Tabula Rasa: Guide to Snipers

Posted Thu, Apr 03, 2008 by Shayalyn

Who Doesn't Like Ninjas with Rifles?

Like a ninja with a huge rifle, Tabula Rasa's Sniper represents the standard for deliberate termination through accurate fire. With recent changes in Patch 1.6, the Sniper had some tweaking done to boost it's fun factor.  We've gone through and adjusted our recommendations and even added an explanation for proper use of the Torqueshell Rifle which should provide you with everything you need to know. Carpet Bombing, Net Guns, and so much more are discussed just inside.

So you think you have what it takes to be an AFS Sniper huh? Only the sneakiest and most patient soldiers in the military can handle the tasks required. You will become the master of long range assassination by entering a kill zone quietly, terminating a target, and disappearing before the enemy ever knew what hit them. You will be as silent as the wind, move like running water through various terrains, and blend into the landscape as if you were completely invisible. The Sniper is a natural extension of the Ranger class, the major difference being CQB (close quarters battle) is no longer a viable option for you.


Years have passed since the cancellation of Tabula Rasa, but some fans still want the game back.
