** The following mission involves killing one of the other generals who was at the meeting now that HeKnowsTooMuch and his [[TheMafiya Russian mafia contact]]. By far the most efficient way to complete the mission involves sniping the pair of them [[OneHitPolykill with a single shot]] from the top of a water tower across the river from the park where they're meeting.

** ''[[Videogame/Hitman2SilentAssassin]]'' has its second real mission follow suit with a sniping mission that involves guessing who to kill between 4 look likes based off of small traits about them told over radio. It can be done with out a sniper rifle however (in fact as seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dmQkRMBVzs here]] its still possible to get silent assassin ranking taking the direct rout)

* The duels with Sniper Wolf in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''. The second, though, is easier if you use your remote guided missile instead.
** [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill Or Stingers]].
* The [[spoiler: second]] fight against [[spoiler: Vamp]] in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty''. Different from the other two because [[spoiler: Vamp]] does not have a sniper rifle, he is instead attacking your {{escort|Mission}} with his knives, and of course if she dies it's game over. It's not a very difficult boss battle, though.
** It's also entirely pointless. In what is the series' best case of TheBattleDidntCount, [[spoiler: even after Raiden successfully shoots Vamp several times in the face and prevents Emma's health bar from even reaching the half way mark, she is critically wounded, and you are taken to her death scene. This all after he had already drowned in the life reaction pool after the first fight against him. Way to waste your time.]]
*** To add even more insult to injury, not only [[spoiler:did Emma die anyway, but Vamp survived the bullet(s) to the head due to his HealingFactor and makes a return in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'']].
* Possibly the duel with The End in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''; although he wields a sniper rifle against you, you have options other than sniping him back, such as sneaking up behind him.
** Or advancing the clock on your [=PS2=] a few weeks so he dies of old age.
** Despite the cheap methods of defeating The End, the game rewards you for going the extra mile and NOT draining his life bar, but to actually break his stamina bar, by giving you a special camouflage pattern and his non-lethal sniper rifle.
* And to round out the series, ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' puts you up against Crying Wolf, who uses a ''[[{{BFG}} rail gun]]'' with a sniper scope (that is, when she's not trying to trample you). Like the fight with The End, though, you can use other weapons against her. Defeating her results in you getting the rail gun, which will be essential (due to its lethality) for an upcoming segment.

** And to round out the series, ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' features the battles against Quiet and the Skulls. You can theoretically defeat Quiet with normal weapons and supply drops, but Quiet will FlashStep a mile away any time you get close, making the sniper rifle the best option to take her out. The Skulls are, in practice, just a group of four Quiets with even better aim and stronger rifles.

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' has you providing sniper cover for secret agent Harry Tipper while he attempts to [[DressingAsTheEnemy steal some enemy uniforms]]. Also later on, when you [[spoiler:escort ''your past self'' in the first mission]].

* ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' has a sniping mission where you have to protect one of your friends as he runs away. He's pretty ineffective at anything but hiding, and will get shot up instantly if you're not watching out for enemies.
* In contrast to the last example, ''VideoGame/FarCry4'' has a mission where you're to cover Willis from the control tower of an airport with a .50 rifle. Although Willis will be turned to swiss cheese without your help, he's ''very'' handy with a rifle and does a very good job protecting himself. Alternately, due to [[GoodBadBugs a glitch]] the enemies tend to completely ignore you in this mission; you can completely screw the system and jump right into the fray, and the guards will be too busy opening up on Willis to even bother with you.
