Stormtrooper snipers, also known as sniper troops, were specialized stormtroopers equipped with sniper rifles. These units wore a blue pauldron over their shoulder and a visor attached to their helmet. They also had a black bandolier strapped across their chest plate. Some of the troopers were specialists pulled from the ranks of scout troopers, who were trained in using the E-11s sniper rifle, wore scout trooper armor in gray, and were known as Imperial sharpshooters.
