I play 2 on 2 with my mate, he is OH I'm OKW.
How do you counter sniper on this map other than stuka?

I spawned fallies behind enemy lines but there are not much houses
flanking and attacking from behind is hard und easily spotted
my mate tried a scout-car but too much inf :(

double and tripple SO sniper ruiend 2 games yesterday

Are there any other possibilities to counter sniper?

I like to play OH with a Sniper on that map. Yep, im that kind of OH hipster, i actually use the sniper. And i love it. Your best bet is to try to counter snipe him with the flamebullet. Other than that, you will need to try really hard..

Cons are crap, thats why people use snipers. How do you cope with long range axis infantry? Cons cant do anything.

Buff cons long range (give em an lmg upgrade) and people will stop using snipers.

If Soviet has gone T1 and you are Okw, go Flak Track, it shuts down everything out of T1, you just have to be careful of con support with AT nades or a fast T2 for Zis.

Position the flak track so it will be infront of your infantry line so the snipers will path in to it first or stick it just behind a volks squad so if they get sniped flak track will return fire on the snipers.

They WILL use ConsLongRange AND Snipers. Until Soviet snipers lack of weaks OR Axis side will get hard counter.

Currently OH Sniper dies accidentally caught on a snag 80-90% of the time. So this is not even soft counter.
