    What do you want to know? There are entire books written about them, so be more specific.

    I want to know their primary and secondary missions, who sees more action between scout snipers and force recon, and what the training is like.

    basically we just give em heavier weapons.... a few more lbs of camo paint.... and tell them to move slower than normal marines and enjoy 1 shot instead of 500 rounds going down range.


    other wise not to much difference between crazy marines and crazy scout sniper marines

    bigbadGlock,


    In case ya havn't noticed.

    Scout Snipers are Marines first.
    Damn good Marines that have taken on additional risk and training to further the cause of thier brothers.
    They are not Special. At least not in the conventional Marine way of thinking.

    They have individual attributes that have been brought to the surface, and have been capitolized upon through training.

    That training results in the deadliest weapon known.

    Yet they are a Marine first and always.

    Doggys don't get it, Squids ain't gotta clue, and Civvies are too stupid to even ask.

    They do what they do as a Marine.
    Just as the rest of the Corps does.

    If you're looking for a goal, start with 9999.
    From there, ya might understand.

    E4E
