The in-game picture of the sniper

Snipers always aim with deadly precision and aren't known for wasting bullets. Peeking around doorways and through windowpanes, these contract killers prefer to get in and get out before their victim's body has time to hit the floor.

The Sniper is a trainable offensive troop in The Godfather Five Families.


Snipers are the second Balance-type troops in the game. They are categorized under Elite troops, alongside the Butchers.They have better damage and health than the Professionals, but lower than the Butchers. They are rarely used as meat shields to attack a tough enemy.
