    - Advertisement -

    Return to the world of Sniping in France. The Year is 1944 and the Normandy landing is about to begin, however, a dark plot is underway in the French Countryside that could turn the tide of the War in the German’s Favour.

    The Fifth instalment in the Sniper Elite Series still follows the exploits of Karl Fairburne, this time Karl must go to France to aid the resistance.

    Roadmap:

    Step 1: They call me Fairburn, Karl Fairburne
    During this stage, you will need to complete the game in Authentic. It is really not all that tough and you can do it with a partner if you feel you need to have some backup. Overall it shouldn’t take more than about 6 hours even though you are going in blind.

    Step 2: The War isn’t over yet
    Within this stage, you will be cleaning up the final things that you have missed while working through the campaign in Authentic and progressing the farm of your Weapon Mastery. While you are working on your Weapon Masteries you will want to have Axis Invasion turned on, this will allow you to be invaded by other players and let you get Enemy at the Gates.

    During this step you’ll earn these trophies:

    Enemy at the Gates
    Strategist
    Master of Pistols
    Master of Secondaries
    Master of Rifles
    Gunslinger
    Skirmisher

    Road Rage
    Can’t Outrun A Bullet
    Just a Flesh Wound
    Master-at-arms
    The Long Game

    Step 3: A Sniper’s Work is Never Done!
    This final stage of the game will see you progressing towards completing your Weapon Masteries and completing the online portion of the game. By this point, your Masteries should be nearly done and you should have a few things left in order to complete each of the 3 categories. Once you have done them it is an idea to attack the only portion of the game, needless to say, you probably got an Axis Invasion while cleaning up, if not you can combine that in this section although it is likely to be a boring wait.

    During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:

    Opposing Forces
    Enemy at the Gates
    Fields of Glory
    Master of Pistols
    Master of Secondaries
    Master of Rifles
    Master-at-arms
    Shoot for the Moon

    Although it is advised to keep with the Classic Control Scheme it is best to pick the control layout that best suits you, and your playstyle.

    TIPS:

    • Authentic Difficulty is not that hard
    • You can save anywhere, as long as you are not in combat. You can even save with a coop partner.
    • The Weapon Masteries are a long set of trophies, not just because of the conditions, but because of unlocking the weapons.
    • There is a place to farm almost all kill trophies, please refer to the trophy you require.
    • Playing with a coop partner can be helpful as well as a hindrance, pick a partner carefully!
    • Trying to get a friend to be an invader is more difficult than you would think
    • Do not underestimate other players
    • Only enable Invasion Mode if you are happy to be invaded by another player. This is highly not recommended for Authentic Difficulty, with an invader, Authentic becomes that much harder.
    • You can track all the trophies using the Medals

    MISSABLE

    This is for completing Mission 9: Loose Ends.

    With operation Kraken finally stopped only 1 loose end remains, Möller! This final mission is just a sniping challenge where you need to kill him, the catch for this trophy is he will need to be nearly out of the area. To make matters worse he will be in a car and difficult to hit at over 600m even with Empty Lung, to make the kill shot. To do this trophy it is recommended to use a rifle with a 12x or 16x zoom.

    These will give you the best chance to kill him at the distance required. As a final note, you will want to attempt this on Civilian difficulty so you have no bullet drop and you have a straight shot from you to the target. Below there is a video to help you.

    Climbing the Ladder
    Reach rank 40.

    Simply play the game, you shouldn’t have any trouble levelling up. You level by doing just about everything, below are some examples:

    • Completing the Mission
    • Kill High-Value Targets
    • Complete Side objectives
    • Kill Enemies
    • Find Collectables

    These will all generate EXP for you, simply make your way through the ranks until you get to rank 40. It is currently unknown if difficulty plays a factor in the amount of EXP you gain, however, a few players have achieved this in the Authentic run alone. If you are still off after completing the game in Authentic, completing the collection, and have completed the optional objectives, then you should just load up a level and kill enemies and knock off some of the random trophies.

    • Completing the game in Authentic

    Best of the Best
    Complete the entire campaign on Authentic difficulty.

    STORY

    These trophies stack and honestly, SE 5 is not that hard in Authentic Difficulty, even in Solo. Below are some tips to help you get through it.

    • You can save, and make use of it often
    • Rely on Stealth
    • A full-on Gun Fight can be lethal to Karl (the Player), try to only go guns blazing if you have no other option
    • If you are compromised disappear until normal patrols are resumed, this will limit the amount of danger you are put in but significantly increase the time.
    • Snipers are lethal, kill them before they kill you!
    • There are some upgrades that will help you more than others,
      • Combat Tree
        • Back In The Fight
        • No Time To Bleed
        • Combat Medic
        • Grenade Throwback
        • Quick Trap
      • Equipment Tree
        • Scavenge Weapon Ammo
        • Carry More Decoys
        • Extra Item Slot 1
        • Extra Item Slot 2
      • Body Tree
        • Health Boost 1
        • Health Boost 2
        • Cardio
        • Deep Breath
    • These are the most valuable for you to use and should be obtained when you can.

    NOTE:

    This can be cheated by joining a friend who is at the end of the missions, however, this is not recommended as the missions are easy to do even on Authentic.

    No Stone Unturned
    Complete 16 optional objectives.

    There are a total of 16 Optional Objectives scattered throughout the 8 missions of the game and you should attempt them when you find them. Below you can see what they are:

    • Mission 1:
      • Sabotage or Destroy the Gun Battery
      • Destry Anti-Air Gun
      • Destry Defenses

    Opposing Force
    Win one Axis Invasion as an Invader.

    ONLINE

    For this trophy, you will need to go to the Invasion on the Menu Screen and hunt for another player that way. Once found and joined a game you will need to hunt that player down and kill them before they kill you, alternatively if they are in a firefight and die while you are present in their game you will be awarded the trophy for winning against them.

    Enemy at the Gates
    Defeat an invading Sniper Jager.

    ONLINE

    This one is a little hit-and-miss. You will need to enable Axis Invasion and load any level of the game, once you have done so you will be playing the waiting game while you hope for another player to invade your session. This apparently cannot be boosted with a friend as it’s completely random who you will get, when attempting this a time limit of 4 hours was used to get friends to find each other and the results were that the same players kept getting invaded. Switching regions didn’t seem to help with this either. The best way found is to play in coop work your way through the mission and wait to be invaded, at first glance the session was only invaded within the first 15 minutes constantly, any time after that reaching up to 100 minutes or more there were no invasions. It is recommended to play the mission you feel comfortable with when attempting this trophy and do it in your most comfortable game setting (Solo or Coop).

    Provided you get an invader the game will notify you and you will need to hunt them down and kill them, which is the opposite of the Opposing Forces. Either the Invader or host will gain the ability to use the phone to call for a location, which will aid in finding your target. Simply kill the target to obtain the trophy.

    NOTE:

    If you are playing Coop and you are not the one who kills the invader you will NOT get the trophy!

    Fields of Glory
    Join and finish one team-based PVP match.

    ONLINE

    This is simple and all you need to do is play a multiplayer game, Win or Lose you will gain the trophy even if you join at the very end.

    Just a Flesh Wound
    Complete a mission, excluding the “Loose Ends” mission, in any difficulty without healing.

    This is easy to do on Very Easy when you are cleaning up trophies. Even in Civilian Difficulty it’s easy to get swamped by enemies so you will need to be careful when going for this trophy, that being said you shouldn’t need to worry too much, and you will probably get this naturally without trying too hard.

    Organ Grinder
    Hit every organ at least once with a rifle.

    There are a total of 8 organs that you need to hit in order to get this trophy. Simply aim at the area and shoot them, you will probably obtain this through natural progression on your initial run of the game, however, if you do not there is a list below telling you what organs to shoot:

    • Head
    • Heart
    • Lung (either)
    • Stomach
    • Liver
    • Intestines
    • Kidney
    • Testicles
    Strategist
    Make a tank shoot and destroy another enemy vehicle.

    This can be a little troublesome to do as the trophy only specifies an enemy vehicle, what you are actually asked to do is destroy a manned vehicle. This increases the difficulty but not by much, the reason for this is that enemies in cars, trucks, or motorbikes will normally exit the vehicle when you are close and they are alerted to you. The only way that has worked repeatedly in testing was to use Mission 7 and get the 2 tanks to attack the Armoured Car, it takes a fair bit of killing but provided you are playing on Civilian you shouldn’t have too much of a problem.

    NOTE:

    This is limited to HOST only, if you are playing in Coop your partner will not obtain it even if he is the one who does all the work.

    Master of Pistols
    Obtain six pistol-related mastery medals.

    Please refer to Master-at-arms for more information

    Master of Secondaries
    Obtain six secondary-related mastery medals.

    Please refer to Master-at-arms for more information

    Master of Rifles

    Please refer to Master-at-arms for more information

    Master-at-arms
    Become the Master of each weapon.

    For the Mastery of weapons you will first need to unlock and obtain all of the weapons in the game, there is a total of 18 weapons across the 3 disciplines, which are:

    • Sidearm
    • Secondary Weapons
    • Sniper Rifles

    The weapons are as follows:

    Sidearms

    • M1911
    • Welrod
    • Mk VI Revolver
    • Model D
    • P08
    • Type 14 Nambu

    Secondary

    • M1A1 Gov.
    • Wellgun SMG
    • M Pist.40
    • M Pist.44
    • Stengun MK2
    • Type 100

    Sniper Rifles

    • M.1903
    • SREM-1
    • Gewehr 1943
    • Karabiner 98
    • M1A Carbine
    • RSC 1918

    Each type of weapon requires its own set of conditions, which are outlined below along with how best to achieve them.

    Sidearms

    Ghost Kill 50 Enemies

    The best way to do this is to start up any level with the weapon you want to use and pacify all the enemies in a designated area. Once this is done make a save and start to kill all the enemies you have knocked unconscious. Provided there are no other enemies in the vicinity you will get Ghost Kills on the unconscious enemies and when you are done you can reload your save and rinse and repeat till you have the weapon done. It is advised to do this near a workbench so that you can change weapons once you have done the current one you are working on.

    Secondary

    Kill 150 Enemies

    This one is simple and doesn’t really have a strategy to easily achieve other than massacring everything with your weapon of choice. You could use the Pacification method highlighted for the Sidearms but honestly, it’s not that difficult that you will need to.

    Sniper Rifles

    Kill 50 Enemies with Headshots, over 100m

    This task can be troublesome, there are only a few good farming locations for this, like the beginning of Mission 3 for example. What you are going to want to do is find a place you are comfortable will sniping from and mark all the enemies you can see, once you are happy you have everyone make a save and start picking off targets with headshots, making sure that they are over 100m away. Mission 3 is a good one to use and has around 20 or so enemies that you can hit before an alert is sounded and more come, however, Mission 9 is the best by far and you can bypass the need to make targets as provided they are on the far side of the fountain in front of you they should be 100m or more. The road that Möller uses to escape is also around the 100m so if you are unsure you can use that as a guide. Using Mission 9 you should get between 15 and 25 per run before Möller escapes, just remember not to kill Möller and make a save the second you start the level, also you will need to leave the mission to change your loadout, so keep in mind how many kills you do actually need.

    HOW TO UNLOCK

    So there is how you can get the Mastery, but now let’s talk about how to actually unlock the weapons.

    M1A CarbineMission 5Complete Mission 5
    RSC 1918Mission 7Complete Kill Challenge (Crush the Scientist with the V2 Rocket).

    The best way, which has been highlighted elsewhere on the internet, is to knock out the kill target and place him where you want him to get the kill condition. An example of this for the RSC 1918, or the M1A Carbine, both of these weapons require you to drop something big and heavy on the target to kill them, however, sometimes the game glitches and registers the pacification as a kill and does not reward the mission as complete. The way around this is to make a save before you pacify the person, this will mean that you need to pacify them if it fails and reposition them, but it is better than replaying the game to that point. Alternatively, you can actually play and wait for the target to position themselves under the object you intend to drop which can take some patience but it might be a better way to achieve the challenge.

    THE INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGES

    In this final part of the unlock condition, you will need to complete a Kill condition on a set target. The targets are given to you at the beginning of each mission, however, to unlock the required Weapon you need to meet a condition. Below you can see a breakdown of the weapon and the mission you can find the target.

    Model DMission 6

    Once they are all unlocked you will be able to complete the Mastery for each of the weapons and obtain the:

    • Master of Pistols
    • Master of Secondaries
    • Master of Rifles
    • Master-at-arms

    Gunslinger
    Kill 150 enemies with a Pistol.

    This will come naturally as you work on masteries for the Sidearms

    Skirmisher
    Kill 300 enemies with a Secondary Weapon.

    This will come naturally as you work on masteries for the Secondary weapons

    Sharpshooter
    Kill 350 enemies with a Rifle.

    This will come naturally as you work on masteries for the Sniper Rifles

    The Long Game
    Total kill distance of 100000 meters.

    In true fashion for a Sniper Elite game, we have a trophy for cumulative distance, it might sound like a lot, but grinding out the Mastery of Weapons you will probably gain this trophy. All you need to do for it is shoot. The greater the distance the more you add to it, it is recommended to use your Rifle as they have a greater range and the game is called Sniper Elite after all.

    • Set Europe Ablaze
    • Kill 50 enemies with traps.

    This can go hand in hand with Rigged to Blow, and you should refer to that for more information.

    Set Europe Ablaze
    Kill 50 enemies with traps.

    Please refer to Rigged to Blow for more information.

    Precision Is Key
    Kill 150 enemies with any weapon while in Iron Sights.

    Please refer to Out of Scope for more information.

    Out of Scope
    Kill 150 enemies with a rifle while in Iron Sights.

    For these two trophies:

    • Precision is Key
    • Out of Scope

    You will need to use your Iron Sights Scope, for Sidearms and Secondary Weapons which is not difficult, however, for a rifle, this can get tricky particularly if you want to shoot distance. Any rifle that you pick up without a scope will count for this so you shouldn’t worry, but using your loadout rifle will make this go faster. One way that can work is getting an alert and just killing the enemies in close range with your rifle.

    NOTE:

    Not all rifles have the ability to have Iron Sights, however, one of the best rifles is the Gewehr 194, which you can use as a Loadout or find pretty easily in the world.

    Rigged to Blow
    Kill 20 soldiers using booby traps.

    Traps are a core mechanic of Sniper Elite and should be used when you can to cover yourself or distract enemies. Although they are easy to use, you might want to farm them out as you can’t guarantee that an enemy will actually trigger the trap or find the body. There are plenty of places to do this but Mission 1 seems like a good place. In this mission, once you have made it to where the resistance is being held, you will see 3 guys and a truck. The closest guard to you should be able to silently kill, once done make a save and rig the guard with a Mine, head over to the truck and sabotage to mask the sound. With this done the other 2 guards will be alerted and one will investigate, when he sees the body he should call his friend over, and after a second or 2 the trap will trigger, destroying the truck and killing the 2 guys. This should count towards both trophies:

    • Set Europe Ablaze
    • Rigged to Blow

    Now simply reload the save you did and reset up. This did glitch and only 1 of the guards came to investigate after a few loads, so be aware.

    My Little Friend
    Kill 50 soldiers with heavy weapons.

    Heavy weapons count a number of weapons, like:

    • Mounted Guns
    • Flare Gun
    • Panzerfaust

    Out of all these, the Flare Gun might just be the best to use, as it is a wide-range attack. There is a place where this can be farmed, which is Mission 6. For the objective to blow up the V2 Rocket that is aimed at Normandy, you will need to sabotage the rocket manually before heading to the launch control room, instead of heading to the rocket head over to the control room and locate the Flare Gun in the back of the room. Now make a save and head out, if you see the 3 Germans:

    • 1 on the Rocket Platform
    • 1 Patrolling
    • 1 Scientist patrolling

    You are in the right spot. Aim for about 50% between the rocket and the road into the rocket and fire. If all goes well you will net 3 Kills, now reload and try again, this should take around 10 minutes to get from 0 Heavy Weapon kills providing load times are fast.

    Alternatively to this, you could also just knock out the entire map, collect them together, and kill them in 1 got. There are 2 reference images below to highlight different locations.

    Mission 2: Occupied Residence

    Mission 3: Spy Acadamy

    It should be noted that this can be used for a multitude of trophies including:

    • Master-at-arms
    • Explosive Efficiency
    • Rigged to Blow
    • Out of Scope
    • Precision Is Key
    • Der Geist
    • & More

    Just remember to save before you start the killing.

    Explosive Efficiency
    Kill 3 on-foot soldiers with one grenade.

    There are a number of ways to do this either in stealth or in full alert, the best way is in alert and you find a place to camp. The reason for this is that you have Sticky Grenades, with these you can attach a grenade to 1 enemy who is near 2 others and kill all 3 with a single grenade. It should be noted that you really should attempt this in Civilian Difficulty so you don’t get instantly massacred by troops. Mission 8 is a good place for this as there are more than enough places to hold up and hide where you can funnel troops and make killing them easy.

    Alternatively, you could knock out a few enemies move them close together and toss a grenade into the middle of them. This means that they will not react and you will be guaranteed the trophy.

    Lord of War
    Get a kill with 20 different weapons.

    Refer to Resourceful for more information.

    Die Nussknacker Sweet!
    Get a testicle shot with a rifle from a distance of 100 meters or more.

    This one can be obtained at the very start of the first mission, when you are tasked with killing the spotlights you will see 2 operators. Both of these operators are over the 100m and easy to get Testicle Shots on. Simply mark the enemy and line up the shot to the side of the light stand and just above the slit of the trousers. There is a video below to help with this trophy, which can be found below:

    Kill 50 enemy soldiers with Found Weapons.

    Found Weapons are anything that the Germans are carrying or in weapon racks around the level. Simply pick them up and kill enemies, below is a list of some of the common weapons that can be found in the game, including loadout weapons.

    • M1911
    • Welrod
    • Mk VI Revolver
    • Model D
    • P08
    • Type 14 Nambu
    • M1A1 Gov.
    • Wellgun SMG
    • M Pist.40
    • M Pist.44
    • Stengun MK2
    • Type 100
    • M.1903
    • SREM-1
    • Gewehr 1943
    • Karabiner 98
    • M1A Carbine
    • RSC 1918
    • Mounted Gun
    • Flare Gun
    • Panzafaust

    From the standpoint of what is best the Flare Gun probably is and can be framed out in the same way that is outlined in My Little Friend.

    Der Geist
    Achieve 250 ghost kills.

    Ghost Kills are made when you are not detected by the enemy, this means that you cannot get ghost kills if you are in combat. If the Enemies are investigating or hunting you, you can sometimes get Ghost Kills on enemies who are away from anyone else, but it’s best to combine this with Sidearm Mastery. To do this the easy way you will want to find an area on the map and pacify all enemies then simply go round and use your Sidearm to kill them, check the side of the screen and make sure it says Ghost Kill. Honestly, you should obtain this naturally, especially when working on your Authentic run as you will want Ghost Kills all the time.

    As Quiet as a Mouse
    Kill 50 enemies during a Sound Mask.

    Sound masking comes in very useful, especially in Authentic Difficulty. Sound Masking is when you hide your gunfire behind a loud sound like a sabotaged vehicle or generator, or even planes overhead. You will get a limited window to achieve this so you will need some degree of haste. You will know when you are masked by the wavy lines at the top of the screen, and you will hear a loud sound which will hide your gunfire.

    This should be obtained through natural progression as there are a ridiculous amount of opportunities to kill enemies under sound masking.

    Close Quarters
    Perform 100 lethal takedowns.

    This is a simple trophy, however, it is advised to attempt this on Civilian difficulty. All you need to do is go up to a guard and melee kill him using the Triangle Button. That is really all there is to it, if you are doing your Authentic run and are not very confident in your sniping ability then you might default to this to stay in stealth and make your way around, so you will probably obtain this through natural progression. If you do not then just load up a mission and run up to everyone and melee kill them.

    Snake in the Grass
    While in Tall Grass, kill 50 soldiers.

    New to Sniper Elite 5 is the Tall Grass hide spot, which comes in incredibly useful. Simply walk into the grass and you will get a white aura, this signifies that you are hidden in the grass. This will only work if you are not compromised by the enemies and are not too close to a guard who is patrolling. Now in the grass, all you need to do is kill enemies, either by melee or sniping them.

    The above links are all Powerpxy videos on how to get all collections in the game across all missions.

    There are plenty of Collectables in the World of Sniper Elite 5. There are 5 types and at least 3 of each per-mission. The exception to this is Mission 9, which has no collectables. It has also been reported that any collectables that are obtained in the DLC Wolf Mountain are counted towards these trophies, the different types of collectables are:

    • Letters
    • Classified Documents
    • Items
    • Stone Eagles
    • Workbenches

    Once picked up you will not need to recollect them, and you will get the opportunity to recollect the collectables on any run of the mission, you will see an Already Collected in the popup box in the top right corner if you have. Below are the video links for a mission by-mission collection, all credit for the videos goes to Powerpxy for amazing video guides.

    It’ll Buff Right Out
    Destroy Möller’s shiny new car.

    This can be done on Mission 2, the Chateau. Inside the grounds, you will see a white car like the one Möller escapes in, in Mission 9. This is the car that you will need to destroy in order to obtain the trophy, either shoot it or throw some TNT at it, and watch it go up in smoke.

    Locomotion Commotion
    In Martressac, create an accident that destroys the train in the storage area.

    This can be done on Mission 4, in the train yard. At the South end of the Kill Target’s area, you will see a maintenance shed, with a train outside and some gas cylinders next to it. Above this train is a crane with some cargo hanging from it, this is the “Accident” that you need to make to destroy the train. There are some switches which can be shot to move the crane but you will need a good scope and empty lung to be able to target them, there is a video below to help to show the location:

    Up Close and Personal
    Melee takedown each one of the three snipers guarding the bridge.

    This is done on Mission 6, when you are part of the landing, it should be noted that you will want to attempt this on Civilian difficult as it will be easier on that. When you get to the Western Bridge objective you will find that there are some snipers, there are a total of 3, and you will need to locate them before heading to kill all 3 with melee. Their locations are:

    • 1 in the Church Tower
    • 1 in the Hotel
    • 1 in the Roof of the House

    Once you have them marked you have 2 options to go about doing this trophy, which are:

    • Stealth
    • Combat

    If you pick the stealthier option you will need to sneak into the village and take out the enemies quietly so as not to draw attention to yourself. This way will limit the movement of the enemies and you should be able to track where everyone is with ease, knowing that the snipers are not going to abandon their post to hunt for you. The second option is combat, which is most people’s preferred option, simply mark the enemies and charge into the village and kill them with melee, gunning down anyone unfortunate to cross you, provided they are not 1 of the 3 snipers. Below is a video to help you.

    Road Rage
    In Secret Weapons, find and destroy one of each type of vehicle present in this mission.

    This is achieved in Mission 7 when you break into the secret lab to destroy Project Kraken. You can attempt this on your Authentic run but it would be far easier on a Civilian run. All you need to do is destroy 1 of each of the different vehicles found on the map, which is easy in comparison. In addition to this, it does not need to be done in a single run of the mission, you can attempt it over multiple runs. There are a total of 6 Vehicles that you will need to destroy in order to be awarded the trophy, which are:

    • Motorbike
    • 222 Armoured Car
    • Car
    • Truck
    • Tank
    • Gunboat

    You will find most of them pretty easy, however, the Gunboat is the only 1 that is strictly missable due to if you destroy the V2 Missile silo in the lake the Gunboat somehow vanishes. This might be a bug but best to take the boat out before the silo. Armoured Cars and Tanks are weakest behind, but it’s best to take some armour-piercing rounds for your rifle to combat these. The other vehicles you can toss a grenade at or shoot the engine or fuel tank to destroy. Below is a video to help with this.

    Don’t hold your breath
    Make the final shot in St Nazaire without using Empty Lung.

    This is the final real mission in the game, Mission 8, and this is the end of the mission. To achieve this, once you have set the submarine pen to detonate, you will need to take 1 final shot to rupture the fuelling tank and destroy Project Kraken. This shot must be made without Empty Lung and is easy to make even if you have no scope, the game does provide you with a scoped rifle on the desk next to the viewpoint to shoot through, but as long as you do not use empty lung you should get the trophy.

    Brains of the Operation
    Kill Möller with a headshot.

    This is achieved on Mission 9, the final mission of the game, where you need to hunt down the mastermind behind Project Kraken and stop him once and for all. You can combine this trophy with:

    • Sight Beyond Sights
    • Can’t Outrun a Bullet

    Although the latter of the 2 trophies would be harder with Iron Sights, if not damn well impossible for most, it is possible. Because of how difficult it is to combine all 3 of these trophies there is a recommendation, which is to do Brains of the Operation with Sight Beyond Sights, however, make a save before you kill Möller. The save will let you load back and attempt the Can’t Outrun a Bullet with the sniper that is provided by the game behind you. You can also just do the Sight Beyond Sights and Can’t Outrun a Bullet together, if it is easier for you.

    Sight Beyond Sights
    Kill Möller with a rifle, while in Iron Sights.

    This is arguably harder than the Can’t Outrun a Bullet for most players, as getting a kill shot on him at 600+ meters is a difficult challenge. This will task you with killing him by only using the Iron Sights of the rifle, and it’s a difficult shot to make when you can’t see that far ahead of you. It is recommended to wait until he is passing by the hill you are on, making sure to save beforehand in case you miss, and then try to shoot him. This will put him around 100m away and with Iron Sights this is the best chance you will get.

    Shoot for the Moon
    Complete three Survival missions.

    Survival missions are basically wave games, you will have a location to defend from waves of enemies. There are 3 missions you can pick from the available 5, and they can be done either Solo or Coop and even on Civilian difficulty. All you need to do is kill the enemies and make it through to the next wave, if you get to the next objective you can use that as a starting point and you do not need to complete the match in the same sitting you can use the furthest starting point you have reached. Once you have survived all waves on 3 missions you will get the trophy.
