A genre that doesn’t have many standalone titles, the use of sniper rifles and sniping can be found in most First Person Shooters. Sniping games represent a complex physics based gaming mechanic which developers can have a field day recreating in-game. We tried to find games that really incorporated sniping in a big way we avoided including more then one title from a single franchise.
The best Battlefield 1 sniper kills: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izhMdx4NaCc
hey bitch, since you're including games that are not really focused heavily on sniping anyway, why didn't you include the original counter strike? deathmatch sniping is a show for real skill... you fucking douche
To everyone claiming BF belongs on this list... No.
Also, this entire list is BS.
Bullets do *not* drop as fast as shown in games. They can literally fly about 1 KM before even dropping 1 CM - of course it depends on bullet weight and velocity, but please stop thinking that a bullet will drop about half a meter after just 150 meters... This is completely unrealistic.
The only game with marginally correct bullet physics is Arma. All other games should be considered arcade games.
Stalker should be on this list, almost every game gets gravity right, but I want to see any game that gets bullet penetration right, and stalker does it, some games you fire a sniper, and it penetrates everything 1km away, I do get this kind of kills in Stalker, but only against low armored bandits, but try it against a exo clad monolithian, you gotta be 200m max for it to penetrate the armor, anything longer than that, it'll only knock him off, unless you go for a headshot....
BTW, Crysis also have stupid accurate sniping gameplay, and Far cry 3 *doesn't,* because they still find you 500 meters away, and that's Bull, at least on the quickness they do it, you can barely shot twice before they find you
Why is everyone mentionning a Battlefield in the comments? It's like you keep forgetting titles such as CS, Battlefield, CoD, MoH and so on are purely arcade shooters. Just as well as Far Cry (which i honestly don't know why it was included in this video).
SInce i can remember, ArmA, ArmA 2 and ArmA 3 have always by default included at the very least gravity effects onto fired bullets (i.e., bullet drop). You don't even get that on most modern shooters because, again, they're arcade games.
The only thing that will test your accuracy on fps games is the quality and state of your PC specialy the GPU and specialy in high demading graphics games like Battlefield, better GPU better mouse movement, less erratic mouse movement, and less recoil nothing more. The majoritie of people don't realize that many of the shots they miss it was not because of them but their PC. They dont even know what is EPP and MarckC fix.
Also it says sniper games some of these are not sniper games. Yes they have a sniper in them as a choice but to me a sniper game is about sniping and mostly they have it in the title. And everyone stop saying battlefield if your going to mention them games then you may aswell include every game that has a sniper rifle in it. The title says sniper games and half these are not there just games with the rifle in so does that mean we call them shotgun games because they have one in.
well no luck for me i downloaded far cry 3 mostly for the usage of snipers but the ONLY problem that i found in the game other than my bad FPS ofc is.. no sniper/bow crosshair (which i downloaded the game for snipers in the first place)..
somebody kill me..
People will get defensive in my post no doubt but I see several big factors to a Great and Successful sniping game, bullet drop, (if there's actually bullet drop over distance), wind speed and direction, affects the path of the bullet and where it hits. Most these games you all mentioning like Battlefield are (IMHO more like CoD action fps games NOT sniping games) good sniping games and the ones ranked highest Sniper Elite and Sniper Ghost Warrior have the elements I mentioned, being a sniper is not just about running around and quick scoping people lol, Being a sniper is patience, thought and intelligence of taking into account the things I mentioned before bullet drop, wind speed etc and planning.
