A Sniper is A Marksman
After hunting monsters for a while, I gained 3 skill points.
This game is unusual in that it only has skill points. There are no stats such as stamina, physical strength, or agility.
No, I guess they exist as internal stats, but…
That’s why I don’t know the numbers of the HP gauges displayed above the players’ and monsters’ heads. There is no choice but to experience and understand which attack will reduce the amount.
Well, it’s a pain in the ass to remember tons of details. But at least for me, there’s no problem remembering that.
In short, it’s a game where you can gain skill points by defeating monsters and level up by allocating them to the skills you want.
That’s why I’m currently allocating my skill points. As a sniper, what can I allocate my skill points as a novice?
I’m clicking the word [skill] in the air.
[Range], [Power], [Hit]
[Charge shot], [Rapid-fire]
There are three passive and two active skills that can be allocated at the moment.
By the way, a passive skill is a skill that is effective just by having it, and active skills can be activated manually.
For the time being, it’s all about passive [Range].
All the passive skills seem necessary, but if I have range, the chances of getting a second shot will increase.
And if I snipe from far away, I might be able to kill the enemy without them noticing me in the first place.
Range is an advantage in battle.
I also noticed in previous battles with monsters that if I get a decent headshot instead of a torso shot, the damage increases a lot.
If I’m going to make headshots, I can leave the passive [Power] for later.
The [Hit] skill seems to be a skill that automatically compensates if my aim is a little off, but that’s just a matter of taking the time to aim properly.
I’d like to have all of them eventually, but when I’m just starting out and have few skill points, it’s good to have a clear idea of my priorities.
I don’t need any active skills for the time being.
That’s why I touch the letters three times.
Let’s see how far it can reach the monsters now. I set my aim on a small wolf dog that seemed pretty far away.
It’s a distance I couldn’t have reached earlier.
Pulling the trigger, I hear a bang!
It reaches the target. The wolf dog falls. Well, it hit him in the torso, but I couldn’t take him down with a single blow.
It sprints toward me furiously.
But it’s far enough distance away, so I fire a second shot and kill the wolf dog.
Yes! The range has increased so much that I can actually feel it.
For the time being, this is the maximum range.
There’s a sound, and my HP gauge goes down.
That’s right, it goes down by a massive 90%.
What the hell?
Startled, I turn around and see a big bear.
There’s another monster!
I was so focused on the sniping that I didn’t notice it at all.
I panic and try to get my sniper rifle ready, but there’s no way I can make it in time to shoot the enemy in front of me…
I’m killed by the bear’s second attack.
