Snipers are members of Eden's Gate who are armed with sniper rifles and prefer to guard rooftops and other high places. They are much more perceptive than other enemies and very accurate, rarely missing a shot.
There are two types of Snipers in Far Cry 5. First one is the follower, only wears white sweater and pants, the most vulnerable hostile in the game. There are men and women in the type. Second one is the security, who wears white jacket with red cap. They act more aggressively and there are only males.
