Since lag shooting in all the other games, sniping is useless in competitive play and such. In halo, you see the best players pick up the sniper and just demolish the other team. Do you think Wii players can actually have wicked sick snipers now in competitive and non competitive play?
If you're picking up the sniper, and just demolishing the other team, its not competitive.
Competitive means you have to be better than they are to get the kill. That it to say, Its skill countered. If sniping was competitive, then sniping someone who is good would be heckalot easier than sniping someone who is not as good.
It won't be competitive until there is more depth to NOT getting sniped.
Though eliminating the luck factor for online sniping is a good start.
