How can continuously under performing be a good thing? Snipers should be an option, a tactical move to use one or not. If snipers aren’t used because they can’t do damage, then it’s broken. Only when two snipers on a team becomes the meta, then we have an other problem. Not every match or map needs sniper, as you say, they are different from medics. Medics are at the core of the game, snipers don’t have to (/shouldn’t) be, however no map really invites to play a sniper now (close quarters, fast movements). So guessing the maps wont change soon, the class should change. OR the snipers aren’t something for this game and the guns change, either way, changes are to be made.
