"FAVELA RISING documents a man and a movement, a city divided and a favela (Brazilian squatter settlement) united. Haunted by the murders of his family and many of his friends, Anderson Sá is a former drug-trafficker who turns social revolutionary in Rio de Janeiro’s most feared slum. Through hip-hop music, the rhythms of the street, and Afro-Brazilian dance he rallies his community to counteract the violent oppression enforced by teenage drug armies and sustained by corrupt police.

At the dawn of liberation, just as collective mobility is overcoming all odds and Anderson’s grassroots Afro Reggae movement is at the height of its success, a tragic accident threatens to silence the movement forever.

I'll just compare every siglne sniper.Barret .50 Cal: Semi-Auto(good fire rate), almost always a one hit kill. Mediocre accuracy, so its not very reliable.Intervention: Bolt Action (Slow Fire rate) Same damage as barret.50 cal, high accuracy, so those one hit kills almost always happen.WA2000: in terms of stats, its just a barret.50 cal with slightly less power, slightly mroe accuracy, and more ammo.M21: Worst Damage, but has the most controllable recoil for a semi-auto sniper (but dont even think of using this gun.)The intervention should be ur #1 choice. Highest accuracy is better than highest rate of fire. With the barret, wa2000, and m21, ull find urself spraying more often, which is a bad habit of a sniper. It boils down to intervention vs barret. Whichever you like is better, since they have same damage, but intervention has more acuracy, which is more important than fire rate. However, barret does have more ammo, less recoil, and less weapon sway than intervention. The WA2000 believe it or not, would be my second choice. Although it isnt a one hit kill as often as intervention or barret, it is more accuracte than barret and has more ammo. However, the WA2000 has one MAJORMAJOR advantage: You dont need stopping power, unless u have a silencer. Why? heres the breakdown:All snipers have a base damage of 70, with no silencer (silencer makes it 50.) The damage multipliers on the wa2000 are: 1.5 on head neck, and chest, 1.0 on the body, and 1.0 on limbs.basically, you take 70 and multiply it by where u hit. a person has 100 health. So, calculation wise, the WA2000 will do 105 on the head, neck and chest without stopping power(which raises damage by an additional 40 percent) On the body and limbs, it will only do 70 damage(70 x 1=70) making it 2 hits to kill. Ok, stick with me. If you add stopping power, which multiplies damage by an additional 1.4x, you will do 147 on the head chest and neck, but u dont need that, since its a one hit kill anyway. On the body and limbs, it will take it to exactly 98 damage, barely letting the target survive, but its still a 2 hit kill. So stopping power is useless with the WA2000. So, instead of stopping power, you can use another perk, like cold blooded oh yea, and dont use the M21. and one last tip: NEVER EVER EVER SILENCE your weapon, unless ur just doing it to unlock heartbeat sensor, because damage is reduced by 28.57%.As for my class, try this out.Primary: Intervention With FMJSecondary: whatever u like, i like the M93 raffica with FMJSemtex Nades, Stun nadesPerk 1: Sleight of Hand Pro (ALWAYS use this when sniping, dont listen to noobs that say bling or scavenger.)Perk 2: Stopping Power Pro, unless ur using the WA2000 as i explained. In that case, switch to lightweight or cold blooded.Perk 3: Steady Aim Pro ( easy no-scopes, and it lets u hold breath longer, so its useful if ur not using acog scope) but ninja pro is another good alternative.painkiller deathstreak.Killstreaks: Predator missle, harriers, chopper gunner(orAC-130)OR try this : Harriers, chopper gunner(AC-130 is good), and NUKE =) i have 39 nukes =DThat concludes my long guide, hope it helped. and yes im a nerd.
