Sniper Rifle
  • Unlike other weapons, Sniper Rifles are less accurate as the shooter's range to target decreases
  • Sniper rifles have the best base chance to cause critical hits
  • Snipers cannot move and fire in the same turn, unless trained appropriately
  • Consider equipping snipers with the best pistols XCOM has, so they can fire even when forced to move
