Hitman: Sniper

Action 04 June 2015

A mobile entry in the popular action games series that expands on a simple minigame, Hitman: Sniper Challenge, from 2012, which came out before the fifth installment in the Hitman series. Unlike the main installments, the game from Square Enix Montreal focuses strictly on sniping challenges, in which we have to silently eliminate our targets. Therefore, we canít move and have to complete our task from a static position. Agent 47 has to locate his prey and can shoot only a single bullet, which is made more difficult due to the fact that most of the missions require you to locate your target in a crowded public space. This forces us to wait for appropriate time to shoot and eliminate it without getting spotted by other people. Completing each task earns us points that can be used to unlock and attach new upgrades to our sniping rifle.
