Here are a couple quick guidelines to remember.

-"First shot, Second shot, Last shot". This is a classic sniper technique that will save your ass one day in the field. Take your three shots then relocate.

-"What you think is a good hide, isn't". Avoid fallen logs, and shooting from trees. The exposure off the side of top of your cover is only an odd shape to the human eyes. This is called "Tree Cancer". Cliche hides are nothing but a dead giveaway to a trained Countersniper.

-"Guerrilla Warfare". Read every article you can find about it, because it just may be a good friend.

-"Spotters". Are unnecessary in Airsoft, they are just another person to give away your position.

-"Play it smart". Make sure you don't lose sight of your enemy and get yourself surrounded, always keep to the outside of firezones for a far flank, your long range will come in handy.

In the real world, we generally run the most experience sniper as the spotter now. He's training the sniper and helping him learn the ropes. Not to say that the sniper is inexperience, just not AS experienced. The things a spotter handles and has to make decisions on are generally for the good of the team, whereas the sniper only worries about himself, his shot, and mission accomplishment.

In the real world, spotters are snipers. The title merely differentiates between responsibilities. Throughout the course of a mission you'll trade off sniper/spotter jobs to keep you as sharp as possible.
