The role of the sniper in an assault force is examined in this first of several Seal Team 6 training videos for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. In this one you'll learn that sniper's role isn't to hold ground; it's to get in, hit the target and leave. Anybody who's played any of the recent military shooters will agree that trying to hold down an area with a sniper rifle while your teammates screw around like headless chickens not attacking the objective is extremely difficult. Some folks can get good at it, but for the most part nobody is that accurate and that patient. Plus you run out of ammo.
Anyway MOH: Warfighter would seem to be breaking down different types of warfighters featured in the game if they're starting off with the sniper class like this. Oh and stick around to the end so you can check out the pre-order offer. It's a sniper.
