In Insurgency, the Sniper is a class specialized in long range combat. It is also the only class used by both Security Forces and Insurgent forces. 

The role of the sniper is to eliminate high value targets (VIPs) and immediate threats to friendly forces, such as machine gunners and enemy snipers. Snipers should also provide friendly forces with intel regarding enemy movement.
