A soldier in a military unit who specializes in long-range operations, stealth, and stalking targets. Snipers are trained to make accurate shots over distances exceeding 800m and up to 1500m. Unlike squad designated marksmen, the sniper operates at longer distances and works, ordinarily, with only a spotter, and not with a squad. Snipers normally employ the use of bolt-action rifles, high-caliber sniper rifles, or scoped battle rifles to carry out their mission, though they do carry pistols and knives as a last resort.
Soldier 1: We have a runner. Joe, take him out!
Soldier 2: Negative. Joe can't shoot for shit. Walter's a better sniper. Get him to take him out.
