I'm a sniper main and currently ranked #2 with the sniper rifle across firepowered servers, and what I do is aim purposely for the body, since I think shooting for the head just makes it a harder target since its smaller, and people complain alot obviously. Its not that I cant hit headshots, I just prefer to shoot at larger targets, so what do you guys think, is it in fact no skill, or a smart tactic?

If it kills the guy, it works.


Plus it's more accurate to real-life anyways. More vital organs in the torso and it's a bigger area in general, so you've got a better chance of hitting something good.

A win is a win and a kill is a kill. It may not be pretty or "skillful" but if the other player is dead and you win the round, then it works.

I agree pretty much with everyone else. A kill is a kill. As someone with over 4,000 kills on a strange sydney I know the ridicule. Of course that's because I can't aim to save my life (and that's why I main soldier)

TBH people get obsessed over detail way too much. In basketball, you instantly are a lot more well-known if you are amazing at shooting 3 pointers, even if you end up not being the leader at your position for points (cough cough Stephen Curry). In TF2? Same thing, people care  more about getting headshots than getting more kills. So yea, it is ok to get only bodyshots. Just a tip, if you seem to almost never get headshots, use sydney sleeper. Seriously.
