Does a sniper participate in close quarters activities like door kicking, breach and clear?

Yes? They're still infantrymen. They're not going to spend all their lives lying still in a ghillie suit.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fuc

I'll answer your question OP.

Snipers in the conventional sense (non-SOF units) are soldiers who make up half of a sniper and reconnaissance platoon. They do not belong to "line" companies and instead are tasked out to fulfill the battalions needs. The life and job description of snipers changes as much as it does for regular infantrymen based on what the battlespace and enemy movements dictate. As one anon said previously, snipers are infantrymen and there is no MOS in either the USMC or US Army for them. They are infantrymen first and foremost and can fulfill that role just like anyone else.

That being said, for the most part they will work as overwatch for line company operations, assist the recon section in observation, or set up SKTs (small kill teams) in areas with known enemy activity. Almost all snipers will not hold that title for long enough to avoid line infantry assignment. Like being a SAW gunner, snipers are just soldiers who were selected or passed some kind of test to get into their section.

snipers spend most of their time as forward observers directing fire from artillery or providing intelligence.

they very rarely take a shot, marksmen shoot a fuck of a lot more than most snipers.

No. Snipers in regular infantry units are not trained as FOs and the only fires which can be directed are mortars. Anything else is a 13F, JTAC, etc.

The Marines do have an MOS identifier for Scout Sniper. What I was trying to explain is that the job is not separate from infantry jobs. The 03 stem of MOSs in the Marine corps covers all infantry jobs and the second portion of it works more like an identifier. In the Army the number/lettter identifier that comes after the MOS (for example 11B1P) designates special assignments. More than anything I was trying to dispel the myth that snipers are an entirely different job that you can enlist into.

>>
>>28733099
I don't know. It sounds like an entirely different MOS to me (requiring re-class or an enlistment contract), but I'm not a Marine and I know Marine Scout Snipers are infantry initially, just like the Army.
>>
United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper (MOS 0317, formerly 8541) is a secondary MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) designator of U.S. Marine Corps infantrymen and reconnaissance Marines that have graduated from a U.S. Marine Corps Scout Sniper School. Scout Snipers must earn the rank of Lance Corporal, be selected by their battalion to join the scout-sniper platoon, and complete an approved scout-sniper course in order to receive this designation.
