This is kind of a two in one post regarding the terrible OP state of snipers in BF1. Snipers have always been powerful as they should be. It's even worse in BF1 due to the OHK "sweet spot" mechanic.
Most people, I would argue, rarely take into account the distance they are at and the distance required for the OHK, they get in a comfortable spot and start firing. There is little to no bullet drop just a little lead time if the target is on the move, which makes sniping even easier. Make sniping take skill again like it did in BFBC2.
The second issue is snipers sitting back as they always do not helping their squad/team. There needs to be some kind of incentive for them to move up and cover their squad. Even though they are in squads right now, they are still basically lone wolves.
I would go as far as to say snipers should be limited to 1 per squad, guess custom controls on servers will allow something like this...
Is sniping the most balanced it has ever been, no need for change? Tired of seeing 4 of 5 people in the squad with the sniper icon? How does the community feel about this?
