"This military marksman is master of long ranged warfare and striking from cover. Delivering devastating surprise attacks on hostiles, Snipers are the scourge of the enemy.
Snipers enter tier four from the Ranger line. Training focuses on engaging enemies at long range. It’s difficult for Snipers to deliver as much damage as Spies, but Snipers avoid direct enemy engagement and thus enjoy greater survivability. Beyond this, Snipers master squad-friendly abilities as part of their training, raising allies’ chances to score critical hits and reducing enemy damage output and survivability."
