The Sniper is a support class. With his low health, the Sniper takes cover behind the front lines and picks off enemies from afar using his sniper rifle.


Country of Origin: Australia

Job: Precision Elimination

Motto: "Pink Cloud of Death"

In his former life as a tracker of dangerous game in the unforgiving Australian outback, the Sniper would spend months by himself. Prolonged isolation taught him a valuable lesson: You don't have to rely on other people if you never miss.

As a Sniper…

  • …the longer you spend zoomed in the scope, the more damage the shot will do.
  • …a fully charged sniper rifle head shot can kill most classes instantly.
  • …aim for the head to do critical damage.
  • …zoom with the sniper rifle by hitting MOUSE2.
  • …use your secondary submachine gun to deal with nearby enemies.
  • …your shot will usually miss if the Huntsman is pulled back longer than five seconds. Reset it by hitting MOUSE2.
  • …the Fishwhacker will cause bleeding damage to the enemy being hit. Use it to fight cloaked spies!
  • …movement speed while scoped in with the Hunting Revolver is higher than with the sniper rifle. Move around while aiming to be a harder target to hit.
