So there are once again changes to the sniper class in Battlefield 1, now known as the "Scout" class. One of the major changes being that the class no longer has C4, so you can't take out armor the way you could in Battlefield 4, and although we most likely didn't have access to all the gadgets during the Battlefield 1 Closed Alpha, it doesn't appear that the sniping class will have access to gadgets like Claymores or Laser Tripmines like Battlefield Hardline, so you really have to stay mobile to be more effective.
Overall I like the changes. It forces you to focus on your sniping ability if you want to use the class effectively since you can't just depend on C4 kills, and you can't camp too long because you can't depend on Tripmines to watch your back.
