Sniper Strategy Guide

May 18, 2012

Pro's/Cons And Why?

1. Fun character to use
2. Has an incredible range!
3. Can do a lot of damage over time
4. Has a great move to farm (Sharpel)

1. does not have much health In the beginning
2Takes A Lot Of Damage!

3. Could be an easy death (DEPENDS if you get the core items and a vanguard you're more likely to survive, most hits depending on which hero!
4. Not a person to solo him self unless you're trying to kill a weak hero.
5. Mana troubles in the beginning

Sharpnel- Should be one of the first moves to level up first because in the start of the game he can use that to get some cash, It can also be used to push some enemies back. SHOULD NOT BE LEVELD ALL THE WAY TO MAX AT THE START OF GAME VERY BAD!

Take Aim- This should be the second move you you level up, very important! You should get this move at least 3 levels then level up Headshot. You should level this up first thing because it's more harder for enemies to gank you, since you're at a longer distance, and if an enemy has low health that range could help you kill him! MOST IMPORTANT! Once the Take Aim is level 3 you can shoot towers without the towers shooting you since you're range will be expanded, which is another reason why it's good.

HeadShot- It's a good ability, but not so important in the start of the match. It's best to leave that aside for later. Will do more damage but it's best to level up Take Aim first thing, from my side.

Assassinate- One of your best moves their is, it's best to actually use this move when their on low health you're more likely to get a kill, however the item Desolator Is very important and one of the best items i think you can get for sniper. He shoots fire bullets and can do a lot of damage, i got many kills with it, works great with this.

I think my own build for sniper is good for me, i wanted to share it with you guys to see what you may think or if it helped you, but it surely helped me.
