Sniping is a big subject in Arma. Its not as simple as the video makes out... for example, he only talks about zeroing. What about the DMR, which has no zeroing?

Correction tables:
Weapon Ranging and Correction Tables

Sniper Operations Manual here:
Arma 2: OA - Sniper Operations Manual
Lots of good general info there.

IMO the best sniper team for DayZ is any scoped rifle with an L85 equipped spotter/agro guy.

Well from a practical standpoint since my primary weapon of choice is the DMR I tend to find it absolutely the cats meow when it comes to intermediate range targets. I know that it is automatically zeroed out to 400 meters. What I do is zoom in and get the actual height of the target and then either hold over or under based on the range estimate that I have for that target. I never shoot for heads on zombies and I only take headshots on players when I am 100% certain of a hit due to the stationary aspect of the other players in the game.

With a DMR and knowing your ranges you can accurately hit targets out to 600-700 meters in the game with it. Otherwise it is best to try and stalk into a better position/range and try to ambush them unless you are part of a sniper team with an AS50 or M107.

The 107 is my Fav, 1 shot and they go down. I also like the SPR, lighter and quiter then the 107.
