Sniper in game

The Sniper is one of the five basic upgrade choices from the Basic Tank and can be selected at Level 15. The Sniper may further upgrade into the Assassin, Overseer, Hunter, or Trapper, the most choices from any Tier 2 class.

Design

The Sniper features a circular base with a rectangular cannon on the front. Compared to its unupgraded form, it has a slightly longer cannon.

Technical

The Sniper has an increased field of vision, as well as increased Bullet Speed, Damage, and Penetration. However, it has a reduced rate of fire and a slight decrease in Movement Speed.

Strategy

Offensive

  • Use your larger sight range to your advantage. Your low fire rate hinders close-quarters-combat, so avoid it if possible.
  • A swarm of Crashers is able to drain the health of the Sniper because of its low rate of fire, so stay out of the Pentagon Nest when your level is low.
  • Farming from Squares or Triangles will be hard due to your fire rate, so focus on Pentagons or low-level tanks or max out Reload. Alternatively, increase Bullet Penetration and Bullet Speed to hit many Polygons in a single shot.
    • It would also be ideal to wait until you’re at Level 30 or 45 to start upgrading since the Tank has a somewhat quick fire rate and is able to defend itself in close-quarters combat.
  • Ideally, a skilled Sniper approaches the enemy (who does not know his presence) without being seen.
    • This tactic can be done only with the Ranger, Assassin, Stalker, and Hunter. But each tank has different skills; for example, the Stalker has the ability to be invisible, and the Ranger can take targets out from much further away.
      • A good Sniper tactic is to shoot at where your target will be. Always predict your enemies' movements.

Achievements

  • Snipin’ — Upgrade to Sniper
  • Try some other classes too — Upgrade to Sniper 100 times

History

  • With the initial release of achievements on February 21st 2017, upgrading to the Sniper for the first time awards the player the achievement “Snipin’”.
    • Upgrading to the Sniper for the 100th time awards the “Try some other classes too” achievement.

Trivia

  • The Sniper and its upgrades’ Bullets do not slow down when travelling through obstacles (enemy Bullets, Polygons), which may be helpful for farming. From another side, a too high Bullet Speed might be the reason the Bullet will fail to deal the max amount of damage to small and strong Polygons like the Pentagon.
  • The Sniper branch of the Class tree is the largest of the Tier 2 branches.
    • A Sniper can become one of 12 distinct Tier 4 Classes, as well as an additional 4 Tier 3 Classes.
