Step One - Cadet Playthrough
I would suggest doing your first playthrough on Cadet difficulty just to get the hang of things. It's a good opportunity to get to know the bullet drop over different distances and makes it a hell of a lot easier to get the collectibles and miscellaneous achievements. It doesn't matter if you miss collectibles and achievements on your first run as chapter select allows you to go back and clean up. Use this playthrough to enjoy and get a feel for the game.

Step Two - Collectibles/Miscellaneous Achievements
Now that you have finished your first playthrough and have a feel for the game, go back and get any achievements and/or collectibles you may have missed. Since you started the game on easy it shouldn't take long with easy enemies and chapter select. You can check your overall stats in the 'Extras Menu', that way you know how far you have to go to unlock an achievement.

Step Three - Sniper Elite Playthrough
Now that you have all the story based, collectible, and miscellaneous achievements out of the way, it's time to do a playthrough on Sniper Elite difficulty. You could have skiped the easy playthrough and gone straight for this but it might have made things more difficult for you depending on your skill. You will notice a difference on this difficulty, as you now will not be able to take as many hits before dying and the enemy AI is more accurate.

Step Four - Online Co-op
Online achievements aren't very hard just take a little time. You can get one of your buddies to help you with this or find someone to help you in the Achievement Trading/Co-Op Thread.

Sniper Elite100

This game isn't too difficult on Sniper Elite difficulty, but it can be harder in some spots. Use these tips to help you with your playthrough.

All story related achievements can be unlocked in co-op except for this one, you will need to do this solo.

Here are a few tips to help you while playing on Sniper Elite difficulty:

  • Scouting is very helpful while playing on Sniper Elite difficulty, to use your binoculars press in  and use  and  to zoom in and out. Before attacking or walking into an area scout it out for enemies or to plan your attack/route, it will make things a lot easier for you rather than just guessing where to go.
  • Rocks will really come in handy on this playthrough. When faced with a group of enemies use rocks to guide them away giving you the opportunity to advance, even to split up a group of enemies to take them out one by one.
  • Use cover ALL THE TIME, enemies will have their eye on you this playthrough and they rarely miss a shot on you. Just wait until you think your safe then pop your head up and take out one enemy at a time.
  • Set traps when sitting in an open area or a building that the enemy can access. It helps a lot because if you get an enemy behind you while you are concentrating on sniping, without traps set, they will without a doubt kill you.
  • Just take your time, rushing will not help you on this difficulty, take as much time as you need and be as stealthy as possible. Your silenced pistol will come in handy in tight spots, try for the head shot because it takes a bit to ready your gun between shots. When faced with multiple enemies use your machine gun.

Hide and Hope50

The easiest level to do this on is the Prologue due to there not being as many enemies and it's a relatively quick mission. Make sure you do this on your easy playthrough as it can be hard on a higher difficulty. Make sure to keep in cover and take your time, there is no point in rushing because it won't help you at all.
