This article is for the snipers of the Swarm. For the Locust Snipers, see Sniper.
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 if Snipers are Drones who have mutated or are Juvies who have mutated to them specifically.
