Is Sniper Worth It?

Upgrade Priority (Ranking) S Rank Icon
Reason When paired with Snipers that have a high headshot multipliers, this will almost ensure a one-hit kill on any target (except for bosses).

Ultimate Stealth Sniping Ability

One way to get quick Stealth EXP is to use snipers before a battle is initiated. However, there are some opponents that are rather well equipped and can avoid instant kills from Snipers even from headshots.

When this perk is leveled up to its max, it will almost always ensure instant kills from any sniper that have a decent headshot multiplier. Pair this with the Nerves of Steel perk from the Assault perk tree, then, any headshot from any Sniper would almost always cause a one-hit kill.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • If I fail or cancel out of an access point, the mini-game will not load up, you'll just get the jack in/Jack out animations but the mini-game will no longer appear.
