We were checking out the island ahead of an upcoming 10 vs 10 scrimmage against [BP]. Cub spotted this guy running through the swamp on the main land, and my reflex to use anything and everything as target practice kicked in.

I’d like to add that I’ve been touting the M4 as a superior “combat sniping” weapon, compared to the other rifles currently available in DayZ, for a while now. The fact that you can fire off shots in rapid succession allows you to dial in and eliminate moving targets much easier than with a bolt action rifle. I’ve tried hitting running targets with a long range scope equipped Mosin on a few occasions, and I can definitely say the M4 takes much less player skill to get the job done. With that being said, I’m not really sure if I hit him while moving or how many times total. I think I put at least two in him, which is what it takes to bleed out in that amount of time from 5.56 rounds (in 0.48).
