how on earth did people reach the conclusion that Sniper is like, 26 or 27? I always see people talk about how hes so young. And while hes one of the youngest mercs on the team, hes not that young.
That would make him the same age as scout, or make scout, 27 in 1972, older than sniper.
New Zealand sank 40 years ago, 1972 - 40 years is 1932.
10 Years later, snipers an baby, so he was born around 1941/1942
That would place him around 29-30
I know I’m not the greatest at math, but him being 26-27 just doesn’t add up.
He does still look a bit aged for someone hitting 30, but his bio literally says “ Half rugged outdoorsman, half alien observer, this taciturn strip of beef jerky has spent the better part of his life alone in the bush, slow baking under the Australian sun.” Sun damage can be very aging, and is probably a big factor in how he looks a bit older.
Though I’d say his appearance in the comics, especially the later comics, he looks pretty close to his age compared to his in game model.
But look me in the eyes and honestly tell me you believe this is a man who believes in sunscreen
