|Mastermind: Sharpshooter||Tier 3|
|Basic (3 pt): Increases your reload speed with SMGs, Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles by 15%.|
|Ace (6 pt): Any killing headshot will reduce your reload time by 100% for 4 seconds. Can only be triggered by SMGs, Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles fired in single shot fire mode.|
The Aced version affects the reload time of the player's other weapon as well, provided they switch to it and begin a reload within two seconds of getting a headshot kill.
The aced version reduces reload time across the board so long as the player is firing in single shot (and, sensibly, already taking advantage of enemies' headshot multipliers). The weapons that benefit most from this skill are sniper rifles, which have some of the longest reload times as well as low magazine sizes to necessitate frequent reloads. Coupled with Ammo Efficiency, a sharpshooter in name and deed could theoretically use a sniper rifle as a weapon for general use rather than saving its limited ammo for specials.
Overkill aced can be paired with the aced version of this skill, due to it granting a 80% speed increase to weapon swapping.
