Behind every great Sniper are hours of training and preparation. Behind the hours of training and preparation is a safe secure location from which those great Snipers have been able to rest, recuperate and gear up for the next assassination outing. Fortunately for us, CI Games have decided to open the doors on the safe house from which we can expect to prepare for our missions in the open-world expanse of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 – and here’s what you can expect to find when you step foot in the door.
Come release this April 25th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, the safe house in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a place from which lead protagonist Jon North can sleep to any designated hour, buy and craft various weaponry and equipment to aid on your mission, choose equipment and loadouts and of course start out on his mission. But what can you expect to find in the safe house?
First up is the Weapon Cache. Here players can change his or her weapon loadouts, including changes to things such as Primary weapons, Secondary weapons, side-arms, gadgets, weapon skins and armours. These can be bought new and equipped or changed and this is where you will spend time sorting each weapon to the specifics you want for your next mission.
Next up is the Workbench, and this will help you to craft and create a wide variety of specialist bullets, gadgets and modify the various weapon attachments using the many resources that can be found in the world of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. There are five kinds of resources that you can find and use with each being used in different proportions depending on what you hope to craft. The currency in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is called Trading Goods and almost everything in game is available to buy with this currency. Trading Goods can be acquired by various actions such as the completion of main story missions and side missions, finding collectibles, helping civilians, eliminating most wanted targets and also just finding them throughout the open-world.
The Special Bullets that can be crafted in the game include EMP bullets, Armour Piercing bullets, Tagging bullets, Luring bullets, Explosive bullets and more. Those that wish to make the most of their loadout will want to pay close attention to just what it is that each bullet packs to help make quick work of the various enemies found throughout the game.
There will also be a large variety of Gadgets and Combat Gear that can be crafted or purchased in the Safe House, in order to help players execute a planned approach. Gadgets differ in their use with some capable of longer range attacks such as frag grenades and others available to be used as warning devices for closer range.
The final thing to look forward to within the Safe House are weapon modifications and these can be changed with unlocked attachments to help bring a comfortable feel to your weapon of choice, with new attachments and modifications available after finding them throughout the world, as well as receiving new ones for the completion of missions. Once unlocked, attachments can be purchased in the shop found in the Safe House along with med-kits and armour for those accident-prone soldiers amongst you in need of aid in the battlefield.
So, there we have it, the things you can expect to find when you take your first steps into your hub of operations in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. Will you be stepping into the open-world adventure of brotherhood, faith and betrayal when Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 launches this April 25th?
