It is my belief that "weapons hipster syndrome" results from a deep insecurity on the part of the hipster. They refuse to level the playing field, as that would truly test their skill, and if they were unable to succeed on said level playing field, they would have no excuse and nothing to fall back on, as they could no longer blame their gun. It may also result in a desire to be different, which can be caused by insecurity as well.
Occasionally, a weapons hipster will go so far as to suggest that a serious competitive player stop using powerful guns, even when facing other serious competitive players that are using powerful guns.
