We've all been there, taking out some pilots, knocking down some titans, running and gunning and shooting anything that moves. Then, out of no where, the infamous crack of the sniper rifle goes off, and your lifeless body slumps over. There he is, the guy that sits back and uses his scope as his eye, the camping sniper. Every game has one, and maybe you have taken upon that role yourself. How do you combat a guy that can quite literally one shot you in the stomach and not feel threatened? Here's a few tips and tricks that you can use to try to take them out.
1. Non-combative techniques:
1.1 Let your team handle it-
So maybe you don't want to tangle with them, and you want your team to handle it. That's completely fine. But don't expect them to know what you are trying to do.
1.2 Lead your team to the sniper-
If you're playing with a team that is using a headset, simply tell them the location of the sniper and ask for someone to kill them.
2. Combative techniques:
2.1 Blow them up-
Maybe you're the type who likes to fight head on, good, here is one technique that I personally like to use. If the sniper is in a building or in a closed off area, try throwing two grenades in there to flush him out, and while he's running for his life, gun away. Eventually you will hit him with something, freeing your team of the snipers grasp (at least for now.)
2.2 Sneak up behind him-
So lets say the first plan failed and you got shot again. That's okay. Here is another combative technique, sneak up behind him and melee his butt into next spawn. Try to watch him for a little, see if you can find a pattern in the way he turns, once established and you have a plan, run up to where he is, staying below him the best you can. When you get to his location, climb up to his spot, or if he's below, fall down on top of him. When you're in range, kick him in the face and get out of there.
2.3 Unload everything you have-
So you got shot trying to go commando and this guy hasn't died yet, last plan, unload everything you got on your pilot and titan if you have too. Show this guy that not all snipers can get away with what he is doing, and now you are on to him.
Hope y'all got some info out of this, once again this is my first upload and I will try to get some more tips and tricks out. This is a learning experience and I will try to get better articles out next time. Thank you so much for at least bearing through this.
