Yep, and please dont buy the TSD, WELL, UTG crap. If your going to become a sniper, get a real rifle platform, like i said in my other post. And just in case you didnt know, sniping is not "headshots from 300feet". Its more crawl for 3 hours, get no kills and report back to your team. If thats for you, then go for it!
Of course every area has their own playing fields, and things will be different, but make sure you think long and hard before sinking 1000$+ into something that you "may" like.
But you've got the idea, maybe even try to borrow a rifle, and try it out for a game or too!
