 Marksman Training missed shots

Hi, I'm trying to complete marksman training in AA3, but can't hit the distant targets. I'm holding breath until the view zooms in as much as possible, and my sight is lined right up with the target, but I still miss. I run the game at 1440x900 so that the targets are most visible, but can't make the grade. It's getting very frustrating. Any ideas why this is happening?

Couple of things that might help. 1 try not to hold your breath so long, that eats up time and next thing you know the target is down and another one is popping up. 2 When aiming through the scope on the furthest target try and get the V part of the site to sit on the target like a hat, i know that sounds stupid but it'll work, remmeber with AA3 they added bullet drop so you might be aiming at the center of the target but yet you're hitting below it. 3 Practice practice practice.

Thanks, that's really good advice. I'll try it out and post back what happens.

Awesome, your advice helped a lot. I aimed high and managed an expert rating on each course. Thank you!

My problem is actually seeing the recticule, even at the highest detail, its still blurry. I'll try the "hat" method though. hopefully it'll do the trick.

edt: didn't work for me. Its those very distant targets that i have issues with, and it takes 3 or 4 shots to get it, so i'm loosing 3 or 4 targets because of the ammo loss. the initial 2 or 3 rows i can do without any problems.

only take one shot per target, if you miss, let it go
