Are Snipers Rated Viable?

I have a level 38 merc I've been leveling solely through PvP. Been playing her since early access and this is my highest level character.

Just rerolled a sniper and they seem very fun, but I know that the difference between pugs and premade/rated PvP is huge. So my question is, are Snipers a good class for PvP in those scenarios? Or should I finish leveling my merc to 50 and use her for rateds?

Snipers are by far the absolute best class for point defense. Point defense is a crucial part of every single WZ. Yes they will be a very important class to have on any rWZ team.

Snipers are doing pretty well. They're SO gear dependant though, you'll have to invest alot of time... getting datacrons, maxing companions affection for the bonusses, etc etc. Full WH wouldn't hurt either.

If a sniper can freecast / gets healed properly they can do insane damage. They are also excellent defenders if they don't panick in PvP situations.

There's just not many good snipers to begin with. We have 1 good sniper in our server and he kills anything and anyone 1v1. 21k hp in PvP gear
