Sniper Elite 5: Guide content
The most important part of this guide is a detailed walkthrough that describes the 8 main missions of the campaign and its epilogue. Each chapter of the walkthrough has been divided into smaller pages, where we separately described the main objectives of the mission, side quests and the locations of secrets. In addition, we have prepared high-quality maps of the locations visited during the game, which include, among others, places related to quests, important locations or places where you can find collectibles.
Our guide also has the basics and the FAQ chapter. There you can find, e.g. starting tips on important mechanics or combat tactics that will help you stay alive. Other pages of the guide concern, among others, developing the character and his equipment, using the best skills, or sneaking and avoiding alarms. The FAQ pages focus on, e.g. saving the game, opening safes, unlocking access to silencers, using temporary weapons or ways of destroying enemy vehicles.
The main chapters of the guide have been supplemented by a number of smaller pages, including the trophy guide with information on how to unlock 100% of the available achievements and the platinum trophy. You can also find information on system requirements, controls , accessibility options, and how long it takes to complete Sniper Elite 5.
Sniper Elite 5: Quick beginner's tips
- Save the game as often as possible. It is easy to make a mistake in the game, e.g. to miss an important shot, alert your opponents or suddenly be targeted by a sniper you didn't notice earlier. You can and should save your game on a few slots - don't rely solely on automatic saves.
- Try to get weapons with silencers. Using a silencer does not completely eliminate the risk that opponents will not hear the gunshot, but it does limit it. It is still a good reason to look for temporary weapons with silencers and to install silencers on your weapons.
- Mask your gunshots. This can happen if you are in a noisy zone, i.e. within the range of loud sounds coming from, for example, a damaged generator or a firing cannon. Shooting from such a zone will mask the sound of the shot, even if you do not use a silencer.
- Mark your enemies by using the binoculars. You should use the binoculars every time you approach a new location or reach a viewpoint. You can keep track of marked opponents and learn about unique items from their inventory (e.g. access code).
- Use focus and radar. Focus allows you to "scan" the environment so that, for example, you can see the contours of nearby enemies. The radar will also help you locate enemies - it displays small circles symbolizing their approximate location. All of this will help you reduce the risk of being detected.
- Check all locations on the map. While completing a mission, you should not focus only on the main objectives, but also look for opportunities to search optional locations. This way you can find, among others, workbenches, collectibles, unique weapons, or unlock side quests.
- Accurately determine the bullet's flight trajectory for long shots. Firing shots at enemies a few hundred meters away is problematic - you have to take into account the strength of the wind and the bullet drop. All difficulty levels, except Authentic, have a red crosshair thanks to which you will be able to make adjustments before firing a shot.
- Use additional equipment. The most important element of the hero's equipment is his sniper rifle, but do not ignore the rest of his gear. You can also use, among others, a pistol (with a silencer), bottles for distraction, grenades, mines and explosives to eliminate vehicles and groups of enemies.
