CODEX Entry: SnipetronCodexbw
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 Credits 32px ‍7,500.


This weapon deals mostly Puncture damage.


  • One Vslot.
  • High accuracy.
  • Good critical chance.
  • Infested Volatile Runner won't explode on death by this weapon.


  • 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.
  • Unobtainable since Update 8.


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 Loadouts

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.


  • The Snipetron can break Reinforced glass.
  • This weapon's model looks exactly like Lanka.


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