I like the human sniper, just because the fact you can get ammo. The beam is nice when someone is running away and you have to shoot fast

Yeah! I also don't like the beam rifle, because it overheats if you shoot to fast!

Well, they both have their advantages and disadvantages

i.e.

The beam rifle does not leave a smoke trail (but the beam can be seen)
The sniper rifle has (relatively) infinite ammo (keep getting ammo)
The beam rifle does shoot faster (but does overheat)
The sniper rifle makes a noise when zooming in (so even if they're not screen cheating, they'll know you're about to shoot someone)(beam rifle does not)
etc.

Everyone who has played more than a few times knows of these. Just figured I'd point them out. I personally, if I had a choice, would pick the beam rifle for multiplayer and the sniper rifle for single.

The beam rifle does make a sound, but only if you've got a decent sound setup. It's pretty much a subwoofer frequency... the sound is kind of a low hum noise.

That's, like, a high pitched sound.
As mentioned previosuly, it's a low sound.

My last input, I'll say it's a:
