The long range fire by individual marksmen was replaced by machine guns. Machine gun manuals had the technique for long range fire putting lots of rounds into a "beaten zone" and they had the sights for it. Pretty much had to do it from a tripod. MG long range fire itself was generally replaced by the advancement in light weight unit mortars as 81 and 60 mm mortars did a better job. Still a good concept in the days before MGs and small mortars.
