Snipers are an advanced infantry unit in Warfare 1917 and Warfare 1944.

Warfare 1917Edit

In this game, they are highly effective against infantry, even those in trenches, and have the longest range of any infantry unit. However, if the enemy gets close enough to return fire, they will be killed easily.
