There's something exciting about seeing sniper characters in action. Maybe it’s because they do their best work from afar, or maybe it’s the fact that most sniper stories tend to be a bit quieter and way more intense. While we’re constantly inundated with films depicting overpowered superheroes who love to get up close and punch goons in the face, the greatest sniper characters are rarely hulking WWE rejects who only know how to use brute force. Instead, they’re well-trained, resourceful, and extremely well-equipped. In fact, the best snipers win battles by being just a bit smarter - and stealthier - than their opponents.
Whether you prefer steadfast snipers like Private Jackson Saving Private Ryan or cocky characters like Merle Dixon in The Walking Dead, there’s no denying the fact that a good sniper can always be counted on to turn the tide in any battle. Which of these fictional snipers do you think never misses their mark?
