20 Sniper Fails
Sniping has been a core component of multiplayer games since the advent of shooters like Quake. This element of the game persists with the likes of first and third person shooters like Call of Duty, Halo, and Gears of War.
Generally speaking, snipers are hated—and with good reason: no one likes campers, especially those who pick you off from the safety of distance. Still, the role of a sniper takes a lot of skill despite its infamy in videogames.
The reason most people take to the sniper rifle is simply because the weapon is the longest reaching, and typically most damaging weapon in the game. The sniper rifle is the ideal weapon for taking out enemies at any distance—even in close range, if you've mastered the art of 'quickscoping'. In spite of its slow reload and how vulnerable it makes snipers, the damage potential is worth the trade.
That said, if you're not very good at sniping, you're gonna have a bad time. This article takes a look at the top 20 worst sniper fails.
