Viper Hood Pro (Long Sleeve vs Half Sleeve)
The viper hood pro itself without cape is more suitable for rifleman to use. It create better mobility to the users while attacking or falling back. It can also show your gears like plate carrier / chest rig out which most players prefer.
Here's come the problem, long sleeve or half sleeve for me?
I would say it really depends on the user preference. Long Sleeve provide better concealment but with ghillie might result some players get stuck while frequently reload the rifle. Meanwhile you are losing some concealment using half sleeve. For personal preference, we understand that some of us would like to show their original suit sleeve out under ghillie so that half sleeve should be a choice for you.
Viper Hood Pro + Cape v2 or not or Cobra suit?
That might be a question to you when you are choosing a combo set or just the Viper Hood Pro. With the cape the function is just like the Cobra suit. However, because the Viper Hood Pro + Cape v2 is not one-piece, this might cause the the cape flapping and not covering enough both sides of the body.
If you are using plate carrier, Viper Hood Pro might be more suitable for you.
Before talking about the advantages of cape, we must know that if your arms move and then the other parts of the suit will follow the movement when you wearing the one-piece ghillie. This might explode where you at so it requires slow motion of movement. In this case, cape will not cause that kind of problem.
On the other hand, Viper Hood + Cape v2 provide 2 kind of playstyles. If you have both sniper and rifle, you can use the Viper Hood Pro only and attach the Cape v2 while playing sniper.
The Cobra suit are one-piece and cannot be separated. This is more suitable for sniper as both sides of your body will be covered by the ghillie. You can sneak slowly and till reaching the enemies back easier compare to Viper Hood Pro, but again, it is really based on what you like and needs. There is no absolute choice for you as a sniper or rifleman.
