[top]Introduction

Sniper Elite V2 is a remake of Rebellion Developments' 2005 title Sniper Elite. You play as Karl Fairburne, an OSS officer who is dropped into Berlin during the final days of WWII. The German V2 rocket program is devestating Europe as the Allies tighten it's grip on the Nazi power. It's up to you to use your world-class firearm abilites to kill or capture your targets to stop the German war machine in its tracks.




[top]Tips and Strategies

This game is only as hard as you make it out to be. If you wanna go balls out and shoot everything up, that's fine, but you risk making mistakes. If you wanna be a ninja, that's fine too, but you risk wasting time and effort. Early on you'll learn to mix the two and learn to make every shot count.

If you're having trouble with a certain trophy, check the spoilers. There's a helpful video in each.


[top]Roadmap

Playthrough One - First things first, plow through the campaign on Sniper Elite difficulty.

Cleanup - Use chapter select to go back and find all those bottles, gold bars, and other misc trophies you missed.

Co-Op- You can snag a partner online in the boosting thread below, all of the Co-Op trophies are self explanatory.

Relax - You just platinum'd another game.



[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum Trophy
Win all other trophies to take your place as the world's greatest sniper

Collect all other trophies, this one is all yours.

[top]
Front and Center
Get a scoped headshot over 150m

This may seem like a chore, but there are plenty of chances to pick someone off from over 150 meters. It'll be tougher on the higher difficulties, but this is one that'll definitely happen through natural play.

Mousetrap Fuse
Use a trip mine to kill an enemy who is trying to assault your position

During the Prologue, you;ll be prompted during a little tutorial to set a trip mine for when you make your escape. After completing your kill objective, you'll back track to that same area where an enemy should trip your mine. If it isn't sucessful here, there are numerous places throughout the game to lure a an enemy into a trap.

[top]
Ear Plugs
Snipe an enemy while your rifle fire is masked by a loud sound

The earliest chance to get this is during the 3rd mission. Loud intercom messages will blare constantly, as well as different environmental happenings that will drown out the shot of your rifle.

[top]
Fuel Tank
Destroy a tank by sniping the fuel supply

The first tank you can destroy rolls in during the 2nd mission after your assassination objective. The game will hint at the small red caps on the vehicle as you target to fire at. Take a shot and watch the fireworks.

If you decide to elude that tank and sneak around it, you'll pick this trophy up during the 4th mission, where you'll have to destroy a tank to advance.

[top]
Silent but Deadly
Covertly kill 25 unaware enemies

During the beginning of the 2nd mission, a small tutorial will show you how to quietly eliminate a target when he's not paying attention. Any kill while the enemy is clueless will count toward the trophy. This will come through natural play.

[top]
Deadeye
Snipe an enemy through his eye

This is a beauty of a trophy. In order for this to count, the death animation will render the eyeballs of the enemy as the bullet passes through his head. Only then will the game count the shot toward this trophy. It isn't too difficult, even on Elite difficulty. One of those where if you try enough times, you'll get it soon enough.

Also see the video under Front and Center.

[top]
Go the Distance
Get a cumulative sniped kill distance of a marathon

A standard marathon is 42.195 kilometers, or 42,195 meters long. Every little bit of distance covered from shots will count toward this trophy, and will come naturally during gameplay. Every so often a little gauge at the bottom of the screen will show you your progress, but there's no sense in stressing over this one, it'll pop in no time.

[top]
Iron Lung
Hold your breath for a cumulative time of half an hour

When you're scoped in using your rifle, you can press R2 to hold your breath to go into Focus Mode. The time you spend in that mode holding your breath counts toward this trophy. This is accumulative over all the time you spend playing. You'll most likely get about halfway once you've played through the campaign, and after that you'll pick up the rest of the time going through the missions again to mop up the rest of the trophies. Every little bit adds up, just use what you can whenever you can.

[top]
Potato Masher
Kill 100 enemies with explosives

Glitched (Possibly).

Any explosive will do, any. Grenades, land mines, trip wires, gas tanks, etc.. If it can explode and kill something, then it'll count toward this trophy.

Having said that, the number of kills you'll have to get in order to get it to pop might be higher than 100. My trophy didn't pop until I had 138 explosive kills. So if it doesn't pop right away keep at it. It'll come up eventually if not at 100. If it comes to that, try the technique in the video guide below.

World Record
Get 506 cumulative sniper kills

506 rifle kills, easy, right? Well yeah. There are more than enough enemies in the game to snipe, I really don't see how you couldn't get this through natural gameplay. No need to farm kill, it's accumulative over single player and MP, so get out there and snipe some folks.

Show that Simo Häyhä who's boss.

[top]
Gung Ho
Snipe 100 moving targets

A moving target means an enemy caught in mid sprint. This one is a little tougher to come by, because shooting and killing running enemy is pretty hard. The shot my not be lethal and it'll just half-stun them. Just be sure to shoot a bit ahead of the enemy for your best chance of picking him off. If you play through the campaign you'll rack up a good number, and its accumulative over SP and MP, so you don't need to grind out kills. It'll come naturally.

[top]
Head Honcho
Get 100 sniped headshots

There is really no way to not rack up 100 headshots by the time you finish the campaign, but if you should come up short, the game track everything, so you can playthrough again on the easiest difficulty and murder some noggins.

Everything is tracked under Career Stats, on the games main menu.

[top]
Jungle Juice
Find and snipe all the hidden bottles throughout the game

Hidden amongst the wreckage and ruins are 37 very cleverly hidden wine bottles. Some in plain sight others...well...not so much. Just whip out your rifle and snipe each and every one.

Gold Rush
Find and retrieve all the stolen gold bars

Scattered around the game are 100 sneakily hidden bars of Nazi gold. Every mission as 10 bars placed in them except for the Prologue, and can easily be tracked on your pause screen during any particular mission.

Pass the Buck
Get a sniped ricochet headshot

This is definitely the trickiest of the specific shot trophies, because you have to not only bounce a bullet off something, but then it has to hit an enemy in the head. It is possible to, like myself, get it through general gameplay, but not everyone is that lucky. If you're having trouble, try this little trick in the mission Karlshorst Command Post provided in the spoiler below.

Double Dose
Snipe 2 people with one shot

A double kill in SE: V2 is a greater occurrence than you might think. There will be plenty of nice shots to choose from as you progress in the campaign, you'll definitely pick this up before you've beaten the game. The video below shows an example during the Schöneberg Convoy Mission.

Cooking Off
Snipe a grenade on an enemy's webbing from 100m

A lot of soldiers in the game has a grenade on their person. Just sit back and fire at their waistside and watch 'em explode. The video below shows an example during the Schöneberg Convoy Mission.

Making Every Bullet Count
Complete a level with 100% accuracy, using only rifles

This is much easier than it sounds because even if you just nick an enemy it still counts as a hit. Your best bet is to find a level you're familiar with and play through it on Cadet difficulty. As for myself I found the mission Schoneberg Convoy to be the easiest, but it may differ for each person. Just take your time and this one will come easy.

[top]
Hide and Hope
Complete a level without being shot a single time

Much like Make Every Bullet Count, this can done very easily in a very familiar mission, having the mission nohow is key. I wouldn't risk going all out and shooting up the place because even on Cadet, enemies are still a decent shot and get a hit on you if you're not paying attention. If you do wind of taking a hit, immediately pause and restart checkpoint. You can get away with this little trick and still get the trophy once you've finished the mission.

Personally The mission Brandenburg Gate was the easiest to do well in. Once you've taken out everyone at the very beginning, there are only two enemies in the building on the right and both can be taken down quietly. When you get out through the hole in the other side, just use the sounds of the explosions again to mask your shots, and make your way into the doorway across the street. Once through there, you'll drop down into the plaza with the gate in the far back. Keep on your belly, and use the drowning sounds once more to cover your shots. Stick to the right and crawl along taking out whoever is in your way. Once you get to the gate, you'll only have to hustle to the top and quickly go prone. Take your final shot and you're done.

Sniper Elite

Sniper Elite difficulty, itself, it isn't all that bad. Once you get a feel for long distance gun-play, everything in the game falls into place. The game gives you every opportunity to use everything around you to succeed, you just need a little patience at times. Though you can approach this game any way you like; stealthy or balls to the wall. It's much easier to pick one stick with it than getting yourself into trouble then trying to sneak out of it. You must beat all 11 missions on Sniper Elite mode as a single player, not co-op for this trophy.

Get off the Ground
Kill everyone in the convoy from ground level, except for Kreidl

During the final bit of the mission Schöneberg Convoy you'll have to assassinate your target Mr. Kreidl by shooting explosives you set earlier. The key here is once you're in position to take a shot, ignore the explosive charge attached to the small piece of wall, and only focus a shot on the truck once the lead car in the convoy is near. This way you won't kill anyone in the convoy you don't need to right then.

After you take your shot, Kreidl and everyone else will bail out into the street. Take Kreidl, and only Kreidl out from your perch and run down into the street. Once there, blast away at everyone else. Once the tank comes continue to kill everyone in the street and once everyone is dead, you're done.

Send the tank into the river by blowing up the bridge

During the 4th mission, you'll have to plant explosives on a bridge, then shot them from a vantage point atop a museum. Once you're there you'll spot a group of tanks beginning to cross the bridge. Just wait a moment, and allow the tanks to work their way toward the middle of the bride, then take your shot. Ka-boom.

Kilroy was Here
Make it through the tower to the winch room without being spotted

The second half of the mission Tiergarten Flak Tower takes place in an AA cannon tower which is covered with enemies. You have to make it all the way to the wench room at the end undetected. This is much easier than is sounds because if your caught or seen, you can reload your checkpoint and try again. There are a few checkpoints once you're in the tower, so ninjaing through shouldn't be a hassle.
