To quote: People who play as snipers love it. People who are killed by snipers hate them.

But regardless of which end of the spectrum you're currently on, anyone can become an expert at the Zoom-in of Death with this excellent tips provided by UI Manager Steve Harris and Lead Designer of MAG, CJ Heine.

What's up? This is Steve and it's important that you know that Snipers are usually the guys supporting the rest of the team by clearing objective areas or preventing the opposing team from reaching their objectives from long range.
