Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level)
All of the following are features of the Sniper prestige class.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Snipers gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.
Sniping: Beginning at first level, a sniper gains +2 (to Hide, Move Silently, and Spot, but only when the target is at two or more range increment).
Ranged Precision: As with the Order of The Bow Initiate, starting at first and every three levels there after (4th, 7th, 10th) the Sniper receives +1d8 damage to any ranged attack against a flat-footed or helpless creature. However, for a Sniper to receive this bonus the target of his/her attack must be at last one range increment away.
Skill Focus (Hide):As the feat.
Grace (Ex): At 3rd level, a sniper gains an competence bonus on all Reflex saving throws equal to her class level divided by three (rounded down). This ability functions for a sniper only when she is wearing light or no armor and not using a shield.
Skill Focus (Move Silently): As the feat.
Weapon Specialization: The Sniper gains the benefit of Weapon Specialization applied to a single bow or crossbow of his choice. If the Sniper already has that feat, they instead gain the benefit of Greater Weapon Specialiaztion
Deadly Sniping: If you study a target for three rounds before performing a sniping attack then the target must make a Fort save or die (DC 10+sniper level+ Int Modifier). Should the target succeed on his Fort save, the attack is regarded a critical hit + Int bonus x2. The target cannot be within more than one range increment, nor can it be farther then 10 range increments from the Sniper.
