It's NOT COOL at all to have someone running around with a high powered rifle and has only played a few games.

I myself eventually want to get into becoming a sniper or counter-sniper but I'm going to wait till I have more experience. It all really boils down to safety. Can you handle a high powered rifle safely? How many games have you played? Can you be trusted with a hot gun and use it safely? Can you judge distances?

In addition being a sniper IMHO is kind of boring work. You sit in a bush or tree all day waiting for someone to come by and ambush. Sometimes snipers only get 10 shots in a day. The thing is that snipers are masters of concealment, camouflage, and bushcraft. Where they really shine is relaying enemy movements back to the team so that you're better able to engage from an advantageous position.
