar on their stock to decrease their reload time after emptying the magazine and remaining as still as possible while doing it.
I would really like to see that stock cartridge holder make it into the game for both Sniper rifles and shotguns.
