Before you do anything, or step out into the field, you need to begin by practicing. What would be an ideal thing to do, is if you go on and form a practice field. You can set up targets which you can shoot at.
As time progresses, you can slowly start increasing the distance between yourself and your targets. This will help you practice for ranged firing. At the same time, increasing the distance will also help you adjust to wind speed and direction which proves to be very helpful while shooting from distance.

Silence and patience
Another essential tool for all snipers is to have the ability to be patient. A sniper is not going to be in the thick of things during any battle and it is wise to be able to adjust to this mind set. This will allow you to not get annoyed while waiting on the battle field and will allow you to maintain focus for longer.
Being silent is also another important part of being a sniper. You will be required to find a nice spot where you need to position yourself. Now once you are in this spot you can’t go on and start communicating with everyone.
Instead you have to remain perfectly quiet, so that you are able to use the element of surprise when you start picking out your opponents from distance.
