Sniper Elite 3: Mission 1 Walkthrough

By on

In Sniper Elite 3, the main protagonist that you will play as is Karl Fairburne. A sharpshooter from America that has been sent to the North African front during the World War 2.
Obviously, as the title of the game suggests, your primary weapon will be a sniper rifle. You?ll be needing some stealth tactics for you to navigate your way throughout the game?s eight missions.
And now, let?s start with the first mission. Siege of Tobruk.

Your first task is to Get to the Ramparts, which is by the way the easiest task in the game. To complete this, you just simply run forward while hiding behind the sandbags where your objective marker can be found. Easy as that.

Then, you will be commanded to kill the artillery spotters. Quickly look down the scope of your sniper rifle and look for the first one about 50 meters ahead. Take him down by putting a bullet through his head or any vital parts of his body that you want. This will be the first time you will use the very satisfying X-Ray Kill Camera. Then take aim for the second enemy who?s about 80 meters ahead, crouching to the north at 11 o?clock. Shut him down to complete this task.

Your mission will be updated, tasking you to search for more spotters. To do this, head to the designated objective marker below you. When you reach the marker, look straight up to the north to see the last remaining spotter on a cliff which is about 110 meters away. Take him down.

With all the spotters dead, your primary objective will be shifted to destroy the heavy artillery. Move to the new marker on your screen. You will be watching a brief tutorial on how to take out vehicles, and once you are ready, take your aim at the vulnerability, using your first bullet to break through the exterior of the vehicle, and your second to completely destroy it. Great Job!

Your next task is to find a route through the mountain pass. Head to the marker on your screen until you reach a miniature sandbag that you should crouch to move through. Sneak behind the first soldier and neutralize him by using a stealth takedown. After that, move forward ?and do the same thing to the second soldier.

Head through the path to the southeast and there, you will encounter three more of them bad guys. Just like before, kill all of them one at a time using stealth takedowns. If you are unable to do the same thing in the final two, try using your Welrod or Grenade.

As soon as you kill the last soldier, your objective will be updated. You will need to destroy the Nebelwerfers or eliminate the crew, and you have just cleaned out the first four of them. The next crew and Nebelwefer is to the north. You will notice several soldiers on your radar while climbing the small rock ledge, and one of them is directly in front of you, inside the tent. Take him down silently and move forward. Outside the tent, you?ll see two more of them, but their paths should make them easy targets.
Be wary of the final guard patrolling the area. Kill him using your Welrod.

As you are exiting the tent, you will see another Nebelwerfer with soldiers guarding it. This will be a great opportunity to use your grenade to score a triple kill. When they are down, you have cleared 2 of the 4 Nebelwerfers crew.

For the next crew, head east until you find a guard tower. Be careful with your approach because there could be a guard looking in your direction as you exit the path. You can take him down using your Welrod, but his buddies might hear you. Either way, the other path to the right is not much better, so get back to work and clear out three soldiers to clear the third Nebelwerfer crew.


Now, for the final crew, go south from the third one. You will see one guard near the tent, right beside the path?s exit. You can easily kill him using a stealth take down. After you?re done dealing with him, track the soldier around the tent and stab him, which will leave two more closest to the artillery itself. These two sitting ducks is a perfect target for a well-placed grenade.

With all Nebelwerfers down, your next task is to survey the Desert beyond the Mountain Pass. This is your final objective of the mission. Just follow the marker into the north to get things done. This will unlock The Gazala Gallop, an achievement for completing the mission.
