Designated Marksman

A marksman, or sharpshooter, is a person who is skilled in precision shooting, using projectile weapons, such as with a rifle but most commonly with a designated marksman rifle and/or a sniper rifle, to shoot at long range targets.

The main difference between a marksman and a normal sniper is that a marksman is usually considered an organic part of a fireteam of soldiers, whereas regular snipers tend to work alone or with other snipers.
