Praetorian Sniper Teams are elite sharpshooter units, drawn from the already select ranks of the Praetorian special forces. In addition to honing their formidable marksmanship skills, sniper training enhances surveillance and fieldcraft skills, allowing operatives to double as forward observers.
Praetorian Snipers can also employ their prolific abilities and high powered rifles in a limited anti-air role. While they cannot engage fast moving aircraft, they can pick out weak spots in loitering fliers, such as fuel lines and engine intakes.
Snipers operate alongside Digital Ghillies, artificial constructs which function both as spotters and urban optical camouflage generators. They function by projecting an optical distortion field over windows and vantage posts, thereby disrupting enemy fire.
This wide range of abilities makes Praetorian Snipers excellent multi-role troops, able to eliminate multiple threats with lethal precision.
