Manufactured by the Corpus, the Snipetron is a powerful and accurate rifle that sports optical zoom capabilities. Perfect for long range engagements.

The Snipetron is a high quality sniper rifle with immense zoom. It is extremely useful for support gameplay.

As of Update 8, the Snipetron was removed from the game's Market and can no longer be obtained. According to the developers, the Snipetron's use of standard bullets as opposed to being a railgun or energy weapon 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.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 7,500.


This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.


  • High accuracy.
  • Good critical chance.
  • Has innate Punch Through depth of 2.5.


  • Deals little Impact or Slash damage.
  • Small magazine size.
  • Long reload time.
  • Draws from the sniper ammo pool, which is among the rarest of all ammo drops.


As of Update 8 the Snipetron is no longer available though the Market, though a blueprint was given out along with the Vandal variant to players who participated in the Informant Event, provided the player killed at least 20 drones.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

Main article: Category:Snipetron Build

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • The Snipetron is great for headshots and is very useful against the Grineer.
  • Always ensure that Snipetron is fully loaded before heading on to further combat.
  • Use melee or sidearm against close foes instead of using Snipetron.
    • The Bronco, Brakk, and Detron all make for an excellent compliment to the Snipetron, covering close range battles where the Snipetron suffers.
  • Adding a rank 2 Wildfire will give you 1 extra bullet, a rank 2 Magazine Warp will give you 1 extra bullet. Combine Magazine Warp and Wildfire for a total of 6 bullets in the magazine.
  • 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. 
  • It works well in conjunction to a Loki, Zephyr, or Nova on the edge of open air maps.
  • Use the Sniper Ammo Mutation mod to greatly relieve the low total ammo and ammo drop chance for sniper rifles.
  • Like all snipers It works well with a Loki, Excalibur, Zephyr, or Nova that has gotten to a high place on the map walls using their powers to do so. 


  • The Snipetron can break Reinforced glass.
  • This weapon's model was reused for the Lanka.


  • This is what the zoom-HUD looks like in Corpus Snipers.
