1) a highly skilled Marksmen who uses his skills in Fieldcraft, Marksmanship, and will to survive to take the vital shot which could decide a battle
"One Shot, One Kill"
2) A member of a FPS team who uses a Rifle usually equiped with a Telescopic sight and picks off targets. They come in 2 varieties Newbs and Pro. Newbs tend to use it and shoot anyone and then brag about being 1337 and say i sniped 59 people on Halo today. A pro sniper waits for that 1 shot, be it a Mger who has hassled the time or a enemy sniper. He doesnt galavant after kills he is there to make sure his team survive. Like a true sniper he doesnt brag, or claim to be uber 1337, he just does his job and carries on
1) He was like a sniper, taking his shot then disapearing in to the darkness
2) Team leader: take out that mg
Newb: I aint gonna do that when i could pick off these 5 easy targets
Pro: ill do it
