As far as the peons that can kill with one shot from 50 miles, I'm not sure we're talking about the same game. Ghost Recon? Yeah, sure. But what I liked about OFP was that there was definitely a medium range where you had to to be cautious - where fire was suppressive but you had time to react and get cover. Remember, most battles in OFP were taking place at 100-200m, and in real-life, people can drill you pretty good with assault rifles at that range as well.
