Sniping in Hitman needs it’s own chapter. While thinking about your idea,i realized how complex it is.
I was thinking about how to show off but it’s just way too much to explain. The video would be more than 1h. It’s also a very different approach if you want to do a Sniper Assassin oder a Silent Assassin Sniper. And using the Lancer is a totally different approach compared with a silenced Sniper Rifle. Comparing Sniper Rifles makes no sense since the Sieger 300 Ghost is published. It’s simply the best Sniper Rifle of all.
Let’s start with the basics:
There are several kind of single targets (Paris):
1) Lonley Targets:
The easiest Targets to Snipe. They are alone at their place, no whitnesses, no one who can come around to find the Body, no distraction needed.
Example: The guard at the balcony of the Auction.
2) Routine Targets:
Targets which move on the routine at a spot where you can snipe them unseen.
Example: The aution staff waiter who will go the Auction Bar (Where Dalia drinks)
3) Triggerd Targets:
Some Targets stand at a point where you can’t shoot them, but by triggering something they will move to a place where you can shoot them.
Example: The auction staff guy at the first floor apartments. (Goes to smoke on balcony after noticing a noise/chandelier drop/bullet distraction)
4) Lured Targets:
You can leave a phone, Breaching Charger or Audio distractor to lure them at a specific place (Triggerd from far away). In case of a Civilian finding an audion distractor, he will report this to a guard which will come to take a way the AD. This can also be used to kill the guard as target. Leaving it on a balcony, window ledge or a blind spot.
Can can be manipulated by leaving a weapon at a specific place and let them bring it to a specific Save Place. The goal is shot them on their way or at the Save Point unseen. Another way to manipulate them is to let them get in aleart mode (by shooting 2x near them). They will move to your place. The danger about this method is: They could aleart also other guards which will also come to your place.
5) Public Targets:
These Targets are in public and surrounded by whitnesses. These kind of Targets can’t be shot SA by Sniper Rifle. You would have to manipulate them in an extreme way and do a close sniper kill, which makes no sense.
I will make a video these days to show the different types of targets with different approaches.
