Sniper

From Steambirds Alliance Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Piercing. Slightly weaker at long range.

The signature weapon type of the Duster and Dagger Knight planes and an alternate weapon type of the Raptor and Old Faithful planes.

These extremely long-range weapons allow the player to fire at enemies that are off the screen and deal high damage, but their slow reload times balance them out. Fires a set of three stacked enemy-piercing shots in front of the player. One shot terminates at mid-range, another at long range, and the last at very long range, so only a portion of theoretical damage output can be achieved from far away.
