    Sniping in airsoft requires a lot if time and money. To get a decent sniper you would need to pour in at least $250 in upgrades. I don't advise getting into sniping until you are really experienced.

    Hehehe.... boom headshot!
    So in airsoft sniping:
    -Get an awesome gun (bolt action, 500+ fps w/ 0.30+ or so, and long accurate precise tightbore and accurate precise hop up.)
    -Get a ghillie suit
    -Get a KWA Gbb SMG (or a pistol if that's your taste)
    -Get a radio system with your team (or at least another teammate/partner)
    -Coordinate with your team/partner how you can be effective. (Battle strategy! like holding a flank at bay, or guarding an objective, etc)
    -Bring snacks and water
    -Go take a nap in the grass
    -Wake up and shoot people

    Step 2: Buy scope.
    Step 3: eat stuff while waiting for stuff to arrive.
    Step 4: make gillie from either jute or burlap. Give it a FR coating after dying it.

    When you want to hide, think about where a sniper would hide, and then hide in the second best place. And pick a place people wouldn't bother going, or would avoid, like water, or thorns. People won't go there, and you wouldn't expect a person to be there, because who would want to sit in a patch of thorns? Survey the area, find the second highest point, and set up camp. Have a friend also wear a ghillie suit, but give him a decent AEG, something accurate at mid-close range. Get him a spotters scope, and make sure you stay very close, and communicate as much as possible. Take your time, be patient. And pick your shots very carefully, shoot the people who pose the most threat to you, then whoever poses the biggest threat to your teammates. Research camouflage techniques, they will help immensely. Also reading a snipers basics handbook will help. And lastly, make sure you have a rifle that can perform flawlessly on the field, consistency is key with sniper rifles.
