Like regular crewmen, their head is protected by an armor helmet that prevents bullet damage, but does not stop other types of weapon damage.
- Sniper Crewmen are normally treated as if they holding Dera rifles, as their tactics, more or less, are similar to those of Grineer.
- Their Lanka sniper rifles are far more lethal than Dera rifles in every shot, thus avoidance is a must to these shots.
- Like all Corpus Crewmen, almost all their body parts except for their heads can take any damage types evenly. This makes quite vulnerable to weapons that regular Grineers would normally resist.
