Always ensure that Snipetron is fully loaded before heading on to further combat.
Use your melee or your sidearm for close-quarters combat.
The Bronco, Brakk, and Detron all make for an excellent compliment to the Snipetron, covering close range battles where the Snipetron suffers.
As a general note, ammo consumption should not be too big of an issue as long as players make full use of their abilities and melee weapons in conjunction with Snipetron.
Use the Sniper Ammo Mutation mod to greatly relieve the low total ammo and ammo drop chance for sniper rifles.
Like all sniper rifles the Snipetron works well with Warframes with mobility-boosting abilities such as Zephyr or Nova.
The Snipetron was suddenly removed from the game's Market in Update 8 and can no longer be obtained. According to the developers, the Snipetron's use of standard bullets in lieu of energy projectiles did not fit the lore of the Corpus, and it was removed as a result.
Players were able to obtain a Snipetron Vandal and a Blueprint for the normal Snipetron through the Informant Event after killing 20 Informers. The developers admitted that this was an apology for the Snipetron's sudden removal. Following the event, any piece of content to be removed from the market is now given a week's advance notice.
As this was the first true sniper rifle in the game, Grineer Ballista were equipped with this weapon before the Vulkar was introduced.
