The Sharpshooter Class is a soldier class in XCOM 2.

Class DescriptionEdit

Just like it sounds, our sharpshooters engage enemy targets with pinpoint accuracy from extreme range. They're also trained in pistol marksmanship for the occasional close encounter.

–-Soldier Training Selection, XCOM 2

Class WeaponsEdit

The Sharpshooter class utilizes high-caliber sniper rifles as primary weapons and pistols as secondaries. The Sharpshooter does not need to manually switch to the Pistol to use it, with both pistol attacks and pistol overwatch being available as commands to instantly use the weapon. Special ammo carried by Sharpshooters will apply to both their rifle and pistol attacks; weapons mods do not affect pistols, however.
