I'm playing the first Mass Effect. I played it before but didn't complete it, and am going through it again. I enjoy playing games stealthily and attacking from distance if it's an option, so I chose my character to do that (I can't remember the name of it in the game). I specifically and purposely chose that, yet I am not at all able to upgrade his talent points for sniper; I can upgrade other things, but sniper is 1 of the few I can't upgrade.

Can anyone help me with it?

  • You probably chose the wrong class. – Frank May 8 '13 at 16:24
  • I read through them and specifically chose the one that was about stealth and attacking from a distance. – Francis May 8 '13 at 16:32

    Only as an Infiltrator or Soldier can you upgrade Sniper Rifle (unless you have unlocked the ability to add Sniper Rifle as a bonus skill). – ChargingPun May 8 '13 at 16:44

    As Infiltrator you have to point several points into pistol before you can put points into sniper if I remember correctly. – AdamP May 8 '13 at 17:01

    @AdamP That's basically the answer, so maybe you should post an answer, not just a comment. – Kareen May 8 '13 at 17:39

As Infiltrator you have to put 5 points into pistol before you can put points into snipers.

This is true for several Infiltrator talents. Namely:

  • Snipers → Unlocked at Pistols 5
  • Fitness → Unlocked at Tactical Armor 6
  • Damping → Unlocked at Electronics 4
  • First Aid → Unlocked at Decryption 7

Here is a link to the Infiltrator wiki if you have any further questions about how the skills work.
