Snipers in Vietnam were not effective in the jungle simply because they couldn't see through trees better than normal marines (very low [[Line of Sight|LoS]]). They were used in open areas and on assassination missions (often Navy Seal with sniper training or ranger). In modern day warfare snipers are used to engage enemy positions without targets suspecting anything and to easily reduce enemy manpower. US snipers in Vietnam used the [[M-40]] rifle. Some specialists used [[Springfield]] rifles.

Specialties:
None.
Description:
A unit trained for good range and accuracy.

A unit trained in marksmanship, who can shoot relatively farther than the average unit due to training and his trusty M-40. He is good if teamed with a high observation soldier for example a ranger, as a ranger can spot an enemy and let the sniper shoot him. A sniper on his own isn't any better than a normal marine if he has low observation.

He is the equivalent of a sniper in MnB2.
