Overpowered Sniper Rifle
The Machina for the sniperis a one shot kill if charged up. I think that is overpowered. Do u think any sniper is overpowered?

The Machina is considered by many to be one of the most OP weapons in the game.

i think the machina is fine cus the regular sniper can kill a buffed heavy in one hit as well and nobody says thats overpowered

you have to wait for that recharge time to get the effect and tracer rounds tell the team exactly where he is to smoke him out. you cant shoot unscoped so youre helpless for the few seconds where you are switching weapons. its not really op

You also can't shoot unless you're scoped in. To me that's a big bummer since I like using jarate as my secondary and I feel a little defenseless when someone is up in my face.

snipers with the machina, in a hidden spot 9001 kilometers from the battlefield, gets 1 kill the entire game, being no credit to team, I've gotten used to them, even though I suck at the game.

Machina is only op if you are bad.

A kill is a kill. Bodyshot or headshot.

The damage bonus only kicks in at full charge and a Sniper who was able to build up full charge with you within his field of view would very well be capable of one hit killing any target just as well.
Not as easy, given, but to counter that the Machina gives away the Sniper's position and takes away no-scopes, his most effective means of mid-range self defence.


So..
Overpowered?
No way.
But definitely poorly skill indexed.

There is no such thing.

It is not op. It is easier to perform at a certain skill level then the stock, but after that skill level only servers to hinder. As almost any sniper can kill a overhealed heavy in one shot, it is not op for one sniper to do that slightly easier.

Maybe you should stop standing still so much?

Really? By who?

Let's recap:

No no-scope shooting
Instantly position give away

A hitman's heatmaker in in the hands of a skilled sniper is more of a threat. But even then the opportunity to turn that into a death machine is limited.

Stock is still the best sniper rifle.

Percisely why I never use it. Stock is still the best sniper rifle.

Overpowered is the degreaser + Axtingusher (and skins).

Honestly, if you're a good sniper, I don't see why you'd choose the Machina over the stock. The downsides are way too high for the extra 15% damage and penetration shot.
