I am pretty sure that you do. Just give them silencers.

Sniper Rifles count as having Silencers.

Thanks Wargamer, it doent really make sense if they don't does it?

The closest I can find is in the 3rd edition rulebook where Sniper weaponry was not counted for raising the alarm with sentries. The Sentry rule isn't used anymore, sniper weaponry doesn't mention it, and there is very little metnion of shooting at all in the Kill-team section.

Can somebody find the page ref where it says that shooting affects Klaxons at all? I've read back and forth, and had nothing more than the silencer reference.
Do it for KJ
