Sniper Elite 5


Paul McNally

The Atlantic Wall objectives

While definitely serving as a tutorial right at the beginning, The Atlantic Wall turns into a great story-driven mission that is fun to play, and also lets you get in lots of sniping action along the way. The mission itself could easily take a couple of hours if you play it properly and not just charge through.

So let’s have a look at the tasks you will be set in Mission one of the new Sniper Elite 5.

A three star Mission Complete screen will greet you when you have done your job correctly.


Hitler’s Atlantic Wall defences will pose a real threat to any landing party. Punching a hole in the Atlantic Wall makes assault easier.

Option A: Destroy the Pillars (2)
Option B: Sabotage the Radar’s power source

You can either destroy the support pillars or short circuit the entire radar array.

Optional objectives

Optional objectives will only appear to you when you are close to the area.

Destroy the Gun Battery

Option A: Sabotage the power source
Option B: Send a sabotaged shell into the gun

Adding some TNT to one of these shells will cause the gun to explode.

Neutralise the Coastal Defences

Destroy Defences (3)

One of three guns protecting Hitler’s coastline that needs to be destroyed.

Neutralise Anti Air Guns

Destroy Anti-Air guns (3)

A destroyed AA gun that will cause no further problems for our boys in the sky.

Kill List

Steffen Beckendorf is the first on your Kill List in Sniper Elite 5

Find and kill Steffen Beckendorf


Destroy gunboat from beach
This is not listed in the objectives, however it is speeding about in the bay and just asking for it, plus it will also get you some extra XP.

How to destroy a boat in Sniper Elite 5

To destroy the gunboat you need to hit the fuel tanks at the rear. You can pick them off with your scope but there are also better weapons to use that will cause more damage.

Hitting a gunboat’s weak points will cause it to explode.

You can find a couple of Panzerfaust rocket launchers at the end of the beack (see Stone Eagle 3) or you will find an anti-tank weapon upstairs in the Pharmacie on the beach front.

If you get too close to the waterline the boat will return heavy fire on your position so try and shoot from cover.
