One shot. One kill.

As a sniper in one of the world’s most deadly specialty infantry units, the player will chase down a terrorist organization bent on nuclear Armageddon for the West. The mission: save the USA … and maybe even the planet.

CTU: Marine Sharpshooter, a first person shooter, focuses on the combat sniper, one of the most legendary specialties in the infantry. The player will be one of the elite marksmen, dealing death from afar. Along with the player’s spotter buddy, participate in a series of covert missions that center on preventing the construction and launch of a nuclear missile.

The player/sniper will be accompanied at all times by the spotter, who acts as a radio link to headquarters, provides close fire support, and assists the sniper in finding his target (if the spotter dies, game over). Quality voice-over dialogue draws the player through the plot where the player must chase a fictional terrorist organization around the world, from Afghanistan to Chechnya and then on to a fortress on a small South Pacific island. Along the way the player will encounter wheeled vehicles, helicopters, terrorist troops wielding assault rifles and RPG launchers, and even their own snipers …

Much of the combat will be through the sniper scope mounted on your special sniper weapon, from the massive .50 cal Barrett rifle to the advanced AW. When threats appear closer, there is always the trusty SOCOM .45 pistol (optional silencer) and the infamous K-Bar combat knife.

German version

When installing the game with German installation settings, all blood effects are missing and killed enemies disappear instantly.

Marine Corp

Actually, sharpshooter is NOT the top tier of shooters in the Marine Corp. The tiers for rifle are: marksman, sharpshooter, expert. However, clearly "Marine Rifle Expert" doesn't have the same verbal punch as "Marine Sharpshooter".
