Sniping is the act of firing at a target from a medium to long range, with a firearm or any other ranged weapon. Sniping usually involves a potent bolt action rifle with a scope, although there are semi automatic platforms such as the M82A1, M21. Calibers for these weapons usually include 12.7mm and 7.62mm and more. The art of sniping usually requires two people, spotter and shooter, the spotter usually finds the target and does calculations for wind speed, distance and deviation because of the Coriolis effect. Sniping IS NOT limited to achieving kills with scoped weapons. Marksmen and snipers ARE not the same thing, Marksmen are found within squads. Snipers are found in the company or battallion
Be polite. Be efficient. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
the only way to avoid a snipe is to put up two fingers to indicate you are aware of the snipe, or to smile and make it a nice picture- because if it's a good picture, it's not a good snipe
other forms of this game include dropping. dropping is when you plant an object on a friend without their knowledge, usually resulting in a ridiculous appearance.
the best combination is a drop snipe because then you have a ridiculously embarrassing picture of your friend to tag on facebook
