However, you will need to travel a lot around the map. Rubble and Ruin is not exactly a free movement type like north to south or east to west. As the name suggests, you will find a lot of rubble along the way, along with ruins. That is the reason why the mission may seem like a corridor-like labyrinth.

You can start the level off by going to a statue in a small square where there are four Nazis. On the other side of the statue will be a lantern next to the stack of crates. You will find the classified document next to that lantern.

After getting secure radio lines, continue your journey through the ruined building with the resistance fighter. When you pass through a room, you will see a barricade; when you look below, you will see two soldiers standing next to a bar. You will be able to see a crate between them that contains the classified document 2.

Once you get the intel from above, go back and follow the street going to the left. Since the path is full of rubble, you will have to crawl your way through the rubble all around the white-shelled building. The reason for going all around the building is that the front door is locked and will not open.

  1. When you are there, climb up the ladder so you can get into the building.
  2. Once you are inside, you will see a key on the wall.
  3. When you get the key, go upstairs to open the door, which is locked.
  4. After opening the door, you will see a generator, and across that will be a desk on which you will find this personal letter.

Now, continue going northwest. You will have a marker for an interrogation in a bookstore. All you have to do is go inside the basement, and the classified document will be behind a locked door. You can open the door using a satchel charge or by picking a key from an officer.

  1. If you don’t see any marker, don’t worry; continue north up the street in front of the house, which comes after a fueling area.
  2. You will also see a spotlight and truck there; when you see a barricade, go past it till you reach tall grass down.
  3. There will be red and blue buildings on your right; go between them, and you will find a basement, drop down with the cell behind you.

Now you will have to return to MG42 emplacement. Once you reach there, go inside Metro Du Café and then climb up after taking the stairs. Open a door in your path for a secure starting location. Once you climb up to the desk, this classified document will be on the floor.

After getting the document, head northeast toward the town hall, where you have to kill Yoshikawa. You can read the Sniper Elite 5 Kill Challenge List guide to learn all about assassinating targets. You might wonder what the blue icon is on your map, and it is a resistance cache on the corner of the building and south of the town hall.

Use the generator which you will find inside, and a ramp that will take you upstairs. Once you climb the hanging floor section, you will see the workbench at the top.

Your next location is the bombed-out theatre, which is in the north direction of the church. You will see it right in the middle of the building block with a glider crashing into it. You will have to go from behind, and once you go upstairs, you will see a locked crate near MG42’s emplacement. Use a crowbar to open the locked crate and get the personal letter.

You will find this workbench in the church crypt. Go to the northwestern corner of the main hall to enter the crypt. The door is locked there as well, and you can unlock it by satchel, which is on scaffolding nearby. If you don’t want a satchel, there is a crate on top of the tower, which has the crypt key in it. Then, go through the door underneath the main steps on the northern side.

Now you have to go east two blocks to Hotel Sue La Mer. You will see a blue marker; this time, it will be for Moller’s Safe in the hotel. If you skipped some parts from this guide on the Rubble and Ruin workbench, then you probably don’t have the blue marker.

Go across the sewer entrance, and you will find an octagonal building. You will see “Hotel” written on it facing sewers with red letters. You will find the personal letter from the downstairs office. Then, go upstairs to open the safe next to the Rising Sun flag.

After getting out of the octagonal building, take the west road and head south. You will reach a white and red brick building with green shutters along with a sandbag barricade. Go from the left side of the entrance, followed by a hole in a wall.

You will see a typewriter on a desk, and next to it will be the letter. Go upstairs to secure the starting location by simply opening the door.

Stone Eagle 2

After opening the door, go through the next one, which is next to the resistance flag. You will find arsenal and communication devices in the room. Go to the first window on your right and look carefully; the Stone Eagle will be resting on its roof.

After getting out, head to the northeast road of the sewer entrance. You will see a checkpoint and two towers on its left. A refinery building will be visible if you look past the second tower for the stone eagle to the left of the two tanks.

If you still have a satchel charge, you can simply open the door using it. There will be a crate on your left which can be opened by a crowbar to get the hidden item. If you don’t have a satchel or want to save it for later, then you can go around the room through a safe on the left side. You will get Sewer Pump’s room key by opening the safe.

After opening the safe, keep the leys and follow the corridor around. Go upstairs and walk past a green door where you will see a generator in front of you. Then, keep going on the passage on the left until you see a small armory. The key required to unlock it will be with one of the soldiers nearby.

Hidden Item 3

You will have to destroy U-boats here and input a classified U-boat pen on the way to the second-story catwalk. Turn left to go inside the pen into room Funkraum 84, which will be at the very end. However, you will find a smaller room there called Kontrollraum 78. Once you push all four desks to the center of the room, you will find the hidden item.

It will be your last collectible in this last journey, Rubble and Ruin Workbench of Sniper Elite 5. However, you still have one thing left, and that is to take out Moller. Moreover, if you have purchased the Kill Hunter DLC or season pass, there is still a lot to discover. I hope you will be able to complete this last mission with ease and joy.
