The Sniper rifle is a high-powered weapon that has the potential to inflict massive damage at any range. Each upgrade increases the Sniper's damage and extends the magazine by one round to a maximum of four. The Sniper's base damage is relatively weak, but hitting a weak spot results in triple the damage.
In Sanctum 2, the Sniper returns as SiMo's default weapon with a four round clip. Primary fire remains unchanged; however, secondary fire includes a high-powered shot that disperses in a cone-effect and consumes two rounds.
|Weak spot damage||252||342||489||792||1476||3053|
|Rounds per magazine||1||2||3||4||4||4|
|Damage per second*||33.6||69.0||132.2||257.6||480.0||1025.4|
|Weak spot DPS*||100.8||207.3||396.5||772.7||1440.0||3076.1|
Usage and tactics Edit
The Sniper is generally the most useful weapon at the start of any wave. It is ideal for damaging enemies before they reach the maze, and great at dealing with any airborne enemy. Because of the Sniper's accuracy, it is excellent when combined with a series of Holo towers.
However, the Sniper requires good aim, and is generally less effective against enemies that are closely packed together, have a weak spot that is difficult to target, or move fast. Against these enemies, especially those closely packed together, the Assault Gun (Sanctum)/Assault Rifle (Sanctum 2) may be more effective. Also that weapon is most effective against hitting Tanks' and Bobble Heads' weakspots.
