The counter to snipers? Especially marksman? Concealment Operatives. You wouldn't know that, of course, since there's about 3 of them left. But boy do they ever counter snipers. I can't remember when I last lost a 1on1 to a MM sniper/gunslinger, and any other spec needs to seriously outgear or outplay me.

Asassins work, too, but operatives have the added benefit of Toxin Scan (removes basically everything that sniper can throw) and Evasion, which dodges the Ambush at 100% chance. Chances shift in favour of the sniper if I'm forced to open on him with entrench active, but even then it's not impossible. Snipers are rock, all melees are scissors, and conc ops are paper. At least in my mind.
