    Default Rogue Sniper Feats [FEAT]

    Bandit Archer [General Feat]
    Your keen archery abilities allow you to stike unprotected areas from a greater distance.
    Prerequisites: Weapon Focus in a ranged weapon, Point Blank Shot, DEX 21+, Sneak Attack 5d6
    Benefits: Maximum range for a ranged sneak attack increases by 30' to 60'; weapon must be used within one range increment of target (e.g., a sling has a range increment of 50', so with this feat, its maximum sneak attack range would be 50', not 60')
    Special: May be taken in lieu of a Rogue special ability.


    Bandit Sniper [General Feat]
    A steady aim allows you to find vital spots even from a distance away.
    Prerequisites: Weapon Focus in a ranged weapon, Point Blank Shot, Crippling Strike
    Benefits: On ranged sneak attack, target subject to Crippling Strike penalties as if struck by a melee sneak attack.
    Special: May be taken in lieu of a Rogue special ability.

    I recommend
    1 you add a prereq to of sneak attack (more then just rogues have sneek att) instead of making it a rogue feat only.

    2 add it to the list of rogue bonus feats like fighter bonus feats.

    I think they look pretty good. I'd limit the first one to one time feat. You might put something about not being able to have a max range higher than max range of the weapon, but that should be implicitly understood anyhow.

    There are similar benefits given by some prestige classes in Complete Warrior or Complete Adventurer. I don't have the books in front of me to give quotes, but if you've got them handy you might take a peek and see if you find anything useful.

    Suggestions incorporated to Bandit Archer. Also made Bandit Sniper a general feat instead of Rogue bonus feat only.

    The Rogue can take a bonus feat instead of a special ability at 10th, 13th, 16th, or 19th level.

    I think that Far Shot would be a more appropriate prerequisite than Point Blank Shot for these feats.

    I considered that, but rejected it since we're still talking about a single range increment.
