Sniper Elite 4
Sniper Elite 4 is a third-person tactical stealth shooter and a sequel to the 2014 Sniper Elite III. Similar to previous games in the series, an X-Ray kill cam is activated whenever the player fires at an enemy with a sniper rifle, displaying the bullet’s damage to the target’s bones and internal organs. The game has included shrapnel, melee, and stealth kills, an improved enemy AI system, and larger maps which allow more open-ended gameplay.
Following the events in 1943 Italy in Sniper Elite III, SOE sniper Karl Fairburne is sent to the island of San Celini to assassinate General Tobias Schmidt and several key officers who are building a new Nazi weapon.
Sniper Elite 4 received generally positive reviews with an average score of 78%, praised for its mechanics, co-op multiplayer function, and overall fun.
This is a high 2-star rating, only because the Authentic difficulty playthrough can be quite challenging. However, there are far less online trophies to worry about, compared to the previous installment. At least two playthroughs are required for the campaign, one on Authentic difficulty which is the hardest mode. There are a number of collectibles to find, kill-related trophies to grind for, and several online co-op trophies to acquire. Overall, the road to the Platinum is no cakewalk, but certainly doable.
Expect around 30-35 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.
Start by selecting either Cadet or Marksman mode, which is Easy or Normal, and play through the 8 story missions, as well as the 2 Overwatch missions, until you’ve completed the campaign. During this run, it’s a good idea to keep a look out for collectibles, which come in the form of Last Letters, Letters from Home, and Letters to Home for The Collector trophy, sniper reports for the Greatest Hits trophy, and stone eagles to shoot for the A Bird In The Hand trophy. There are also some kill-related trophies you can be working on during your first playthrough, to reduce the amount of grinding required later. Be sure to check out the Sniper Elite 4 trophy guide links under our Links tab as well as the Collectible Location guides.
After you’ve completed the campaign, we recommend jumping into your Authentic mode playthrough, which is the hardest mode in the game, while the missions are still fresh in your mind. However, not only do you need to complete Authentic mode for the Are You Insane trophy, but do so without making any manual saves for The Best Of The Best Of The Best trophy. This means having to rely on the automatic checkpoint saves. Also, playing on Authentic mode means there is no aim assist or mini-map, and you will need to take into effect the wind resistance. Also, the enemies can take more damage, while the player-character takes less. If you have someone to play this in co-op, we recommend this as your partner can revive you.
Next, it’s time to mop-up the remaining single player trophies. This will probably include all those kill-related trophies, and finding any missing collectibles. Again, check out the Sniper Elite 4 trophy guide links under the Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.
Last, it’s time to finish those online and co-op related trophies. Both multiplayer trophies can be done in a private match, if you have a boosting partner.
