How to tackle Snipers in Counter Strike

This is the deadly question of every gamer who plays counter strike.

It even irritates when we lose our allies one by one to a single sniper. A well positioned sniper is not an easy task to counter. That too in CTs. CTs have no reason to rush, so they shall sit comfortably with their AWP. Even i remember a counter server where CTs had 8 snipers , they almost sealed all the entry points of Ts.

Now coming to the point.

As i said, Sniper in a very good position is really dangerous, as he never moves.So finding him itself is a difficult task.

First and foremost thing is, Never run in a straight line, if you know that there is a possibility of Sniper.Always run in Zig-Zag manner. Also never hug a wall(thin wall to be precise). Sniper bullets can penetrate two walls.

There are two different Sniper action.

Sniper always camp in the following areas

Many snipers have good location in their Spawn.

de_dust2 , the double doors is common to both Ts and CTs. The best thing is to avoid the way. More than one snipers, confuse them with your Zig Zag movement.

Focusing the Doors:

Snipers also focus the Doors. For professional snipers, a small hole is sufficient to take down the enemies behind. So never peep outside a door, blindly. Use Smokes and make your movement hidden.Throwing too many smokes and irritate the sniper as his vision is completely covered. Use this chance and get close to him and he is yours now.

Caution: All snipers will definitely have Night Hawk(Deagle). So it is as powerful as your Rifle.So be careful!!.


Snipers usually come to combat, when all others die or the bomb has been planted.Dont think you can take down snipers in close combats, many experts have very good aim without Scope also. So always be cautious.

When you are in combat with a Sniper, even though you dont get a good aim, keep moving while shooting and approaching, If the sniper missed his shot, CROUCH and Hit him as much as Possible (Even lethal head shot can be made). Dont take too much time crouching, you must be as quick as possible, if he recovers, keep shooting but dont stand still.

Jumping is a biggest mistake.
Never jump when you are countering a sniper. It will make him even more easier to predict your path.When you land , your movement speed is decrease, so it is even more easy for snipers to hit you.

Even if you have 100 health, you hit the sniper with 99 damage. 1 health is enough for the sniper to kill you. So never stand still.Keep moving and change your distance every now and then.
