Now in my own opinion I ALWAYS heard the marine snipers are the elite. What my question is, how good are army snipers? Like are they trained well or badly. Ive heard marine snipers are trained in camoflage and stalking more extensivly but what are the pros and cons of army sniper. And is it possible for a army sniper to request to be trained in the marines scout sniper program?
#2
They're probably equal. Seriously, they probably train the same way. Besides, I wouldn't want either of them shooting at me, let's just say that.
#4
Well, I'm no expert on this sort of stuff, but I would believe that a marine sniper would be better. I have no evidence behind my decision, but that's quite alright with me.

Edit: They both kill people and are trained with their weapons, so it probably just depends on the soldier with the weapon.
It all makes sense

TS = sniper wannabe, who goes airsofting on regular occasions, and uses words like alpha and delta while he is doing it.

but in answer to original question; why would their training be any different?
#8
does it really matter? would you want EITHER of them shooting at you. as long as they can pick you off from a good distance who cares how PINPOINT accurate they are. i dont care where in the body you get hit by something like a .50 caliber Barrett sniper. you're going down and you aren't getting back up. with stuff like that there are confirmed reports of people getting literally cut in half.

EDIT: ^ hes probably right. the SAS are the elite of the elite in every facet of the military.

You get sniped by a .50 cal round you pretty much evaporate, lol.


But seriously, they both are extremely accurate trained marksman who could easily kill you before you even know what zip code they are in.

Actually, the SBS are trained just as well. Just less prominent in the media. For example, they were the ones chasing Osoma Bin Laden in Afganestan just after 9/11, and only stopped when the americans told them to let them take over.

His whereabouts have been unknown since.

The Iraqi admins usually end up banning AWPs and owning them though. Then of course they ban the snipers

Then it turns into a knife fight and some kid is whining about how much better CS 1.6 is and everyone gets banned. Then a video is made and laughs are had by all.

Now I remember why I stopped playing CS...
