I remember that mission. you use an M21. I admit, it was pretty badass. but I do agree that the whole "I'm good at it in MW2, why not airsoft? is totally stupid.

I laugh at people who always rage about getting the high fps weapons, AEG or rifle alike. Totally not needed as long as you have a good hop-up and you actually KNOW how to shoot. I like the quick scoping remark by ap27. Cracked me up..

I highly doubt any of them were going to go play an organized skirmish with them, most of them looked like plinkers. so why not just get a BB gun? I dont get it!

why do you guys think snipers attracked the young crowd so much?

Don't forget doing a 360 before you quickscope. If you "hard scope" you're a try hard or a noob. Clearly that wasn't why sniper classes were put in the game.

cause airsoft noobs think that because real sniper rifles have huge range, airsoft snipers should have huge range.

sniper roles have been romanticized throughout movie and gaming culture. That's the bottom line.

I totally agree - the role has been "played-up" way too much. The majority of kids are cowards today. I remember playing speed-ball (indoor paintball) with teenagers and they thought I was mad charging up our left flank to get the snake. All they did was moan and sit in the back of the field.

Its the canadians that were called the storm troopers, Thats the Nickname the Germans gave the canadians because of how fast they took land.
