The first of a two-part video series about sniper tactics in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has been released by developer CI Games.
The video below will teach players about Scope Calibration to compensate for bullet drop, positioning to ensure that players remain aware of their surroundings, and how to effectively use the recon drone. Find out more below:
Check the distance to your target and set the elevation on your scope accordingly to compensate for bullet drop. Check the wind indicator as well as the wind influences whether the bullet will drift to the left or right. When all is set, exhale and take the shot.
Take advantage of Jon’s surroundings to maximize his effectiveness in an area. Use the environment to reduce weapon sway while aiming. Crouching and lying down also reduces weapon sway. Sniper bullets are strong and can penetrate multiple targets if lined up correctly, and special sniper bullets can even penetrate walls and other barriers.
Recon is critical to planning your mission prior to infiltration of an area. The drone can locate and mark enemies, sabotage objects and enemy devices. A simple flyover of the area can expose weak points in the enemy encampment allowing Jon to take out his enemies with deadly precision.
In the game, players step into the shoes of Jonathan North, an American Marine dropped into the Republic of Georgia to accomplish a highly classified Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) mission. However, he must also complete his own personal mission of finding his kidnapped brother.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 launches April 4th, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
