Strategies

  • Spreadshooter Snipers are best used in circumstances where enemies comes in crowds. Thanks to their above-average ATK and damage increasing trait, Spreadshooters can still deal a significant amount of damage against enemies with above-average DEF. They're especially effective against a group of enemies that comes in regular interval.

Tips

  • Spreadshooter Snipers' very short attack range makes them highly susceptible to ranged harm's reach in spite of their good HP and DEF for a ranged Operator, especially from enemies who can target more than one target and deal Arts damage.
    • Because of this, Defenders are recommended to both bait the damage and group enemies together.
  • Spreadshooter Snipers' high DP cost means that Vanguards are essential to be able to deploy them earlier.

Trivia

  • Before Mansfield Break which introduces Pinecone, Spreadshooter Sniper is the only class branch that are exclusively made up of male Operators.
  • Along with Flinger Sniper, Spreadshooter Sniper is the only class branch with an equal amount of male and female Operators.
