The lights are on
– Stay Cautious
I found out
that in Campaign mode you need to stay cautious by staying crouched, not
sprinting towards enemies. Obviously it’s a sniper game and you are supposed to
snipe, but if you choose to get into firefights, 95% of the time it will result
in very frustrating deaths. This may make the missions longer, but you are
never going to beat the game by getting into firefights.
– Increase the sensitivity
This can be
easily adjusted in the in – game settings menu. If you try to perform shots of
1 km or further (trophy for that), you can’t steady the camera unless you have
the sensitivity up. For example, in one of the first missions in the game you
have to snipe this guy that is forever away in a bell tower. Without the
sensitivity up, you will most likely miss the shot, and all the enemies on the
ground will attack and you will die in one of those pesky firefights.
– Get Experience in target practice
Practice is simply explained in the name of the mode, as its plain and simple
target practice. It does help you with the actual game and sniping tactics if
you are new to sniping games. Another thing it helps with is steadying the
sometimes screwy aim.
– Embrace the environment
in the weeds can leave you undetected when you are prone. It’s kind of like the
Crysis series where you can move around entire waves of enemies without them
noticing you, and then you can move on to the next wave of enemies and do the
- Follow the mission “kill order”
When you set
up at specified sniping spots, make sure you follow the order in which the game
tells you to kill them. Going off on your own and just trying to be a bad ass
by killing them in your order simply doesn’t work, as the rest of the enemies
in the area will notice and engage you.
2 is a good game especially if you like sniping, or if you don’t want a
stereotypical bland fps.
