    Okay, since the latest patch I've noticed that I get LOADS more hitmarkers than I did before I updated, I'm confused to as why but was wondering if any of you knew to as why I'm getting them a lot.

    Odd question but it's rather annoying, I even put impact on and get them.

    Impact doesn't make snipers do more damage, and the damage is the same it's just your aim/connection.

    Maybe it's because you're aiming for the feet. I used to always try to quickscope the feet, but I oftentimes (more or less) find myself getting hitmarkers with a bolt-action rifle. It was until one day that my friend said, "Wow, you're a stupid guy. Try aiming from stomach-up". At first I had no idea where I could find the stomach, so I just tried aiming at the guy's breasts. Bingo, that was the first day I completed the challenge One Shot Kill, and I think I got 50 XP for it, so it's all cool.

    Why would you try to shoot their feet...?

    If you're hardscoping aka Sniping.... Then try to aim chest up.... And if you're "quick scoping" then learn how to actually be a good quick scoper and stop expecting to get a kill every time you quick scope...
