    There is a way to beat a mission on Sniper Elite difficulty while only having to play the mission on Cadet and the last checkpoint as Sniper Elite.

    1. Beat a mission on Cadet difficulty.
    2. Continue to next mission, then immediately Exit to Main Menu
    3. Go to Mission Select and pick the same mission you just beat but select Sniper Elite difficulty.
    4. Quit to Main Menu after the mission loads.
    5. Quit to dashboard (guide button then hit Y) or turn off the Xbox 360.
    6. Restart game and hit continue option in Menu.
    7. The mission will load from the last checkpoint on Sniper Elite difficulty. Beat the rest of the mission and get credit for the entire mission on Sniper Elite.

    Note: The last checkpoint you load will become Sniper Elite difficulty, so you need to account for bullet drop, wind and you take less damage. But since the last checkpoint is usually close to the end it is fairly easy to beat the end of the mission.

    STRUCKED PORTALWill it automatically put you on that last checkpoint even though you’ve completed the mission?

    Here is my complete Video Walkthrough for the Sniper Elite Difficulty.

    I think its for all Mission the fastest and easiest Way to beat this Difficulty

    I link the Playlist to my Channel, not all Videos here because it to much "Videospam" in one Solution.


    Question? Ask me in the Comments

    spxyu02Awesome set of videos! Very easy to follow, and the traps you set up beforehand for infantry rushes or vehicle appearances were great ideas. Going from the easiest difficulty to this one was tricky because of bullet-drop & wind, but once you got the hang of it, your videos did the rest. Thank you!

    GodLike499Isn't it kind of wrong for a German to be playing this game? I get it that they're Nazis, but they're still German, no?

    FYI: I'm just making a joke/observation here. In no way to I condone bigotry or fascism.

    This is a short-cut guide based off HonoraryDecoy's solution with a easier to follow format and a video showing each step for those visual learners, like myself, who were having trouble figuring it out. So, kudos to HonoraryDecoy for initially figuring this method out!

    Using this guide you will need to play through each of the 11 levels on Cadet difficulty and repeating only the last checkpoint for each level on Sniper Elite difficulty. Having that said, it is possible to do this on your first playthrough. And, all of the levels are incredibly easy from the last c.p. except for one (Kaiser-Friedrich Museum). The rest of the levels you may have to shoot a couple of people or just take cover and run to the end zone.

    Here's the link for the video step by step guide:

    1) From the main menu, select "single player" "mission select" "level ???" "cadet".

    2) Play through the whole level till you reach the final c.p.. Then press "select" & "exit game" . ***Note: if you completed the level, just wait till you get the completed stats screen and press "exit game" (do not press continue). You should now be back at the main menu.

    3) Select "mission select" "same level" "sniper elite". After the mission starts: press "select button" & "exit game". You are now back at the main menu.

    4) Select "single player" & "continue game". Immediately (before the objective screen has time to load) Press the "Xbox button" & "Y" to dashboard out. You are now at the Xbox home screen.

    5) Reload the game, select "single player" & "continue game". On the left hand side of the screen you should notice the level & sniper elite difficulty. When the game starts after the objective screen, you will start at the final c.p. for that level. clap

    6) Rinse & repeat the process for the next level.

    Catatonic NaliI can confirm that this method also works on the new Xbox One remastered version of the game. Only difference is that instead of dashboarding you go home and shut the game down before restarting. Only done the first proper level so far but this method worked perfectly.
