    people like it for the one shot kills and the fact that is a bolt- action sniper rifle, yeah its not more powerful in real life, but in the game it is.

    I never liked the Intervention pre-prestige, and I couldn't understand why someone would want a sniper with such insane kickback. After I prestiged, I can't get back into the .50 cal and have been using the Intervention over all other snipers. It does seem that I get fewer hit markers with the Intervention than I do with the .50 cal, so that's why I use it. :closedeyes:

    if u get no scoped or quick scoped with the intervention it admitidly almost always looks good but with the barrett if they miss they have like 9 other bullets on demand to shoot at you, tbh i think the barrett is for the not so good snipers who know they will 7/10 times miss the first shot, also a close up fight with the barrett you will press the trigger 6 or 7 times until u get the kill whereas killing close by no scoping looks good but thats all arguable. tbh i think intervention is for shoot to kill.

    Nobody should take a 50 cal shot and survive.

    What are you guys talking about. Both have same dmg and are both 1 shot kills. You trade off a bigger clip and a higher rate of fire for barely anymore accuracy on the intervention. The intervention is there for show and for sniper lobbies.

    Never listen to the damage graphs on COD4 they're HIGHLY misleading. The snipers BOTH get 1 shot kills frequently just the intervention will generally be a 1 shot kill much more frequently basically everytime, as for a 50 cal it's an upper-chest shot for a semi-guaranteed 1 shot, but even that could screw up. I'm not a fan of the whole 50 cal system because I believe the gun doesn't belong in this game because realistically it should be able to shoot down helicopters in a few shots. They should of just kept the m40/dragunov(it's in SP but not MP?)/r700(not a fan but I know people who are). They took the right step in some areas but took a lot of steps back in areas of guns. Yes sweet more gun attachment support but the lack of fan favorite guns really bothers me still with this game.

    I disagree, I have over 1500 kills with each gun and they both have the same damage to me. I initially started with the intervention, but the larger clip and higher rate of fire won me over. The recoil of the 50 resets faster than the intervention allowing faster accurate shots.

    Intervention is good because it mostly 1 shots and the 50cal sometimes isnt a 1 shot and I can't quick scope with the 50cal. :cursing:
