"-50% scope distance"
I see this as a absolute win
Wouldn’t 50% of infinite still be infinite? Therefore this is the best sniper weapon
I think it means it zooms in less
Shhhh that’s boring and would make the weapon balanced
Not really though? If anything it’ll probably make it easier to be oppressively aggressive with it.
Shhhhhh that’s smart and we don’t do that here
You could probably use it like a scoped pistol
Wait that gives me an idea, put it on engi and have it "kill" heavies in one shot whenever a spy is doing the conga in your direction
This weapon is literally screaming “just quickshot, forehead”
But sniper doesn't have infinite range in tf2
-50% scope distance can easily be an upside if we’re talking about weapon zoom
(Btw I like the idea and design)
What if it actually just cut your vision distance and puts fog past that point?
Maybe, but that kind of only effects the sniper match up. A weapon like this would make him a far greater threat to everyone else unless it had a steeper damage penalty or the kinds of penalties you see on the Ambassador
OP made the halo 1 pistol
This sucks I love it
Can i add something?
+ 2 shots in clip
- 20% accuracy
I could so see this being used in a battle sniper loadout
like, 80% less accuracy? Only 20% of the accuracy?
1/5 chance you shoot where crosshair points
Tf2 has enough rng
Wdym? Random crits are fair and balanced
Ok but random bullet spread is bs
Dude those were all jokes I dunno what original commentator meant
Instead of -80% accuracy, how about a 3° angle like the beggars that narrows down as the charge fills? That way, it still allows the sniper to do sniper things without removing the battle-side of the weapon
What do you mean by 2 shots in clip? Sniper with stock shoots one round then rechambers another one indefinitely, 25 if he doesn’t pick up any ammo.
If you mean +20 percent accuracy, sniper rifle already has that. If you mean -80 percent accuracy, that would make the weapon unfun as you could aim where you are supposed to and wait until the perfect time and then still miss.
That's the posite of the schnatty.
(Sniper shotgun vs sawn off sniper)
I love how ridiculously short it is. I think the tip of the bullet would be visible and have the velocity of a BB gun. It would be more useful as a flashbang really.
ok engineer main
Give it the Amby headshot damage falloff too, coupled with headshots only doing mini-crits
Little add on: noscoped headshots are still headshots for This weapon
OP has random crits
Plz do more
The snpr rfle
How can it scope in 50 percent faster if its already instant. Or am i not getting something
I assume they mean scoping after reloading?
small delay between scoping in and firing
so basically an unmodified (aside from the scope) hunting rifle from fallout 4? 😂
I would add “-75% headshot damage”
Gotta make it "25% headshot damage" so it's usable on a 10x server
This seems like it was inspired by the hot dogs horse shoes and hand grenades shorty sniper rifle they made for meat fortress
How bout add some recoil per shot instead of faster reload time. The zoom distance is good for dealing with scouts
i think less zoom is actually a buff. maybe its just because i play destiny 2 alot but hey
100% a buff. The way the scope in tf2 is designed is to open a weakness up on the sniper by giving them tunnel vision. It's the reason the classic is a weapon.
10% speed buff is way too busted
Reminds me of the weapon in h3VR
WAY too OP.
If we assume this it doesnt scope charge at all... If we turn headshots into minicrits (if that much)... If we give a 50 percent clip size penalty... and take away the movement speed bonus...
That might be something just OP enough that it would be fun for 3 weeks before it needed to be nerfed again.
I like it. Has potential.
What would follow... Spy trapper? Sappers get replaced with trappers. Spy gets 7, not 1. Sits dormant, but instakills sentries placed on it after they have been placed over the trapper for 90 seconds. Debuffs speed by 75% for 5 seconds and makes headshots instakill for someone who runs over it... Mine is OP too, how would you balance that one?
I think all mercs should have something that is quazi opposite of what they are... like demoknight offers.
Maybe add decreased accuracy like 10% ish so it wont be direct upgrade of The Classic or smth?

time to call it "Circumsised sniper rifle"
I realize this is likely a joke but this idea is not great
Scoping is generally a downside for sniper. Hence the .2 second headshot delay after scoping in to prevent people from scripting no scopes.
This would be extremely overpowered in every way and highlight exactly why sniper is problematic. Locking down entire portions of the map on demand.
Why is this getting down voted lol this is 100% true...
Because Reddit tf2 players are bottom of the barrel trash who’s opinions on sniper are shaped by youtubers and the 3 hour sniper mains they encounter on 2fort.
On this account I have actually said things that are just objectively correct and they get downvoted, but saying things that are just flat out incorrect get upvoted. Quite saddening
ok thanks professor
No problem man
Move speed a little too good but the damage penalty kills it because you dont kill meds on one headshot
Oh no, there'd be one less class the instant kill hitscan class can instant kill, which is still too many. How ever will snipers survive having to actually charge a shot.
Its very clear you dont like getting headshot with the eyelander with no heads
Fallout 4 sniper load out
Looks like an SFG-50.
Sawed-off Sniper Rifle?
You're killing me smalls!
I feel like the 50% faster scope speed is kinda pointless
"Size doesn't matter"
Kinda looks like Han Solo’s(?) gun in Star Wars.
This looks like a fallout weapon
Han Solo's Blaster LMAO
Can we PLEASE not make "Close range quickscoping" the gun?
+1 degree bullet spread
Shorty like a melody in my head~
This looks like my quick scoping setup in cod.
Not super op but very unbalanced
The downsides are too weak bc -10% damage is just 45=normal damage and 135=headshot
And the -50% skope distance is not even a downside so i would add that u can't charge ur shots
Wtf is -50% of infinity?
Why is -50% scope distance red? Should be blue text tbh
Complete upside, especially if you've played with the hunting rifle in TF2C
My pp when its cold
>50% faster scoping
Damn, time to get quickscoped twice in .2 seconds
If this gets added sniper will be the n̶e̶w̶ most hated class in the game
description tag “like a melody”
\-10 damage penalty is too little
Less scope in time would make this dumb for competitive play. The damage penalty helps but only so much.
SHORTY'S GOT A BULLET IN MY HEAD
The bot update
Too late, this is already on hotdogs horseshoes and hand grenades
love the model. other than that this is a straight upgrade and want to die thinkin about it in game
looks like stock hunting rifle on fallout 4 without modifiation
how do you halve infinity?
literally every cod mw sniper loadout ever
This thing can still throw out 135 damage headshots. Pretty sure this is worse than the pre-nerf ambassador.
Like a melody in my head
shawty's like a melody
Honestly i would use this weapon
Cut the damage some more and add some spread after a set distance and we're golden
I like this!!
mmm yes, quick scopes
Now we just need a sniper scope to regain some of that range
IMO, it doesn't seem very good
\- 1.125 second attack interval Instead of 1.5 second attack interval
\- 0.5 second scope speed instead of 1 second scope speed
\- 110% speed instead of 100% speed
\- 45 dmg instead of 50
\- 135 dmg instead of 150
\- 405 dmg instead of 450
\- 2.5x magnification instead of 5x magnification
Where i found the stats:
So It'd encourage a similar playstyle as the Huntsman
Lego star wars blaster
it's not the size that matters, it is what you do with it that counts
I love it
I'm dont usually play sniper (because I have a chappy pc so I cant even aim lol) but this still looks like an amazing weapon
its a great idea, looks a lot like thebRemington Contender wich can be equipped with a scope
damn shorty ok
is this just an obrez?
I cannot wait to be quickscoped x5 more with this weapon. 2fort snipers will love this
shorty like a melody
135 damage is still enough to one shot a light class, and the faster reload speed just makes this a straight upgrade from stock
Oh no this would be so broken hahahah
Not even the reload, jsut giving me a lower magnification scope
Horrible! The -10% damage penalty completely gets rid of quickscoping. Taking that away from a sniper rifle, just to add extra things is basically the same as giving someone a crutch.
10%penalty on headshot? Or just body shot?
I'd say that it can't headshot
