    Load Mission 5 "Siwa Oasis" and go to the first AA Gun Area in the right bottom of the Map. Clear the Area und walk slowly forward. On the roof in the distance appears a Sniper, mark him if you want and create a Savegame. Now kill him with a Headshot and reload the Savegame. Repeat this until the Achievement unlocks.

    UncaringChaffIt seems to me that you have to do it whilst there is noise going on around you. I must have killed about 50-75 snipers and nothing popped but as soon as I saved the game on Siwa Oasis as the plane flew over and killed the sniper it popped after 4 kills.

    It's not part of the achievement description but I'm guessing that the sniper 'sees' you if your bullet is heard. In other words he reacts to your gun behind fired and sees you.

    I found another place to get this Achievement. I tried all the other salutation and it never popped . So i found this spot on Mission 3 Halfaya Pass, Right after the 2nd sniper nest and optional objective. There is a hill you can walk up at the top is a sniper by a generator. Just sneak up and shoot him with your welrod, Make sure you make a game save before you kill him so you can be back at the same spot again plus it makes it faster.Then load your save and repeat and after 10 times bam Achievement is yours hope this helps. I put a link to the video below.

    ii K0JI iiThis is very wonky indeed. I tried this method 20 times and it did not work. I quit to try the other solutions and what happens? Achievement pops when I went back to the menu. Still i will give you a positive vote because. I used this method.

    UPDATE: unfortunately this one seems to be glitched in some cases and the achievement doesn't pop until well after the required 10 kills or not at all. if someone has a solution for this problem, send me a message an i'll update the guide.

    UPDATE: try Mission 5 first. Seems to have a higher success rate judging by the comments in different youtube guides. also "ThisOnes4Dixie o" wrote that it instantly unlocked on 5 when 7 didn't work.

    Mission 7

    Right at the start of the mission you will have the opportunity to kill two snipers. Go to the spot in the video and make a savegame. The snipers will change their position slightly from time to time, but you will always see them.

    Your first shot doesn't blow your cover but you have to take the second shot pretty quickly or you get spotted. Load your savegame and repeat.

    Mission 5

    Early in Mission 5 you will see a cut-scene. After it, go into the small room right next to you. Thats the spot were you can get the 10 Sniper kills.

    Look out the window and wait for the enemy sniper on one of the rooftops. I highlighted the 3 spots he will pop up in the video. He patrols this roof and moves between 4 different spots. One Spot is on the backside and he will be gone for about 60 seconds. Just wait for him to come back to the front side. As soon as he shows up make a manual save so you don't have to wait for him after loading. repeat this 9 more times and the achievement is yours.

    MercyMainPlebI'm not sure if it's the achievement or the spot that is bugged but after trying it 20 times on chapter 7 I tryed the spot in the solution right below this and popped instantly after 10 times so maybe try that if your still not getting it

    Th3 ReplicantAfter 140 sniper kills I finally got it on Siwa. I had to loot (for my last weapon part) the sniper on top of the domed building. It's in the north, slightly right of the top most Snipers Nest. I had him tagged all the way from the second set of Flak cannons. I snuck into the building from the main entrance: there are two ladder here. I made sure no-one had a yellow circle over their head and everything was All Clear. Then on the bottom of the first ladder I made a save. Went up the ladder and shot him from behind with the Welrod.
    Then I picked up my final weapon part.
    Reloaded the level and went up to kill him again from behind. After 9 reloads I got this achievement...

    During my way to the sniper he did see me (open yellow circle over his head) twice but that apparently didn't matter. As long as all is clear when you go up the ladder and kill him from behind.

    Good luck.
