Snipers use their sniper rifle to fire at misbehaving prisoners within their line of sight. They will fire warning shots before shooting at prisoners directly, giving them a chance to surrender. They will not fire warning shots if a prisoner is escaping and is already outside the outer walls. When aiming their rifles, a red laser sight can be seen.
Hints and Tips
- Snipers require a guard tower to work, unless when hit or when recruited by the Warden.
- They'll cause a suppression effect to nearby prisoners, similar to armed guards.
- If there are no armouries in the prison, they will not carry any rifles. Instead, they will simply go to a sniper tower and watch over your prisoners. They can't shoot, but they will still cause suppression to nearby prisoners.
- Snipers will not carry jail keys. This means they require guards to open jail doors for them.
Snipers can't be assigned to patrol on Guard Pavilions.
