"These elite hunters stalk their prey with immense greatbows."

The Sniper job class is available to Viera in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. They can turn invisible and attack opposing units (or their gear) from afar. In order to become a Sniper, mastery of two Archer A-abilities is required. One great technique is pairing the "Doubleshot" ability with the Archer's "Focus" ability. The Sniper also takes a page from the Thief with "Wallet Shot," which steals Gil from distant enemies. Snipers have possibly the highest attack stat among other Viera classes and they can equip Greatbows, which means she is deadly at far range, also capable of utilizing Vanish to pass foes unnoticed, then striking twice in the next turn with Doubleshot at their backs as well as abilities like "Death Sickle" which can inflict status effects. Her speed is slightly higher than average, while they have average HP growth, but are poor in other areas. A suitable secondary A-Ability would have to be blade arts; despite costing MP, its effectiveness is based upon the [weapon] Attack stat, the Sniper's area of expertise.
