    The sniper cannon is an item that hinges on taking down opponents at long distances. Makes sense, no? But what about point blank? A sniper cannon happens to be as effective point-blank as it is at full range. Why? It's a sniper cannon. Not a crit them in the face like a runaway train cannon. I say that the sniper cannon becomes a railgun-like weapon, where the crit chance decreases as range decreases, from your maximum to 0% at point blank.

    Now you may ask, AntiSnipe, why the duplicate thread? Fact is, when we talk about this, EVERYONE comes to debate, and the main issue is often lost. Here you go, my take on what the reticle of such a sniper cannon should look like:

    I agree, chance crit should decrease when your ship close to enemy position

    Another one of these, lol. Seriously, just post in one of the many posts on this. You even mentioned that you know this is a duplicate thread...

    Go read them all thoroughly and you'll see why it is balanced along with all the other cannons

    -->Give this topic up already,3 dedicated threads made and have been reading the same thing in every single thread since frost torp nerf.

    --->Main issue was never lost,and why do you think this thread is gonna go without any debate.

    -->I dont care whether they nerf it or not,ssly there is lot more to improve rather than suggessting chewed up things again and again

    But don't you think that a weapon that is effective at long range should not be as effective at short range?

    Is my solution valid though? That's all I'm asking. I can understand that we all are tired of arguing about the same stuff over and over AND over again. And I'm somebody who HAS been in those arguments. This solution is, in my opinion, something that will work since it keeps the essence of the weapon intact.

    Also, I recognize all arguments made in the past, and have moved on from them. Let's make new arguments. Square one without the crap.

    It's not valid. There is no reason why a weapon which is balanced with all the items in it's class should be altered to make it weaker than the rest of it's class (cannon type items)

    Alright, alright, I give up. Then if my solution isn't valid, there isn't a possible way to nerf this gun. I assessed all the options, and they all are really bad. Plus I know how useful it is in the mid-game. @The Grim Repair , requesting a thread delete.

    Mark my words though. If the sniper cannon is nerfed in the way I'm suggesting, you'll see a lot of better loadouts on the bay.

    It's a must have for all shooters, but for other boats there actually other cannon options. There's a reason the top shooters average about 1.2 snipers each lol, but for other boats blast (or if u have the slot, Explosive cannon) is usually better. Sure I'd say it's a top tier item, but there will always be a top tier item. Nerfing sniper will just cause another item to take its place as #1 popularity, then people will call for that item to be nerfed etc
