So you just randomed Sniper and you only have sixty seconds to learn how to play Sniper. What will you do? Never fear: this is DotA in :60.

Sniper is like the Frank Costanza of DotA 2. Why? Because when the going gets tough -- you need a bro.

He's got four pinpoint-accurate powers.

"Rain of Terror" brings a favorable change in the weather that leaves your enemies wounded and stuck in the mud.

Line up a double set of passives -- "Stop Short" will end a date leaving that special someone a little lightheaded and "Rise of the Phoenix" will give you the attack range normally reserved for a raptor.

Ulti-time! You sayin', you want a "Piece of Me"?

With "Rain of Terror" you can take a headcount, with "Stop Short" you can keep their bells ringin', with "Rise of the Phoenix" you can have the vision of Sun Myung Moon, and with "Piece of Me" you can give 'til it hurts. Whaaasssupppp?

So what about items?

He's got a hot temper -- you'll need some armor!

He never shows his feet -- think good strong boots.

Power Treads and Shadow Blade are the most popular, but if you want my advice, Eye of Scadi will turn your beef into chili and if anyone has a chance of holding on to a Divine Rapier, it's the guy who just killed you from the other side of the board.

Thanks for watching this video, good luck in your match, run from men in capes, harass with your range!
