- Sniping pairs best with long range skills, especially those that hit the enemy through cover. A receiver mod on the rifle takes this even further with the penetration stat.
- Make sure to bring a different type of weapon, as sniper rifles make you the most vulnerable.
- Using a high damage rifle like Black Widow with the Damage & Force tier 6 skill, will allow a headshot on Insanity difficulty to kill basic enemies outright, depending on what other passives Ryder has such as the Infiltrator headshot bonus.
