I think you should definitely stick with one of the cross-shaped ones, some people get picky about icons straying too far from the regular square shape.

1, 7 and 9 get my vote... they seem to be the cleanest, they keep the sniper theme and the colours work well together.

Thanks for the feedback.

So is everyone thinking a new icon is needed?

I like #6.

Yes, I think you do need a new logo because the with the current one, the "shine" really obscures the picture.

Game on my 3GS has a different icon than the one shown as 'current'. Personally I prefer the current ones listed to and alternatives shown.

On a side note, the game used to pan silky smooth and hasn't for the last few updates. I'm on a 3GS running iOS4.

Keep the old one. It fits the name. The rest are too generic. And what's with the black crosses. Is he a German marine sharpshooter?
Definitely keep the old icon.
