I'm not going defend the current state of snipers (defensive safeguards obviously needs to be nerfed, suppressive fire does way too much damage, and engineering has a laundry list of issues) but as some others have pointed out snipers were glass cannons for a large part of the history of this game. Even in 4.0 when they got their CD reset they were not especially difficult to kill.

Reaaaaaaly?
You know this is the PVP board, right? How much the sniper specs parse for has/had virtually nothing to do with how strong they are in PVP.

Translated translation: use a skill calculator or read a sniper guide to learn what each of their abilities does, understand how you can counter these abilities, stop trying to hit a sniper through Diversion, especially if you are a Marauder reroll, and you're good.

You'd be surprised how fast you can kill a sniper with a Madness sorc and a little bit of LOS, or even a Pyro PT.

Pyro PT stands zero chance against a sniper, unless the sniper is completely clueless. I will concede, however, that madness sorc can take down snipers fairly well.

engi sniper is the easiest spec to face for a PT..because you have close and personal / hydraulic / damage reduction wjile stun, which reduce drastically the engi tricks.

if he doesn't have OP dome available, you have your chance.

Madness sorc making liberal use of LoS can take down a sniper through attrition, but that's just not possible for a PT because of the melee range requirement and lack of self healing/defensives.
