The Sniper Turret protects the Power Stations that keep the shield around the Data Vault intact. Once an intruder enters a room with a Power Station these turrets will immediately set their sights on their target and shoot them with a powerful plasma laser shot.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Sniper Turret is a powerful stationary defense emplacement from Rival Tech. It will only spawn embedded into the ceiling and will spawn throughout Industrial Sabotage missions (mainly in the caves where the power stations are located) while also usually appearing in regular missions with the Rival Presence Mutator. The Caretaker is also able to deploy multiple at a time onto the cave ceiling in its second and third phases. Upon a Dwarf appearing in it's Line of Sight (LoS), regardless of the range, it will be alerted and configure into it's attack mode by popping out of its frame.


The Sniper Turret will paint and track onto the first dwarf that enters it's LoS with an initially harmless laser beam that is red in color that then starts pulsing in increasingly shorter intervals as it prepares to fire, the laser will simultaneously start fading into a lighter orange hue as it finishes charging up, but before releasing, it will emit a low and short electronic buzz a split second before firing as an audio cue that it is about to shoot. The turret's laser will vanish then re-appear in it's original red color as it cools down, breaking LoS after the laser vanishes will cause it to pause and stow itself back into it's frame if no dwarf re-appears after a few seconds. Breaking LoS after the beam locks onto you after it re-appears will not cause it to hold it's fire and it will continue tracking and firing at you even when behind cover. The Sniper Turret is the lowest health Rival Tech turret but still usually requires accurate medium to long range weaponry to quickly destroy it due to it's inconvenient mounting location.
