Sniper Rifles are a long ranged weapon that fire a single, high velocity and high damage projectile. They are used by the Infiltrator to take out enemy units from distances other weapons can't match, they come in two forms. Bolt Action and Semi-Automatic, bolt actions are one shot kills to the head and semi-automatics are two headshots. The odd ducks are the Terran Republic's TRAP-M1, with a burst fire mode that makes it more suited to medium range and the Vanu Sovereignty's Phaseshift VX-S that has an infinite amount of ammo but uses an "overheating mechanic" allowing for almost no need to carry the ammunition belt can fire in a charge fire mode allowing for both long range and medium range combat. Oddly enough, some variants have iron sights.

It is very important to note that Vanu Sovereignty bolt-action sniper rifles have full bullet drop (unlike VS automatic and semi-automatic weapons).  The VA39 Spectre and Phantom VA23 have no bullet drop, but have reduced velocity compared to their TR and NC counterparts.  The Phaseshift VX-S also has no bullet drop as one of its main features, but has a relatively low muzzle velocity.
