​Before understanding what makes a sniper challenge different than a precision shooting match, you must first understand what a sniper is. Snipers are used in a variety of missions on the battlefield, sometimes the primary mission has nothing to do with pulling a trigger.

Snipers are what military strategists refer to as force multipliers. Simply put, a force multiplier is an individual or small team that, through the use of special tactics, can do the damage of a much larger force. What's amazing about snipers is that they are capable of force multiplication without ever directly engaging the enemy.

RECONNAISSANCE
SUPPORT

The Real World Sniper Challenge is designed to honor the sniper craft and community through a series of mental and physical challenges under a variety of stressors. Make no mistake about it this event will be as advertised and will quickly identify the unprepared.

 

Sniper teams and Lone Snipers in the "LRS" division are expected to arrive physically prepared to move themselves and their equipment between stages along improved roads and over terrain. Those competing in the "Mechanized" division will be transported between stages by vehicle but will still be required to move short distances if stages have multiple portions. If competing as a team it's important each member be capable of operating independently as well as a cohesive unit.
