Free Fire's skill system is one of the most well-liked parts of the game, with players being able to customize their character's abilities to match their playstyles. Each character can have 1 active ability and up to 3 passives.

In this article, we are going to list out the top 5 passive skills for snipers in Free Fire. If you like sniping enemies from afar, these 5 abilities are probably the best.

1 - Laura

Laura's ability is simple yet effective - it increases your accuracy by 35% when scoped in. While it is not nearly as effective on sniper rifles, her ability works wonderfully on DMRs and ARs, the low-accuracy sniping weapons.

Unlike a lot of skills in Free Fire, Laura's ability works on all guns, so you don't have to worry about changing weapons. The only weakness of this skill is that you need a scope for it to work - the bonus accuracy won't work when hip-firing.

2 - Shirou

Shirou's ability tracks players who shot you and gives you bonus armor penetration for your first hit against them. This skill works amazingly in long-range fights - the tracking part lets you detect the location of your foe... while the armor-piercing component lets you deal much higher damage with AWM or Kar98k.

Shirou's ability boost a lot of damage to sniper rifles.

Shirou's bonus is wasted on weapons with innate armor-piercing, however.

3 - Maro

Maro's ability is the easiest way to boost damage in a sniper build. As all sniper guns have long-range, you would be able to get the most out of Maro's damage boost. 20% extra damage is not a joke, especially when it is multiplied in a headshot, for example. You should be able to one-shot kill enemies with Level 3 helmets by headshotting them with Maro's skill.

Maro is one of the few characters with a skill that outright boosts damage.

Falcon Fervor also has an extra bonus for marked targets - you can combine it with Clu or Shirou's abilities for even more damage. This is amongst the best passive skills for snipers ever created.

4 - Hayato

Against an opponent without Bushido, Hayato users get up to 90% armor penetration on their shots (based on HP). This is the reason why Hayato is so good in a sniper build - you can even leave your HP low to make use of the AP boost.

5 - Dasha

Almost all long-range sniping weapons have the weakness of high recoil. This makes controlling them much more difficult, as you have to fix your aim every few shots. Dasha's skill is pretty effective in dealing with that problem - it reduces both recoil and recoil buildup.

Dasha's recoil reduction can be super useful with the right weapons.

The extra component of reducing fall damage also works pretty well in Sniper builds. You can just jump straight down from your vantage point without having to worry about taking damage. This is great amongst passive skills for snipers.
