The Swarm

Snipers are a variant of Swarm Drones who specialise at long range marksmanship. They are equipped with a Longshot, which allows them to pick off enemies at a safe distance behind cover. Physically, Snipers look similar to Drones except for some key differences, such as their head mutation and the fact that they wear less armor. It is unknown how they mutated from Juvies, or Imago to Snipers.
