I'm getting tired of people not knowing the different art forms of killing someone from across the map.

Sniping-when in a elevated position and using a SNIPER rifle

Assault sniping- when running around on ground level with a SNIPER rifle

Anti-sniping- you only kill other snipers while sniping with a sniper rifle

Counter-sniping- using a sniper rifle but killing a enemy sniper from close range

Hope this helps you out in sniper calling:woop:

I've only heard of the first and fourth ones you mention (the military). Are the middle ones real or are they just used during games?

And wouldn't counter sniping be sniping someone from long distance?

EDIT - And I'm fairly certain that anti / counter sniping is the same thing.

Surely counter sniping would just be killing an enemy sniper, regardless of what weapon you were using??

That is correct.
A Counter Sniper is normaly a team of people that are used to locate the location of the attacking sniper.
Their job is just to be able to tell where the sniper is shooting from and not to eliminate them.
Counter Sniper Teams commonly have a sniper in the team because having a sniper in the team they know the tricks that other snipers would use to keep them selves concealed.

Very informative, but when you say close range snipeing, is that like no scoping?

This is also completely wrong.

Regardless of what level of height you are own.. you are still sniping..
If you are Sniping on your own, you are a sniper.. if you are sniping and in a group of people that are not snipers you are a sharpshooter or designated marksman.

You have actually completly gone against why you posted this in the first place..

Counter Sniping is just shooting a sniper with any weapon..

Assault sniping doesn't really get used too much in the real world..

While where on the topic of sniping.. Watch this

Key word in all those is.... "Sniping"

YES! We have a winner... So anytime you say someone is sniping, you are covering ALL the sniping options... What a pointless thread.

I only ever snipe in games, I don't use any other weapons.
BUT, you can sniper with an M16 or Vickers, it's just range dependent.
