NG: There are guns which fall in behind the pack, and there are those which are pure unerring genius...
Oh come on.
Where is the Sniper rifle from Resistance that slowed down time. Or the Killzone 2 sniper rifle that allowed you to aim (quickly and accurately) with the six axis.
Because in KZ2, you couldn't turn it off (as far as I'm aware, there might be a hidden option, but I'm not sure). And it's not that I suck with it (though I do suck with it, but that's not the reason I don't like it), it's just that some people don't sit straight and with proper posture when playing video games. I myself sit in a leaned back chair when I do my gaming, so using the six axis in my position is not really an option. The gun DOES have one of the best designs and scope designs I have ever seen though, I'll give it that.
then the very best sniper rifles ever made in gaming will be out. Sniper Ghost Warrior on the Xbox 360/PC. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
is the Fareye from R2? Don't forget RE5's dragunov.......mmmmm..luscious !
go play that game and get the Terror Sniper Rifle...that thing was beast, and of course Resistance has probably the best sniper that slows down time Red Dead...come on, that was such a weak/lame sniper rifle compared to others..and how can none of the sniper rifles from SOCOM be on that list? Maybe b/c it was too real. OH...BORDERLANDS!!!! those sniper rifles were insane crazy! Eridian sniper that shocked your target multiple times after one shot! Man this guys list blows
how on earth you can have a "best sniper rifle" list and have 3 games released in the last half year on it is just o.O let alone no AWP or Scout.
wheres the awp ??
I really expected to see it as #1. Definitely surprised to see it not make the list, everyone's forgotten Counter-Strike I guess.
awp is noob sniper?
Where is the scout?
its top 10 lists all this site does?
I wanna see someone grow some balls and do a top 7 lol
It's getting annoying...
considering this is what i see on their front page (on the right) --- Feature The Top Five Worst PS3 (Investigation, PS3) The Ten Worst Console (Top Ten, Multi) Top Ten Secrets: Red Dead (Top Ten, Multi) The 25 Ugliest Games Of (Investigation, Multi) The Ten Most Annoying (Top Ten, Multi) ---- i guess its their specialty :S
Yeah I'm sick to death with all the top ten lists Nowgamer have done over the last few days
where the hell is the M40A1! most simple and the best sniper imo atleast should have been in top 10
The resistance sniper rifle so was much fun to use! Slowing down time, waiting for the right spot to shoot then ... BOOM! :)
There was no challenge in it.
But i liked it because it was just fun to use
the challenge in R1 was knowing when to use it, because of how scarce the ammo was sometimes. On the higher difficulty levels if you waste it on normal enemies then you would be out of luck later on.
Farsight from Perfect Dark was amazing
Hell ya. Loved that gun.
where's the railgun on mgs4?
No longshot, no interested.
Springfield sniper rifle, Day of Defeat: Source http://media.giantbomb.com/...
best one was from mgs 3!
i loved the oddsworld strangers wrath and perfect dark snipers didnt goldeneye also have a sniper rifle that goes through objects?
no sniper rifle from the resistance game. think it was called the fareye or something. that sniper rifle was awesome, wen you aim you could slow down time and get some crazy headshots.
Those where real game changers when you got ahold of one. Maybe nothing flashy or high tech, but as far as being a powerful asset in a game, that was it.
The bolt-action rifle was my favourite, every time I start a new game on Far Cry 2 I always look forward to buying that gun.
fail list whitout the awp from counter strike source can now gamer get some body else to do they top 10 list
Exactly. A sniper rifle that can slow down time has to be at least No 2 or somefthing
If they delivered realistic damage. The barrett .50 cal from MW1 and PRST-41 from World at war, would easily top this list. The sound of them going off screams "DEATH!". But when the target was hit it was like "Run, they be shooting". Nerfing damage for the sake of being NOOB friendly.
This is the best sniper rifle in all FPS games http://www.weastfellows.com...
Dear NowGamer, if your going to do top 10's, please, please, please provide a picture for each item in the list. Thanks.
I hate top # article. But when they don't provide pictures it only pisses me off more.
The sniper in Killzone 2 definitely should have made the list. Wack site.
Killzone 2's Sniper Rifle/ The End's Sniper Rifle/ m40 cod4
Unreal Tournament shock sniper was kinda cool, the old one was useful though.
where is GEARS OF WAR.? worst ever. why the hell is mass effects sniper there.
wow worst list ever. awp from counter strike and the sniper from the first unreal tournament should be #1 and #2. more than likely just started gaming if you even fail to mention those two...wow. i mean come on....really. i cant even begin to...(smh)
What a sucky list they made so here is my short list of long range wig splitters. Half Life 2: Heated Rebar and Crossbow with sniper scope Stalker Series: SVDm2 Draganov Sniper Rifle or The Gauss Gun BFBC2: Barret M95 Nothing says brains on the ground better than these.
The most satisfying for me to use is the sniper from Gears 1 & 2. The exaggeration in gore when your enemies explode makes sniping too much fun. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
AWP - CS:S /discussion
#1 AWP My guess this article was made by a console fag ;)
Yeah, I gotta agree, where's the AWP? What about one of Borderlands' legendary sniper rifles? Would the rail-gun from Quake be counted as its "sniper"? Not many guns have completely assploded fools like the rail. One of my favorite guns in an FPS, ever.
