Snipers? You already know he's there. But there's nothing you can do about it. If he's terrible, you're in luck, as that's one less enemy to worry about.

Terrible Snipers will just settle for doing nothing by bodyshots on you (a majority of my deaths to Snipers recently were due to bodyshotting Machnia users), so they're still annoying.

I meant the even worse ones that try to go for headshots even if they know they aren't able to pull it off.

Oh, well in that case, they suck.

But at any rate with the topic itself, I hate good Snipers more for reasons stated everyone else stated. I can deal with a competent Spy more often than not barring lag. But I have to let other players take the fall or deal with good Snipers- and sometimes the bodyshotters.

Spies....*sigh*...spies. I become too complacent quite often and they eat me up.

To my experience, in general:

Skilled Ambassador Spy = Skilled Huntsman Sniper > Skilled Sniper >> Skilled Spy >>> (Average Sniper/Spy) >>> Bad Sniper > Bad Spy

I've dealt with both on regular occasions. Spies that pick you off as soon as you let your guard down or engage the enemy. Ones that make smart picks and don't just stab the nearest enemy. Ones that actually use and can aim with their revolver.

Snipers that can quickscope me as a Scout at close range...

I dislike the Snipers more.

spies, being the sniper, they're your most hated enemy, snipers are easy enough to take down.

I generally play Sniper/Scout, so...
Changing this when Golden Sun 4 comes out.

Sniper. Given the choice to play against a platinum level spy or an invite level sniper, I'll take the spy any day.

If you get stabbed by a spy it's your own fault.

If you get headshot, there was nothing you could have done.

Assuming he's anywhere close enough for you to hit or really just notice him at all before he blasts a hole in your skull.

Competent spies vs. Competent snipers?
Spies are worst.
Are we going by the average class?
Snipers are usually terrible.
