You don't take bolt cutters and crowbar on a mission. Instead, you have to find them while exploring the maps. They can be, for example, near workbenches or in various locations guarded by enemies. In order to find them, you can activate focus (a mode similar to scanning the area).

Each map has several bolt cutters and crowbars, so you don't have to search for one specific item. The gadgets are indestructible and one copy of each of them will last until the end of the mission (in the next stage you have to look for them again).

Bolt cutters can be used to cut padlocks to, for example - Sniper Elite 5: Bolt cutters and crowbar - how to get and where to use? - FAQ - Sniper Elite 5 Guide, Walkthrough

Bolt cutters can be used to cut padlocks to, for example:

  1. Opening a door locked with a padlock - example in picture 1.
  2. Opening a container locked with a padlock - example in picture 2.

In both cases, bolt cutters are a faster alternative for using a slower lockpick (the lockpick is always in Karl's inventory). The disadvantage of this method is that cutting a padlock creates noise so you need to make sure that there are no enemies in the area.

Main use for crowbar

The crowbar is useful in situations where you need to lift something. You can use it, e.g. to open sealed containers (example in picture 1) or to remove boards blocking the passage (example in picture 2).

As in the case of bolt cutters, you have to take into account that the crowbar creates noise that can alert nearby enemies. Always make sure no one is in the immediate vicinity.
