No one hates snipers or their rifles. We hate newbies who show up and immediately beeline towards being a sniper, without actually understanding the difference between real sniping and airsoft sniping.

And yes, a sniper rifle capable of discharging a 0.36g or 0.40g at 380fps is considerably more dangerous than an AEG firing 0.25g at the same velocity. Even though the muzzle velocity remains a constant, there is a big difference in muzzle energy between the three weights. Basic physics. And goggles only cover the face.
