Re: XCOM: Enemy Unknown
What I usually do with my sniper is get him up to Squad-sight and then keep him pretty close to the mission start location. I'll move him as lines of sight change, but I keep him as far away from the aliens as possible. In all of my play-throughs, my sniper tends to be my most valuable soldier and the only one I can count on most of the time. Giving him Double Tap at the Colonel level makes him that much more valuable.
