Cash can be easy to come by in Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts. All you need to do is play the game’s missions and complete objectives. Of course, the problem is that most contract requirements can be time-consuming since the maps are huge. However, there’s a particular cheese that you can keep doing over and over, one which lets you make a lot of money in just a few minutes.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts – Easy money cheese
The cheese can be found in the fourth mission in Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts which takes place in Arakcheyev Fortress. You might be wondering why I’d give a tip when the game’s about to end. Well, it’s because most of the other contract objectives take a while to finish or they aren’t as rewarding. Plus, you’ll need extra cash for some of the more expensive items anyway. If you want, you can breeze through the first three missions until you’re able to pick the Arakcheyev Fortress map.
To make things easier, you’ll also want to unlock the sniper rifle turret (gadget). It costs a bit of cash and one challenge token to unlock. The “Booby Trap” and “Semi-Auto” perks do cost a bit of cash. Also, make sure you’ve got the mask’s “Tracker” perk. You’re sure to have these already by the time you’re able to tackle the mission, and so the cheese is mostly to get some extra resources for spending.
Anyway, start the Arakcheyev Fortress mission and fast travel to the northernmost point (seen above). Make your way through the cavern in front of you. If you unlocked the mask’s “Tracker” perk, you’ll easily spot the mines that you need to avoid.
Take out the sniper at his perch.
I’m seeing double
Now, one of the objectives here is to kill the real Dr. Antanasia Alikhanova. You’ll spot two of them at the helipad since one of them is a body double.
The first one you shoot will always turn out to be the wrong one, and the real Alikhanova will start running away. She’ll head inside the fortress which can mess up your progress, so it’s imperative to take out both of them quickly from the get-go.
This is where the sniper turret comes in handy. You can tag both Alikhanovas (“H”) and shoot (“G”). With the “Booby Trap” perk, the extra range should be enough. And, with the “Semi-Auto” perk, the turret can quickly eliminate the two dastardly ladies. Alternatively, you can also do a tandem shot with your turret.
If you don’t have the turret unlocked, you’ll simply have to be quick with your trusty long-ranged weapon. The distance of both targets will usually be 120 meters away from your vantage point.
If you take a while, they’ll split up and one of the targets will head further to the western area of the base. You won’t be able to spot her from your location.
Anyway, once you’ve killed both targets, just turn around, ping the map to spot the mines, and sprint past them. The extraction point is where you spawned earlier. Each run takes less than five minutes and you’ll get 150,000 cash each time.
Take note that higher-tier perks and weapons will still require challenge or intel tokens, but having a lot of cash does help. Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is available on Steam. For more information, check out our guides and features hub.
