Sniper Armor (スナイパーアーマー Sunaipā Āmā) is a Sniper Joe pilotting a lilac jumping machine equipped with a machine gun. The armor was originally created by Dr. Light. When encountered it shoots the gun or tries to crush Mega Man. Destroying the armor will cause the Sniper Joe pilotting it to attack on foot.


In Mega Man 2, Sniper Armors appear in Flash Man's stage, one is in Heat Man's stage, two are in Quick Man's stage, and are both with and without the walking armor in the final stages.

In Mega Man: The Wily Wars, they appear in the second Wily Tower stage.

A single Sniper Armor appears in the Wily Stage (a replica of Quick Man's stage) in Mega Man on the Game Gear.

In Mega Man 11, a new type of Sniper Armor appears, which is again piloted by a Sniper Joe.  This variety can't jump but can walk while firing its gun.
