    Srinath,

    So far they don't live up to their expectations, hopefully once the get more leveled up or maxed out they will rock.

    Have not tried snipers, but maxed out Rifleman can mow down a good portion of troops (in sufficent numbers). I've even had Riflemen take out light tanks
    To those people who take things on this game a bit too seriously....it's a game, not real life. Chill out a bit

    Ditto. I've been using rifleman almost exclusively since everything else I've tried has sucked in comparison; they're even more awesome since I maxed them out. I can fill up on rifleman in nothing flat since I can auto finish 30ish at a time for 0 credits while everything else takes much longer to spawn and costs more resources and dies out even faster while dealing less damage.

    The only thing I've had trouble with are the higher tier tanks. My infantry and vehicles just get wiped out (since I haven't unlocked those tanks yet) and my aircraft get annihilated by turrets before they can do anything.

    that is great but to complicate for control and if u make mistake or step on the mine, they doom
    way better with 15 rihno or 13 paladin, plus 35 wings drone, 10min to destroy that base
    Thanks anyway

    That was indeed enlightening... once I muted the nails-on-chalkboard "music". I'll be trying it out just as soon as my rocket troops finish spawning.

    EDIT: All I accomplished was losing a bunch of troops because the tanks' ranges are so long.

    Aye, that vid won't work as the game is now.

    Sad to hear snipers aren't up to par for now.

    I know larh.. that vid is verrrry old . but the techniques are not bad. distracting rockets.. I also changed the rocket launchers to copters and cobras and used one rifle man to distract tanks out and ran far away. distract again when they were going back to the base. takes long time..

    Ive got level 4 snipers (Nothing else to upgrade right now) and they still suck horribly, 145 DPS at 320 range. And they are slower than mega tanks to boot

    It also occurred to me to use copters instead of rockets. So now I summon lots of copters near the edge of the map and then a single rifleman who kites tanks into the copters' ranges. Whenever the rifleman dies I just summon another and keep going. I just hit level 18 by taking out a level 23 NPC base using that method to clear out the tanks and my usual 82 maxed out rifleman for everything else.
