Octosnipers are Octarian fighters that shoot ink with long, thin weapons.

Appearance

Octosnipers appear much taller than many of their Octarian counterparts. They are stationed on immobile platforms, where they blow shots of ink through instruments that appear similar to a lengthened megaphone.

Gameplay

Octosnipers are completely immobile unless on a moving platform. They are traditionally situated in higher locations to get a better shot at the player. When an Octosniper spots a player, they will focus their laser sight on the player, charge, and fire a blast similar to that of a fully charged shot from a weapon in the charger category. This creates a trail of purple ink.

It is recommended the player stays behind cover and hide in their ink when confronting an Octosniper, as a direct hit from one is fatal. The most effective way of dealing with an Octosniper is get close to it through ink or cover and spray it down before it notices. If there is no easy cover or ink available, a Sub Weapon such as a Splat Bomb can distract it to give the player time. These sub weapons can also be easily used to splat it in general given the fact that Octosnipers cannot move and, in turn, can't run away from a sub weapon.
