When the company tool gets better updated something will needed to couter balance this. The 1stUSSS and 2nd USSS historically only recruited the best. They didnt have 1000 men or 100 a company. That is the issue. Too many sharpshooters in this game.
    Perhaps there will be limits on the amount of sharps, cav, or arty that can be picked in a round when they all get implemented. I know the devs are already working on an officer limit for example; I don't remember exactly if they ever announced a limit on different branches specifically, but it should help balance things out.

    In private events, the event organisers could also do the balancing themselves of course.

    A 10 sharpshooter limit per team seems pretty fair honestly.

    What defines a sharpshooter in your opinion? Is it the way they fight, the weapons they use, etc?

    Many sharpshooters during the war used standard weapons of the day like the Springfield or Enfield. Also, many sharphooters weren't part of official sharpshooter units, they were just men who had good shooting skills and would act as sharpshooters when needed.

    Point is you can't really limit sharpshooters because anyone can decide to act as a sharpshooter, the unit and weapon don't matter.

    I would suggest reading this little book:
    https://www.americanrifleman.org/art...the-civil-war/

    Gives a lot of information. Indeed in most cases sharpshooters where the best of their regiment and where called out when needed. Either as sharpshooters or as a small team of scouts in curtain terrain. Almost never went a sharpshooter on his own.

    Other great source:

    Well not only designated units held sharpshooters. It was adopted within regular units to have sharpshooters in their group. Like Legion also mentioned

    It still wont make a difference. I could assign my unit to act as sharpshooters. Limiting a specific unit won't make any difference, the enfields and springfields used by my unit are just as capable as the rifles used by sharpshooters (besides the whitworth).

    I don't understand what limiting sharpshooter units will do in-game.

    Gee.
    That would piss off the whole 13th PA Reserve. (A.K.A. 42nd PA) The whole regiment considered themselves sharpshooters. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There are at least 10 companies that call themselves sharpshooters as well, and most of these units have more than 10 members. How do you sort that?

    That is exactly what I mean. So many sharpshooters in this game. We might just make Sniper Elite 5 and in the end mission you assassinate Jefferson Davis, Abraham Lincoln and Adolf Hitler.
