"-50% scope distance" I see this as a absolute win


Death_Incarnate_312

Wouldn’t 50% of infinite still be infinite? Therefore this is the best sniper weapon


Savage_Bacon

I think it means it zooms in less


Death_Incarnate_312

Shhhh that’s boring and would make the weapon balanced


LordSpaceRicky

Not really though? If anything it’ll probably make it easier to be oppressively aggressive with it.


Death_Incarnate_312

Shhhhhh that’s smart and we don’t do that here


skelecogaming1

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


Just_a_Slime37

This weapon is literally screaming “just quickshot, forehead”


FrogInShorts

But sniper doesn't have infinite range in tf2


RocktopusX

-50% scope distance can easily be an upside if we’re talking about weapon zoom (Btw I like the idea and design)


Clegomanrun

What if it actually just cut your vision distance and puts fog past that point?


RocktopusX

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


utsavman

OP made the halo 1 pistol


scarmophogoghs

This sucks I love it


CatTomNG

Can i add something? + 2 shots in clip - 20% accuracy I could so see this being used in a battle sniper loadout


star_razer

like, 80% less accuracy? Only 20% of the accuracy?


Tiran593

1/5 chance you shoot where crosshair points


hammertime334

Tf2 has enough rng


Tiran593

Wdym? Random crits are fair and balanced


hammertime334

Ok but random bullet spread is bs


Tiran593

Dude those were all jokes I dunno what original commentator meant


hammertime334

Lmao


Khint20

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


barnarnars

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.


Game-Lad

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.


The-alt-Reporter

That's the posite of the schnatty. (Sniper shotgun vs sawn off sniper)


Quantum_E

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.


MiraboreasuSoRyuu

ok engineer main


Hawkshadow741

Give it the Amby headshot damage falloff too, coupled with headshots only doing mini-crits


FroarTuck

Little add on: noscoped headshots are still headshots for This weapon


8bityboi

OP has random crits


Pschmidy05

Plz do more


Swimmermac

The snpr rfle


[deleted]

How can it scope in 50 percent faster if its already instant. Or am i not getting something


ForgottenKingRade

I assume they mean scoping after reloading?


CompleteFacepalm

small delay between scoping in and firing


[deleted]

so basically an unmodified (aside from the scope) hunting rifle from fallout 4? 😂


Photenicdata

I would add “-75% headshot damage”


Navy_Pheonix

Gotta make it "25% headshot damage" so it's usable on a 10x server


The_1Kitcatking

This seems like it was inspired by the hot dogs horse shoes and hand grenades shorty sniper rifle they made for meat fortress


minecraft_min604

How bout add some recoil per shot instead of faster reload time. The zoom distance is good for dealing with scouts


Hot-Cheek5191

i think less zoom is actually a buff. maybe its just because i play destiny 2 alot but hey


goldenbukkit

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.


diskomancer

10% speed buff is way too busted


dobbyhi

snip


Electroboi2million

Reminds me of the weapon in h3VR


desktopgamer2839

obrez


Melkath

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. Demo-knight. Sniper-pistoleer. 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.


DVa996

Maybe add decreased accuracy like 10% ish so it wont be direct upgrade of The Classic or smth?

Hectic-Hazard

time to call it "Circumsised sniper rifle"


Ghostly_906

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.


RealCorgi

Why is this getting down voted lol this is 100% true...


Ghostly_906

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


Iruma_Miu_

ok thanks professor


Ghostly_906

No problem man


randomjhoni

Move speed a little too good but the damage penalty kills it because you dont kill meds on one headshot


IrrationallyGenius

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.


randomjhoni

Its very clear you dont like getting headshot with the eyelander with no heads


superdabpenguin

Fallout 4 sniper load out

Kylo-Ren345

This looks like a fallout weapon


Strong_Sandvich

Han Solo's Blaster LMAO


The_Smashor

Can we PLEASE not make "Close range quickscoping" the gun?


IceboundCat6

+1 degree bullet spread


memereviewer453

Shorty like a melody in my head~


theMrJoey

This looks like my quick scoping setup in cod.


Davd707cz

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


Freakyjoestarman

Thin scout


Gamepro5

Wtf is -50% of infinity?


JustWantHelpWHammer

Why is -50% scope distance red? Should be blue text tbh Complete upside, especially if you've played with the hunting rifle in TF2C


iCybernide

the mosin


NORDlIC

My pp when its cold


Jeggu2

>50% faster scoping Damn, time to get quickscoped twice in .2 seconds


TheJaySword

If this gets added sniper will be the n̶e̶w̶ most hated class in the game


Mr-Birdnest

description tag “like a melody”


bruhinator-2000

\-10 damage penalty is too little


oddman8

Less scope in time would make this dumb for competitive play. The damage penalty helps but only so much.

love the model. other than that this is a straight upgrade and want to die thinkin about it in game


artyaakaira22

looks like stock hunting rifle on fallout 4 without modifiation


Random_User27

how do you halve infinity?


ruskiStove

literally every cod mw sniper loadout ever


mrgeek2000

Snorty mcsnortison


rednico6

This thing can still throw out 135 damage headshots. Pretty sure this is worse than the pre-nerf ambassador.

10% only?????


Square-Arm-8573

-100% accuracy


BreakAdvanced8449

Honestly i would use this weapon


Sgt_Shieldsmen

Cut the damage some more and add some spread after a set distance and we're golden


DoctorCyan

I like this!!


Guvington

mmm yes, quick scopes


PewdiepieFan92

Now we just need a sniper scope to regain some of that range


CompleteFacepalm

IMO, it doesn't seem very good Positives: \- 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 Negatives: \- 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: [https://www.reddit.com/r/tf2/comments/39nd3a/what\_is\_the\_magnification\_of\_the\_sniper\_rifle/](https://www.reddit.com/r/tf2/comments/39nd3a/what_is_the_magnification_of_the_sniper_rifle/) [https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Sniper](https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Sniper) [https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Sniper\_Rifle](https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Sniper_Rifle) https://tf2console.fandom.com/wiki/Sniper\_Rifle

it's not the size that matters, it is what you do with it that counts


condorblazin

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


Mindless-Mushroom-36

its a great idea, looks a lot like thebRemington Contender wich can be equipped with a scope

I cannot wait to be quickscoped x5 more with this weapon. 2fort snipers will love this


GrandLeaderZhan

shorty like a melody


Mr_Face_McShooty

135 damage is still enough to one shot a light class, and the faster reload speed just makes this a straight upgrade from stock


flibergdde

Oh no this would be so broken hahahah Not even the reload, jsut giving me a lower magnification scope


Nika13k

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.


Electronic_Sugar5924

10%penalty on headshot? Or just body shot?


NoManagement3545

I'd say that it can't headshot
