The Sniper turret an automated sniper gun with a slow rate of fire comparable to bolt-action sniper rifles. One can be placed on the map at a time. It features the third highest damage rating of all turrets (behind the Rocket and Shotgun turrets), but with higher range than the aforementioned turrets (in fact, the highest range of all turrets), and a higher rate of fire than the Rocket Turret.
The Sniper turret is best suited for large, open areas (such as in maps like Scramble). However, the slow rate of fire and large size can make it very conspicuous and ineffective in cramped areas (such as the covered areas of maps such as Streets or Rooftops.
Overall, the Sniper Turret is arguably the best turret for mid-long range combat. However, the Shotgun Turret is much more effective at close range, while the Rocket turret or the Shoulder gun offer more versatility.
