I dont recall any retailers trying to market any type of sniper rifle that has the same capabilities of a normal gun.Besides, getting hit with an airsoft BB going 560 fps is very diffrent from getting hit by a 22 short going 560.

Its not just with an airsoft sniper rifle, that goes the same with any airsoft gun, you call out for a mercy kill, some people dont, but if your running a hot gun and you light some one up in the face with a 3-5 round burst at near point blank, guranteed you may be ejected from the game or your gona get punched in the face.

Because a spotter is handy to help you

A. Cover you in twigs , leaves and foliage.
B. Cover and support your ass in a close fire fight. Especially if a sniper doesnt carry a anything more than a pistol as a side arm.
C. Keep you company and watch your back when your sniping and focused on whats infront of you, sometimes you dont know whats comming up behind you.
D. Be bait by sitting about 30 feet ahead and chain smoking singing quotes from H.M.S. Pinafore
