Deadeye Shot (Ex): Riflemen are trained to be able to strike their enemies from unexpected angles even in the chaos of a melee. Deadeye Shot acts like Sneak Attack, but only works with ranged weapons. A Rifleman can only use Deadeye Shot at ranges up to 45 ft, while either the target is denied a Dexterity bonus to AC or the Rifleman is considered to be flanking his target. Feats that apply to Sneak Attack apply to Deadeye Shot similarly. Deadeye Shot can be used to qualify for classes that require Sneak Attack, and any improvements to Sneak Attack that this class would gain are instead granted to Deadeye Shot. A Rifleman with levels as a Rogue may apply damage from both Sneak Attack and Deadeye Shot. As with a Sneak Attack, the extra damage dealt by Deadeye Shot is not multiplied on a critical hit.
Flash of Insight (Ps): A Rifleman's natural gift at locating targets improves his ability to notice other things as well. Starting at 4th level, he adds 1/2 his class level to Spot, Search, and Listen checks. As a psi-like ability, this is negated by effects that dispel or nullify psionics, but is always active, and never provokes attacks of opportunity.
Headshot (Ex): Starting at 5th level, Riflemen become able to aim their ranged attacks at their enemies' weak points. Once a day, he may expend his use of this ability as a swift action to make his next attack, if successful, an automatic critical hit. He doesn't add his base attack bonus to this roll. If this attack misses, the use of the ability is expended without effect. The Rifleman gains an additional use of this ability every 5 levels afterward. This ability cannot be used in conjunction with a Sneak Attack, Deadeye Shot, or similar ability.
Covering Fire (Ex): Starting from 12th level, Riflemen can expend a move action to do nothing. Upon doing so, and until their next turn, they threaten attacks of opportunity with their ranged weapon out to 30 ft.
Shootout (Ex): A Rifleman's reflexes and skill increase his ability to fight effectively with his ranged weapon even at close quarters. Starting at 18th level, he no longer provokes attacks of opportunity for using ranged weapons in melee.
Unpredictable (Ex): At 20th level, the Rifleman becomes able to switch targets on the fly. Making a Bluff check to feint becomes a swift action. If he could do this already, he becomes able to make a Bluff check to feint as a free action.
