If you've already successfully used Stealth at least 10 feet from your target, you can make one ranged attack and then immediately use Stealth again. You take a –20 penalty on your Stealth check to maintain your obscured location. Action: However, using Stealth immediately after a ranged attack (see Sniping, above) is a move action.
In initiative order (highest to lowest), combatants who started the battle aware of their opponents each take a standard or move action during the surprise round.
Does this mean that a character cannot use stealth for sniping in a surprise round, because he needs both a standard action to attack and a move action to hide, and in a surprise action he can make only one of these two?
If the answer is "He cannot", what else can he do? Can he give up the surprise round in order to snipe are remain undetected?
It is a little confusing so any help would be most welcome.
