I never really had an issue with Snipers either.

You've got a few basic ways to get into the enemy base against a good Sniper.

Method 1, for classes that have concs or safe nadejumps: peek out, bait a missed shot, then get yourself across. Worst case scenario they line you back up and tag you for minimum damage. If your bait ends with you getting insta-gibbed, at least you only lost a few seconds.

Method 2, for slower classes that don't really have any business in the enemy base, or for avoiding damage entirely at the expense of speed: take the other fucking route. Go through the water, for example. Take the back alley. Whatever.

Method 3, for Spies: cloak, you asshole.

Method 4, for anyone except Demo and maybe Pyro: pressure the Sniper with gunfire. A couple rockets, a stream of nails, etc.

An easy nerf for the Sniper would be to just raise his refire delay. If you wanted to start somewhere, I'd recommend that.
