Anybody got a good class for the XPR sniper rifle?

Looking for a more traditional sniper build not quick scoping.

    XPR with Acog and Fast mag.

    Works well at all ranges.

    What I have been running is

     

    XPR

    Ballistic CPU

    B23R

    Flak Jacket, Light Weight

    Fast hands

    Dexterity

    C4

    Emp x 1

     

    I just use the rifle as a very traditional mobile hard scoping class. I tend to use controlled aim shots rather than spraying.  I just like the weapon better than the ballista or DSR because I can take on multiple targets quicker than with the bolt action rifles.  The b23r is just a starting weapon because I don't like to get caught with the rifle in close combat.  I usually will swap it out for the first shotgun or SMG I find on the ground.  That is the primary purpose of fast hands in the class. C4 and the emp grenade are just general problem solvers. Again any advice would be welcome.

    Someone else who knows that semiautomatics are the way to kill multiple enemies rather than the mentally retarded players who persist with bolt action rifles!

     

    Anyway:

     

    XPR with Ballistics CPU and Fast Mags

    Flak Jacket

    Toughness, Cold Blooded

    Engineer

    B23R with Fast Mags

      The Ballistic CPU is a big help in the XPR.  It has some wild up and down swings while ADSed which are greatly lessened with the CPU attached.  Past that other perks, etc really depend on ones playstyle.  I have always used it as a semi-auto Ballista.  It has roughly the same OHK box as the Ballista.  So aim high and time your shots.  As with most semi-auto guns going full auto with it is counterproductive.  And as Sitrep has suggested a good pistol back up will save your butt.
