Sniper Elite 5’s Mission 2: Occupied Residence kill list target is German bad guy Obersturmführer Friedrich Kümmler.
Kümmler has been lining his own pockets by stealing priceless French antiques and fencing them in Paris, and now it’s high time you made an example of him.
How to kill Friedrich Kümmler
Now you could hust head to the ballroom in the chateau and shoot him, like you have been doing with all the other Nazis, but where is all the fine in that.
We accidentally killed him by accident the first time and had to reload, as he charged out of the ballroom during a firefight and we just sniped him, not knowing who he was. But a reload was in order because we wanted to give him the death he richly deserved.
As we had already cleared out the area Friedrich was just waiting patiently to be assassinated.
You could just shoot him, it’s not difficult at all, but there is a tasty unlock of the Karabiner ’98 if you manage to finish him off by crushing him with a chandelier - and it just so happens that the ballroom has a massive one hanging from the ceiling,
Now as easy as it all sounds up to now, our German friend isn’t standing under it so we need to attract his attention and get him to wander over exactly where we wanted him to be.
Initially, having entered the ballroom at one end, the positioning for our ruse was not great, so a quick exit and re-entrance at the other end and we could see what we were doing a little better.
Now, how to get him to move to the centre of the room?
Selecting a bottle from our inventory and aiming a well placed throw under the giant light fixture did the trick. Kümmler walked over to see what was going on and all we needed to do was quickly time our shot at the point where the chandelier attaches to ceiling and the whole lot came down on top of our target.
Great fun. Now who’s next?
Alternative option: If you head upstairs in the ballroom you will find a mechanism that drops the chandalier down (for maintenence), but we preferred shooting it!
