​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.
