The Best Airsoft Sniper Rifle Starter Package

While scrolling through the thousands of videos of Airsoft Snipers on YouTube, such as Novritsch, Swamp Sniper, The House Gamers, Jet the Desert Fox, and plenty of other channels with similar sniping content. You find yourself thinking more and more “Damn I want to get those sick shots”. So you walk into your local store or search the interwebs for an Airsoft Sniper Rifle and you come across Airsoft GI’s Best Airsoft Sniper Rifle Starter Package. You see everything this package comes with at the awesome price of $189.99 and before you know it you’re getting that knock at the door an UPS is giving you the Best Airsoft Sniper Rifle Starter Package. Now before you take that out to your local fields to get those long Novritsch kills there’s a few things we want you to keep in mind while you’re doing that. You have to know how to move, how well your gun can perform, and that patience is a virtue.

Knowing how to move is key to doing well. Not just as a Sniper, but as a player in general. If it’s dead quite in the woods then suddenly the squad of guys you’ve been stalking hears random twigs and leaves crack you might end up with a high cap getting dumped in your general direction. While moving you want to avoid dry, dead brush as much as possible to give off as little sound as possible. Using your environmental noises to your advantage is also key. If the field is near train tracks move when a train passes by, if someone’s car alarm goes off cover as much ground as possible before they turn it off, throw a rock in a completely different direction as you to get their attention off for just a split second.

We all want to be able to say that our gun can clear any map it walks onto but the reality is that Airsoft Guns have their limitations. Knowing whether your gun can hit a target or not is one of the most important things to know as a player and especially as a sniper. If you take a shot at someone and it falls way short but they see the round land that gives them the potential to spot you if they can remotely trace it back to it’s point of origin. However, knowing what your gun is capable of will keep you from making those simple mistakes and maximize your effectiveness on the field.


Lastly the practice of patience, and this mainly goes for sniping at bigger events, is probably the most important thing you can practice as an airsoft sniper. Sitting back and knowing when to shoot and when not to shoot can mean the difference between getting killed and getting your team the information to take over the game. A lot of people who have played the sniper role at bigger events know fully that they will primarily focus on getting intel with maybe taking a handful of actual shots over the entire weekend. If you shoot too soon you might alert several patrols as to where you might be at. Waiting for all of the right circumstances will reward you with quite possibly the most satisfying kill you have ever confirmed in airsoft.


Airsoft sniping is a very glorified role that is not for everyone. If you think you can go out and rock it, take these tips into consideration. Snipers offer a huge advantage to the team that knows how to use them properly. If you find your new love please let us know!
