Snipers, also known as Gunners, are specially trained soldiers who were present on rooftops, sugar plantations and ships. They guarded the area from above, and they were used in executions.
Snipers were equipped with muskets that took a minimum amount of time to arrange bullets and had a low fire rate, but dealt heavy damage. They guarded rooftops and walkways. When engaged in close combat, they would move backwards to keep their distances and shoot since the snipers aren't more skilled in close combat than normal guards, and could be easily dispatched with a counter-attack. They could also be used to shoot enemy soldiers, by using the latter as human shields, or through the use of berserk darts.
