Sniper Elite V2 is OUT NOW on Steam, Xbox and PS3 from Rebellion Games.

I've been too busy lining up double and triple kills to try it out, but there is a Co-op mode and multiplayer deathmatch.

For the squeamish, there is the option to turn off the x-ray kill cams (or turn up the frequency).

I've created a Steam Group for us: The Penny Arcade Sack Snipers. Stole the userpic from the OP, hope you don't mind @DocShifty. :D



Now forget all that cause Sniper Elite V3 comes out soon.

    Yesssss.

    Just got this, played around with the first level or so. Much easier to die than in the demo. Pulled off some great shots already. Testicular destruction. Double headshots. So many shattered bones and punctured giblets.

    I'm a pretty bad aim apparently but still, so so satisfying to x-ray blast a Nazi head open.

    So I played a few rounds of team deathmatch; heap of fun, even though I spent most of my time getting shot from unknown locations. Match was set to sniper rifles only, so it was some pretty tense rounds of trying to find vantage points without getting blasted. Maps are pretty large with lots of cover and good spots to snipe from.

    Out of curiousity, for those that pre-ordered, did anyone get the 2 guns that were supposed to be included? I've got the Hitler level and that's it, no bonus guns.

    There's team deathmatch in the demo?

    Also does shooting a nazi in the balls area kill them?

    edit: Oh nevermind I didn't realize it was already out! Tempting, but bad timing since Diablo 3 is out soon.

    The demo is just the first mission.

    Shooting a dude in the gonads is a fatal "vital shot". And you can watch the testes explode in slow motion.



    I'm really enjoying the campaign and I'm getting better at doming the Nazis. There's been a fair bit of reloading checkpoints to get better shots, but that's just me enjoying the shooting mechanics and playing on Elite while being bad at it sometimes.

    Multiplayer was a slow-motion, skulking fun time. The games I played went for 20 minutes and total of 40 kills were scored. The main difficulty for the moment is having no idea what the maps are like. The in-game map is not very detailed and running around exploring is not very wise. There were a few times that I was able to line up beautiful shots on unsuspecting prey or turn on another sniper that had already fired on me.

    Yep, it's a fantastic game, I've got four hours out of the demo. Hopefully gonna pre-order it, if not I'll get it very soon after release.

    I've started singing adapted lyrics from Check Yo Self while playing it;
    "You coulda had a V8, instead of a .303 slug to your cranium, I got 5, and I'm aiming 'em."

    I think my best shot in the demo so far is when I effectively scalped the first enemy sniper, blowing the top of his head off. That and the surprise kills when you hit the grenades are the best. :D

    you gotta use the binoculars and press fire when the arrow appears above their heads. Could be a Cadet mode thing only though.

    As much as it would feel like it, a shot in the nads isn't going to kill you, is it?

    I think I'd rather have the guy fall to his knees in pain and then get an easy head shot. Now that would be brutal. But they are nazis soo...

    The Demo sold me on this. SO HARD.

    I ignored it because it looked like some throw away budget title. I was so wrong... I had it preordered but Ive got too many games coming up I had to cancel, definitely going to pick this up though. Killing a second nazi with the crumpled bullet that just passed through his buddy's head never gets old.

    It's like the N-word and the C-word had a baby, and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

    The shot is extremely traumatic and there are a few serious arteries in that exact region that, when severed, would allow the victim to bleed out in short order.

    I've also had a couple snap shots "incapacitate" and enemy instead of killing him.

    This looked like a super budgety title so i ignored it.

    But I do always play the sniper in any war game.

    i just have a hard time playing any sniper-only based game that isn't an arcade cabinet of Silent Scope 2.

    A shot to the nads that ripped off both your balls would probably make you bleed out in a few minutes. Also, shamelessly stolen from the Youtube thread.

    Also, I have no idea how to use mil-dots... I have to play super fun easy mode.

    I was under the impression that the gold bars and bottles of wine were both collectibles.

    Apparently, you're supposed to snipe the bottles. I've only seen one, indoors, in a small room.

    That's cool. I love extra stuff like that. I wonder if you get something special if you manage to get a kill and a bottle in 1 shot.

    I just managed to get my first double kill remote detonation. This game is good. That getgamesgo deal is pretty tempting. Has anyone bought from them before?

    edit: Wait, so the getgamesgo version doesn't release until the 5th? Even if I'm in US?

    Gives you another chance to get the preorder goodies, though.

    I've been reading a steam thread about it and some are saying they got their codes today. It sounds like if you're in US and buy from this site they send out codes today which still give you the preorder goodies, but let you play it now, while everyone else just gets to pre-load it. But then I'm also reading that a couple are saying they got codes that don't work.

    So many questions. If anyone bought it from this site, let me know how it went please!

    I think its based on where you activate the codes rather than the codes themselves.

    So essentially I could "pre-order" the game for 30 bucks, activate it today, play it, and get the pre-order DLC even though I didn't technically pre-order it.

    I feel like I'm cheating the system. I read something about someone getting their steam account banned or something too unless I was reading it wrong, so I'm worried about that. It was in the steam sniper elite v2 forum, so it's like a 90% chance to be a load of crap, but still.

    Just tried the demo for this recently and it was fun, a lot of fun. In fact, it was slightly disturbing how much fun I was having stealthily blasting heads apart at a great distance...

    I didn't play it, but I heard that it went from hide and snipe to run and gun at some point.

    I'm a little less than halfway into V2, but it's mostly snipe and sabotage. Lot's of sneaking around and laying traps in between all the sneaking and sniping. There was a mission that was mostly indoors/underground, but there's still plenty of room for long shots. The rest was getting in close and taking out unaware targets with the silenced pistol or stealth kills.

    yes. I'm playing through Ghost Warrior now and its painful. Sniping is great but Theres too much problems like bugs and random Rambo moments.

    first Sniper Elite is awesome.

    I wish they'd make a really good modern sniper game where you're some SEAL out in remote areas of the world taking out targets. Ala the first COD Modern Warfare game where you have to blow that guy away from the roof while he's at the meeting.

    All kinds of conflict nowadays in Africa, the Middle East, South America, some great locations to design and play in I would think.

    That said the demo for this was great despite my sort of apathy for WW2 settings anymore, my kid watched and it and ran out of the room when she saw me blow a guys head off.

    Incidentally, Hitler is a little runaway hiding almost the whole time chicken bitch. I took out practically the whole Nazi army in waves but didn't get to tag him when i tried the pre-order bonus level. That's mostly me being shit at hitting moving targets though.

    He does scowl mighty angrily when he escapes though.

    Oh god Sniper Ghost Warrior is the worst thing. The generic FPS parts are so bad that they are largely unplayable.

    I am loving the shit out of this though and I loved the shit out of the first one way back when. I wonder if there's some kind of Easter egg if you get a nut shot in Hitler.
