i voted average. i'm fairly good i think, but i've been sniped quite a few times myself though too.
i have many spots, although it seems a good amount of players never seem to figure out where they are. now i'm not gonna tell where they are though because i don't want to give away any of my secret spots, but if you ever see me in your lobby i'd be happy to show them as long as you play it cool and don't start shooting everything up trying to kill me. would be best to send me a message first.  :lol:
 

there is no skill in sniping when the weapon is literally point and click for a kill
sniping is lame and unrewarding in gta...

 
 have you tried sniping with only the reg. sniper rifle and reg scope? i will agree the heavy sniper/advanced scope makes it almost effortless.
also it's not exactly that easy if you're by yourself and going up against multipe players. it can be quite a fun game to see how long you can last.  :lol:


^^^This so much. Just took pn a crew of 3-5 last night and it was nuts...till they brought tanks.

My sniping perch is citywide, If I see a player is spawn killing someone I will occasionally take the opportunity to climb some ladders about a block away and pop him while he is distracted trying to get his k/d ratio up.

Skull face tat plus LSPD Blue Tint on Sniper, I snipe wherever I need too.

 

Most notably spots where I got a whole lobby trying to kill me would be,

-Apartment Building roof next to LSC

-Apartment Building roof a block away from LSC(To snipe out Tanks camping LSC)

-On Large Crane at the docks by Simeon  

 

I once sniped a guy who was so far away that his car actually vanished a second after I pulled the trigger.

I would consider myself an avid sniper. If you look at my stats (tf_bumblebee03 on gta5stats.com) you will see the weapon that I have most kills with is the advanced rifle.

i really enjoy sniping people driving to LSC from top of the MazeBank tower hahaha

that place is such a vintage position to snipe anyone inside a vehicle.

you can snipe people trying to rob a helicopter from the vespussi helipad.

the reaction are awesome.

99% of the time after the kill i get the wtf reaction, followed by the hacker accusation and the pop up message... "players are voting to kick you" or "you have been reported"

My sniping perch is on the back of the train. For some reason, human players just find you irresistible and have to come and have a go.

i like to snipe snipers outside render distance.
it's their fault they got shot, had they never shot and i wouldn't know where to aim.

i do like to prey on these common sniping spots everyone is mentioning.

no lower class of snipers than the ones who use the cranes, so not obvious... they think

a perfect sniping roof must have some place to hide from helis or strafe runs from the jet.

I normally get a small chopper (since it'll have a low chance in being spotted) land on the building with a flat roof (also has good cover from Jets) & I have a good view of any player that wanders around near the $250,000 Apartment (tallest Apartment) & I killed a pair of players,about 20 times,so I'd say I'm an Average Sniper,I use the Special Carbon Rifle most of the time

I find camping very boring 

 

Not if you're near downtown LSC   :rol:

 

Yup in a full lobby you can expect someone to show up fairly quickly and when they don't realize where you are shooting from i.e two blocks away they might think your off the radar and keep going back in.

 

The place i pick has an apartment inside it so when i shoot from where i am and they try and find me on the map it'll show that i'm at that apartment and it'll make them wonder how i'm shooting from inside the apartment or that i shoot and fled to there i have never been counter-sniped from that place like i have been from others

That's a problem a lot of people have problem with in this game they don't know how to lead they shoot where the car is but by time they pull the trigger the car is out of his scope of he misses the same when people roll to break the auto-aim lock

Just now, across the street from Griefer's Palace, aiming down the street until somebody ran into view of my heavy sniper rifle's scope.

Here are my snipe stats

 

Out of jets: 4

out of helicopters: too many times to count

 

no scope: too many times to count

 

quick scope: too many times to count

 

out of car: too many times to count

 

person parachuting: probably five or six times

 

Best snipe: Standing on miitary watch tower and my friend was driving his car on the far runway while it was raining, first try through the back window

 

Notable snipes: Guy was falling off a building and I got him first try, I often snipe helicopters until they explode which isnt very hard to do, sniped a guy from the IAA builing while he was driving his adder after a few tries, sniped someone from the pier while they were pretty far away on a seashark, sniped a person mid jump on a sanchez

I get bored sitting on a roof top for too long. The helo gets me to the next spot as the action inevitably moves around town.

I'd rather just be here though.

I never have a "sniping perch". Whenever I can snipe I try. But since 1.12 nothing shows up in the scope until there several feet away. I can shoot them with Pump Shotgun or SMG. :sarcasm:

Nothing I like more than sniping people who haven't enough imagination to do anything other than drive in and out of LSC all f*cking day.

 

The way I see it, I'm encouraging people to explore more of the map.

Perch? Either the nearest rooftop to where I'm currently flying, or if I'm in a car, ...the other end of the street. Just hop out, pull out the 'hunting rifle', and bag an unsuspecting schmuck.

Anyplace with lots of cover and room to keep moving. I never like to get pinned down in one spot.
