The Sniper on professional standards

A rugged and ready crack shot from the Australian outback, the Sniper prefers to pick his targets off from a distance, though he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty if the situation requires. Preferring to hide in elevated or hard-to-see spots, the Sniper can pick off slow moving classes like the Heavy with ease. The Sniper is also ideal for eliminating enemy Medics and Engineers, giving his team a chance to advance.
While the Sniper tends to isolate himself from the frontlines, the Huntsman sees him move up the field, laying down suppressing volleys of arrows while his ancient and mysterious Jarate and Sydney Sleeper powers can increase damage dealt against his foes by himself and teammates alike. Although Jarate is a great weapon, it can also be used to put out fires.

Description:
In his former life as a tracker of dangerous game in the unforgiving Australian outback, the Sniper would spend months by himself. Prolonged isolation taught him a valuable lesson: You don't have to rely on other people if you never miss.

Main articles: Sniper tips and Sniper strategy
  • Zoom with the Sniper rifle by hitting your Attack 2 button.
  • The longer you spend zoomed in the scope, the more damage the shot will do. (Stops at 100% charge)
  • Aim for the head to do critical damage.
  • Use your secondary Submachine Gun to deal with nearby enemies or to check for Spies.
  • Your Kukri can deal massive damage if an enemy gets in too close.
  • Look out for enemy Snipers, they are one of your biggest enemies.
  • Snipers are great at taking Sentries and their Engineers out from far outside their range.
  • If your team is getting overrun by Heavies consider switching to a Sniper. You can easily take out a Heavy with one fully charged headshot.
  • Attempt to toss your Jarate into a crowd of enemies as it will help your entire team.
  • Use Jarate to find cloaked Spies.
  • When using the Sydney Sleeper, charge up the shot to at least 25% so it will cover them in Jarate (longer Jarate effect with more time scoped in).

Weapons

Note: Weapon damage is approximate and measured at point blank range. See individual weapon pages for details.

Trivia

07 comic large.jpg
07 comic large.jpg

  • The Sniper is voiced by John Patrick Lowrie.
  • In his fight scene with the Spy in Meet the Spy, the Spy inflicts a gash on the Sniper's cheek. This gash could be seen on the cheek of the RED Sniper in the Steam news picture for the Sniper vs Spy Update and the Jarate Update image [1], although it was not seen in the same picture as used in the Huntsman update [2]. The gash was later added to the Sniper in-game model itself.
  • The Sniper, along with the Demoman and the Soldier, smokes outside of battle. (In Meet the Sniper, the title card shows cigarette butts and there is an ashtray next to the Civilian bobble-head doll.)
  • The Sniper's old Bio as it appears on his trading card reads: "Half rugged outdoorsman, half alien observer, this taciturn strip of beef jerky has spent the better part of his life alone in the bush, slow baking under the Australian sun."
  • The Sniper is the tallest class in the game.
  • The Sniper learned Jarate from a complete course endorsed by Saxton Hale. The course involved increasing the size of Sniper's kidneys to three times that of a regular man's.
  • On the old official TF2 blog page's design, the Sniper's hat is on mirrored, as well as the Heavy's ammo belt and the Pyro's gas mask.
  • The Sniper lives in a camper van, a fact his opponents are all too keen to mock.
  • Although the Spy and Scout mock the Sniper for living in a "van", the Sniper actually drives a 1960's Land Rover Pickup, an English car favored in areas like Australia and Africa because of its toughness. In addition, the Sniper's actual RV is a "slide-in" camper, also very popular in Australia and among Hunters and Outdoorsmen for its ruggedness and ability to handle tough terrain. Because this van may be popular and strong, the Scout and Spy may just be jealous.
  • The Sniper's parents live on Adelaide Street, Australia (Red House on the left).
  • In Meet the Spy, the BLU Sniper holds his rifle left-handed.
  • The Sniper and the Heavy appear to enjoy the same brand of fingerless glove, although the Sniper's fit noticeably looser.
  • The Sniper's voice actor, John Patrick Lowrie, is married to Ellen McLain, voice actress for the Administrator.
  • The Sniper keeps a bobblehead of the Team Fortress Classic Civilian on the dashboard of his camper van.
  • The Sniper was the first class to receive two unlockables for the same weapon slot, as both the Razorback and Jarate are secondary weapons.
  • The Sniper and Spy are the only classes that don't say "Boo" when they jeer. They are also the only two classes to wear watches, although presumably only the Sniper's can actually keep track of time.
  • Despite being referred to as "polite" (especially by himself), the Sniper harshly insults all his dominated opponents.
  • The Sniper is the only class without any team-colored hats. However, the Bloke's Bucket Hat has team-colored lures.
  • The Sniper and the Scout are the only classes that break the fourth wall by making references to the game's real-world nature.
  • The Sniper rarely swears (at least for American standards), even when dominating opponents. This is probably due to his insistence on civility.
  • The Sniper, despite his Australian background, is much unlike other known Australians in the Team Fortress world. These differences include his lean body structure and lack of a mustache. As he is from the Outback and a solitary figure, however, he may have been less influenced by Australium and the Australian culture.
  • The Sniper uses a large amount of leather products, as his glove, vest, boots, pouch, and possibly his belt and hat are all made of leather.
  • If the Sniper does the Kukri/Shiv taunt with the Parasite Hat on, he will take off the Parasite Hat. (This is the best way to see the Parasite Hat's jiggle bones)
  • The Sniper is the only class who has a weapon with a usable scope on it.
  • The Sniper's model changes when using a different weapon (he carries arrows in a quiver on his back when he equips the Huntsman, and the bullets in his right pocket are replaced with tranquilizers when he equips the Sydney Sleeper).
  • The Sniper, the Spy and the Pyro are the only classes able to get a "headshot". This may be intended irony as they are the worst of enemies.
  • The Sniper's Jar-ate has a lot of similarities to the Bile Bomb in Left 4 Dead 2. Both boast the same shattering sound, both have some sort of bodily secretion inside, and they both coat the enemy in some sort of substance.
  • On maps such as Sawmill, the Sniper's scope would be spattered with rain drops. However this is not the case.
  • All of the Sniper's weapons are extremely accurate - the sniper rifle is pinpoint and the SMG is very accurate on the first shot.
  • The Soldier, Demo-man, Sniper, & Scout are in a 4-way tie for the most secondary weapons. Coincidentally, there are 4 of them & they each have 4 secondaries.
  • The Sniper is the only class not referred to in Poker Night at The Inventory by the Heavy
  • The Huntsman has the fastest taunt-kill in the game.
  • Along with the Engineer, the Sniper is one of the only classes to have his "Meet the Team" video not based on any real (or official) map. The Scout's video takes place in both cp_well and cp_granary, the Soldier's takes place in cp_granary, the Demo-man's takes place in cp_gravelpit, the Heavy's (and Sandvich) takes place in cp_dustbowl, and the Spy's takes place in ctf_2fort. It is unknown which map the Engineer and Sniper's videos take place.
  • In third person and in Meet the Sniper, the Sniper only wears a fingerless glove on his left hand. However, in first person, he wears gloves on both hands, and he has no watch.
  • The Sniper's last name is "Mundy". His name can be seen on the first panel of the Meet the Director comic on The Replay Update http://www.teamfortress.com/meetthedirector/?p=1.
  • It is possible that his first name is Lawrence, from the Uber Update's "Lawrence of Australia" section. The title is also a play on the movie title "Lawrence of Arabia", and therefore may not actually have any significance.
  • One of the Sniper's hats, the Larrkin Robin, has a glitch involved with his Kukri which makes the Larrkin Robin not touch his hands and stay on the top of his head and moves as if it were like the default hat with the Kukri taunt.
  • John Patrick Lowrie also voices in Half-Life Episode 1 and Two (Voiced a Citizen)
