Depends on what spec and who initiates combat first.

Think this is true with any high burst class. It gets to be a DPS race and someone has a head start.

There was a time when I thought sniper was getting a bit over the top, and I was maining a sniper; but then I play on my other toons and realize that everything has pretty much at least one build that is very good.

That said; stupid or ignorance is hard countered by everything.

Good ones are good, and I pick apart the bad ones....

OP, you do know your AC has the tools to be a direct counter to them right?

They can be knocked out of entrench, it only works against CC's. My friend who plays a sniper constantly complains about how all entrench does is work against cc's and he's constantly knocked out of cover and then then cc'd lol.

I think your friend is wrong. When I try to knock them out of an entrench it does nothing.
A fool no matter how powerful is still a fool, and must be dealt with accordingly

Seriously, Snipers need to be either interruptable, or all of their cooldown abilities need to be cut by 2-4 seconds. At the moment, a single sniper has so many cooldowns, it can take on two people alone without a healer. I simply cannot justify a single reason why Snipers and Gunslingers cannot be interrupted while in cover. Either that, or all people to jump to them. Let them keep their immunity to knockbacks, but, for balance's sake, remove that completely uninterruptable buff they get.
Seismic grenade, everyone who is decent has one. Thats pretty much it. Which makes cover kind of pointless really. It'd be like giving me a grenade to kick sages out of force barrier or make unstoppable stop working on tanks. I deal with it though.
