Sniper Elite 5 VIP Flags: Cut Content You Should Know

Our Sniper Elite 5 guide entails the cut collectible content in this game known as VIP Flags that were removed in the final build.

What Are VIP Flags in Sniper Elite 5

VIP Flags would work as collectibles if they were still present in Sniper Elite 5. Players would need to collect every last one of these flags to get the completionist trophy. Every mission would have at least 3 or 4 VIP Flags that you probably had to shoot or collect. But Rebellion Developments decided to make such items non-functional for some reason in their final version of Sniper Elite 5.

Key Takeaways

Sniper Elite 5 features VIP Flags as collectibles, typically with three to four in each mission.

  • These flags are visible but cannot be interacted with, including in Campaign Mission 5.
  • In Campaign Mission 1, a collectible flag can be found on a draining board atop a sink in one kitchen, and possibly in the Atlantic Wall Mission.
  • Other collectibles in the game include Personal Letters, Classified Documents, Workbenches, Stone Eagles, and Hidden Items.

Where Are VIP Flags Located  

Although you can see VIP Flags in campaign missions of Sniper Elite 5, you cannot interact with them. They are just placed as an environment piece and no longer serve any purpose. Specifically, you find VIP Flags in Campaign Mission 5 of this game.

Interestingly, you can mark these VIP Flags but that is just about it. There is nothing else you can possibly do with them. We should add that there is actually a flag in Sniper Elite 5 acting as a hidden collectible. It is not sure however if that is a VIP Flag.

Collectible Flag in Mission 1

Hidden Collectible Flag Location in Campaign Mission 1

There is a collectible flag in Campaign Mission 1 of Sniper Elite 5. It is located inside a farmhouse. You can reach this farmhouse by following a path which is just North-East of the exfiltration zone. Hidden Collectible Flag is placed on a draining board, atop a sink inside that kitchen. It is a hidden item in Atlantic Wall Mission.

Why Were VIP Flags Cut From Sniper Elite 5

There is no certain reason as to why these flags were removed but our wild guess is that Sniper Elite 5 already features massive amounts of collectibles. Adding VIP flags on top would’ve been too much. Following is a list of all the collectibles in Sniper Elite 5;

  • Personal Letters
  • Classified Documents
  • Workbenches
  • Stone Eagles
  • Hidden Items

Every type of collectible is spread through every campaign mission. As you can see, the list of collectibles is already over the top, and adding VIP Flags would’ve made a bad impression on gameplay. Maybe Rebellion Developments decides to reintroduce VIP Flags in a future update with a different and better purpose or for PVP.

Sniper Elite 5 is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 5, and Microsoft Windows. This was all about our guide on the VIP Flags in Sniper Elite.
