Sir Francis T. Woolridge (born 21 March, 1909 in Sheffield, England), a.k.a the Sniper or Duke is a descendant from a noble family. In 1936, he won a gold medal in shooting in the Berlin Olympics. In 1937 he enlisted in the army and between 1937 and 1939, he was stationed in India, where he was recognised as a great marksman. In 1940 he joined the Commandos. He was awarded a military medal when he killed the Commandant of the German garrison in Narvik with a single shot from a distance of more than a mile. He is considered one of the best snipers in the world.

The Sniper is very cool and calculating but very stand-offish with his other companions. He is an expert marksman who is thereby extremely effective in situations requiring stealth or long range kills.

The Sniper has a limited amount of sniper rounds per level and so will very rarely waste a bullet. His missions usually involve clearing the path of enemies for his colleagues from a distance. He will then stand behind debris or other objects which provide shelter while he provides cover for the other Commando troops. He can also climb poles and position himself to Snipe at the enemy. The Sniper is the team's medic if the Driver is not on the mission.
