This article is for the snipers of the Swarm. For the Locust Snipers, see Sniper.

Snipers were Swarm Drones punished with removal of one of their eyes and assigning to rear positions on the battlefield. Armed with Longshot Sniper Rifles, snipers could be easily identified by their asymmetrical heads.

StrategyEdit

Snipers have the lowest health of all Drones, but are seldom reachable on foot. They prefer to stake out in a covered, elevated position, where they can fire their Longshots from afar. They will stay behind cover until they take aim; the glint of the rifle scope betrays their position. If you have a precision weapon, such as an EMBAR or your own Longshot, exploit their low health and aim for the head.
