Take careful aim from behind the shadows and line up your sights. Adjust the scope of your heavy duty sniper rifle to bring the crosshair in sync with the target’s soft-spot. Take a deep breath and let your heartbeat slow down, sufficient to steady your hands long enough to gently squeeze the trigger and let the bullet rip through and take down the target. This is the life of a sniper, an ace marksman who takes down multiple targets all by himself using only a high powered sniper rifle, his wits, the environment around him and sound military tactics and strategy. The game Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Limited Edition takes you through the life of an ace Sniper who gets behind enemy lines in order to destroy the enemy from within. Playing the part of an ideal sniper, you are able to take down multiple targets with the help of the environment and your discipline.
Synopsis and Features
The Ghost Warrior 2 game has an enhanced Limited Edition which introduces players to various multiplayer packs, maps and new characters. The most noted among them is Captain Cody Anderson who goes by the Call-sign Sandman. Sandman is a high ranking sniper in the army who used to be a member of the Delta Squad. Sandman comes with an exclusive ghilie suit, the camouflage that snipers wear to avoid detection. This is usually made by the snipers themselves using the material and foliage available around the nest. The ghilie suit allows you to perfectly blend in with the surrounding environment and keeps you well hidden even at moderate distances.
A lot of factors come into play when a sniper calculates his shot. The gravity, wind speed and even the position of the sun has to be accounted for. Most often, a sniper is accompanied by a spotter, someone who lines up targets for him to eliminate. This usually happens during difficult missions where multiple targets are involved and quick successive shots are necessary. Both the spotter and the sniper need to be well hidden in order to avoid detection. The sniper usually takes point when it comes to missions and is responsible for selecting the best possible vantage point to take the shot. This place is referred to as the Nest.
The onus of the mission rests solely on you, as Snipers do not travel in Squads. You need to make the choice on whether a target is worth taking out or if it would just be too much trouble to eliminate and is easier to just ignore. A Sniper also has to keep a careful count on his ammunition so as not to run out of it. A Sniper Rifle can hold only a limited number of rounds and Bolt action rifles require time to reload. All these are factors that need to be taken into account before choosing equipment for a particular mission. Timing your shots is a critical aspect of your mission. Get the timing wrong and an enemy might see your victim fall and raise the alarm.
