Also,this hard mode sounds nowhere near realistic eough for me, as not only is there gravity and wind, but crosswinds, humidity, temperature, grain in the bullet, barrel wear and even time of day to take into account, as well as the famous coriollis effect.Of course that just my opinion and the game probably has bigger flaws than lack of realism, so maybe im rambling.
Why not play this game I've thought up of, it sounds like it suits you. You can crawl to a location for several days, constantly adjusting your camouflage all the time, and pressing 'A' to shit in your pants, whilst you are constantly making sure you are never detected by the enemy. You can do all your little calculations, blow a guys brains out, then return back to the mess at Battalion HQ where you are ignored by all your fellow soldiers and are forced to sit there eating your sausage and beans in silence. Heck why not go the whole hog. In Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, you can even return back to your country and live out the rest of your life, where you suffer from PTSD and have recurring nightmares about the amount of people you've killed, and your family feel alienated because you are no longer the person they thought you were. You press 'X' to question your life, and are angry that the government are doing nothing to help you as you get older, especially due to the sacrifices you have made for your country.
Sorry, it just annoys me when people ask for 100% realism from a game, when what they are actually asking for is a bit of authenticity. No game on an Xbox will ever truly give you that feeling of being a Sniper, because A) No one will buy it, and B) It is truly hard to be a realistic sniper in the comfort of your own home. Games are a form of entertainment, to get the feeling of being a sniper and do the stuff you want to do as listed in your comment, I recommend becoming a Sniper.
Just a side note - if it sounded like I was bashing on Soldiers/Snipers, I wasn't. One of my mates is a Sniper in the RAF Regiment and I can't think highly enough of him, there are also many perks to his job. And I myself am awaiting my selection course for The Paras. Good day
