  1. You should also keep in mind that as a beginning player, you will also need to purchase the gear and accessories that go along with using airsoft guns. The most important thing is to be proud of your gaming and your team. When you finish off your opponents, you’ll be able to gain XP and earn sniper levels where you can then customize the ultimate sniper rifle fit for your playing style.
