FAQ: Marine Sharpshooter

What is Marine Sharpshooter?

Marine Sharpshooter is a First Person Shooter where you play as a top level sniper, taking out terrorists and bad guys around the world!

What are some tips before starting the game?

Before you begin shooting, take the time to locate the targets so you don't waste time trying to find them while they're shooting you. Also, you can wait at the selection screen for your health to regenerate!

What are the differences in the guns?

All the guns have different properties:
Rate of Fire: This determines the cooldown between shots. The lower the number, the faster the reload time.
Clip Capacity: How many bullets the gun holds before it must reload.
Damage: This affects how many times an enemy must be shot in the body before they are taken out. Keep in mind however, headshots will always kill them.
Accuracy: How accurate the gun is relative to your crosshairs.
Recoil: The amount of jerk that you experience after a shot is fired.
Reload time: After you run out of bullets, this is the amount of time you must wait before you are able to shoot your gun again.
Depending how how you are as a player, you want to maximize different things to enable your success. If you are a very accurate shooter, you are looking for a high rate of fire and clip capacity. However, if you are less accurate, you would want to maximize your damage (in case you don't get a head shot) and minimize your reload time so you can maximize your damage.

What's the difference between a head shot and a body shot?

A headshot will take your enemy out in one shot, saving time and bullets, elements that are critical to your success. Always try to get head shots. Body shots will not take them out in one hit, but more (depending on how powerful your gun is), which will cause you to finish objectives slower (but still better than missing). Points-wise, headshots grant 1000+ (depending on what mode you're playing in) points whereas body shots only give you 200.

How does the tilt control work?

The tilt control acts like a scope. If you imagine your device screen to be a scope, it makes a lot of sense. The way you tilt it is the way your line of sight goes.

Can I turn tilt control off?

You can turn off the tilt control by going to the main menu and hitting "options". When this is turned off, you move the screen by dragging it with your fingers.

What's the difference between Original and Black Ops?
