Wehn I play scneraio with my fire team, My lens is camoflaged and i wear a ghillie that goes to my thighs. (I traded for it from a scout sniper in a recon sta platoon, its no cheap piece of crap.) I'm not a sniper, Im teh heavy rifleman/suppressive fire assaultman, and while yes, my ghillie is military grade, in the fields of florida it is highly effective even at close range. I usually go prone and move in between calls for fire.
Ghillie suits are not really mean for vertical stalk, even if they sell them. They are meant for slow movement across terrain. Not meant for quick pickup games but for scenario, IMHFO.
