Sniper Elite 5: How to find and eliminate Lanzo Baumann

The most obvious thing to do in the beginning is to find Lanzo Baumann. He is located at the construction site in the northeast of the Festung Guernsey.

Baumann stays inside his office which is in the southeast of the construction site. You can narrow in on his location through the map, which should not be too difficult. Having found Baumann, there are two methods in which you bury him in concrete to complete the Kill Challenge. 

The easier way to bury Baumann is to pacify him and make him unconscious. Having knocked him out, you will have to carry Baumann to the cement mixer which is located to the east of the office.

Players will have to interact with the railing which is beside the mixer, and then drop Baumann’s body into the cement nearby.

The other way to complete the mission is by not meeting Baumann at the start. Therefore, head straight to the railing and sabotage it along with the cement mixer.

This will in turn cause a disturbance, causing Baumann to come out and investigate the matter. Having done his checking, Baumann will lean on the dodgy railing.

As soon as he does that, Baumann will fall into the cement below and be eliminated. Thus, you will have completed the Kill Challenge of Festung Guernsey. You will now be receiving the Type 100 SMG as a reward for completing the challenge. 

However, there have been some issues for players while doing the challenge through the second method. They are not able to get the Type 100 SMG, even after following all the steps as Baumann is eliminated.

Therefore, in order to solve this problem, you can try to reload an old save of yours before attempting the challenge again. This can help in solving the big issue that is confounding the players with no rewards.
