Step 1: Which Gun?
Like I said in my guide to airsoft you really have to pick this yourself. Although the gun doesn't make or break the sniper ( a quote from airsoft sniper.com, check it out! ) it is still nice to have a decent gun. A sniper rifle should be over 400 FPS and should be accurate at about 200-250 feet. It could also come in handy to have a scope ( for accurate aiming ) and a bipod ( to steady your aim). Check out airsplat.com for guns and accessories.
Step 2: Camo
Like I said in my first instructable, ghillie is the best. If you don't have access to ghillie ( or access to the money for ghillie ) ordinary camo is better than nothing. At airsplat.com ghillie is $89.95.
Step 3: Moving Silently
This will be very important if you want to be a good sniper. If moving slowly is not an option, try stepping on your heel and rolling your foot.If you can move slowly, stepping flat on your foot is usually more quiet. When crawling move very slowly, you should move about an inch every 30 seconds. Try not to walk on dry leaves, if you can't stay where the least amount of leaves are.
Step 4: Tips
When running from someone try to run around a corner or something to break the line of sight between you and your enemy and then quickly duck down in cover. This usually works pretty good for me. While aiming hold your breath, this will steady your aim. If the enemy is near, but does not see you, cover the bright, orange tip of your gun wich can easily be seen in the dark-green forest.
