Why dont we just decrease the Sniper Squad Size to 1 while giving the Second Man as a Vet 2 Bonus?
Would in my opinion allow for counter-play, making the Sniper more expensive (both man at together at 540) while also giving better scaling to the Unit (could receive buff as exchange for only being one man, and the second one gives late Game scaling).
And more cheap but specialized hard counters like bikes.
Easiest solution would be reducing both snipers to 1 man squads and balance them with their general stats like firerate etc. But Relic apparently loves the idea to give 1 faction a practically uncounterable unit assuming the player who is using it isnt half braindead or unaware of the situation. Get 2 or the ideal number of 3 and the match is decided. Especially in 2v2+ . And its sad for me to say that, because im a very soviet heavy kind of player who likes to do both 1v1's and 2v2's with my mate.
