|This article is about the weapon type. For the combat skill, see Sniper Rifles.|
Sniper rifles are a long range weapon that allows players to hang back and pick off enemies one-by-one. They are heavy hitters, high-powered and accurate.

Notes[edit | edit source]
Weapons stats can be affected by a number of factors. Obvious factors include:
- Weapon mods (spare clips, scopes, barrels, etc.)
- Augmentations to weapons (kinetic coils, aerial lubricant, aerial stabilizers, etc.)
- Weapon Skills such as (Pistols, Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Shotguns)
Changes to a specific weapon, either through crafting with augmentations or through weapon mods, are reflected in the inventory entry for that specific item. They don’t appear on the blueprints.
Other explicit but perhaps less obvious factors include:
- Skill points invested in Combat Skills (other than the weapon skills) increase the bonuses from weapon skills
- Equipped armor
- Passive buffs from melee weapon augmentations are always active even if the melee weapon isn't in use
These effects are reflected in the blueprint stats without explicit notation.
The single-player stats shown on this page are baseline: Initiative I armor, no skill points assigned, no profile active.
Despite being classified as Rare, the single-player Pathfinder Observer only has 2 augmentation slots.
There is a chance that a sniper rifle purchased, crafted, found, or recovered by a Strike team Item Loot Box will drop a random augmentation on deconstruction. (See Augmentation Drops for odds of recovery). Researchable augmentations not already known will not be recovered. This drop will not be shown on the deconstruct screen and you will have to compare your inventory before/after to determine if an augmentation was dropped.
