I've seen a few posts here about how peopla always like to snipe from very tall places.
Sniper 101: Never snipe from thw highest place in the area.
Why? Because that is the most obvious place. People will constantly be looking at that tower or tall building. Trust me.
You might be able to pull off an extremely long shot that way....but it's going to be the only shot you make in a combat situation
You've got a way better overview, while the enemy can only see your head, if zoomed. If he knows your location, you can still jump down to a smaller building.
Sniper 101: Never run on the streets & on open places. You'll only get countersniped & spawnkilled afterwards.
I got a hit marker on a plane at Mt. Chiliad(sp?) from Maze bank as well.
Crew tested- top of mt chilliad to top of the mountain overlooking ft Zancudo - roughly 2 miles
I sniped a guy from Mount Gordo and he was at Simeons docks.
The shooting distance of the sniper is "only" 1.5 km (0.93 miles)
Look in the game files, and we tested it aswell in 1.14. I doubt it has changed. At one mile, you can't even hit a Cargobob, let alone kill a player. The bullet just resolves itself after 1500m.
