Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Sniper

  • Sniper gets easily ganked, always have an Observer Ward placed and pay attention to the minimap.
  • Push out the lane with Shrapnel prior to rune spawns.
  • Look to stack the nearby big jungle camp with Shrapnel whenever you can.
  • Sniper doesn`t like to rotate too much, so focus on farming and pressure the tower if opponents` mid rotates.
  • Don`t let opponents see you at the start of a fight. Let them focus on someone else.
  • If you feel you might be ganked, Shrapnel the wave and move out.
  • Sniper is really strong at defending buildings with Shrapnel and his long attack range.
  • When in trouble, often times the correct play is to press Take Aim and stand your ground.
