There is one key element to being a good Sniper and it’s not your weapon. It’s having a good Spotter. Most Sniper Spotters are Snipers themselves; this is one of the reasons why they make a good Spotter.
- Spotters need to be able to help their Sniper locate their target(s).
- Spotters should be able to help with range of target.
- Spotters should be able to help their Sniper with wind speed and direction.
- Spotters need to be able to protect their Sniper while they are engaged on a target.
- Spotters & Snipers work as a team.
It’s also known that a Spotter acts as a Sniper right alongside of their Sniper partner. The two snipers will do the ‘leap frog’ maneuver. The leap frog maneuver is while one Sniper is engaging on a target the second man is being the spotter. After a shot or two are taken the two moves to a new Sniper location and the two Operators switch roles. The Sniper becomes the Spotter and the Spotter becomes the active Sniper. If you use the leap frog sniping method you can keep your opposition off guard and confused.
Being a Sniper’s Spotter can be a fun and rewarding role to be in. Happy Sniping!
