A Sniper is one who hunts snipes, a bird which the term originally came from in england. Snipes were notorious for flying away on the first sight of trouble, which prevented hunters from sneaking up to them. The only method of killing the snipe was to kill them at long range, which required considerable accuracy. Thus the "sniper" was born.
