View Full Version : Sam should be able to hold his breath longer while sniping.

Okay, if Sam can hold his breath underwater for over 2 minutes(according to the book he can hold it somewhere near 5)then how come he can only hold his breath while sniping for like 5 seconds.I think he should be able to hold his breath longer.But I'm only 1 person with 1 opinion.

becuase in real life you're not supposed to hold your breath that long or you'll get disoriented or whatever. 10 seconds max while sniping. I went to Marksmanship training, so i should know. Google:Naval BMR Chapter 11.(basic military requiremnts for the Navy ch. 11 small arms.) and then find then section on shotting correctly. B.R.A.S.S. :Breath, Relax, Aim, Slack, Shoot. it should tell you there.

NVM.i found it for ya.

scroll down to the BRASS section.

This is to stop you from just snipeing everything that moves. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif It really has nothing to do with what a real human can do, but the sniper needs to have some limitations.

He should put the sniper between his legs and hold it there.

When you hold your breath, your heart starts beating harder to compensate for the lack of oxygen, causing the arteries in your hands to expand more dramatically, meaning your aim will get shakier. It woud be cool, though, if his aim slowly got more and more shaky as his breath ran out.

not to mention, You usually have plenty of time to pull off a shot. And you guys are right about the breathing thing. I tried it lately, and you can't hold the gun steady for more than a couple seconds, especially if you've been running around, like Sam.

in reality the breath hold is only for a second or two in real life while shooting.. mikeiron is correct about the heart starting to compensate, plus running around and then attempting to place accurate fire on target just adds to the mix because it is harder to have correct breath control.
