The White Death

This is Simo Hayha. He served
one year of mandatory military
service for the Finnish army and
was a decorated marksman.
During the Winter War (1939-
1940) with Russia, he
to help his country. He staked
out in a forest where
temperatures were -20 to
degrees celsius. He began
picking off Russian soldiers.
Once they found out all their
troops were being killed by one
man, he was nicknamed "The
White Death," for his white
camouflage he wore. The
Russians deployed a task force
to kill him, but they were all
gunned down. They then
deployed a team of counter
snipers (snipers trained to kill
other snipers) but Simo killed all
of them. Fearing the loss of
more soldiers the Russians
carpet bombed his location hut
Simo survived suffering only
slight damage to his jacket.
Eventually, a Russian' s bullet
caught Simo in the jaw, tearing
off "practically half his head."
He was carried by another
Finnish soldier to a hospital
where he was in a coma for a
week, and woke up to the news
that the war was over. His
confirmed kill count with his
rifle was 505 (the most of any
Finnish soldier) although it is
believed his final kill count was
much higher as he also used an
SWIG. To avoid being seen by any
enemy troops, he used a rifle
with just the iron sights, so no
one would see the glare off his
scope. He would also keep snow
in his mouth at all times " no
one would he able to see his
breath. Also, "The White Death"
still stands to this day as the
most badass nickname ever.

So:
Black death killed a lot of people, AND White death killed a lot of people.
But only White death is a hero.

Yet they hold most of the world records on Counter Strike, a game way more hardcore than COD.

The top ranked Runescape player is Finnish too.

2 quick side notes:
1) Killed the asshole that shot him, then got carried away
2) Greatest sniper in Finnish history? Try WORLD history

Finnish history, yes. World history? No. Although he's definitely out there in terms of skill there are many as good or better than him.

Simo Häyhä had anywhere from 200 to 700 kills with just a regular bolt-action rifle. No scope, all the while shooting russian soldiers from up to half a kilometer away. He's definitely a contender for "best sniper of all time."

My favorite part is that you responded that he wouldn't be the best in the world, but instead of naming any contenders for the spot you just lazily said "I'm sure there are plenty of snipers as good or better than him".

Really? Good argument.

Here's a pic of him post-getting shot in the face, though.
