I was in Section 2. We were a sniper squad. I LOVED the “lone marksman” aspect of the game.
Back in the day 7 of us went to Brussels. We held the city contested for over three hours. We killed 81 with one loss. We went in on foot and left on foot.
one of the reasons why we left was because our play style was “removed”. It was around that time that sniper classes were implemented. We only liked the open sights anyway.
We went to harass and contest, never to “Hump a city”, while the main force, pushed on another city. We perfected the sniper shot through the view hole of the Ally tanks, they whined and got bulletproof plexiglass. We perfected the sniper shot on the scout vehicles using the velocity of the K98, They whined and we got the Pan-char. We sniped pilots in aircraft, they whined and they got chicken pits that were impervious to rifle fire. We sniped AT gunners and we got mech warriors that wouldn’t even die to pistol rounds RIGHT TO THE HEAD.
Thats why the whole squad left. We fired, they died, they cried, game changed...until we open sight marksman soldiers just left.
I left a Col. no idea what I would be now.
Tatonka!!!! Holy crap!!! You remember Section 2??
