All right, heres the big sniping secret...
twitch or flick your mouse right as you hit the fire button... and kinda make the action of hitting the fire button like, stopping the flick .... ya know what I mean? You are trying to stop the twitch right on target as you fire.
Now, a flinch, a twitch or flick(w/e you want to call it) is a very small movement: probably about > < that much distance. ahh makes no sense nvm... clone

You can fire a shot, crouch, then toss a nade at ypur opponents feet like Delta 66 does....

Nades are very useful when sniping in medium to close range. I usually toss one out just to back an opponent up for distance, into a corner, or close them in against a wall or object. With nades you can basically move your opponent anywhere youd like to make aiming easier (try to premeditate where your opponent is going to land when he jumps)

Also...timing is EVERYTHING. Remember sniper has a WAY slower firing rate than a blaster or repeater does. It also holds 5 rounds per clip so its easy to run out and have to reload (sniper takes FOREVER to reload). Instead, be patient. Time your shots. Even in the middle of an intense fight, still choose your shots wisely. You can jump around and around and around all day, but wait until theres that perfect shot and take it. Remember you only have 5 shots until reload. Which leads me to my next pointer...

ALWAYS reload when you have a chance. Even if youre only 1 shot into the clip. Reload anyways. That 1 shot could be the difference. As I said before, you only have 5 rounds per clip so try to keep it that way at all times. If your an intense battle and need to reload, either run away to give yourself some time to reload, or melee melee MELEE!!!! Which brings me to my next pointer....

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE MELEE! When you need to reload or you're just that close to your opponent, stab him in the eye! Its just as deadly as a headshot from across the map. As Delta has told me before (from one of his "tests" he conducted) The melee with the sniper rifle actually has a longer reach and does more damage than melee with any other weapon. So use it. Its a good alternative when you either need to reload or just run out of ammo. Try to sidestep your way in close to an opponent and WHAP! Stick him in the forehead.

Hope this helps.

That explains that crazy melee you had against me, I thought it was lag.

If the target is jumping around like, a double tap key kind of jump, then aim at a certain spot where you know they will jump and wait for the usual stall between jumps. Sniper I'm a ninja

Pretty much wat flash said.....

Also some of you guys may have noticed my tactic.....

"Shoot 'n Stab"

I shoot you with sniper then finish you off with a knife to the head, It works well for me, Especially due to my lag & ping headshots dont always work so I aim for the chest and then melee

This isn't something i do because I always have to have a pistol on me, but if you have a sniper and a blaster on you shoot him with the sniper and finish him off with a blaster.

try not to aim up or down, but rather sideways. Keep the reticle centered and leveled at all times, and just move it sideways. Its a lot easier to aim and shoot a moving target if you move along with it, and aim a little foward, to compensate for the distance.

As Flash has already said, if you are close enough, use mele and save ammo. Even when playing with someone with cero ping, a pwnfist can come in handy.

Most people think that snaking (walikg foward while moving left and right) is a good tactic to evade being shot. Truth is, is not. If you move in a pattern, it takes me about 2 seconds or so to guess where you will land next, and that is when you get killed.
Rather, move in random patterns, but always be in control of what you are doing. For instance, sometimes i walk straight, but i duck a split second before the shot comes out. Sometimes that doesnt work, so i move left, then one step right, then all the way left, to throw him off, or do the side jump thing.
Just measure out the skill of the sniper and take it from there

That's easy for you to say but when you have a ping of 100+ you cant get that accuracy up close...
