I often see stuff like "optic snipez" or "optic pro snipez" or "cryptic shadowz" but they don't make much sense to me. How doth one become an "optic snipe"?

Sure I could use the dictionary meanings. However, I see no correlation to MW2. I just don't understand how you can be a |x OpTiC sNiPeZ x|.

Don't get so angry, Cramtron. Sorry if I offended you and your gamertag.

I don't know whats worse. A name with sniper in it, or a name with a bunch of numbers thrown on.

My gamertag is Cramtron, and you didn't make me angry.
Anyway, I think Mike V. hit the nail on the head. CyPtiK SnIpEz is probably the coolest sounding thing in the world, to a twelve-year-old.
