Snipers have the lowest health of all Drones, but are seldom reachable on foot. They prefer to stake out in a covered, elevated position, where they can fire their Longshots from afar. They will stay behind cover until they take aim; the glint of the rifle scope betrays their position. If you have a precision weapon, such as an EMBAR or your own Longshot, exploit their low health and aim for the head.
The Sniper is a playable multiplayer character for the Swarm in Gears of War 4, and has three unlockable character skins, excluding its Default skin: Color Blast, Onyx Gold, and Spectre. Its Onyx Gold skin is only available in the Onyx Gold Swarm Pack.
Snipers only appear in the campaign.
In the multiplayer beta, Swarm Snipers donned the Hunter's armor, and vice-versa.
