Your comment need to be clarified.
- New players need not to start at the sniper role. Being an effective and safe sniper mean understanding the basic dynamic of airsoft, it's ballistic and tactics.
- Lone wolf snipers are useless to the team effort.
- If you seek action and kills, be a sniper inside an offensive team, providing long range accurate support and observation.
That being clarified, I agree. A noob with a hot gun is dangerous. A certified noob with a hot gun is safer, but not as effective as a seasoned player that have a few game under his belt using an AEG.
Sniping is not about being 7331 à la COD. If the trill of the stalk, the hunt and the painfull progression in very unconfortable, prolonged situation is your thing, then the sniper role will be fun to you.
Kill seakers and head shot faggots need not apply.
