Is make defending a flag easier. forward assault more possible. It would force more people to dig the trenches. My argument is you already have them pinned down with a heavy gun with barely any range. Telescopic sight would give at least X3 range. Yes it would be garbage for scoping at things up close. Scope still wouldn't matter on the move. Just like the anti-material rifles. It makes suppressing snipers easier. Maybe do it because it's right.
