Jiralhanae Snipers[2] are Jiralhanae specialists that serve the Banished.[1]

Overview[edit]

Like Kig-Yar Snipers, Jiralhanae snipers serve as long-ranged combat specialists, though they are more durable and less stealthy than their Kig-Yar counterparts. Jiralhanae snipers can operate alone or in groups.[1]

History[edit]

Many Jiralhanae snipers fought in the war for Zeta Halo.[1]

Equipment[edit]

Armor[edit]

Jiralhanae snipers wear helmets equipped with tactical eyepieces and triple-beam laser sights.[1] Like the Berserkers, their headgear can be shot off, rendering them vulnerable to headshots. They also carry large antenna-like devices on their backs.[1]

Weaponry[edit]

Blue armored Jiralhanae snipers typically utilize Skewers as their primary weapons and carry Manglers as sidearms, while red armored snipers usually wield shock rifles as their main weapons and carry Disruptors as sidearms.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The Jiralhanae Snipers are the Jiralhanae counterpart of the Kig-Yar Snipers, albeit with different weapons, more melee damage, and more health.
