Introduction:
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is a military style first person shooter that features sniping action set in three different terrain types: urban, jungle, and mountain. 


Step 1: Single player (Casual, Medium & Expert):
All achievement difficulties are stackable. You can start your campaign on expert from the start, but it is up to the player to choose what difficulty they would prefer to start on.

Casual playthrough:
Recommended difficulty to start the game is casual. You will be able to pick the majority of the campaign and miscellaneous achievements without much trouble. You will get used to the games controls and learn the levels through the casual playthrough as well.

Expert playthrough:
You can start the game on expert from the beginning as expert isn't much of a difference from casual. Main thing is, you do not get 'where the bullet will land' assist (red circle when you zoom in). Listen to what your spotter tells you if you don't want to be made.

Step 2: Secrets (a.k.a Collectibles):
There are a total of 40 secrets that can be found in the game, with four available to be found on each of the 10 missions. Some of these are not to hidden, but you might miss one or two throughout your playthrough. It is recommended following a secret location guide as you play. This will help minimize your playthrough time and not miss any. Please see "In Search of Enlightenment" for exact secret locations.

Step 3: Multiplayer:
**WARNING: It looks like if you use DLC weapons online to get kills, these kills will not count to your stats. So please stay away from DLC weapons until we get more information.

All multiplayer achievements can be earned in private matches. With that being said, find a partner to help you out. Set up a private match with the following settings: 
 

  • Game mode: Team Deathmatch
  • Map: Resort
  • Minimum players to start: 1
  • Round time: 10 minutes
  • Score limit: 500
  • Friendly fire: No
  • Respawn time: 0

With these settings you will be able to obtain all multiplayer achievements within about 2-3 hours. Shouldn't take you any longer than that. Refer to the Achievement Trading Thread to find people to play with.

 

DLC: Siberian Strike

Introduction:
Siberian Strike is the first single-player DLC for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. It can either be downloaded free of charge if you have a code provided in the Bulletproof Steelbook Edition (if you managed to get one) or with 800 MS Points on the marketplace.

Walkthrough:
There are three missions, which take around an hour to complete on any difficulty. The quickest and most efficient way to finish off this DLC would be to simply play through it at whichever difficulty suits you, while making sure to sneak through the underground storehouse undetected (refer to "Shadow Man") and grab all secrets along the way (refer to "Getting Tail in Siberia"). By clicking HERE, you will be taken to the second post of a video guide thread for this DLC's collectables and "Shadow Man." Videos brought to you by NeedToAchieve.

All Secret Location Guide

All Secret Location Video Guide

Act I - Hula Girl Statue

 

Act II - Film Reel

Act III - Buddha Statue

Hazardous Materials25
Killed three or more enemies by shooting a grenade (7) 

This can be done in Act 1 mission 2. You will get to a point where you will have to use stealth to get past the enemies after walking through a cave to reach the observation tower. Shoot the sniper patrolling the roof top so you can sneak past the enemies. Crouch your way past the enemies. You will then reach a point where you will shoot am enemy to cause a distraction. This will make three enemies run over to investigate. One of the soldier will be carrying a grenade; shoot the grenade when told and it will take out the three enemies around him.

 

Death's Scythe30
Took 50 headshots in single player 

This will come with natural progression. Continue playing the campaign and try to always aim at the head. Take your time and do not rush to take the shot. Press  down to hold your breath.

To check your progress and kills, from the main menu select extras and personal stats.

Nerves Of Steel30
Achieved 100% accuracy in any single player mission (8) 

To achieve 100% accuracy you cannot miss a shot during an entire mission. Probably the easiest mission to complete this in would be Act 1 Mission 3. There are a total of 41 enemies which can easily be killed with your sniper or stealth kills. Just take your time and aim carefully.

Another mission this can be obtained in no time would be Act 2 Mission 1. There are a total of 20 enemies. You will only need to shoot 11 of them. Later in this mission you will destroy two AA gunners and run into an underground tunnel. Run into the shed to hide from the patrol. As soon as you see the last enemy walk by, quickly run straight and then make a right and keep running ending the mission.

If you miss a shot, you can restart from last checkpoint.

Balls Of Steel20
Completed any single player mission without using med kits, but taking damage 

This can be done in any mission but is easier to do in the first few levels of the game since they are fairly short. To take damage, simply either fail to stealth kill and enemy or raise the alarms. The enemies will engage and shoot you. Once you've been hit, quickly find cover and kill the enemies in the area. Continue through the level without using a med kit or dying, as dying makes you come back with full health.

Say Hello To My Little Friend10
Killed 30 enemies using your sidearm (1) 

This will come with natural progression. Continue playing the campaign using your sidearm as much as possible. Your sidearm is equipped with a suppressor so don't be afraid to use it and its usually a 1-2 hit kill. I'd recommend using your sidearm when you are taking out one to two people in an area or when you are in close range of the enemies.

To check your progress and kills, from the main menu select extras and personal stats.

Psst, Don't Look Behind You20
Killed 15 enemies with a stealth kill 

This will come with natural progression. To perform a stealth kill, you will need to get close behind the enemy and press down on the . I recommend performing stealth kills when there are one or two enemies around. 

To check your progress and kills, from the main menu select extras and personal stats. 

Kill With Still10
Killed 50 enemies while holding your breath 

This will come with natural progression. Continue playing through the campaign and when you are zoomed in, hold down the . You will hold your breath and have a control over your shot.

To check your progress and kills, from the main menu select extras and personal stats.

Distance Matters Not20
Killed 20 enemies from a distance of 600m or greater 

This will come through natural progression. To see how far you are from an enemy in meters, while zoomed it on the top left of your scope it will show you how far that enemy is from you. If you fall short by a few meters trying moving further back until your target is in the 600m+ range.

Fisher King10
Killed 25 enemies using thermal or night vision goggles (1) 

This will come through natural progression. Some levels will require you to use your thermal or night vision goggles to see better at night or to make target more visible in different terrains. To use your thermal night vision press . Thermal goggles are available from the first mission.

Worlds Apart20
Took a successful shot from a distance of 1 km or greater 

The earliest you can get a shot from a distance of 1 km (1000m) is in Act 1 mission 2. You will come to a part where you will be given a .50 cal to clear out some targets so your team can move forward. At one point you will be asked to take out two snipers, one to the far right (1395m) and to the bottom left (1292m). Shoot any of these snipers and the achievement is yours. Look at the top left of your scope while zoomed in to see how many km/meters away the target is.

 

Bullets Can't Hurt Me25
Completed any act without using medkits 

You can die and restart checkpoints as many times as you would like. Just DO NOT use med kits at any point. This is better done in Act 1.

I Never Bleed75
Completed the Campaign using max one medkit per mission (13) 

This will be much easier obtaining this on casual difficulty. Even though you will stay a fair enough of damage, you will still be able to make it through the missions with your remaining health. If you are very low on health, quick die or restart last checkpoint. You will come back with full health. If you do use a med kit, remember to just use it once within that mission. There should actually be no reason for you to ever use a med kit on casual, unless you don't use stealth and just run in to battle with your pistol. Take your time with your shots and you will get through all missions without needing to use a med kit.

Getting Tail in Siberia50
Collected all secrets in Siberian Strike campaign 

There are a total of 12 secrets in the Siberian Strike campaign, with four being in each of the three missions. The secrets in this DLC are small Russian Matryoshka dolls. Below is a text guide to finding them all. You can see what level(s) you are missing secrets in by going to Extras, Secrets, Siberian Strike, and then choosing the mission you need. All locations are in order.

Operation "Siberian Strike"
1. Near the end of the cave system with all the railings and stairs, you will see a small building near the exit to the cave. Go in the front door, and turn to your right. You will see the doll lying on a box covered in a green tarp.

2. After exiting the lab area after interrogating the first guy, you will open a door and see another small building directly in front of you in the distance. Go straight, jump over the box and railing, go through the grass and into the back door of the building. Turn left and you will see two microscopes. Behind the second one on the left rests the doll.

3. Once you have crossed over the train, you will need to cross a large open area with many boxes. In the distance you will see a large antenna. To the left of the large antenna is a smaller building. Go inside this building and you will find the doll beside a radio in the back left corner of the room.

4. The final doll on the first level will be after a cut-scene where you look at photographs on the floor and listen to an audio recording. Once the cut-scene ends, deal with the enemy sniper and look around for a couch. To the left of the couch will be the doll.

It Takes Two
1. After providing over watch for Diaz, you will need to begin traveling across rooftops and killing the backup soldiers. At the start of this segment, keep right until you reach a staircase which goes downwards and left. You will see the doll in a cardboard box directly in front of you.

2. Keep going forward after you pick up the first one. You will see another staircase leading down to the left; this set of stairs is a metal staircase. Directly across from the stairs is an upper section of the roof which is covered in ice. Go down the stairs, across this small area, and up the next staircase. Take a right, and look where the ice was. The doll is sitting near the corner of the iced over section.

3. A little ways down the rooftops, Diaz will ask for help killing enemy snipers who have pinned him down. Once they're all dead, turn around and look for an open doorway with an orange tarp being blown in the wind over the doorway. Inside and to the left is the doll on top of an overturned couch.

4. This one is tricky to spot. After riding the cable across to the other rooftop, you will enter inside the building and go down some stairs. One enemy will come from the left once you reach the bottom of the stairs. After you turn the corner of the stairs, you will see a generator with green baggage piled around it. Look up and to the right if you are facing the generator. The doll will be resting on an electrical box in the dark (big thanks to Bar6arian over at TA for pointing this one out for me).

Last Rites
1. A little ways into the mission you will reach a pretty dark underground area. The first group of enemies you kill will be where the doll is. There will be a staircase leading down into a pit-like area with a bag, a box, and a fireplace where one soldier is. The doll is on the table.

2. After crossing the freeway and sliding down the slope, kill the soldiers here and then look for the small building on the right. Go inside the front door and look left. The doll will be on a table next to some files in the back of the room. 

3. If you keep going after getting the second secret, a couple of helicopters will fly over and you will be at a very large base. In the back of this base you will see a rather long building with a tower. First head up to the tower you can get into to your left before the base and stealth kill the sniper here. Take out everyone in the base and once it's clear enough, head towards the large building. It's okay if you set off an alarm. Go up the central staircase and go left. You will now see a ramp leading down to the left and a walkway alongside the building to the right. Follow the walkway to the right all the way to the end of the walkway. In the corner at the end of this walkway you will find the doll on top of some boxes.

4. As you are escaping the ship before it explodes, eventually along the way Cole will say "clock's ticking, gotta move double time!" When he says that, you should be going up a ramp. At the top of the ramp, instead of going right, go left. Keep going along this walkway and then look left. You will see a snow-covered beam stretching across the span of the ship's hull. Walk along this beam and at the end of it, you will find the final doll. You can then continue exiting the ship by going left from the doll.

Secret Achievements
Easy Rider30
Got the train moving again 

Story related and cannot be missed. This will unlock in the later half of the first mission, 'Operation Siberian Strike.' The achievement unlocks after watching the cut-scene where you are in the train.

Taste of Your Own Medicine20
Completed the first interrogation 

Story related and cannot be missed. This will unlock near the beginning of the first mission 'Operation Siberian Strike' after watching the cut-scene of this first interrogation.

Learning To Fly20
Completed the second interrogation 

Story related and cannot be missed. This takes place right at the beginning of the second mission, 'It Takes Two,' after killing one soldier. The achievement unlocks after watching the cut-scene where you are climbing up after falling.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words20
Completed the third interrogation 

Story related and cannot be missed. You will obtain the last interrogation achievement after watching the cut-scene after clearing the base and going through the door in the last level, 'Last Rites.'

Shadow Man50
Sneaked through the underground storehouse undetected 

This is the hardest achievement in this DLC, but it's not actually hard AT ALL. A couple side-notes:


  • If you alert anyone, immediately press  and load last checkpoint.
  • It is HIGHLY recommended to use thermal vision during this segment by pressing .

In the third mission, 'Last Rites,' you will come to a dark underground area. The first set of enemies will include two men as you exit a door. Let them pass and then move up behind them. One will stop by a fire and the other will stop at the stairs. In the distance to the right you will see one other soldier. Let the one at the stairs go down the stairs and then stealth kill the one by the fire. Now shoot the one to the right as he is walking away. Now look down and kill the one at the table (there is also a secret here). Continue forward until you come to the next room.

In this room there are two enemies to the far left at a door, but you can just sneak past them. Keep to the right side of this area and go right past them and then further down the right side you will see a part of a railing that is missing along with a series of pipes you can walk across. Quickly move across these pipes and go around behind them. Turn around and watch the stairs that you just went past. You will see three soldiers walk up them and away from you. Once all three are gone, move forward down the pipes.

There are two enemies left until you are home free. Kill the one on the walkway above once he is to the far left first. Now kill the one below you at the fire. Once they are dead, you can run for it. Go up the stairs and move towards the objective marker. The achievement will unlock as soon as you drop down outside.
