About This Game

In the dark days of the end of World War Two amidst the ruins of Berlin, one bullet can change history…

Sniper Elite V2 is an award-winning and authentic World War II sniping experience. You are elite US sniper Karl Fairburne. Parachuted into Berlin amidst the Germans’ final stand, your mission is to prevent Nazi V2 rocket program technology from falling into the hands of the besieging Red Army. You must aid key scientists keen to defect to the US, and terminate those who would help the Russians.

Take advantage of authentic weaponry, learn how to stalk your targets, fortify your position, set up the shot, use your skill, patience and cunning to achieve your mission. Stealth gameplay is the key as you find yourself trapped between two desperate armies in a race against time.

Watch as the celebrated ‘bullet cam’ from Sniper Elite returns, bloodier and more gruesome than ever – skilful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion flight of the bullet, then targets are graphically rendered in X-Ray as the bullet enters and destroys your victim. Organs shred, bones splinter, teeth shatter, as the true impact of the sniper’s bullet is brought to life.

As World War Two ends and the Cold War begins, every shot counts. Use it wisely.

Key features:

  • Sniping Simulation - Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.
  • X-Ray Kill Cam - Amazing ‘kill cam’ technology showcases what really happens when a bullet enters an enemy’s body, allowing players to see hearts and lungs tear, livers burst, and bones shatter.
  • Authenticity - The game features authentic World War II Berlin locations as well as vehicles, weapons such as the Springfield M1903 the Gewehr 43 and the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, and uniforms modeled after the original versions.
  • Use the Environment - The slightest changes in the environment need to be taken into account to move into the perfect position, observe the quarry, take the shot and slip away unnoticed.
  • Sniper's Choice - Players will often find themselves facing a choice of the perfect shot that leaves them catastrophically exposed or a more difficult route that means they can continue their mission.
  • Multiplayer Game Types - Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Team Distance King, Distance King, Team Dogtag Harvest, Dogtag Harvest and Capture the Flag.

New Content Available For Your Game!

Since its release, Sniper Elite V2 has been continually supported by Rebellion, adding new features and content - including an additional 10 free multiplayer maps.

Four additional single-player mission packs are available for purchase, including the ultimate sniping mission - Kill Hitler. Each DLC pack also contains 2 new authentic weapons for your arsenal.

- looks nice
- bullet physics are okay
- x-rays are pretty awesome

- scrolling binoculars often doesn't work (w/ multi-monitor setup)
- controls are terrible, very consoley
- AI is not only omnipotent, but also perfect shooters, doing 360 noscopes all the time
- missions didn't really feel connected
- blowing up tanks by shooting fuel caps wtf
- can't play it stealthily - after a cutscene suddenly you become the number one target
- also when Germans fight Russians - if any of them see a bit of you, you're the most important target for some reason
- enemies spawns are triggered and sometimes you can see them spawning

Overall, it looks and plays like a low budget game. I'm glad I got it for free - I wouldn't pay anything for this.

In my opinion this is one of the best sniper games or even best sniper game so far honestly
game atmosphere makes you feel that you're a real sniper :) especially the gravity, wind, recoil, scopes and the good sound of rifles and rest of guns, also the graphics, physics and many more had a Significant progress in Compared with the first Sniper Elite in series

* in addition 4 DLC with new rifles,pistols,smg and new campaign missions could be more effective on your gameplay experiences

The only issue is annoying about this game are the bugs and glitches in some multiplayer maps that could be disgusting a little about this game especially when you play in TDM mode, by the way the bugs are inseparable part of all games atm Less or More.
