Snipers vs Thieves Wiki
This article is a stub. You can help by adding more information.

Gadgets are important to both a Sniper and Thief. A Sniper who uses Gadgets well can win many games, and so can a Sniper who barely knows how to play. A Thief who plays their cards right and uses the right Gadgets, on the other hand, can escape from any situation.


Gadgets are typically obtained from cases, but can also be purchased from the Black Market directly or from safes. If purchased directly, there is a quantity limit for each rarity, per reset: 100 commons, 50 rares and 10 epics.

Sniper Gadgets[]

The Sniper's Gadgets are separated into three categories; Ammo, Support, and Trap Gadgets.


These Gadgets, except the Machine Gun, when used, give the Sniper one bullet that has varying effects, like inflicting poison damage, freezing and dealing splash damage. These Gadgets are great for picking off individual Thieves as they usually only affect one target, but the Disease Ammo and Explosive Ammo are exceptions to this. Also, Ammo Gadgets cannot be countered by the Trap-Avoid Gadget.

Some Support Gadgets, like the Laser Pointer and Radar provide boosts for the Sniper, while the others drop multiple Trap Gadgets around the map. The boost-type Gadgets provide temporary stat bonuses or reveal the Thieves' location, while the "Trap drop"-type Gadgets help block off important routes for the Thieves, giving the Sniper more time to focus on killing each Thief. Most Support Gadgets have very short cooldowns, making them easily spammable.

Thief Gadgets[]

The Thief's Gadgets are separated into three categories; Boosts, Support and Disguise Gadgets.


Boosts, and their name suggests, usually provide boosts to the Thief's attributes, like speed, health and stamina. Other types of Boost Gadgets can destroy or avoid the Sniper's Traps and reduce a Thief's size.

Support Gadgets for the Thief are mostly team-oriented and can help a full band of Thieves to get to the Getaway Van alive. Most of them drop various Gadgets to cover points around the map, while the others can stun the Sniper and delay the cops' arrival.

Disguise Gadgets serve as an extra layer of protection for the Thief or to conceal their location. It should be worth noting that "wearable" Disguise Gadgets (Barrel, Disguise, Head Safe, Shield) can partially or completely negate the effects of explosions from Explosive Ammo, Mines and Bombs.
