Im not a fan of Virion, but I want my team to have decent archer. Are there any characters who relcass to a good archer or a child that would make a good sniper? In case its relevant, my Noire is going to be gaius!noire when I get his support to S rank.

Prince Innes : P

But, seriously for the main game Innes is a pretty good user of the Longbow and you don't have to put any work into him / waste exp on Virion

I'm actually planning on trying Sniper Inigo (aggressor, bowfaire, lb, galeforce, arms, double bow) + Sniper Noire and see how that works.

Worst case scenario, Inigo goes back to Hero and Noire back to Sorceror.

Snipers are straight booty, use a Warrior, Assassin or Bow Knight

You know, REAL units

For me Noire is an incredible sniper. But I'm 80% sure it's because MU is her dad. It's going to be hard marrying MU to someone else next playthrough. I don't want to live in a world where Noire isn't a beast.

If you want a Sniper, I'd suggest someone who can get Galeforce. Even better if it's a male child so he can get Dread Fighter for Aggressor. Galeforce, Aggressor, Counter, Renewal, Limit Break to get the most out of a Sniper on your turn since you won't be reliably attacking on enemy turn. Maybe swap Renewal for Lifetaker/Sol.

If you keep the Sniper in the supporting position of a Pair, then you won't be any worse off than if you picked another class, really. If you go that route though, I'd take Lifetaker on him for a healing skill and replace Counter with an attack skill proc.

Gregor!Noire:

Limit Break, Vantage, Armsthrift, Vengeance, Wrath

As a Bride class. Penultimate Noire right there.

Bride can't use double/long bow which is the whole point of using a sniper. Otherwise you're better off with the other bow using classes.
