30 Charges?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the Laser Sniper Gun clip only capable of storing 10 charges? It's the Plasma Gun that's got 30+ charges. -NKF 09:07, 13 June 2011 (EDT)

30 shots for the sniper. I often use it as an equivalent alternative to the machine gun in the early game, as ammo is still quite scarce then (one-shot kills are no where near as common as in the earlier games). -  Bomb Bloke (Talk/Contribs) 18:29, 13 June 2011 (EDT)

Underappreciated?

I had retired these fairly quickly, as dual wielded plasma pistols offered acceptable accuracy and excellent power. I had some very uncomfortable fights though - between the introduction of Devastator Cannons and my ability to use them myself - where the poor underpowered sniper was the only way to deliver any kind of damage at medium/long ranges before incoming fire killed someone. There's a gap where devastator cannons are (eventually) deadly, and lawpistols, autocannons, plasma pistols, and disruptors rarely score hits at all. The targets weren't armoured or shielded so a sniper could do the job, they were just too hard to hit and too dangerous to approach.
