Imperial snipers are similar to battle soldiers but keep even longer distance and don't stay in groups. They tend to be stationed in high-up positions like watchtowers and tops of buildings. They deal ballistic damage from afar and back away if pursued, resorting to melee attacks with their sniper rifle if forced to close-ranged combat. They are weak to firearms, shields and fire and resist lightning.


Imperial snipers are unremarkable enemies and easily disposed of. The player can simply warp-strike them when they are in range.


  • The imperial sniper yields less EXP than the official guide indicates.
