Would be really nice to hear some experiences and examples while playing the sniper role out on the field however...if anyone would wish to post, it would be of great help.
So I showed my friends this thread, and many of them backed off the idea of becoming one, while my cousin(also my age) is still determined to try out the role when he hits 18. Who knows, maybe he will like it...
For me...A fully automatic AEG would be much more exciting
For those looking to buy an airsoft sniper for there first airsoft gun...I would recommend this thread(just get passed a bunch of lol's) and it will be very helpful to you
Was just posting a joke, whenever I see the word 'movement' after another word, I chuckle.
Best most common story I can provide, more a typical use I adopt, is for base attacks, namely the large 80 x 80ft base at a local field (surrounded by open field for about 180ft, then thick forested areas and roads). In the past I'd move ahead of the team, no ghillie, M24, MP5 and G19................. sneak into a spot to be able to see defences at the walls and in the towers, and within range of my BBs getting there. Radio to my team their defences and such, wait til they are in position, then I'll start "shooting for effect", stirring up the guys, keeps their heads down as my rounds slap near them, makes it difficult for them to spot and report the directions the attacks are from. Every once in awhile I'll fling BBs at the walls on the OTHER side of the base and hit them, a good 350ft away or so, just to fuck with their heads. THis kind of attack, kills don't mean much at all, psychological warfare is the main weapon a sniper will use. If a guy has had rounds hit near his head, he'll be less inclined to pop up for too long to shoot at the attacking force. So, after a lot of attrition goes one, and there are only a few people attacking left, and a few defending, I'll leave my rifle in the woods, rush in with a couple others to clear out the rest, even if it's pistol in close quarters to clean the small buildings.
Sorry for the long paragraph, but it's a common thing to do for those that multitask airsoft roles. Not so much a DSM, am a sniper with assaulting skills, or an assaulter with a precision rifle on my back. I use all I am able to do, or equipped to do, to help where I can in the game.
