I use a sniper on a daily basis but always have more deaths than kills, if anyone has advice please let me know.This is my class:

Primary Weapon Barrett .50 cal FMJ Thermal Scope

Secondary Weapon M9 FMJ Silencer

Equipment Claymore

Secondary Equipment Smoke Grenade

Perks Bling Pro Stopping Power Pro Steady Aim Pro

Death Streak Final Stand -- 22:56, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

First off, the M9 with silencer is bugged, and you'll still show up on the radar if you use it. I'm baffled as to why you would want FMJ with a pistol, as you'll rarely be shooting through walls with it (the attachment does not increase damage either). With that said, although the pistol is one of the better choices for an emergency weapon swap, the M9 is a poor choice for a pistol. The .44 Magnum would be your best bet.
I don't find smoke grenades to be particularly useful on sniper classes, but that's up to you.
Bling is not a smart perk to have if you're sniping. Go with Sleight of Hand Pro and choose between your two current attachments.
The only real tip I can give you that's non-class related is that you shouldn't be moving around too much for sniping. Don't stand like a statue in one place, but stay in relatively the same area until enemies start coming at you from behind. Semtex HUD icon MW2 Bovell Talk | Contrib. 18:09, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

I would personally take the thermal scope over FMJ, but it sounds pretty good to me. Cpl. Dunn(Talk) 21:03, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry forgot to mention I'm trying to get extended mags I'll put it on after thanks. :) --L3AD LU7K 21:18, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

I'd switch out FInal Stand for Steady Aim or Ninja, but otherwise, great! Commander W567123danielWanna Talk?|My Duty|Wassup? 23:36, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

You Guys know the FMJ + Stopping Power = 1 Shot 1 Kill. I have magnum beacuse of final/last stand (if im not running around...) Claymore for camping/sniping position.

FMJ has nothing to do with one shot, one kill, unless it's through a wall. Asides, it's never a OHK in the limbs. TNT Lordofthelargepants The Zipper and The Pockets 23:38, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know many snipers who do have more kills than deaths....but one tip i have for you, is don't even use thermal. it's easier for me to snipe when i don't use thermal. Faction USSR MWSgt. SpetSnAZ CM 00:18, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
