Wielding auto sniper rifles capable of firing 3 consecutive shots, they can kill most infantry units, even crouched ones, and deal heavy damage to bosses. However, their minimal HP, AP and Defense make them extremely vulnerable in close to mid-range combat.
They should not be confused with the "Sniper Elites" in Valkyria Chronicles and Valkyria Chronicles 4, who are just levelled-up members of the regular Sniper Class rather than a specific sub-class. Snipers simply gain the label "Elite" when they reach level 11 in these games.
