Tips and Details

  • CP is gained only once you've landed a successful hit with any shot from the skill.
    • Despite being a Strength skill, you will only gain 1 CP instead of the usual 4.
  • It is recommended to use this skill in a safe location as you will not have any damage reduction while in Super Armor status, making it risky to use.
    • While immune to nearly all disabling conditions, you can still be inflicted with Status 081.pngEnemy DebuffFreeze.
  • The initial casting MP cost does not count into the total possible MP used firing.
  • Due to its extremely low initial cost, the skill is very useful to refresh the duration of the Heroic/El Tear effect that increases the damage of Strength skills.
  • The charged shot can be reflected and absorbed.
  • The maximum aiming angles are 45 degrees up and 45 degrees down


  • Marbas refers to the Great President Demon of Hell that governs thirty-six legions of demons. He answers truly on hidden or secret things, causes and heals diseases, teaches mechanical arts, and changes men into other shapes.
  • In this skill's Korean name, the word 사선 has various meanings, some of which include "death ray" , "oblique", or "line of fire". The most direct translation would be "Border of Life and Death", which is referenced in the Skill Note's name.
  • If you enter your victory or defeat animation while in Sniper Mode, the blaster and the "laser" sight will not disappear.

Video Description
Between its Skill Note release and the 03/24/2016 KR Patch, this skill would fire additional soul projectiles when the Gathered Soul buff was active. The removal of this effect was never listed as part of the patch, as it was meant to fix an issue with it instead, but it was silently removed until the 11/03/2016 KR patch took it out of the tooltip.
