I myself tend to stick to longer distances. I'd try being a sniper, but I thought I might try getting into the game a bit first, and going from there. Sniping seems like a bit of an experienced thing, rather than a newbie thing. My thoughts on it was to try with something like a Red Dot Scope, just cause I like all encompassing sights like that. I noticed with my old Red Dot, when used outdoors I had issues seeing the dot. But then again, I had a 20 dollar sight, so I figured that would have been most of the issue there.
