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"?

More little kids play MW2 than any other game. I think that's your answer.

You couldn't have picked up a dictionary, tc?
If you don't know how to use a book, there's also this:

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.
