Default Why are Snipers the Go-To Class for FPS Games?

I play Team Fortress 2, Battlefield, Call of Duty and other FPS games and can't help but see so many snipers.

In many games it's one of the main reasons we lose. What is it with a class that just stands still all day? Do people have fun with this? Is this something that the Counterstrike phenomena brought?

This comic pretty much sums up how I feel:

They can kill easily...and they camp. I don't know, I'm not sure.

I'd say it's because it's the easiest way for them to get kills with minimal effort. Snipers are also considered cooler than anything else.

it's harder to find a sniper and kill them.
until you learn the map and wreck every single sniper in existence that tries to camp in the popular spots that everyone knows about

also they probably like ohko

just grab a smg and win your games easy if you're playing cod or bf

Luna finds it rather difficult for many new players to fight back against snipers in most shooters. Often people are so preoccupied with the people in front of them that they don't really watch for that one guy in the backing, aiming at their heads. It's a lot different if you are playing a game like Titanfall where it is rather difficult to snipe due to all of the Parkour. It takes a lot more effort to snipe thus less people are snipers. Luna rarely found any snipers while playing the Titanfall Beta.

It's because you can kill in one shot or 2 while using snipers without even noticed by your target
