Sniper Elite 5 is the next installment in the award-winning franchise, including unrivaled sniping, tactical third-person warfare, and an improved kill cam. This guide contains simple instructions for obtaining the K-98 and RSC 1918 rifles, which many players are now unable to obtain due to the buggy nature of SE5. Check it out!
How To Unlock K-98 And RSC 1918 Sniper Rifles In Sniper Elite 5
You’ve come here because SE5’s buggy status has prevented you from unlocking the game’s only other bolt action weapon, as well as the lone French rifle. Don’t be concerned! “Sometimes you simply have to shoot stuff,” stated the Ghost of Kiev himself, and that’s how I figured it out!
How To Unlock K-98 Rifle
To begin, you’ll need to have a least room temperature IQ in order to sneak inside the Chateau and go to the right side of the U-shaped main building without causing havoc. A gathering of German officers can be seen from the second level. Your target will converse with you for a bit before moving on to a box of bottles. DO NOT TAKE ANY ACTION YET.
He’ll come to a halt just out of range of the chandelier, then proceed to the box itself and bend over it. Now is your chance to shine. And this is when the problems begin. This sign which says “Sabotage Chandelier” should not be pressed. It’s not going to work. It kills the police and drops the chandelier, but it does not unlock the achievement.
Rather, you should aim for the chandelier. I used AP rounds, but I’m not sure they were necessary. Shoot the links above the chandelier, not the chandelier itself. And there you have it! K98 has been unlocked.
How To Unlock RSC 1918 Rifle
It’s time to get your hands on the high-speed baguette launcher. This time, stealth is much more vital, because even if you hurl a bottle, the target will run to his safe room and never come out, no matter how long you wait (I tested it, 30 mins and gave up).
I propose going to the safe house nearest to him; otherwise, it’ll be difficult to go in without waking everyone up. Once you’ve gained access to the building, proceed to the second story. Go to the catwalk and press the “Interact” button, that’s what you’re supposed to do. DON’T.
It won’t let you open it once again. Rather, you must shoot one of the chains that is holding the winged V2 prototype up. I’ve shot both, and either will suffice. After you’ve waited for the target to fall under, blow that chain (only AP ammunition tested and proven) and it should fall on the scientists, allowing you to access the RSC.
Alternatively, you can knock the guy out and bring him under the V2, then shoot the V2 to kill him. Now use your awesome baguette launcher to annihilate some Krauts. So there you have it. You’ve now unlocked the guns that so many people still don’t have. Now get out of here.
