I took the OP as meaning in a real-life moral sense, rather than being specifically about table top stuff.

ON the table, I find that writing good sniper rules is hard, because you don't want the game to revolve around the sniper but you also want the player to feel like they are contributing something.

I always liked the ASL method of "roving snipers" taking pot shots at isolated targets.

POLL DESCRIPTION

From one of the always interesting ACW threads: Snipers have emerged over the past 150 years as an important part of military forces. I once read that German snipers in WWII were one reason the Nazis weren't overwhelmed by the Soviets in the long retreat from Russia.

However, there has been some ambivalence towards them.

Some seem to regard them as almost war criminals or worse. The fate of captured snipers is rarely pleasant. Even their own sides often don't warm to them.

How do you see snipers?
