andy said:if someone snipes at you and your buddies, and misses 3/4 of the time, do you NOT scatter and take cover? bs you don't. so the sniper need not CARE if most of his hits are by LUCK. ANYTHING less than 50% is LUCK, in a "2 possible outcome" scenario, which is what shooting IS. you either hit or you miss, 2 possible outcomes. So you HAVE to get over 50% hits, or it's just LUCK. Sure, a guy who can "reach" a bit further, hit 80-90% of the time scares guys a bit more,but even a 25% hitter will STILL deny the enemy free use of the sniper's AO.
That part of the post is good info. Just don't count on them missing as much as you think they will.andy said:See, son, the miltary sniper doesn't much CARE if he misses half of his shots. He is STILL "denying" the enemy the free use of the sniper's AO (area of operation) and he's still serving as a scout-observer, sending-taking useful info back to his superiors.
