Hailing from the Australian Outback, the Sniper is a tough and ready crack shot. The Sniper's main role on the battefield is to pick off important enemy targets from afar using his Sniper Rifle and its ability to headshot. He is effective at long range, but weaker at close range, where he is forced to use his Submachine Gun or his Kukri. As a result, the Sniper tends to perch on higher grounds or in hard-to-see places, where he can easily pin down enemies at chokepoints.
Although he is typically known for instanteously killing enemies at a distance, the Sniper can use the Huntsman to get closer to the enemy. On the other hand, the Sydney Sleeper, or the mysterious Jarate, allow him to take on a support role by causing enemies to take increased damage.
In his former life as a tracker of dangerous game in the unforgiving Australian outback, the Sniper would spend months by himself. Prolonged isolation taught him a valuable lesson: You don't have to rely on other people if you never miss.

Battle vs. Soap MacTavish (by Urbancommando77)Edit
No battle will be written.
Winner- Soap MacTavish
Soap was victorious in this battle because he had better weapons, training and more versatility. The Sniper was a powerful fighter, but he was mostly skilled in long range, and when the fight was closer he couldn't keep up- not to mention that he was an enigma, with so little known about his past and training which kept him from being able to keep up.
