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.
Well snipers are support players, and depending on the style of match (not sure which are done in airsoft) they can play a vital role for objectives and scouting.
And I realize sniping isn't all a blaze of glory like in the movies, and is often uneventful for long periods of time.
