The SNIPETRON is a powerful and accurate rifle that sports optical zoom capabilities. Perfect for long range engagements.

–In-Game Description

As of Update 8, the Snipetron was removed from the game's Market and can no longer be obtained. According to developers, the Snipetron was a Corpus weapon, but used bullets, and did not fit the lore. Thus, its removal.

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


  • Deals innate Armor Piercing elemental damage.


  • One 18px slot.
  • Very high damage.
  • High accuracy.
  • 20% critical chance.
  • Deals Armor Piercing damage by default.


  • Long reload time.
  • Slow rate of fire.
  • High Recoil.
  • Small clip size.
  • Draws from the sniper ammo pool, which is among the rarest of all ammo drops.
  • Impossible to obtain after Update 8


As of Update 8 the Snipetron is no longer available, though developers have indicated that it may return in the future, perhaps temporarily as an event reward.[citation needed]

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.
  • If you use Magazine Warp, upgrade it only to 15%, because the rest is wasted. (it will only carry a maximum of 5 rounds, which is +15% rounded)
  • Adding a level 0 Cryo Rounds mod will allow the slowing of enemies in case first shot is not a killing shot, increasing the ease of headshots with your next shot. (If you don't have Cryo RoundsStormbringer can let you stun Sgt. Nef Anyo)
  • 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. 
  • The Bronco makes for an excellent compliment to the Snipetron, covering close range battles where the Snipetron suffers.
  • The Snipetron can break Reinforced glass.
