Tier 3 weapon: Sniping weapon. Not allways researched cause most people dont like the weapon and if too many people on a team are sniping, the team tends to lose ground. The lightning gets researched alot more then the mmb because beast has gates, is cheaper and as the humans cannot leap, they are easier to hit. They dont have to push the enemy back in order to get the enemy base. They can spawn in the enemy base if the gate is successful and well placed. It's also pretty easy to hide somewhere with lighting, cause there are no traces that point back to you when you fire, although it may restrict your vision of the enemy. It goes pretty well together with meleeing teammates. The marksman's bow is considered less effective than lighting for this use.
