After I wiped my player data, I have to get to at least Corporal.
90% of my runs are non-angelic Tech on UV, and don't yield any new badges.

So, I tried something else. Suddenly, I won.

Building a Sniper was a challenge in a close-quarter maps, before I got to Toxic Caves. There, I found an ENV Helmet, and with its Darkvision and Heat Vision I never had to worry that there's something behind the next door! It's really awesome.
The armor I found there also had a great synergy with Sniper (don't remember what it was), but I decided to keep my better protected Combat armor.

7.62 sniper rifle is not that bad, when a Sniper extends its range. The ammo is abundant like dirt, you can open doors from a distance with it, and I was also lucky to kick an ADV2 variant out of some Exalted. I even dumped my .44 PAB rifle, though I did have 100 shots for it – I just found that I never switched to it. So I got a rocket launcher instead, to have more variety in my toolbox - for example, to smoke enemies out from behind corners.

Except for Toxic Caves, all good stuff I found was not from special levels or vaults, but was dropped by Exalteds. Well, I did get a couple of modpacks from vaults, but nothing Sniper specific.

Movement speed really helps. I need to remember to stick more A-mods on armor, even instead of a P-mod.

Any idea whether this build is still viable now that precise is gone from the accuracy mods for most weapons? I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to build sniper characters since I can only find precise on incredibly lucky drops, or from modding smgs...
