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.
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
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
Neutralise the Coastal Defences
Destroy Defences (3)
Neutralise Anti Air Guns
Destroy Anti-Air guns (3)
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.
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.
