From publisher blurb:
Be more than a guy carrying a rifle with a big scope!
The Sniper is a full new class for The Frontier that allows you to play one of these elite marksmen. With a good vantage point and clear lines of sight, you'll be able to deliver death from far away. Pick your shots carefully to achieve the focus required to perform your most impressive shots.
As you work your way towards the pinnacle of marksmanship, you will also get the chance to wield 11 new sniper rifles, from the uncommon Blackhat to the legendary Ionstorm.
