– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown
- This allows a Sniper with Squadsight to be an extremely deadly guardian angel of the team, since this "subclass" rarely moves and can stick to Overwatch almost every turn.
- In XCOM: Enemy Within, a Squadsight shot without using Headshot has a 0% Critical Chance. This makes the "allows reaction shots to cause critical hits" to come into play less often than in the original game.
