|Weapon Class/Type||Sniper Rifle/Mounted Sniper Rifle|
The Remote Sniper is a Heavy Sniper that has been mounted onto an automated system. At the bottom is a stand on which there are a few hydraulics to help move the gun to aim. There are sensors fitted at the front just below the gun that probably help in calculating the parameters for an accurate shot. This Remote Sniper is placed in the back of a Declasse Burrito near the Galileo Observatory.
It is mounted onto a system that helps it shoot accurately by calculating the perfect shot after measuring wind direction and distance to target. A red box appears when taking a shot at a moving target to accurately hit the target considering the delay caused by the bullet travel time. In the mission a red box appears a little ahead of the airplane so as to hit the engine.
The player has to shoot at the red box to successfully hit the engine. The interface while using the remote sniper has a blue tint with a scope that has an advanced crosshair. On the right it shows wind direction.
