Sydney Sleeper The Sydney Sleeper is a team-oriented weapon that applies the Jarate debuff when you land a scoped shot, but deals mini-crits on headshots instead of critical hits. While you will lack some firepower, a weakened enemy covered in Jarate is easy prey for your teammates or an unscoped follow-up shot. With only mini-crits on headshot, you are vulnerable to enemy Snipers that use the standard Sniper Rifle and your fully charged shot can only instantly kill the weaker classes.
Overall, you sacrifice powerful headshots to improve your weaker, imprecise bodyshots.

Scoped shots also can extinguish burning teammates, which might aid in saving a life. Bazaar Bargain The Bazaar Bargain rewards consistent Snipers that are able to land headshots and stay alive.
You might find it difficult to initially deal with bulky classes, such as the Soldierwithout landing headshots. Focus on acquiring headshot kills against weakened enemies, then enjoy being empowered with quick-charging shots.
You lose all bonuses if you die, so don't complacently stay out in the open even once you're on a roll.

However, it cannot fire when unscoped and its tracer rounds reveal your position after every shot. It becomes increasingly more difficult to aim with your scope when enemies are closer, so keep a moderate distance from the main battle.REACTION VIDEO - "Team Fortress 2: Meet The Sniper and The Engineer"
Because your position is revealed after each shot, continuously switch your sniping location. The fully charged shot is best utilized when aiming at the bodies of clustered enemies, as a fully charged headshot from the standard Sniper Rifle is already capable of instantly killing an overhealed Heavy.
Hitman's Heatmaker When using the Hitman's Heatmaker, you will build a Focus meter as you acquire kills and assists.
These boons let you fire off stronger, more accurate shots that should take out enemies before they see your tracer and take cover. The more accurate you are, the more you can ignore this downside.
It allows you to charge your shot while unscoped, at the cost of moving slowly while charging.

However, it can only headshot once fully charged and deals less damage on bodyshots. Most significantly, the Classic cannot be used for quick-scoped headshots, leaving you at a disadvantage against enemy Snipers.
The Classic's charge mechanics allow you to view your entire, unzoomed screen at any time, useful when tracking a target or watching for flanking enemies. Overall, you gain additional vision at the cost of damage.
Nonetheless, it is one of your best close range options. Use it to finish off weakened foes or fight enemies that are difficult to hit, such as Scouts. It is easier to defend yourself with the Submachine Gun rather then the Jarate when you're operating alone or away from teammates. It pairs well with the Sydney Sleeperto finish off enemies affected by Jarate, and the Machinawhich is difficult to use at close range.
Razorback The Razorback will protect you from one enemy backstab before breaking, emitting an electronic sound and disabling the Spy's equipment temporarily.
However, it deprives you of a secondary weapon and renders you unable to be overhealed, making it much harder to defend against close foes. A Spy will typically switch to his Revolver upon seeing the Razorback, which can still kill you before you react.
Thus, the Razorback works best when fighting near allies, where an enemy Spy would risk revealing himself to your entire team if he were to attack you.
Basic Sniper strategy
The Submachine Gun or Jarate might be better anti-Spy choices if you're operating alone. In large firefights, keep a moderate distance, douse multiple enemies at once, and let your teammates finish the job.
The van appears to be painted in "Sahara Dust", a green-grey tone. The Sniper's van bears the Team Fortress series logo on the roof. The Sniper's camper van was eventually turned into a model by Valve for map and machinima makers, and also appears in Thunder Mountain in the very back of the map, by a water tower on a cliff near the RED side, and Mannhattan, by the ramp leading up, away from the robot entryway.
The bobblehead on the Sniper's dash is a caricature of the Civilian as he appears in the original Team Fortress Classic series of games. Originally, the Civilian bobblehead on the dashboard of the camper van at the beginning of the video was a bobblehead of the " Old Geezer " from the "Old Geezer Draft Beer" poster found in-game.
It was later replaced because the intended Sniper reference was too obscure for people to understand.
The music in the video is a homage to the " Magnum Force " theme by Lalo Schifrin. The music in this video is one of two pieces of music featured in a Meet the Team video that has yet to be released as a main menu theme.
In the scene where the Sniper brushes his teeth, his signature Sniper Rifle is reflected in the mirror. It appears correctly right-handed in the mirror, so out of the mirror, it would appear to be designed for use by a left-handed person.
The jars of urine are the very first glimpse of Jaratewhich may also be an explanation for Jarate being referred to in the game files as "urinejar".
In the timelapse scene, the Sniper drinks a brown liquid most likely coffee out of a mug with the words " 1 Sniper". When he is speaking to his father on the phone, he says that he is "not a crazed gunman, Dad", which is another Sniper achievement [kill 3 enemies achieving an objective in a single life].
The achievement in StarCraft is to kill a certain amount of enemies with Sniper rounds in one game, and is the only phrase of the Sniper's standard speech not used as an achievement in Team Fortress 2. The Sniper's Sniper Rifle is leaning against the wall during the enactment of the achievement Be Polite at 1: In the shot directly preceding it, where the Spy is stabbed with the Kukri at 1: The Pyro is wielding the Flare Gunan unlockable weapon which had not been publicly revealed at the time of the video's release.
