Tactical Analysis

  • Lethal Force: IPDI Sharpshooters are exceptionally lethal sniper units. Unlike most snipers, the Sharpshooters' Intervention Rifle is capable of firing explosive rounds that can annihilate multiple members of a squad in a single shot. Sharpshooters also have a slight range advantage over most enemy snipers, and deal significantly more damage. Upgrading them with the SR-50EV will grant them the ability to decimate light vehicles as well.
  • Impossible isn't: By concentrating and putting their entire focus into a single shot, an IPDI Sharpshooter can make a single precise shot that ignores all effects of cover. This is extremely wearing on the Sharpshooter, and she needs time to recover before she can make another such shot.
  • Muzzle Flash: Due to the sheer size and report of the Intervention Rifle, IPDI snipers do not have any stealth capabilities and run at slower speeds compared to their brethren. This can be a major problem when enemy sends aircraft to flush them out. Their rate of fire is also much lower than other snipers.
