rubble and ruin mission starting point – Sabotage Kraken fuel system Sniper Elite 5

In Mission 8: Rubble & Ruin, this region is located far north of the map. At the heart of the docks, the first phase of this objective is completed. Two Submarines are berthed here, parallel to one another and connected by a central bridge. The campaign’s final objective where you can earn collectibles is this one. Stone eagles, personal letters, workbenches, and secret documents are all present. 

But you’ll have to move across the map quite a bit. Not quite a free mobility type like north to south or east to west, Rubble & Ruin is. As the name implies, numerous ruins and rubble are along the route. This explains why the task could appear to be a maze of corridors.

Turning Off The Pressure Valves

The pressure valves on each submarine can be found near the back. These valve pumps, or control panels can be seen on the left side of the submarine’s control rooms if you decide to go and interact with the docks area from the western side.

These valves must be interacted with for your character to turn them. It’s time to go to the following phase once you have closed the pressure valves on both submarines.

Cutting off the primary fuel storage from the gasoline lines is the next stage in achieving this goal. A door leading to the fueling depot chamber can be found in the northwest corner of the docks.

The next step is to interact with the lever situated immediately behind the two pumps you have just turned on. This lever intends to overload the system and destroy the submarine. Also, consider reading our Sniper Elite 5 Festung Guernsey Workbenches guide.

Exiting Submarine Dock

Once you’ve exited the Submarine Dock in Sniper Elite 5 and completed the first two phases of sabotaging the Kraken Fuel System, head to the U-Boat Pen’s northeastern exit as it’s about to explode..

Exercise caution as the docks are ablaze, attracting attention. Eliminate three or four enemies blocking the exit. Cross the bridge post-exit, leading to a building. Ascend using the ladder, positioning yourself by a window for surveillance.

In the Rubble and Ruin mission, enemies will cut the fuel line, rendering the Kraken Fuel System vulnerable. Seize the opportunity, finding a high, concealed vantage point to target and destroy the exposed fuel system once the enemies act.

Observing the docks’ shutter opening from the window, take your shot as enemies cut off the gasoline line. Focus on the middle pump, aiming precisely to annihilate the docks through the Kraken fuel system in Sniper Elite 5.
