Red Orchestra 2 sniper guide

In this PC Gamer Protip, Senior Editor Evan Lahti divulges our strategies for successful sniping in high-realism WWII shooter Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. Whether or not the challenge of RO2's large-scale territory battles is for you, many of these long-range combat tactics apply to any shooter with big guns and scopes. And if you love sniping as much as we do (despite what might be said about our ilk by less-precise soldiers), it's just tons of fun to watch 200 meter beheadings. Watch the introduction above, and run through our complete course in the videos below.

    Ever since BF3 came out there has been less and less people playing this game.

    Videos were great, but I don't see why the voiceover needed to be that stiff. It's ok to throw in some personality, this isn't.....ok I'm not going to disparage other websites.

    Actually that's just the way Evan Lahti talks. If you listen to the PCG podcast you'll hear his voice a lot. I think he's half Vulcan, always in a neutral but calm voice.
