Sniper Elite 4 sees players battling against World War II-era Axis powers in the beautiful vistas of Italy. It features many of the mechanics that fans of the Sniper Elite series have come to know and love, namely the cinematic ‘kill camera’ and, of course, testicle shots. Nothing quite compares to shooting a Nazi in their sensitive areas.

Alongside the many familiar mechanics and breathtaking maps, players can enjoy a wide array of weaponry. Encouraging them to use it, the Variety is the Spice of Death trophy/achievement requires players to get a kill with each one of the game’s sniper rifles, secondary weapons, and sidearms. Here’s everything a player needs to know to snag that trophy.

Sniper Rifles

As the game’s title implies, Sniper Elite 4 takes great pride in its selection of sniper rifles. The table below lists the snipers that must be unlocked and used to kill an enemy to gain progress towards the Variety is the Spice of Death trophy/achievement. Some are even used by the game’s many sniper enemies, so it’s not necessary to purchase them all, but they’re still worth it for loadout variety. It’s worth noting that none of the game’s many DLC weapons need to be used to get this achievement.

Best Places To Farm Kills

With the weapons unlocked, all that’s left is to kill at least one Nazi with each one of them. Note that players must “save and exit” after getting a kill with a weapon of their choice, and can track the weapons they’ve used by getting a kill that contributes to the weapon’s unique mastery challenges.

Mission 5, ‘Abrunza Monastery,’ is recommended for farming kills. The ‘pre-mission’ area can be run through extremely quickly, and an enemy can be found almost immediately. The more niche’secondary weapons that cannot be unlocked directly can also be found in the Target Führer DLC mission by getting into the armory.

Sniper Elite 4 is out on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
