He did. Actually, I'm thinking that post might have been sarcastic. The A-Tross is actually less accurate than the TORQ-9 in every way except when you're ADS and standing completely still.

NC is where the skill is. We don't have the best fire rates, but unlike you guys when our guns hit they hit like a truck... Not just that, in the hands of a skilled player, they're headshot machines. The 200 damage model on the god saw, reaper, and A-Tross tends to drop targets quickly. My NC15 Phoenix is a skill cannon. It does less damage, sure, but have I mentioned that you can set ESFs on fire with one hit, and that I can hit your tank while it's behind a corner? Oh, and ranged weapons. Sorry, my A-Tross is outsniping infiltrators at 100 meters, and despite my 498 rpm, I am still killing you at close range. Why? Because I am landing all my shots at all the right places.

I'm gonna just throw out there that, as a TR, my infantry accuracy is pushing three times better than yours: 6.8% vs. 17.6%. And that's not just because I snipe a lot, either; I'm more accurate with my CARV than you are with your SAW. So let's table the whole 'can't place shots accurately' discussion for now. As for bullet drop, VS have it on bolt action sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and shotgun slugs... what else do you have to compensate for it with? Semi-auto snipers, maybe? I don't even remember the last time I fought one of those. That's also pretty useless. As for headshots, you're looking at a ratio of 8:60, and I've got 2936:6756, so that's a thing. I highly doubt that your A-Tross is outsniping Infiltrators, firstly because you have exactly two kills with it, and secondly because as an Infiltrator I think I can honestly say that I've never been killed by one, although granted I've barely played since those were released. I've certainly had people believed that SAWs were workable makeshift sniper rifles, which they are, but they're no match whatsoever for actual sniper rifles, and again, I don't think I've ever lost a sniper duel against a Gauss SAW. You also have two kills with the Phoenix, so while you may be setting ESFs on fire you clearly haven't been popping very many of them. In conclusion, as a Terran Republic sniper, I strongly suggest that you roleplay a little less and fight a little more until you have a bit more to show for it.


I'm still recovering from my noob phase, as I mentioned earlier. I have improved drastically in the past few weeks. I'm still only average at best though.

You hit the nail on the head with that. Even though I'm a NC fanboy at heart, I was trying to push the NC stereotype of SHOCK N AWE PEW PEW PEW EXPLOSIONS!!!!11

Phoenix is a skill cannon for AA, but it's a noob weapon for anti tank. =P

Tr dont need sterotype, We have bullets, and we have bullets.
Why bother capturing bases when when your faction ability is turning into a turret with more RoF?
