Although Sniper Elite 5 is not an open world, each mission has a vast explorable map. To help you explore, the game offers optional objectives. These are smaller tasks ranging from collecting info, sabotaging enemy property or plans, and killing someone. Sometimes can take a bit of effort to complete, but completing them will reward you with a huge offering of XP, giving you an extra boost in leveling up fast.

Furthermore, optional objectives allow you to learn more about the environment, helping you carry on the main mission.

2) Killing Optional Targets

Like Optional Objectives, the game offers you Optional targets at each mission. To complete Optional Targets, you have to takedown certain vital figures in the Nazi army. Let it be essential generals, scientists, or anyone else. Killing them is not easy, especially when you’re in the latter half of the campaign, but the rewards are totally worth it. Besides, taking out an extra Nazi is always fun.

3) Keeping It Stealthy

Since Sniper Elite 5 is a stealth game, it is no surprise that completing objectives with stealth and silence has its own rewards. Furthermore, you can also display your creativity more when going with the element of surprise. That’s why stealth games are fun in their own right and reward you greatly.

Try to take down enemies with ‘silent kills’ as much as possible for extra XPs. Using melee takedowns, silences, guns, and sniper fires all fall in this category.

4) Axis Invasion Mode

This is the PvP Invasion mode, where other players come into your world and try to stop you from completing your mission objectives. Basically, a Nazi sniper hunting you down. It can be thrilling, and hence, a lot of excitement runs when playing with Axis Invasion mode turned on. A lot of mind games and quick reflexes are used in this mode.

Since it’s multiplayer, the rewards for winning are great but also harder than playing against a CPU since highly skilled players will completely overpower you. So practice enough to be one of the highly skilled ones.

These are the ways to gain XP and level up fast in Sniper Elite 5. Own the battlefield and become the deadliest sniper of World War 2 France.
