Sniper Elite 5: Best Skills To Unlock Early

Sniper Elite 5 is a challenging game, and you’ll need to invest an immense amount of patience and strategy to overcome its often lengthy, multi-objective levels. But the game’s skill system can help you along a bit, too, by providing you with some very useful boons to things like health, equipment carrying capacity, and scope stability. In this brief guide, we’ll tell you which skills you should pick up early in the game to set yourself up for victory.
