Class Features

All the following are class features of the warsling sniper prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Warsling snipers gain no proficiency with any weapons, armor, or shields.

Warsling Sneak Attack (Ex): Any time the warsling sniper's target would be denied his Dexterity bonus to AC (regardless of whether he actually has a Dexterity bonus), her ranged sneak attack with the warsling deals extra damage. This extra damage is +1d6 at 1st level, and increases by an additional 1d6 every other level after that (+2d6 at 3rd level and +3d6 at 5th level). Ranged attacks only count as sneak attacks if the target is within 30 feet. In every other way, this ability is identical to the rogue's sneak attack. If the character has the sneak attack ability from another class, the bonuses stack.

Sniper's Vision (Ex): At 2nd level, warsling snipers gain a +2 bonus on sling attacks against targets with some degree of cover; this bonus effectively reduces the benefit of cover because the warsling sniper is adept at aiming for the exposed part of the foe. Furthermore, if a skiprock sniper misses the target due to concealment, she can reroll the miss chance percentile roll to see if she actually hit.

Improved Critical (Ex): At 4th level, the warsling gains Improved Critical (halfling warsling) as a bonus feat.

Improved Ricochet (Ex): At 6th level, the sniper's expertise with the warsling becomes so advanced that when she bounces a skiprock off one target to hit another, the second attack roll is made without the normal —2 penalty. This ability may be used once per round.
