i wouldn't mind seeing sniper rifles removed from the game, but then again, it isn't that uncommon for houses to store such arms. not counting the as50, of course.
either way, they are pretty lame (when you are on the receiving end). perhaps rocket could just make them shittier. for instance, hitting head shots at 800m with a cold barrel is sort of bullshit. also, laying in the prone for a long time should make you get cold, very cold.
but such a mechanic would suck - about as gay as the optics glare in bf3. i can't see them being removed, so, yeah. if anything, the reality of sniperfags shows how playing during the night could be advantageous. night just needs to be improved and i will embrace the shadows.

I was sniped once while I running -> going prone. Just in the middle of the animation. Right in the face.
I dropped my headphones and went outside for a while. Luckiest shot ever.
Me and manto played for a bit aswell tonight, logged on next to a deerstand. I checked it and he went in front of it with his binoculars out scoping out the next town. No sooner had i blapped 2 zombies with my m4 than amantus had caught a sniper round in the face. Looking back on it was funny as fuck. He was backlit by the horizon and everything, binoculars to his face. He couldn't have made it easier. lol
I did bump into someone on EU41 earlier, we were both hurting by the look of it, and looked at each other, decided it was better to NOT aggro all the zombies by having a shootout, and went on our separate ways.
Also, grats on the ghillie but it seems the newest patch has killed a lot of ghillies :S
Patch notes anyone?
Also the fuck are you saying about ghillies getting killed . There better not be a bad surprise when I get home.
e: regarding the sniper hate
I agree though, snipers are imba, but stay off my AS50

FAO: all the faggots hating on sniper rifles.
I recall reading something that suggested ACE had been contacted to incorporate some of its aspects into DayZ and basically told rocket to fuck off.
Also, has anyone with a ghillie suit managed to log in and not lose their shit or do I need to stick with 126.96.36.199 for a bit longer?
I have a ghillie suit and am also too paranoid to login.
i wouldn't log in. the servers are acting really fucked up, at least for my buddies and me. one dude logged out for a bit and was magically teleported from kozlovka to balota. was nice because it healed him up completely, but kind of disconcerting.

The l85 seems to have been removed too, but that's just coming from the massive whining on the dayz forums.
the zombie detection is definitely increased too. they see soooo much better now, but apparently their hearing was nerfed slightly. i guess you either crawl your way in, anticipate their line of sight somehow while sneaking, or go in guns blazing.
im not updating eu41 to 1.7.2 until a few hotfixes come out. shit it unstable and random gear being deleted
So after spending some time trawling the dayz forums, it appears the l85 has been replaced with the l85 acog. So you lose the thermal scope and gain the grenade launcher. Also *srs*, there are some major weird things going on with ghillies. People that have them and are logging into the new version find themselves invisible (to themselves, via 3rd person, no-one knows about to other people) and people that loot ghillies in the new version are finding themselves getting insta killed/teleported to the ocean. For the people that already had them, relogging to fix it seems to make it worse and either a) clears your inventory or b) respawns you automatically with newbie gear. LOL.
The patchnotes, as always, are fucking awful but it looks like ghillies have been flat out removed?

EDITEDIT: yeah rocket hasn't openly said anything on ghillies being removed, just that they're massively bugged atm and not to use them.
Lastedit: So while furiously alt-tabbing to forums and looting in the dark, I've found and planted 7 bear traps. Looooool, fuck this shit, i never wanted to go inside again anyway.

So EU41 is absolutely safe I take it? Never really been around during major updates
How do you downgrade?
Also haven't seen many posts on people that had ghillies or camos on before the patch. Still, probably not worth the risk.
