It is a strategic third-person shooter in which players have to use clever tactics, and land killing blows on their enemies meanwhile also maintaining perfect stealth. Players can play a variety of game modes, including survival modes. The game also has some intricate but rare achievements which gamers can complete and add to their collection. This guide will be covering the Sniper Elite 5 Locomotion Commotion achievement, which is a very rare achievement that only a few have ever obtained.

What is Locomotion Commotion?

Sniper Elite 5 Locomotion Commotion is a rare achievement and is also considerably hard to complete. The game itself doesn’t provide enough for the players to complete the achievement on their own. The in-game achievement’s description is very vague, and it says, “In Martressac, create an accident that destroys the train in the storage area”.

So basically, if you hadn’t been paying the uttermost attention, without a guide, you cant complete the achievement based on the in-game description alone. While you’re at it, consider reading our Sniper Elite 5 VIP Flags and Flare Gun Locations guides.

To complete the Locomotion commotion, players need to complete a few things in an orderly manner if they hope to complete the achievement. First and foremost, they should head towards the collectibles section and select the “War Factory mission 4” map. Before reading further, why not take a quick look at Raid Weapons Lab Locations and Secret Weapons in Sniper Elite 5 guides.

Mission Preparation

There are a few things that the players would need to make the process of completing this achievement easier. To make things trouble-free, players would want to bring with them a grenade. This ensures that players would not have to worry about obtaining it during the mission.

Moreover, players would need any of the sniper rifles they can use but with a high-powered scope. You can equip the highest zoom scope you have, which makes things easier to do. We do recommend picking up the K98K or reading our Sniper Elite 5 best sniper rifle guide and then deciding which one best suits your playstyle.

Also, do not forget to turn off the axis invasion world mod because it can make things harder for you. Players can choose whatever difficulty they want; however, the easier, the better. Setting the difficulty to the lowest would only make things easier for players and save some time.

Moving on to the achievement itself, once the map is loaded, players would need to take the first zip line into the main playable achievement area. There, they would notice two enemies that would need to be killed for the achievement to proceed. Here is the location that you need to be in order to kill the crane operator.

There are many ways players can kill them, with throwing a grenade right under their noses being the easiest. After killing them, there are many ways you can proceed and unlock the achievement.

If you have a high-powered scope, you can simply aim at the distant crane you can see, and you will notice an enemy in the crane. Simply kill him using your high-powered scope, and the achievement will be completed.

However, in the case you don’t have a high-powered scope, like an x12 scope, then players may simply head over to the storage area and kill the crane guy to complete the achievement.

After you have killed the crane operator, he will accidentally strike the payload with volatile gas or fuel towers, causing them to explode. You will get the achievemnt or trophy unlock after this step is done.
