Sniper Elite 5 is out now and it puts you in the shoes of Karl Fairburne a one-man army behind enemy lines taking on the Nazis. If you are new to the franchise then you will find yourself making costly mistakes and getting frustrated quickly. In this Sniper Elite 5 beginner’s guide, we are going to give you some tips and tricks that will help you get started.
Sniper Elite 5 Tips And Tricks
The following are some of the tips and tricks that we recommend you keep in mind when playing Sniper Elite 5:
Stick To Sharpshooter Difficulty
The Sharpshooter difficulty setting is ideal to get a feel of what the game has to offer. Anything below this is going to be too easy and anything above this is going to be rather challenging. You can always change the difficulty settings later on once you get used to the mechanics and know how things work in Sniper Elite 5.
Practice Makes Perfect
While you can turn off gravity and wind in order to get more accurate sniper shots, we recommend leaving these settings on and practicing your shots. These just add to the immersion and give you a sense of accomplishment when you land the perfect shot.
If you have a hard time figuring things out then you can always turn these off later on.
Mix Stealth And Action
While the name of the game is Sniper Elite, you should not stick to just sniping. There are multiple different approaches that you can take in this game and you should not be afraid to mix things up when needed.
Explore And Scout Ahead
While you can get right into the action, you have your binoculars with you for a reason. We recommend checking out the map and scouting the area before engaging enemies in order to plan your moves.
Doing this will allow you to learn about enemy patterns and patrols. Making it easier for you to plan your moves and judge what you should do each step of the way. You can use your binoculars to tag enemies, vehicles, and more in the game.
Use The Environment To Your Advantage
You can use the environment to your advantage and this is something that we recommend you do. You can hide in the tall grass and shoot at explosives to kill a group of enemies.
Furthermore, you can shoot spotlights and electrocute operators. You can also try booby-trapping dead bodies with grenades.
On lower difficulty settings, you can save your progress as often as you like. We recommend saving often so that you can quickly go back and do things differently in case something goes wrong.
Let Invaders Come To You
If you have invasions enabled and are being invaded by other players then we recommend sticking in place and letting them come to you. This is going to give you the element of surprise and the upper hand in most situations.
You can also invade other players and explore levels without being bothered by enemies on the map. While you can get your ass handed to you by leaving invasions on, we recommend trying them out at least once.
Use Nazi Weapons
You can pick up Nazi guns once you have killed a Nazi soldier. We recommend using the weapon that you get. This can be rather fun. You cannot stow the weapon and it has limited ammo but the bullets can deal a lot of damage.
Hide Your Kills
As you start piling up bodies, enemies are going to take notice and will be alerted. You do not want that to happen. That is why we recommend hiding dead bodies in order to avoid attracting any attention.
These are some tips and tricks that should help you out in Sniper Elite 5. Have Fun!
