What Makes A Goood Sniper?
Is it using the sydney sleeper to drench your enemies and let your team share in the fun? Or is it taking out the uber-medic so your team doesn't have to work hard? POST YOUR IDEAS HERE!!!

If you use the sydney sleeper, you're doing it wrong.

Prioritize your targets. Other snipers first. If they kill you, you can't do your job, and it puts your teamates at risk. Then medics. The team without a medic is usually the one that loses. Pretty much everyone else is fair game after that. (Obviously, high priority targets like ones with intel or any that are currently capping a point take priority.)

For dealing with other snipers; Do not stay scoped in for more than 1 second. Especially if they see you. As soon as you shoot, whether you missed or killed them, immdediately jump, and strafe. This will make you much harder of a target to hit if there's more than 1 sniper aiming at you. Do not ease your way out of a corner sniped it. If a sniper's on the other side, you will likely die instantly. Instead, jump out, quickscope in, and shoot. As far as how to aim and all that, that's something that cannot be taught, but rather learned from experience.

Sydney sleeper is only good when you're supporting the team

You could support them more by just killing the person you're targeting rather than covering them in Jarate.

Yes. And you can support your team by getting headshots, just like the Sniper is designed to do.

But I use the Croc-o-style kit! Is that bad? I also use Stock/Jarate/Buschwacka.

Then practice more. Headshotting a scout is only difficult if you're/they're lagging.

Sydney Straw Boat is key to sniping.

Stock+ Jarate + bushwacka is the best loadout, imo. The darwins shield doesn't have enough benefits over the jarate.

Get a friend to help you, or go to random trade servers. There'll be plenty of scouts running around to headshot.
