And what style of play is a "sniper"? What do you think the sniper's role is?

Just out of curiosity.
Because bone stock, a sniper rifle has absolutly no advantage over an AEG... and because the role of sniper is incredebly difficult to play and have fun with, and 90% of noobs who start this way end up hating it. They think it's like playing like you see in the movies... when in fact it isn't even close.
