Not if its 1 on 1

And notice all I had to do was LOS for a second and you switched targets and let me free cast.

Its not a win-win though because I'm still LOSIng...I just happened to take an orbital strike. Have you ever tried to kill someone 1 on 1 as a sniper without using channeled abilities?

I'm not sitting here saying snipers are easy to kill. But if you think they are immune to LOS then I would disagree with that.

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.

I actually think how to counter snipers has been talked about enough. Since I play one; I know how and really don't need more people knowing. It is epic, though; the chess match you get if you have sniper on sniper violence.

Assassins have force shroud, game over. This thread is definitely in the realm of TL;DR but if you're either stealth class and you're having a lot of trouble with snipers then you should learn to play your class.
