Crimson PSA on I wanna be a Sniper.
Q; I want to out range AEG;s what do you buy
A: You don't.. you build and tune. other then some really rare and 2000.00 plus custom made guns.. you cant buy a ready to go sniper. No not even from the cool youtube dude.
Q: I have 200.00 and wanna be a sniper what should I buy.
A: Stocks .. because to be effective you need 3 times that. Just the nature of the role.
Q: How do I learn to be a Sniper.
A: Sniper is a Role, A mindset not a weapon. Take your aeg put it in semi auto and play a few games. taking one single shot when the enemy is in range. because as said above unless you can build tune and afford a proper rifle that's the range you will be getting.
Q: What should my first piece of gear be.. A rifle or a ghilli
A: Neither. Buy a good Radio and headset. Your first job is Recon. Telling the guys with the heavy firepower where the enemy is. Then if you get the opportunity taking a shot at high priority targets. To help the team.. no to rack up kills. You are a support role.
Q: But Noverich said......
A: Play more youtube less........
Q; So crimson why are you a sniper if its so hard.
A: Because first and for most I played other roles for years first.. I learned the ins and outs of the game I learned and enjoy building all types of Airsoft guns. Because to be effective as a sniper you have to know your prey as well as your own limitations.
Q: So how do I start. I saved up some money and I wanna join the cool kids club.
A: Pick up a Jg Bar 10.. or a L96. Don't fall for all these shoots 550 out of the box built for you.. Trust me they don't and if they do they don't for long. Learn to play with it bone stock and upgrade.. but dont go buy a big spring and think its going to make you a super sniper.. build for reliability first. Trigger group and piston first. before you up your Joules. Good BB's are a must. The range comes from hop up and bucking combo, not fps. Joules is how you get your hits called at 300ft.
This is the very basics here. Feel free to ask me questions im always willing to help. Sniping is not for everyone. And no one should play the role in there first year or airsoft. I have seen so many people leave the game because the spent a lot of hard-earned money to realize its not what they think its going to be. Many games I may only go though 1 mag total. Because my job is to win for my Team.., not myself.
