Sniping men is passé, so Sniper Elite 3 will also let you snipe tanks and jeeps.
Vehicle takedowns – complete with the X-ray killcam – are a new feature for Sniper Elite 3, so it’s perhaps fitting that the latest developer Q&A video focuses on these and how they work. If you shoot out a jeep’s engine, you’ll see the pistons moving in slow-motion as the bullet rips through it.
There’s also a visit to a tank museum, and a bit of talk about the myriad ways you can opt to take out a Tiger (the tank, not the feline). You might opt for explosives to immobilise it and make shots easier, or use your binoculars to tag weak points and take it apart piecemeal, or – if you’re unbelievably cocky – you might just opt to try to fire a bullet through the vision slot and take out the driver.
Have a look at the video below to see hot bullet-on-engine block action. Sniper Elite 3 is due out on 27 June.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
