A sniper is a player who takes targets out from long range. They usually use scoped sniper rifles to score hits to other players who use less long ranged weapons. Also snipers are important for countersniping, so that other snipers can more effectively take out assault players. They usually use Remington SR8 or the H&K PSG-1, but some use the H&K G36 .
As sniper rifles the SR8 and PSG both have high damage and accuracy. Both have variable zoom scopes to increase the effective range. With the scopes the rifles can be effective up to about 800m.
Sniper vs. CamperEditSnipers like to differenciate between snipers and campers, because campers are often frowned on, due to their effectiveness. A camper usually sets an ambush, sometimes using sniper rifles, but more often using short range weapons. They usually hide from snipers and major groups of enemies. Also, snipers generally egage enemies from far inside friendly terrirory, while campers usually move into enemy territory to get more easy shots at the back of enemies.
Description: Good for sniping from long distances, and from remote places, especially ones where the player will be likely to be alive for extended periods of time, extra ammo allows the player to engage the most targets possibe without having to look for ammo. Tac goggles help for aquisition of targets at even the most extreme ranges, laser sight helps to increase effectiveness of the desert eagle, this can be replaced by an equipment of choice, as this loadout is not for forward snipers, so the pistol is only a last resort weapon.
