Solid Snake in the mgs series kinda bothers me. (spoilers)

I mean he is a great character, and I find like likable. But one thing bothers me.


Solid Snake is supposed to be a legendary Solider, and one of the best soldiers ever lived......

But he sucks at using a sniper. What the hell? Even most of those generic fps main nobodies knew how to use a sniper rifle better. When snakes uses it it wobbles like crazy. how the hell am I supposed to beat sniper wolf with it without the one medicine you have to use to take off the wobbling?

Real snipers usually have hours to prepare themselves to snipe targets.

SPOILERS

Snake, the first time was on an adrenaline rush after Wolf shot Meryl and running back through the facility hunting down a rifle.

The second time you face Wolf, it came out of no where.


END SPOILERS

Adrenaline is the enemy of the sniper.

And cutscenes have never been indicative of gameplay.

None of those cutscenes from Twin Snakes are canon.

And just because he's supposed to be a legendary soldier, doesn't mean his hands won't shake while sniping, I mean hell he's aiming without using the tripod or whatever it's called, that and I think one of the codec conversations say that he's not exactly a great sniper anyway.

Snake specializes in solo sneaking missions, I doubt he's done much sniping during his career since he's trained to go in, get out and leave as few corpses behind as possible, that's hardly the job of a sniper since a snipers job is to kill, period.
