Pendragon1951 Posted July 13, 2014 Share Posted July 13, 2014 I have always wondered since I began playing Warframe a year ago why we have Sniper weapons? I can vaguely see some use if your going solo and trying to be stealthy, a true mechanic that is severely lacking, but the way this game is played in most situations is very face paced with the object being to kill a inordinate amount of bodies as quick and as numerous as possible. How does this weapon, bows aside since they seem to have a higher fire rate than sniper rifles, benefit a team on defense, mobile defense, survival? The character of this game just does not cater to this type of weapon, which seems a shame because a sniper rifle can be fun. I know they are thinking of buffing snipers but damage is not the issue, it is just outclassed by any other weapon in how many enemies it can kill at a time. Even the bow can kill more enemies at a time if it's loaded with Thunderbolt. Now so we don't get off track I don't believe the sniper weapon in this game is viable because of the character of how this game is played on the three types of missions I mentioned above.
