Ideas on basic ways to use snipers effectively? Or vice versa, ways that don't work?

Never ever get up close and personal. Keep your distance. Kill.

Don't get caught in medium range and definitely not in short range

Retreat fast, attack always from long range, use tagging, dont capture resources, dont lose this bot, its the most useful class in game on most maps.

Try to avoid target switching. Reloading takes time.

Also a good strategie against snipers is, to only flee out of snippets range (other enemys in long range). Maybe you get some extra hits from long range mg or SG, but it's not that deadly. When you retreat only out of snippers range, you can shoot more and force the opponent non snipers to retreat earlier.

Never let your sniper work alone. If he stands around far away from the team, there will be a shotgun to rush your sniper away. Vice versa it's worth to check if you could find an easy target for your shotgun. Snipers can't win the direct fight without a team.

Only some thoughts
