Sniper Elite 5 lets you gain combat, equipment, and body skills. This guide page compiles the most useful abilities to unlock quickly.

Last update: Tuesday, May 24, 2022

While playing Sniper Elite 5, you earn skill points that you can spend on unlocking new skills. Our guide suggests the best skills from Combat, Equipment and Body trees.

On the Character progression and equipment page, you will find more detailed information, e.g. about leveling up, acquiring skill points and unlocking better equipment.

Recommended skills - Body

The body is the third skill tree and it contains several very important abilities. Here is a list of recommended Body skills to unlock:

Maintain Focus - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Maintain Focus - cost: 1 skill point. This is a central skill, unlocking it will allow you to buy the next ones. After acquiring this skill, you will be able to keep focus activated for a longer period of time (its most important function is marking enemies).

Cardio - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Cardio - cost: 1 skill point. This skill reduces heart rate jumps caused by running. This will come in handy especially in those missions where you have to travel a lot between different shooting spots.

Deep Breath - cost: 2 skill points - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Deep Breath - cost: 2 skill points. This ability works by reducing the jumps in heart rate caused by holding the air after you breathe in. This will make it easier for you to "aim longer" in situations where, for example, you need to shoot precisely at a very distant or moving enemy.

Focus Range - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Focus Range - cost: 1 skill point. You can increase the range of the focus, i.e. spot enemies and unique items from a greater distance. This is a must-buy if you like to activate focus frequently.

Speedy Recovery - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Speedy Recovery - cost: 1 skill point. You can purchase this skill as a backup in case of sudden and unexpected injuries. It can speed up the process of regenerating lost health. You can also check out the skills from the Health Boost group that extend the health bar.

Recommended skills - Equipment

Equipment is the second skill tree and it also contains some important abilities. Here is a list of recommended unlockable Equipment skills:

Scavenge Weapon Ammo - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Scavenge Weapon Ammo - cost: 1 skill point. This is a central skill, unlocking it will allow you to buy the next ones. This ability allows you to obtain ammunition from found (temporary) weapons by holding down the appropriate button. This can be a good way to make ammo restocking easier.

Extra Item Slot 1 - Cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Extra Item Slot 1 - Cost: 1 skill point. While preparing for the mission, your character can use an additional equipment slot, i.e. take more things with him. You can also purchase Extra Item Slot 2 later in the game.

Carry More Traps - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Carry More Traps - cost: 1 skill point. Purchasing this skill will allow you to carry more mines. This can be very useful if you like to use them to set traps for vehicles and groups of enemies. The Carry More Explosives ability has a similar effect, but it applies to TNT.

Rifle Special Ammo - cost: 2 skill points - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Rifle Special Ammo - cost: 2 skill points. Unlocking this skill will allow you to take more special ammunition with you. Additional types of ammunition can be useful, among others, to attack armored enemies more effectively or to cause bleeding.

Recommended skills - Combat

Combat is the first skill category, and is by far the least useful assuming you'll be sneaking a lot and avoiding direct confrontation altogether. Later in the game you can purchase:

Back in the Fight - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Back in the Fight - cost: 1 skill point. This is a central skill, unlocking it will allow you to buy the next ones. It allows you to "revive" yourself with the first aid kit when the enemy manages to knock you down.

Triangulation - cost: 1 skill point - Sniper Elite 5: Best skills - list - Basics - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Triangulation - cost: 1 skill point. This ability allows you to mark enemies that deal damage to the hero through the scope. This may allow you to locate the enemy that is a threat to you faster and get rid of him before he damages you or kill.
