Kinessa is a Damage Class Champion in Paladins. Seriously is another sniper when there are already like 6 so have fun. == Lore == As a young recruit in the elite Sentinels unit, Kinessa took to her sniper lessons with an eagerness and enthusiasm that surprised her mentors. Frustrated by the rigors of military life, she left before she could complete her training and struck out on her own. As the Realm descended into chaos and war, vigilante bounty contracts were plentiful, earning her all the fame and fortune she'd lacked while in the service of the Magistrate. She refuses to pick a side in the conflict, though, because it's much more profitable to contract with both than commit to either.

== Tips == ;Sniper Rifle :This mode is great when your opponent is at very low health. :Generally, the carbine mode is reserved for close quarter's combat. ;Sniper Mode :Sniper Mode improves your accuracy greatly. :When shooting at targets from afar, try to "aim ahead" of where your target is moving. :Since you tunnel vision when using Sniper Mode, you become the perfect target for flankers like Skye and Androxus. :Never stay in a single spot when sniping movement around every 3-4 shots or so, or else you will be very predictable. ;Octopressor :Octopressor can be used as an alarm. When you see one of your octopresors going off, it is a sign to move. ;Transporter :Transporter is mainly used 2 ways. You can reach hard to reach places, or escape from a fight. ;Headhunter :Headhunter is only useful if you are extremely accurate, or if the enemies are slowed. Try pairing this with Convergence. == Customization == === Body Skins === Common * Hunter * Sharpshooter Rare * Cutthroat * Viking Epic * Nova Strike === Accessories === Common * Hunter * Sharpshooter Rare * Cutthroat * Viking Epic * Nova Strike === Weapon Skins === Common * Sharpshooter Rare Epic * Nova Strike ==Cards== ===Legendary===
