Pistol Sniping

Alright, it seems that a lot of poeple dont know that 3 pistol headshots = death in multiplayer...Yeah, yeah, I know it looks weak next to some of the other weapons in the game, but then again, how tough does your rocket launcher toting friend look after you pistol snipe him before he even gets a shot off? I rest my case. Also, just because the targeting reticule isnt red, doesnt mean you cant hit your enemy. For example, its easily possible to snipe a guy on the top of one of the blood gulch bases from the middle of the level... Also, the pistol combined with a shotty or plasma rifle makes a deadly combo. You now have a weapon that can be used close or semi-long range(the pistol), and a dedicated close range weapon.
