Snipe deals a large amount of Physical Damage to one target. In addition to being the highest damage ability in the Bow line, it is one of the longest ranged attacks of any Skill line. The Focused Aim morph allows other Bow attacks to have a greater range as well, in addition to a reduction in the target's armor. Alternatively, the Lethal Arrow morph adds a Poison Damage over time to the attack, and decreases the effectiveness of Healing on the target.


  • The poison from Lethal Arrow does not stack, so you should wait for it to take its full effect before using it again on the same target.
  • The Piercing Spray set from Asylum Sanctorium can cause this ability to do more damage when combined with Arrow Spray.
