The fact that they have never bothered to fix spawncamping snipers with simple additions like a small house over the vehicle terminal doesn't instantly mean they are impossible to keep in check. Also we have spawning vehicles from the deathscreen now, so much of these things can be circumvented. Also I wouldn't call a single situation where the Infiltrator can be useful a sudden "nothing keeps snipers in check" anyway. In general gameplay, the Sniper can be kept in check. As for shooting people at Sunderers, you rarely see that and for two reasons: People don't make the effort, and the snipers who do it will have a limited angle to fire upon and will be quickly neutralized by the angry players who will countersnipe them or force them off their spot. And it's rarely ever because a sniper did it. It's more likely that an LA or SMG infil went into a choke and messed it up, or did some hit&run attacks and is now kiting half a dozen players who are looking for them. But an actual sniper? Rarely ever. Hell, if it was so effective, I would have seen some sniper video's doing stuff like that, but those are conspicuously absent. If there was anyone who would see this disruption of the supply chain by a friendly sniper, it's me. Because I'm the guy that as an LA is doing the supply train disrupting behind enemy lines. I'm not saying snipers are incredibly weak, I'm saying they are kept in check and don't do magic stuff like single-handedly disrupting entire reinforcement lines. They should have ****** off with KD. Keep the K, remove the D, because it creates D's. Thanks for recognizing that Also, your "perfect definition of a sniper" also applies to SMG infils, or an LA setting up an Ambush, or a smart HA that doesn't need stealth to set up an ambush, or an engi/Medic who sets up an ambush... Hell it just means "setting up an ambush" and can be done with vehicles as well, it's in no way a definition of a sniper at all! Worse! A good sniper doesn't fire when someone walks through his crosshair, he leads the target! A good sniper will practically never have his target walk through his crosshair at all!
