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.

is the Fareye from R2? Don't forget RE5's dragunov.......mmmmm..luscious !

KozmoOchez2820d ago

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.

I really expected to see it as #1. Definitely surprised to see it not make the list, everyone's forgotten Counter-Strike I guess.

RyuDrinksTheDew2821d ago

redDevil872821d ago

I wanna see someone grow some balls and do a top 7 lol

The resistance sniper rifle so was much fun to use!

Slowing down time, waiting for the right spot to shoot then ... BOOM! :)

SOAD2821d ago

There was no challenge in it.

redDevil872821d ago

But i liked it because it was just fun to use

games4fun2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

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.

Mista T2821d ago

Farsight from Perfect Dark was amazing

hoops2820d ago

Hell ya. Loved that gun.
