anyone got any tips for Sniper Elite difficulty?

I'm up to Mission 5 on Elite. The checkpoint on Mission 4 after blowing up the tank took me over 2 hours and countless retries. The enemy snipers give me the most trouble as I can't seem to hit them Was hoping to be done with the game as soon as possible but it's taking way longer than expected.

This can be ignored. It was tough, but I have since beaten the game on Sniper Elite. Hopefully I'll be done with this POS game soon

I know this is late but the fact that you were rushing was most likely you're issue. Playing on the elite difficulty is very technical. You have to take your time use the advantage of the sound muffle to take guys out. When troops get alarmed it makes it way more difficult.

I am playing on Elite but personally prefer to find a nice secure spot and then make a few head shots and as much rukus as possible, let the rest all come to me like a duck shoot, then when there are no more germans calling out I move on to the next spot, sometimes I get overwhelmed but not usually.

I always just fired a shot to see where everyone would come from and then reload my checkpoint. It makes scouting a lot faster.

Sniper Elite Difficulty

The key to sniper elite difficulty is understanding the bullet drop is far greater than easy difficulty. This might be why you are having issues with hitting snipers. Enemy snipers are the most difficult aspect of this difficulty. I've found it is best to go against only 1 at a time (as two at a time can double tap you where each hit you at same time and insta-kill you). So this means going slow and clearing each sniper 1 at a time. If you've already played in easy you have a general idea where they will be at. I found it was best to find a low/medium height cover. Duck down in cover, peak up and immediately peak back down (you got to be really fast). This should get the sniper to fire his shot, than immediately after he fires, go into focus (slo-mo), peak back up and you'll have time to fire all 5-7 (depending on rifle) of your shots before he fires again.

As already stated, use loud sounds to mask your shots (even when going for snipers if possible). Don't feel obligated to kill everyone on the map. If you can get past them, then don't bother with them.

STAY IN COVER. Hop out and try to spot the sniper when they shoot you. Then get back in cover, regenerate health, then pop their head.
