    check out the average points/hour section. Sniper is somehow totally off the charts nearing 11000 points per hour. Why would that happen??
    This is for this week, and not at all edited. Here is a link anyways:

    Because the sniper is super efficiant at getting points. 2 per headshot.

    Can't say i'm surprised.

    It's part of the class design anyway, because the sniper is out of combat and generally not achieving objectives and additional player points that that would requisite, he gets additional points for killing people, and by nature kills more efficiently than other classes, as Aly said. So it's "supposed" to be a balancing measure. Of course, because of the snipers nature, he can be totally over powered and exploited by better players.

    they changed it to 1.5
    Unless they have sneakily changed it back without me noticing, it should still be.

    Also, that stat site has never been very reliable... It shows crazy numbers, and sometimes even negatives.
