hi ladies and gents. Tonight we will be looking into the habitat of a most strange animal. the sniper wolfe. Noone is really sure what this creature is but I have determined within myself to find the answer to this age old question. ok all joking aside, what is a sniper wolfe? Ive seen this name on more than a dozen forums over the years and it has never been the same person. Where did this name originate? I know what a sniper is. and I know what a wolf is (not sure what a wolfe is though) so wth is a sniper wolfe??? [BD]

Me thinks it was a character in a Playstation game. I could be mistaken, but I'm 99% sure it was some blonde hottie with a PSG1 from Metal Gear Solid.

Whats a WolfAR15? Is it when you shoot Wolf ammo and the steel case gets lodged in the chamber, thereby becoming "mated" with the AR?

Maybe you're a sniper, but when it comes to playing games with snipers in them, I'm not too bad myself. Playing Unreal Tournament online, I've become such a major pain in the ass (on my favorite CTF maps) that I've been kicked from quite a few servers. I guess they hate it when I hit 'godlike' and keep on nailing the other team as fast as they can respawn. Yes, I AM that asshole sniper that drives you insane and that you can't find...or if you do find me, you never get the chance to pop off a shot at me because "I am superior." People hate that so much that sometimes, they'll switch to my team just to knock me off my perch. Then things get fun! I always had a hard time finding some willing teammates who would coordinate their sniping with me and stick to the plan. Give me two hot flag runners and three good snipers, all who'll stick to the rules, and we'll trample the ass of any other team out there.

Heh... I remember that quite well.. Esp the people whining about 'camping' because they expect everyone to play like it's Quake 1 (i.e. run out and blaze away... I got my affinity for sniping by playing vs people with broadband on my dialup system. Long range, the run-and-jump crew is just as dead. Short range, I loose due to lag... Haven't played in a while, though... Brings back memories...

Ghost Recon, Last Man Standing ... a sniper's dream. Even more fun when playing LMS as a team with a couple of true sniper teams: a sniper and a dedicated rifleman to offer close support/protection. It's a game, but it's something to do late at night when the rest of the house is snuggled in bed.
Link Posted: 5/7/2003 9:37:36 AM EDT
ahhhh I fondly remmember my days as a sniper. the only experience Ive had so far is the delta force series. In df1 I was a dedicated counter sniper. Not the kind your used to though, I would hunt them down by tracking the sound of the gun they were using then id come from behind and deal them a quick death. df2 found me finally trying to be a sniper. I got to be real good at the game for a time and fondly remmember making 1000meter head shots offhand. The most difficult was hitting moving targets. And just as I mastered this art I decided to leave df2. too many cheaters. df3 found me trying new things although Id always go back to sniping. the dedicated sniper servers were great. beautiful terrain, shoot as far as the eye can see. then came df4 tfd. this was a disappointment. The so called snipers would bounce around constantly, jumping and running and making 800m+ head shots while running and jumping. smelled like BS to me so I havnt been back in df4 since. anyone know of a good new spec ops game for snipers? It does not need to require a 3d graphics card as I dont have one and dont have the money to buy one.

That reminds me... Before I got bored with Unreal Tournament, I eventually graduated from sniper to countersniper.I wouldn't bother with the flag fags, I'd just focus on hunting down and killing other snipers. I got pretty devious, sometimes. I'm SURE that I found every last hiding spot on most of the maps I played most, including some glitches in some maps where you're literally invisible and suspended on what SHOULD be space but for a glitch in the map that put a small invisible surface alongside the edge of a sheer rock wall. The view was limited but the pickings were rich! I like the biggest, wide open maps, as they suit my counter/sniper style. I sort of suck at the close-in meles, though. My way of dealing with those is to grab a nuke and do the Arab Terrorist routine. CJ CJ

I know what you mean. Eventually I started countersniping the traditional way. I would pop into a df2 CTF server with a barret .50 find a good perch and nail enemy snipers and then move to a new position. It was funny to watch supposed "veteran" sniper players go back to the same spot every time after getting killed. The only problem is that the other players would complain that us snipers were not getting into the game and that we were just having our own private little death matches. Of course they didnt realise that we were keeping the enemy snipers off of their backs. and keeping the enemy flag fags in their own bay.

In Ghost Recon, I've gotten into the habit of moving over and laying down where my last victim was. You wouldn't believe the number of times that someone will pass you by, believing you to be a comrade's dead body. I've also noticed that a number of players only expect a single sniper at a location. If you're working in sniper teams, one can lay next to, almost on, a partner. Should one of you get eliminated, the other is usually overlooked...especially by "runners" who come upon you from behind. Since we're playing with pixels, not blood, you can take advantage of unscrupulous tactics like this.

In UT, you can also lie down. (feign death) I've tried that tactic with limited success. I kept encountering pessimists who shoot bodies "just in case". Ouch. CJ

in df2 we had a ghillie suit and tall grass. an enemy could walk right over top of you and never know you were there.

Probably my favorite anti-sniping technique: You'd have to be familiar with the CTF-Facing Worlds map in Unreal Tournament to understand this one properly. This is a simple map with two castles connected by a land mass, floating in space. The castles are very tall and not very wide. My favored technique would be to carefully make my way to the backside ledge just below the top of the castle. It's almost a perfect spot to hide (or it was, for a long time) because you can't be seen by anyone who isn't on that ledge, or at worst, standing on top of the castle and looking down off the back wall. On this level, if low gravity is being used, or it's a JumpMatch, but preferrably not both at once,(simply because you spend too much time in the air after jumping and become a skeet target...and incidentally, I also became a notoriously good skeet shooter in such matches, often hitting someone three or four times in midair....)then I'd grab the sniper's rifle, hit that ledge, preset the rifle and aim point, select scope view, zoom in to near max magnification, and jump, aim, shoot...and again, jump, aim, shoot, and so forth. These snap shots usually resulted in me shooting people who never saw me. Sure, sometimes someone else would catch on and tag me, but I figure I got a ten to one kill ratio out of that one trick. It's also a hoot to play that map with both JumpMatch and low gravity turned on just because of the incredible jumps you can make and your very long flight time. Hit it just right and you can jump from one tower to the other, and that's probably 500 yards by scale. It's more fun than a basket full of puppies! CJ
