    woww, i've run sniper roles in domination, not 1.5km but like, up to around 800m
    I was thinking about that. That's literally the only mission we've ever used snipers in, because there are assassination missions, and you can provide actual sniper support from 1km away to everyone else that's either clearing the AO you're at or doing a sidemission.

    Sniper (DIFFERENT FROM SNIPER RIFLE) = Operates in a team of 2. Moves silently out of combat, gets into position, waits for hours, takes out a single target from 1.5km away after a few minutes of calculations, and leaves the combat area without any further contact.

    Squad Designated Marksman (S.D.M.) = Operates within a squad of 6-12. Can be expected to operate like a normal rifleman and is given optics and generally a calibre capable of taking out targets from 1.5-2x past normal rifleman range. Right in the the thick of everything. Snap shooting galore.

    WE. DON'T. USE. SNIPERS. They don't exist in our missions. Holy shit.
    What about the time with Devils and I as the sniper spotter team in the mission with the downed blackhawk pilots and super exploding bomb factory? We were providing fire from a pretty significant distance and stayed far away from you guys.

    i can extract them for you tomorrow, going to bed now though

    otherwise, get binPBO and you could extract it yourself

    it's usually just one of the ~OFP VETS~ that take up section leaders and shit, usually people know who's next-in-command if the current SL goes down
    I'm an OFP vet and I normally take our marksman position, i mean if playing the FUCK out of OFP is all it takes, I'm our fucking Commander in Chief

    Edited:

    ooooo

    we could do qualification courses for specialized roles

    it'll be like America's Army but more stupid
    fuck you man, i play as the medic a lot in arma and i'm not doing that fucking 5 page multiple choice test from America's Army, ok?

    The marksman thing and the OFP comment are two different thoughts, sorry.

    and the medic thing was because niko brought up the qualification thing from America's Army, and if you've ever actually played it you'd know there's like a 10 minute slideshow with a huge ass multiple choice test just to play as the medic class online.

    too many marksmen.
    You, Kyle, Duel, and apparently partyhats.
    There should be a maximum of 1 for the whole side. Each fireteam doesn't need a marksman, it just turns into them killing most of the infantry and leaving nothing to the riflemen. There should be mostly riflemen.
    ShackTac fireteams go like this for the most part:
    FTL ( FireTeam Leader
    AR ( Automatic Rifleman )
    AAR ( Assistant Automatic Rifleman )
    Rifleman (AT) ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav )
    Rifleman (AT) ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav )
    Rifleman
    They almost never have infantry with zooming optics.

    We could simplify Shacktacs squad system like so.
    Squad Leader
    Squad Medic
    -
    Alpha 1
    FTL ( FireTeam Leader
    AR ( Automatic Rifleman )
    AAR ( Assistant Automatic Rifleman )
    Rifleman (AT) ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav )
    Rifleman (AT) ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav )
    Rifleman
    -
    Alpha 2
    AR ( Automatic Rifleman )
    AAR ( Assistant Automatic Rifleman )
    Rifleman (AT) ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav )
    Rifleman (AT) ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav )
    Rifleman
    -
    Alpha 3
    FTL ( FireTeam Leader
    AR ( Automatic Rifleman )
    AAR ( Assistant Automatic Rifleman )
    AR ( Automatic Rifleman )
    AAR ( Assistant Automatic Rifleman )
    Designated Marksman

    I've never seen Kyle or duel go marksman when I've played. Notrabies and I did pretty well as sniper/spotter during one mission and when we played this weekend niko and I were marksmen and we didn't do as well as the fireteam.

    i go marksmen whenever i can, but devils you havent played in a while, and duel just goes marksmen then is like does anyone have a rangefinder.

    Edited:

    I like how we are talking about loadouts when it doesnt even really matter, half the time we have what we need, AT, machine gunners we are set most of the time.

    Edited:

    like there are other things we need to worry about

    Whoa wtf is happening here

    I don't mean that you're going to be stuck in a role forever, just suggesting that it'd be nice that when we need a role filled, we have people that actually know what they're doing.
    Not every mission is going to have a marksman, not every mission is going to require an AT gunner, etc.
    But if it does, we can have someone who knows that they're doing fill that slot.

    This helps avoid backblast ff incidents, aggressive marksmen dying and losing our force multiplier, etc.

    For support weapons we should use the IAR and then give everyone else STANAG guns so when the SAW gunner goes down a rifleman can take his Cmags and take over his role.

    Also at the very least everyone should be able to proficiently use an assault rifle, a grenade launcher and light AT.
