Sniper Elite 5 is the latest sequel of the Sniper Elite series. It is a tactical third-person shooter that encourages the players to use stealth and long-distance sniping to accomplish the objectives. However, the game features an interactive map, survival mode, and some of the best snipers in Sniper Elite 5.
The game has many missions which you have to complete. However, you might need the rat bomb for certain missions. Also, you must complete and gather four essential things to get 100% in a mission. The essential things are, missions, side missions, kill list targets, and collectibles. One such mission is Sniper Elite 5 Secret Weapons which is mission number 7.
Sniper Elite 5 Secret Weapons
The mission Secret Weapons features a vast map in which your main objective is to infiltrate a nazi research operation base in Masif. You put your life in danger and infiltrate the base to know more about Operation Kraken.
The map is split into two parts by high walls and fences. There are two gates on this border that are heavily guarded. However, there are holes in the fences that can be used to enter the other half without having trouble with hostiles.
The majority of the map is covered by enemy snipers who are relentless in long-distance combat. Try to avoid them and take them out from afar. However, the area in Sniper Elite 5 Secret Weapons is also roamed by tanks and other vehicles that can be avoided.
Your spawn point on the map is on the south side of the map. So naturally, you will have to cover large distances to reach your objectives. However, there are alternate spawn points that can be discovered.

- Bypass the checkpoint

Kill List Target: Christian Jungers
The area Secret Weapons also features a kill list target. The target is Christian Jungers, and there is also a challenge tied to this target. The challenge is to kill him by dropping a V2 rocket on him. Christian Jungers can be found in a hanger on the northern half of the map.
Once you have located him, the easiest way to complete the challenge is to do a non-lethal attack. Now that he has been subdued, you can clear the rest of the enemies out to make it easier to carry him out. Carry him towards the hanger where the V2 rocket is located and place him under the rocket.
Once he is placed under, you just have to drop the V2 rocket on him to complete the challenge. For a more in-depth explanation, read Sniper Elite 5 Kill Challenge List guide.
