Sniper is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, J.E. Sawyer's Fallout Role-Playing Game and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel.

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics

You have mastered the firearm as a source of pain. With this Perk, any successful hit in combat with a ranged weapon will be upgraded to a critical hit if you also make a Luck roll. It adds another luck roll of (10*Luck). 10 LK means every hit is automatically a critical hit.

This skill is broken in Fallout Tactics and does not work at all.

Fallout 3

With the Sniper perk, your chance to hit an opponent’s head in V.A.T.S. is increased by 25%. As with most perks that increase your chance to hit in V.A.T.S., this bonus is multiplicative, not additive.

"Just like shooting womp rats back home, eh, kid?"
―Anonymous Rebel soldier
Aurra Sing was a skilled sniper

A sniper, or sharpshooter, was an individual trained to shoot an opponent from a distance, often hundreds of meters away, and most of the time from a concealed and/or high location, patience, control and cunning were some of the attributes that were needed for this, but stealth was considered the greatest asset; the ability to strike a target without warning and with uncanny accuracy caused the Rebel SpecForce, who hired Myn Donos, one of the most famous snipers in the New Republic, to call their snipers "TK"s, short for "telekinesis," because of their ability to invisibly "touch" their target from great distances.

Snipers could be soldiers, removing high-ranking opposing personnel and targets of opportunity in times of war, assassins, killing unwitting marks from a distance, or even part of a security force, who trained snipers to protect important political figures. In the military, sharpshooters, sometimes operating with a spotter, were required to infiltrate deep into enemy territory to eliminate high-profile targets, sow fear and generate confusion within the ranks of the opposite forces.

The different classes of snipers throughout the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War included the: clone sharpshooter, assassin droid, rebel marksman and Imperial scout trooper. Some of these snipers were equipped with recon droids for scouting and calling down orbital bombardment.

History

Clone Wars

Senate Hostage Crisis

During the Senate hostage crisis on Coruscant, when the members of Cad Bane's posse arrived at the Republic Executive Building, Cad Bane was confronted by a squad of Senate Commandos. Aurra Sing demonstrated her skills as a sniper by single-handedly eliminating almost the entire commando squad from an adjacent high-rise building.

Battle droid assassin

The Battle droid assassin was a variation of the B1 battle droid used by the Trade Federation and the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. Programming for incredible accuracy, proved lethal to the Galactic Republic's clone troopers. The droids were equipped with a BAW E-5s sniper rifle as well as a standard blaster pistol, thermal detonators, and an autoturret.[1]

During the first half of the Clone Wars, battle droid assassins wore either no markings, like the standard infantry droids, or red markings, like the security droids. Assassin droid were used more frequently during the second half of the war, during which they were painted with camouflage patterns.These sniper units were used mostly for eliminating special targets such as enemy commanders or other highly dangerous foes. Droid assassins were deployed at the Battle of Geonosis in defense of the most important units waiting to be loaded onto transports, the Battle of Muunilinst against Advanced Recon Commandos, and at the defense of the Separatist stronghold on Yavin 4.

Sniper Droid

The CIS also used a variation of droideka, known as sniper droid during the Clone Wars. These droids were equipped with a cannon mounted on their heads. One such droid was used during the Battle of Kiros. [2]

Neimoidian Sniper

This variant trooper of the Neimoidian Gunnery Battalion focused upon using Sniper rifles to target enemies from afar. These CIS troopers wore the same armor as that of the Neimoidian Warriors, but the uniform was colored a bottle-green. The units were assigned near Neimoidian leaders for protection, such as Nute Gunray on his fatal occupation on Mustafar. The Neimoidian Snipers were all killed by Darth Vader on Mustafar. [3]

Clone snipers

During the Clone Wars, RC-1207, a member of Delta Squad, was a notable sharpshooter who used the sniper attachment of the DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon System for missions.

Clone snipers, also known as Clone sharpshooters, were a specialized variant of Clone troopers that served in the Grand Army of the Republic. They carried specialized DC-15x sniper rifles, DC-15A blaster rifles, autoturrets, thermal detonators, and R-1 recon droids while in the field. Clone sharpshooters wore camouflage suits at the Battle of Kashyyyk.

Their main mission on the battle field was to eliminate the Separatist B2 super battle droids from a distance, but they could also use their recon droids to carry out short-range reconnaissance. Clone snipers were chosen from only the most accurate and alert Clone troops, and may have received specialized training from clone assassins. The Clone sharpshooters later reformed into the scout troopers.

Galactic Civil War

Rebel Marksmen

Rebel marksmen were chosen from only the most accurate of soldiers that joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and were used in long-range engagements, typically to knock out enemy commanders and create confusion among the troops. Many marksman were used in the Battle of Hoth to slow the enemy advance. It was said that a good rebel sniper could make an advancing group of storm troopers into two fleeing ones.

The primary weapon used was a sniper rifle. Rebel marksmen were also equipped with blaster pistols for close-quarters fighting, a thermal detonator and either an auto turret or recon droid. Auto turrets were used to create a fortified position. [1]

From City of Heroes Wiki

This article is about enemies. For the badge, see Sniper Badge.

Overview

Snipers are dangerous enemies, as they lie in wait for a Hero or Villain target to present themselves and attack mercilessly. As a subset of "normal" enemies, they have their own "Sniper" designation and unique behavior. Snipers are equivalent to Lieutenants in most ways, including conning as one step higher than their actual level, though they are as accurate as Bosses, and their Perception range is roughly triple that of normal enemies. They are equipped with very long range attacks which are not interruptible like player sniping attacks are. Snipers cannot move on their own -- a fact that can be exploited to draw the rest of their spawn away.

Snipers are usually found alone, outdoors, lying in wait for a target to present themselves. They have very long range and see through stealth easily. As they have long range attacks, will detect and aggro on players from great distances, and are usually in high or hidden locations, they will often only be noticed when they attack players, causing damage from an "unknown" source.

Unlike other villain groups, Nemesis often makes use of Snipers inside missions. It is not uncommon for players to come under fire of several snipers, each hidden inside a different spawn. Thankfully, snipers do not aggro their spawnmates when they open fire.

Note

Some enemies use long range attacks and include the term "sniper" in their names, but are not Sniper-rank enemies and don't share their distinct behaviors. Examples include Family and Mook Hitmen (Lieutenant).
