No. That thing sucks. I'd rather use it to chop firewood so I could break it.
kl0wn, what VS means is that a lot of new players go through a sniper stage. They want to snipe, because they see it as elite, and hardcore, and that they'll make or break the game. In most cases, newbs that pursue the sniper path veer off it in one of three ways:
1. They realize it's too expensive. You're looking at $400+ for the minimum.
2. They buy a cheap sniper rifle and it all goes to hell.
3. They give up and buy a standard AEG.
Now, we're not saying that this is ALWAYS the case. However, sniping sounds more glorious than it really is. In reality, you may go a whole game without seeing anyone, let alone getting a good shot off. However, snipers aren't really killing machines. They're more of a way to stall the enemy, or to cut them off or trap them. For example, if a sniper is in "sector A" one shot of his can pin an entire squad. They know there's a sniper in the woods, but with his camo and quiet gun, they're not going to know where you are. Because of this, the opfor will have a hell of a time crossing through "sector A" provided that they even have the man parts to try.
I STRONGLY suggest you buy an AEG to start. This way you could carry it as a side arm if you don't want to travel light.
If you want more of a marksmanship rifle, anything Veritech suggested will work. But I'd also like to suggest the AUG. The AUG is extremely compact and easy to hold. And damn comfy. And quick to reload. But because it's a bull pup, it's very easy to handle, even though it has a LONG barrel.
You could also try an M4 or MP5. If you eventually do go the sniper way, you could remove the stocks on either of the guns and have a bulky but powerful sidearm.
Also, Hot Spot is an AWESOME site. I buy from there, even though I have to pay taxes (they're in my state). They're worth it though.
