Rebellion has released a new developer blog video detailing its latest iteration of the Sniper Elite series' signature X-ray Kill-Cam. The updated slow-motion camera includes better sound and more detailed gore.

The Kill-Cam in Sniper Elite V2 depicted bullets piercing through three layers of the human body: skin, bones, and organs. For Sniper Elite 3, Rebellion is adding two more layers: muscles and the circulatory system. The X-ray Kill-Cam is the Sniper Elite series' most well-known feature, and the new detail promises to add even more spectacle to kill shots.

The video also details work Rebellion has done with sound design. Sound captured from various high speed vehicles was reworked and inserted when watching the bullet travel in slow motion. Additionally, the team at Rebellion captured sound of themselves smashing fruit and vegetables to use for when bullets hit a body. The Kill-Cam will also be used on vehicles in Sniper Elite 3, to show what happens when you bullets collide with the inner workings of machines like a car engine.
