January 26, 2017 Written by Zarmena Khan

CI Games has released a new video for its upcoming tactical shooter, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, focusing on scope calibration, positioning and the Drone. The first in a two-part series, the gameplay video aims to give players some tips on becoming an effective sniper.

If you prefer a written description, then the developer explained the aforementioned elements in a press release as follows:

Scope Calibration
Check the distance to your target and set the elevation on your scope accordingly to compensate for bullet drop. Be sure to check the wind indicator as well, because the wind influences whether the bullet will drift to the left or right. When all is set, exhale and take the shot.

Positioning
Take advantage of Jon’s surroundings to maximize his effectiveness in an area. Use the environment to reduce weapon sway while aiming. Crouching and lying down also reduces weapon sway. Sniper bullets are strong and can penetrate multiple targets if lined up correctly, and special sniper bullets can even penetrate walls and other barriers.

The Drone
Recon is critical to planning your mission prior to infiltration of an area. The drone can locate and mark enemies, sabotage objects and enemy devices. A simple flyover of the area can expose weak points in the enemy encampment allowing Jon to take out his enemies with deadly precision.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is out on April 4 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
