Seeing how this thread started, where it has gone and the amount of GOOD info in it, I vote for a sticky, seeing as how way too many new players want to play the "glorious" sniper role. Things are well laid out in here, it's even worthy of being a FAQ of sorts.

Any +1s out there?

Very good decision on his part...maybe I could recommend him buying a gun like that when 18 so he to can try out different positions in the airsoft world.

I cannot believe that my thread has a chance to be stickied...very very cool. This thread has been very helpful to my buddies and I am sure it has been to others with the info posted on it.

Might I suggest he get an M16a4 mod0 SPR it shoot 400 fps and is very accurate. He can mount a decet scope on it use it as a 'close ranged' sniper rifle and he can still put attacments like m203s, and master keys. If he wants he could get an extended barrel to augment accuracy.

Best wishes to your cousin and his potential rifle,

PvtSpartykus.

Maybe if you can edit your first post, you might have the option to sticky it yourself. Otherwise it's up to the mods to make the decision.

You have my vote. There is indeed a lot of really good information in here.

Agreed for sticky.

Personal tactics and experience aren't generally something shared, let alone you can READ about them, but until practical application is had, it's only knowledge.

I only got my hunting/stalking experience cause I'm a farm raised hick who been in the bushes since I was five years old. The joys of farm land.

If It is possible, get permission to walk around the airsoft field and figure out where stuff is.

The field I play on I know pretty damn well and I know where to be to do what, but that didn't happen over night, took a couple months of playing.

But ya gotta remember to explore as many roles on the "combat field" as you can, learn what sort of tactics work for which situations, then mix them up and apply.

Example. I can go up a tree or IN a tree and provided a quick burst of fire to gather an enemies attention then lure them into a trap, or distract them long enough for another player to get into a good position, or just do what I usually do and pick people off at 100-150ft on semi auto.

Joys of being in the tree's is I have extended range as I have more room for bb drop, so I can really reach out an touch you. Noone see's it coming from above hehe.

Team work is key. I'm generally solo on the field, but I always have the radio on and provide intel when I can.

Anywho it's dinner time, enough talking for now.

+1 on sticky. This has been kept pretty on-topic and clean.

Sometimes the first post can be editted with an option to make it a sticky. Don't bother sending anything to the mods, if one is watching this they might do it, might not. If anyone has sway around here, it'd be me, I'm good buds with Bloodsport.

I can't advise going up tree to shoot unless dying is part of your plan. Once you are found, there is no whay down without being overkilled.

The best way to engage without being found is to shoot from unexpected places that allow a covered/hidden retreat. Shoot and scoot, especially when you can't outrange your ennemy.
