The Sharpshooter perk increases the Players effectiveness with the 9mm, Handcannon, Lever-action rifle, and the Crossbow. The play-style of the perk involves taking out primary threats to the group such as killing Crawlers that are harassing the teams Berserkers, or landing headshots on Sirens that are approaching the group before they reach screaming range. Long distance combat is the specialty of this perk, as evidenced by the weapon bonuses it receives. A single headshot landed by a Sharpshooter with the perks weapons is almost always an instant kill. In the hands of a Sharpshooter, the Crossbow is able to kill multiple specimens in a straight line with one bolt.

The Handcannon and Lever-action rifle are sufficient for "taking out the trash", as they one shot Clots, Crawlers, and Stalkers anywhere on the body. They will kill a Bloat or Siren in one headshot.

The Crossbow is best used on large packs of weak specimens, or strong individual targets such as Scrakes, Fleshpounds, and the Patriarch. A Crossbow headshot on the Patriarch almost always causes him to drop to one knee and begin his retreat to heal himself.

There is a bug with this perk where dual-Handcannon head shots are not being counted, as they are considered Shotgun damage.
