The most important information about the mission and the Sniper Assassin mode

In The Last Yardbird mission (and other Sniper Assassin mode missions that will be added later), you can choose to play solo or cooperate with another player. We recommend familiarizing yourself with the map in single-player mode before attempting multiplayer.

The Sniper Assassin mode restricts your movement on the map and requires you to use a sniper rifle to eliminate mission objectives and complete additional challenges. For example, in the Himmelstein mission, you must take all shots from the hill near the large mansion. In “The Last Yardbird” mission, you have 15 minutes to eliminate three main objectives while also getting rid of 15 guards on the map. The game stops the time counter when the last person is killed. If any of the targets flee from the area after the alarm, the mission may fail if you don’t fit in the time limit. It’s recommended to use the instinct mode during this mission to locate the objectives and avoid raising the alarm.

The Sniper Assassin mode has a different mechanism for raising the alarm compared to the story missions. A yellow icon appears above someone’s head when they find a body or spot a killing. Kill them before the icon turns white to avoid raising the alarm. Shooting environment objects won’t trigger the alarm, and you can miss on purpose to distract enemies and lure them to secluded places. The scoring system in the Sniper Assassin mode is complex, with additional points for eliminating mission objectives or guards and negative points for killing innocent people. The score multiplier increases permanently by completing challenges in the mission, and additional bonuses are awarded for completing the mission with a Silent Assassin rank, for no bodies found, and for no innocent people kills.

The Sniper Assassin mode allows players to earn mastery levels, but unlike the mission stories, there are no rewards for new gadgets or starting locations. Instead, players can unlock upgrades for their sniper rifle, such as better accuracy, faster reload time, or a larger magazine.

During the Sniper Assassin mode, there are three types of ammunition available for the sniper rifle. The Body-Piercing Ammo has unlimited use and is the most commonly used. The Wall-Piercing Ammo is limited and should be used when the target is inside a building and waiting is not an option. The Shockwave Ammo is also limited and can be used to push the target off a cliff or through a balustrade, making it easier to dispose of the body. This ammo is also helpful during an evacuation where targeting the enemy becomes difficult.

While players can use a silencer, the most important feature of the sniper rifle is the ability to slow down time. Pressing the attack button (R2/right trigger by default) stabilizes the scope and activates a slow-motion effect, making it easier to aim accurately.

The Last Yardbird mission has three main objectives. Dorian Lang is the first target, arriving in a limousine on the west side of the map. Players should eliminate his bodyguard before he exits the car. Dorian and his daughter will travel to the eastern end of the map for a wedding, but Dorian will also visit other areas of the estate later in the mission.

Doris Lee is the second target, arriving in a helicopter on the southern landing pad. Players can distract her bodyguard by shooting the landing pad’s edge and using the shockwave ammo to throw him into the chasm. Doris will mainly travel through the gardens of the estate but can also enter the building and meet other objectives.

Guillaume Maison is the last target and the owner of the estate. He is accompanied by a bodyguard and usually found in his office on the upper floor of the mansion’s left side. Players can kill them both at the same time or lure the guard to one of the balconies. Guillaume can also move around the map and meet other targets.

The meetings between the targets occur at different locations throughout the estate. It’s important to note that some meetings may not go as planned if you’ve already informed the main targets about your intentions. To complete the associated challenges with ease, it’s recommended not to interfere.

The following are the key meeting locations:

1) Chandelier Room – all three targets can meet here. Wait until there are about 4 minutes left before the meeting starts. Aim at the chandelier chain above the targets to take them out in one go.

2) Cannon Room – all three targets can meet here. Before the meeting, sabotage the chandelier and wait until there are about 4 minutes left. Shoot the cannon on the left of the targets to cause an explosion and eliminate them.

3) Labyrinth – Dorian and Doris meet here. Hit the flag mechanism in the labyrinth and wait until there are 8 minutes left. Once the meeting starts, aim at the planks holding the statue to make it fall on the targets.

4) Art Gallery – Dorian and Guillaume meet here. Destroy the lamp next to the photographer’s stand and hang the flag in the labyrinth before the meeting. Wait until there are 4 minutes left in the mission, and Dorian and Guillaume will move to the balcony after the meeting. Shout at the speaker above them to make it fall and eliminate them.
