I've found that beiing a sniper is pretty pointless unless you are working well in a team and have radios. When I'm a sniper I spend more time calling locations and directing movement than actually shooting. More often than not when I take a shot I'm greeted with a hail of pellets from the rest of the opfor that I can't answer to with a bolt action rifle or gas pistol. I good sniper in a good location calling opfor locations can be the difference between success and faliure. It also feels great when you see the wtf look on someones face when they get hit and never heard a shot.

Other subtle problem with sniping is that the range of your gun is not much better than an AEG so you better hit first time!

They think that its just aim and shoot and the BB hits them and that's it you got a kill an no one knows where you are.

Why would anyone want to sit in a bush the whole time, rather than get out there and have some real fun?

Maybe because silently dropping a round on a guy without him hearing it, seeing the rest of his crew run for cover and stay put forever........................ is fun for some people? I love tying up a squad when it happens, just gotta remind them every few minutes that you are still watching them closely....................

The real airsoft snipers don't sit on ass all day waiting for someone to come to them. The good airsoft snipers are hunters, they listen to the radio, find out where parts of the other team are, go into that area and stir shit up, maybe keep those in the enemy base IN the enemy base for a period of time, allowing his/her team to deal with lesser numbers of enemy when trying to accomplish a mission. Sure, a guy with a high cap in his AEG can do the same, but not quietly, nor with the discipline of firing one shot every 5-10mins from a different angle that a sniper normally does. Seen that happen even recently, I went hunting and cleared a bunch of them. if it's one guy with a sniper rifle that has the fire discipline, I'll be more cautious because the sniper hasn't given me a trail of BBs to follow to his location. I'll still go after them though, will just use different tactics to do so.

Thumbs up

1) Uh... No

2) I'd waaay more prefer a sniper rifle in a woods game, as my quote says: "Snipers are the least likely to be hit, yet the most likely to be hunted."

3) Learning to handle an airsoft rifle takes some time, you need to have good distance estimations, wind directions and bb curving estimations, and some more stuff that takes some training :P

4)Chyea! I got my first fully auto gun when I was 7, yes 7, I used it to learn the sport and stuff like that for 2 years and went to sniper when I was 9, I'm 13 now, I've been told that I'm a highly advanced sniper for my age, and I have to say I kinda agree, 4 years has done well for me :P. I'm 13 and I've been sniping for longer than anyone I know. I personally loooove sniping :P

I forget where I heard this and it's kinda random but also fits the topics, In the real millitary, it takes about 10k bullest per kill with a fully auto gun. It takes one per kill with a sniper rifl. That's 3.5k as aposed to 60 cents! Snipers save lives (even though they also take em) and save money.

You are quoting the stats from the Vietnam war regarding bullets expended per confirmed kill.

And my head is starting to ache, gonna log off before the flames start from others.

It's one thing to shoot, good for you on that by the way, it's another to claim you are a sniper.

1. Time, which you have really a drop in the bucket compaired to most
2. Experience, again I hear that bucket a rattling
3. Age, there is only so much a 13 yr old can do. Be thankful you've been able to as much as you say you have. Again keep building on that experience, and then maybe you might grow into a better shooter, not sniper.
4. Snipers generally go through some intensive training in field crafts, cam and concealment, and more, so other than trying to avoid the lunch time monitor to get you back to your classroom I don't think you've had that training.
5. Remember the age group in which you are talking to. IE us, most have military experience or are in the military, and some have many years of actual airsoft experience, and don't try and confuse real steal with airsoft because other than appearance they are not the same.
