I found an actual use for Archers/Snipers

Lunatic+ enemies can't counter what can't hit them.

Finally, some smart who can actually use archers correctly!

Being forced to use them on a poorly made mode isn't really saying much.

Plus I use Viron every so often in play throughs and never really had a problem since I usually keep him behind people.

I don't know exactly how counter works, but if an enemy with counter goes up against you, does counter activate when your character attacks on HIS turn?
If so, I may need to swap out a few tome-users with an archer or two.

Counter activates if
1) You're in his attack range (close distance)
And
2) If its your turn & you're attacking.

Counter only activates for enemies that hit you in your 1 range zone. Any weapon so long as its in that range.

Archers cant Counterattack in that range so Counter will never work on them.

Snipers are actually one of my favorite class despite being hard to use correctly.

On Lunatic+ Sniper Virion!Inigo is really good as he dishes out good damage and can heal with Brave Bow+Sol+ 51 or 52 Skill Stat. He also has Axe/Lance/Sword Breaker and Pass to escape being surrounded.

His other options are things like Counter/Bow(breaker/faire) and a few other good skills but maybe not as good for Archer classes.

They also get the 2-3 range Long/Towering Bow which is nice. Sorcerers get Mire but its unforgeable Hit really hurts it and they cant attack in 1-2 range making it more risky than using Snipers in the enemy phase.

It works on their AND your turn. Works against any weapon so long as they live and its in the 1 range zone.

There is no reason not to abuse the longbow at least in the later chapters. Just recruit Innes and let him do work with the longbow. Even if he dies who cares? Just recruit him again.

Unless you put some effort into him. But, it should be easy to keep him away from danger in most chapters (rescue staffs and whatnot)
