Well, Sniper is really flexible when it comes to item builds.

One build would be of course, the cookie cutter build:
Build #1
Treads AGI
Satanic
MKB
Butterfly
Buriza
Your damage item of choice (I usually go for 2nd MKB)
(Be sure you pick up Buriza after MKB so that they have a chance to proc together)

Another build is one my friend makes and is really awesome. But, it needs maxing Shrapnel early and range:
Build #2
Treads (Travel is also viable)
Dagger
Diffusal
Manta
Butterfly
Linken's
(Not in that order, order is your choice)

One I like to use is:
Build #3
Treads (or Phase)
Manta
Eos
Satanic
MKB
Heart of Tarrasque (or Butterfly, depends on the nuking power of the enemy and, sometimes Ethereal Blade, combo-ing with Assasinate.)

You can always make your item build revolving around your ultimate and Shrapnel:
Build #4
Phase Boots
Ethereal Blade
Dagger
Desolator
Manta (so that you can confuse the enemy while using Assasinate)
Heart of Tarrasque

Last build, which I have used only once (didn't work pretty well but I think it is viable):
Build #5
Treads
Mjollnir
Butterfly
MKB x2
Assault Cuirrass

Now, I know I have not mentioned Lothar's but, frankly, Sniper doesn't need it. If he gets some early Bracers (1 or 2), he is not that squishy. I hope I helped you out, I can't think of anything else right now but, experiment on your own and you will see. Build #2, I suggest you try. Noone can catch you if you use your items correctly. Slowing is everything Sniper needs, and with his superior range and Manta, Enemy won't move from all those ministuns.

my build

threads
lothars
desolator
manta
buriza
dagger (since by nw opponents would have gotten gem or have placed wards, lothar's invi is useless nw and the item is ONLY used for its stats, dmg, movement speed and backstab dmg when active)

if game drags on

sell deso for satanic
lothars for any item of ur choice, preferably butterfly or assault

i do not get mkb because it does not stack with snipers mini stun.

@biel666. u misunderstood me. who doesnt buy lothars for the invi. but lothars is only gud early mid game. useless late. since by mid-late game there WILL be GEMS to HUNT u down. tht is why i get blink late. for the jukes, escapes and chases. usually by then my team would have already won. if not i'd sell my lothars for something better. next time please read properly b4 u comment. Very Happy

Those people must be pretty stupid if they dont know who the real you is if you use manta whilst assassinating because theres 3 of you and only one of you shooting..

Also another good way to know whos the real you if you have bruiza is to just see who does the highest crit and thats the real you.

Now im not saying its not good, but i wouldnt use it and think they dont know who you are. Use it to dodge stuns and avoid other things or kill those pesky towers. But dont use it and expect they dont know who you are.

I read it properly, and you said in lategame you use it for stats, I responded to that cause I believe its bad in every way at that point and for early and midgame purposes also gets pwnd by dagger=], not about early game. Basicly, if your not pubbing dont buy lothars=]

edit: that came out weird, what I am trying to say is that you shouldnt buy dagger after lothars ever, get dagger(or lothars) but don't get lothars and then lategame buy a dagger because they counter your first item. that makes no sense.

i remember the game where i completely outfarmed a puck mid, ruhed eaglehorn and then completed pt and mask of madness...
there happened to be a prohet on the other team....it was like now u see him, now u dont.. xD
but anyways, my sniper is very lane farm oriented..i almost never get shrapnel and i max range..which helps my mom usage btw...and i almost always get mom...i dont get manta after the nerf, i get skadi on him though, and the other classical dps stuff, buriza, butterfly..

lothars is weak. you might need it in against a heavy gank team, but in that case you were heavily outpicked and shouldn't have sniper anyways.

most pros and I, go treads, manta as the first core. from here it differs, ive seen many people go mkb, although i prefer bfly.

dont get lifesteal as your first item, your not drow, your damage is weak early.

keep in mind that headshot is a buff placer and doesnt stack with other buff placers, so if you buy crit, mkb, skadi, etc, i believe they will override headshot if both proc, although in some cases it is possible headshot overrides them, im not sure about this.

imo, manta is the best item on him. parts are relatively cheap, except ult orb, gives ms to help with his below average ms, nuke/stun dodge, etc

This is a non-friendly noob build, but it works like a charm if you know how to play sniper (for real)

Phase Boots
MoM
Crystalis
Crystalis
Crystalis
yash

moment i hear you use berserk, the lion with dagger on my team insta gibs you.

MoM without bkb is pretty bad, especially on fragile heros

3 crystalis is stupid

why not build a buriza or mkb or bfly?

i hope you know crits dont stack very well

and yes i do need a replay, theorycrafting is imperfect. There are many games showing manta first sniper, alone with either bfly or mkb or bkb is a good build.
