The Pillager Sniper is a new Pillager variant mob. They have the same uniform, but in blue color, and have a shield on their back .and wear a medieval Conical-style helmet (see the pictures below).
Pillager Snipers are different in behavior to normal Pillagers. Instead of rushing in and trying to overpower the player from close range, the Snipers prefer to stay back, and shoot from afar.
They can only be damaged while they are loading their arrow, or shooting. When the player is not in their sights, they take out their shield, and very slowly move closer, while blocking any attempts at ranged attacks.
When killed, they have a chance to drop their unique helmet (Sniper's Helmet). The helmet has the same armor rating as iron, but you will deal ~15% extra-damage when using a bow or a crossbow.
