    Choose a sniping spot. When looking for a sniping spot, there are 3 major things to consider. They are: line of sight, protection, and escape. Try to balance them out to find the best spot. Line of sight is how much of the map can you see and be able to fire upon. Protection is whether or not people easily see you. Escape routes are places that you can safely run to if you think you have been spotted.

    Your Profile. by this I don't mean if you have a cool name or picture I'm talking about the size of a target you make. In most games there are 3 profiles, standing, crouching, and prone. Each has it's advantage in mobility, accuracy, and profile size. Ideally you want to be prone when firing but sometimes you will have to crouch or stand to get a better view. Just remember that you won't be able to move quite as well since you'll either have to stand up or crawl to get out of there.


Don't get too distracted by sniping the whole time. Make sure that someone isn't sneaking up behind you once in a while.


  • Unless you have enough experience with your sniper, don't try to snipe when you're close to other enemies.
