Well that's not always a case, especially for Opfor snipers. They have super powerful rifles like ASP-1 Kir and Type 115. Both rifles are good for close range combat. All snipers can easily enter the circle in their thermal protected ghillie and do the proper job if they want. But usually they choose to stay outside of circle to spawn kill defenders which have no chance at all to defend or to hear where the shots coming from. Because their rifles are so quiet they use it just to grind kills and play for the scoreboard and not for the team or the mission it self. We all seen it many times before.Grenadier wrote:best left as is. a sniper at close range without a silencer will immediately die from a rifle, he has no chance to shoot rifleman faster

I've been shot with silencer like 50m away and I'm totally lost of direction of fire. Can you really hear super sonic crack and point direction of shot from that? I can't hear that.

and it's fair

they can sniping from far range but not easy to spot them this is my idea cause i play many times with sniper with stealth ghillie+ silencer and i feeeeeel its very very OP and easy

The silencers only silence the shot it self. If beeing shot at (or the general direction) you still can hear the super sonic crack of the bullet giving you a very good hint on the direction the shot came from. Due to the missing shot sound you cant estimate the distance (the difference in time between shot and crack), but snipers only have limited observation spots in most places.
