    I’m guessing either the OP is searching for bait or being sarcastic. It’s the worst weapon added so far and that says something because most have been awful. I’d class myself as a decent sniper, able to instinctively adjust for bullet drop but things but this things bullet drop I don’t get.

    1 damage with a hit on a tiger and 5 on the panzer from range but still. Pretty pathetic damage even if it’s historically accurate as really the boys was outdated by the time ww2 came along due to the thicker armour of German tanks. 

    Don’t forget though that even one damage is enough to stop self repair.

    Yes, but you have to use the bipod, and it makes you an easy target.
    No you can one shot from the hip, watch Jackfrags video:

    Getting kills with unsupported hip fire is more luck than design though.

    IMO, It's ****.. Especially with the poor bipod mechanics.

    I just managed to get it full gold and now I am not touching it again unless it becomes decent against vehicles.
    For the purposes of killing infantry every other gun is better in every way.
    and yes unsupported hipfire kills are pure luck, I have missed a hipfire where 90% of the soldier was covered by the standing hipfire reticle.

    Been there too. Took 3 hip fire shots to hit someone I came up behind.

    It would be great , don't know about you though but I don't have any scope glint at all in the game . Apparently this weapon doesn't have scopes but I have an issue with all recon players
    I can have players standing on front of me and aiming at my face and I won't see it. Add the ridiculous visibility et voila

    Might be mind-reading or misunderstanding but the Boys has scopes - 3x and 6x.

    Give the scouts a break. If thing is more than a one shot kill it will be a waste of time.

    Why should the cry babies always get their way?

    Meanwhile other classes have much more potent and easy to use weapons/gadgets than anything the Boys can do.
    So what if the Boys can one hit kill? ? These classes can Triple kill! Or in the case of assault they got stuff that can 2 hit kill while being rapidly spam fired and out-damage faster firing weapons.

    It's balanced by the fact that you need to be stationary and bipoded to use it. You can't have a drawback like that and also damage less than 100 with such a slow firing weapon. There would be no point in using it over any other bolt action then.

    It’s more tone deaf game development.

    Any OHK weapon is going to annoy players.

    The gun isn't OP, but it is one of those weapons/gadgets that doesn't take much skill and is not fun for the user or the person on the other end. It adds even more frustration to this game and it's the sort of thing hilariously DICE said they were trying to go away from when moving on from BF1. Yeah clearly didn't work out there guys.

    Ngl those people don’t understand weapon balancing and don’t know to save judging until after they’ve experienced both sides
