I can't hit players with sniper weapons often enough to be useful. How do players use them effectively? Do they lower their mouse dpi just before firing? Any other tips?

If you can tell when a player is stopped, flying straight, or drifting those are great times to fire, it'll take some practice to get used to though. Also if a player use engine boost away from you then they are going to be travelling in a straight line very easy to hit in these situations.

I should actually. Codifying what I do to snipe might scare people away from sniping though :lol:

For starters, what in the world is mouse dpi?

just googled it, DPI stands for, Dots Per Inch. So basically how many pixels the mouse cursor on screen moves for every inch you move the actual mouse. In layman's terms, how fast the cursor moves, or the mouse sensitivity setting.

My mouse is always set to 5000 DPI.

For sniping, I suggest practicing. It takes very good spacial awareness to hit enemies who are off-screen. It also helps to try to learn common patterns of movement, so it becomes easier to predict where people will be. This is also how I teleport stomp people.

Radar helps, too.

yeah its pretty much all practice and watching how fast they are moving and in what direction, ask someone to tank up and help you with sniper practice, or just pvp. you will get btter

Gotta say Spaceman is awesome. One of the only people I see asking the real questions. You've played a long time man, I have to assume you learned everything you could on your own and now here you are asking great questions. With just your questions alone we could compile a really nice list of very important questions and answers.

A better add-on question is, how do you deliver enough damage and/or effects with just long range weapons? How do you deal with your target surviving and closing to You? I am asking for PVE and PVP.
