Hunts with the powerful greatbow.
Sniper (スナイパー, Sunaipā?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Only viera can become Snipers after mastering two Archer abilities, whereas humes become Hunters. Snipers are the powerhouses of the viera job and wield the almighty greatbows in battle. The Sniper's array of sharpshooting abilities allows them to steadily weaken the opponent during battle. It is recommended that the player have Maintenance equipped while fighting enemy snipers, or the player might lose their equipment.

Snipers are fast and have the highest Attack out of all viera jobs, but their other stats are rather mediocre, and leave much to be desired. Purely Attack-oriented viera should consider the Sniper over the Assassin for leveling, since Snipers have higher HP, Attack and Resistance, and the extra MP, Magic Power and Speed the Assassin would give are not necessary, since the Sniper is already faster than almost everything else.
