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. Its high focus on Puncture b Puncture damage makes it an ideal weapon for bringing down heavily-armored targets.

Was retired from the game due to lore issues where Corpus do not use weapons that fire bullets, and instead rely on energy weapons or railgun technology. It was reintroduced during the Informant Event, and then later offered as a reward from the Project Undermine tactical alert.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Using Wildfire and Magazine Warp on their own will give you one bullet each, while using both at the same time will give you 2 extra bullets.


  • 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.
    • The Snipetron blueprint was added as a reward for the Project Undermine Tactical Alert from the 2nd of October 2015 to the 5th of October 2015.
  • As this was the first true sniper rifle in the game, Grineer Ballista were equipped with this weapon before the Vulkar was introduced.
  • The Snipertron shares an identical appearance with the Lanka, which effectively replaced it as the Corpus sniper rifle.


  • The Snipetron will have 30 rounds of Max Ammo instead of 72 when the Castanas or the Angstrum are equipped in the secondary-slot. This might be because they both draw from the same sniper ammo pool, and the above weapons have an ammo capacity of 30.
