double tap

Double Tap is a capability of the Sniper Class in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Allows each actions for use for Standard Shot, Headshot, or Disabling Shot, supplied no strikes had been made. 1 flip cooldown.

Overwatch just isn’t obtainable after the primary shot has been fired.


  • If there isn’t any obtainable goal after the primary shot has been fired (and supplied this ability just isn’t on cooldown), the sniper’s flip is routinely ended.
  • The second shot should be executed instantly after the primary shot, so it is extremely really useful to have sight on not less than two enemies earlier than taking pictures. This will be carried out with the Sniper or with one other soldier if the Sniper has the ability Squadsight.


  • A Double Tap is a taking pictures approach the place two photographs are fired in speedy succession on the similar goal with the identical sight image (totally different from the managed pair, the place a second sight image is acquired for the second shot).
  • A “double tap” can even confer with firing an additional shot to substantiate a hostile kill, akin to delivering a headshot to an already incapacitated or lifeless goal
