I move that we entertain the concept of letting new users get sniper rifles.
However, we do tell them atleast once that is it a bad idea. Afterwards when they get it and try to game it and get horribly roasted on the field by insane amounts of BB fire that they could never hope to keep up with. We refer them back to the post that that we told them not to purchase a sniper rifle and tell them "we told you so".
"Its only a little bit on fire"
