In my opinion no. If you are a good sniper however e.g. good shot and provide intel to squad mates I would say go for it but as a sideline only there are a few dedicated snipers in my corp and on maps not suited to sniping they regret having limited front line fittings and have spec'd into such as sniping is very situational and if your an amazing sniper what usually happens 5-6 blueberries decide that because your racking up kills they should come and sit next to you because you have a good spot and will more than likely attract unwanted attention or keep trying to block your scope so they can snipe from there not you.

What Carlos says is true, but a truly good sniper doesn't have to worry about blueberries, cause they are so crazy with their positions that no one else wants to go their. The only bad sniping matches, don't exist. There hasn't been a map yet where I can't get at least 10 kills. If you doubt whether you should put points in, get out military gear and see if you can hit your targets, if so, then train. If not, forget about it and move on.
