The Hyperion Sniper is a common infantry unit deployed by Hyperion.
Hyperion Snipers are known for their high accuracy, damage, and stealth ability. Unlike most other armed enemies, Hyperion Snipers will actually hit Vault Hunters at extreme distances. Considering they use high-damage sniper rifles, they can be very dangerous. The Sniper generally has low health and once he loses his shield, he will be unable to hide until it regenerates.
- When killed, the sniper's targeting laser may stay on.
- Hyperion Snipers have different names for each difficulty level:
- Hyperion Snipers are mentioned by Handsome Jack in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. When the Vault Hunters reach Research and Development, Jack mentions to them, in response to their questions about stalkers, that he was planning to utilize the cloaking ability of stalkers to Hyperion Snipers in the future so that enemies can be taken down without detection.
- The same technology is also applied to Hyperion Infiltrators.
