Best Team Fortress 2 Sniper WeaponsStorm
The Top Ten
MVP with huntsman makes any noob rage case... HE can't USE IT and thinks you hack
You wouldn't think a bow and arrow would be good against guns, but this weapon proves the contrary. - psychiclion
It has a good taunt, since it's a fast killing taunt. Also, it's funny when you pin somebody to the wall.

Throw a jar of piss at a scout, you can now instantly kill a scout from a shot in the foot, LOGIC.
People using this weapon against me makes me pissed... Get it?
Who knew a jar of your own piss could be so helpful. - DapperPickle
This is the most terrifying weapon in the game. Except for its far superior derivative, the Sydney Sleeper, or its somewhat equal equivalents for other classes, the Fan O' War and the Buff Banner. These weapons either make all attacks by your team (nearby teammates) deal more damage, or do the opposite: make all attacks dealt to a specific, unfortunate enemy, deal more damage (Like Zenyatta's "Orb Of Discord" from Overwatch).
The Sydney Sleeper is Jarate + The Sniper Rifle. It is a Sniper Rifle that looks like an airpowered dart gun, which puts darts in your breast pocket. It looks awesome. Its stats give it The Sniper Rifle stats, however it doesn't deal headshots. It stats also give it Jarate's stats however it doesn't extinguish fire and lacks infinite ammo that recharges (and it doesn't work like a grenade). This might look bad, but in reality, two of the best Sniper weapons have just been turned into one weapon with slightly worse stats of both weapons. Pretty amazing in ...more
If you can bag head shots like crap, this thing is the best. More head shots, more charge, more damage. - Storm
I use this weapon and if you are good at getting head shots then your focus will fill up and then it charges quicker for more head shots, plus the focus doesn't go down if you don't headshot.
Best weapon hands down got some of the sickest headshot cabins that would only be possible with this weapon. And requires actual skill. Unlike huntsman
The Hitman's Heatmarker has four upsides and one downside which is easily counteracted by the faster charge rate. Basically the downside makes a fully charged body shot is going to do 130 damage which means your basically not gonna kill a dds sniper or medic. Assuming u don't get a headshot. Basically the bestV 6 Comments
I mean, come on. What is the Huntsman doing up at the the top while this awesome rifle can double headshot and shoot though people. Even though it fires tracer rounds, no taunt kill and you have to scope in order to shoot, I still think this is one of the best sniper items in the game.
I'M NOT GOING TO START. First of all, it does high damage to players and you can pretty much not miss a shot. Killing everyone, people will think you are a hacker. But the weapon can't no scope, so you better have an SMG equipped, because you can't always rely on your kukri.
I really enjoy playing with this gun. That satisfying moment when you get a double head shot. I like to have the razorback equipped so I might be scoped in, a spy comes along, I here him breaking my shield so I whack him with the tribal mans shiv. Easy!
The Machina is by far my favorite sniper rifle, from the appearance though the penetration, this is one of the coolest and most fun snipers to play with. Sure it can't noscope, but I hardly ever do that anyway. And theirs something a bit satisfying when hearing the double kill fanfare.V 12 Comments
It does what a sniper needs and it does it without gimmicks, it's reliable and it kills.
Its is good compared to classic where you basically just no scope
The stock sniper is a good choice, but I honestly like the huntsman and heatmaker better.
This thing is a beastV 3 Comments
Looks awesome with the same amazing stats as stock
Its just awesome... and its really OP

More health? Perfect! Bullet resistance? Even better! Who cares about more damage taken from explosives? They are slow and easy to dodge. - Storm
Really awesome how it can block 1 headshot.
R.I.P every spy ever who was unfortunate enough to go up against whoever using this
annoying to play against. Pain in the ass when you headshot someone, they don't die, and then they full charge bodyshot you.
20% damage vulnerability. So what? Snipers are usually out away from combat, and if he is in combat, most likely he would die anyway. Lets you regenerate 1 health every second, and no flinching on aiming. A wonderful secondary weapon. - Storm
Its cool jagged and you bleed after someone hits you
Basically the southern hospitality for sniper
Yo SO what if it does more damage, you still use the normal becuase it is faster... but this is pretty op in terms of SPYCHECK, but we had the damn razor back for that (yes I am a noob) so. BYE BYEV 4 Comments
A mini gun with a lot less spin-up with normal movement speed. How good is that? - Storm
Hey I just killed spy with this, its alright. AS LONG AS I DON'T RUN AT HEAVIES WITH IT
Ok no you are a sniper you should be sniping not running in to battle and cleaners carbine is no apologie.V 1 Comment
Good for when using a good smg, but not given enough credit for, sorry piss rifle
Who doesn't like a gun that shoots out piss bullets?
Good for support. You set up mini crits for teammates across the map. Fully charge it does 400 damage.
Great for getting assists and really good for head shots. it can kill them at less charge because of the Jarate.V 8 Comments
A lot of people don't like this weapon, but if you find yourself on a server with its fair share of spies going around camping on your team's snipers, it helps a lot
Of course, when you jarate them and you hit them, it does CRITICAL HIT!V 1 Comment
There are still random critical hits, and mini-crits will turn into crits! Great with Jarate. You would most likely be dead anyway if a Pyro ambushes you, and if you still lived, you can use Jarate to extinguish the fire. So no worries about the 20% fire damage vulnerability. - Storm
Actually dudes, its meant to be with syndey sleeper and crocodile sheild blabla (Darwin danger)..
Honestly, I think the reason this isn't higher on the list is becuase it is really only good with Jarate. Of course, if you have Jarate, IT IS INSANE WITH JARATE. Otherwise, the normal Kukri is better.
This weapon is good if you are a good sniper if not then this weapon might not be the best choiceV 1 Comment
A nice reskin of the hunts man, with new metal details, plus the time you can hold and arrow while still being on point seems to be extended
Huntsman is FIRST
I mean I ain't wailing but isn't Fortified a BETTER reskin?
Fun, but it's simply not a good weapon to depend on. The no-scope thing is useless for good snipers since they aren't going to be scoped 100% of the time, and not being to headshot until fully charged just kills this weapon as a large part of sniper shots aren't going to be 100% charged, but rather just scoping and headshotting (uncharged) for a quick kill on squishy units. The 10% less damage on bodyshot just adds insult to injury.
I am not saying it is the best. But you gotta admit its fun.
People always say that this is a terrible weapon, but the no-scope function is very very useful. If you are a sniper it is a good thing to always be able to see the entire battlefield. If you know how to use it, it'll always be charged.
Good cause you get lots of acheivments with it and its really funV 6 Comments
Same as the normal Smg, but gives you crits.. Still there are better choices
It has a silencer so you can sneak up on people and fill up your damage meter to get dem minicrits
100 damage for 8 secs of Mini-Crits? That's not demanding at ALL - Daemonbomb
Not a sniper weapon,but when you have the huntsman, the arrow burns and if you shoot your target will burn in hell.
What people don't think about is that you can actually get headshots with a flamethrower. Its as easy as reflecting a huntsman arrow back into that wankers head.V 4 Comments
It may not be a sniper weapon, but still, you can get more kills with this than any sniper weapon, trust me, sniper sucks.
Nah, 1 fully charged body shot to the Scout and he's dunzo, trust me, bodyshots are easy.V 1 Comment
