The sniper shoulders applied on a player character.

The Sniper, formally designated Supplementary bandoleer, Semi-rigid, Special Applications Rifle (Anti-materiel), is a shoulder armor attachment designed for carrying sniper rifle ammunition. The accessory is compatible with the MJOLNIR Mark V PAA.[1]


Design details[edit]

Each shoulder bandoleer holds three sniper rounds, presumably to facilitate the reloading of half-empty magazines for the rifle. The ammunition is High Velocity Armour Piercing Rounds, measuring 144mm in length, and 14.5mm in diameter, for SRS99-AM sniper rifles.


NOBLE Team's Jun-A266 wore a Sniper ammunition bandoleer on his left shoulder.[2]
