"Hunt Ghille Snipers and Elite Assassins in a thick cane field while avoiding enemy patrols" - Spec Ops Description
Counter Sniper is a Spec Ops Mission featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Endgame. The objective of the player is to eliminate a number of ghille snipers and lethal Elite Assassins while navigating a cane field. In addition enemy patrols are also in the area and on higher levels bring Technicals and Dogs with them to help search. The level and amount of opposition increases as the player raises the difficulty. Once all the snipers are killed the level is over despite the amount of remaining enemies.
Like in Snake in the Grass stealth is important in this level as once aroused the enemy will target the player and quickly destroy them once they are discovered. On lower difficulties the player can easily avoid the non sniper enemies but on higher levels he/she will have to take them out as well as the snipers particularly Dogs and Dog. When it comes to hunting snipers the player should take their time and make sure they have the right target before committing to the shot. Despite what the name suggests Ghille Snipers are more of a problem then Elite Assassins, especially when hiding in the cane field, so take them out as quickly as possible before hunting their Assassin allies. Players should bare in mind that Elite Assassins are the living embodiment of the Cold Blooded and Ninja perks and should not rely to much on weapons with the Heartbeat Sensor or Thermal Scope attachments.
Regular Difficulty: - 35 Normal Enemies, 5 Ghille Snipers, 2 Elite Assassins
Hardened Difficulty: - 40 Normal Enemies, 7 Ghille Snipers, 4 Elite Assassins, 2 Dogs
Veteran Difficulty: - 38 Skilled Enemies, 7 Ghille Snipers, 7 Elite Assassins, 4 Dogs, 2 Technicals
Sniper Locations - VeteranEdit
Not only does this guide reveal where the sniper’s usually spawn it is also set out in the order that a player will usually encounter them. Enemies highlighted in bold appear on Hardened Difficulty and those in Bold and Italic appear on Regular.
Elite Assassin 1: - On the bluff just after the player starts, this sniper will usually attack with his secondary weapon, usually a PP2000, so players may not recognize the enemy as an Elite Assassin
Ghille Sniper 1: - Located in the Cane Field near the service road
Ghille Sniper 2: - Same as Ghille Sniper 1 but closer to the Irrigation Ditch
Elite Assassin 2: - On the Water Tower behind the Irrigation Ditch. Killing this enemy with the weapons you process may be a bit of a long shot but it is defiantly doable
Ghille Sniper 3: - Hidden in the Cane Field, players will have to enter the area to find him/her so it is suggested that the player brings the MG4 with Heartbeat Sensor with them to help locate any hidden enemies
Elite Assassin 3: - In the tree line above the Irrigation Ditch. Players can’t reach the area on foot or by Technical so will have to rely on long range takedowns.
Ghille Sniper 4: - Other side of the Irrigation Ditch usually hidden just beyond the service road in the long grass
Ghille Sniper 5: - Hidden just inside one of the Greenhouses at the edge of the field
Ghille Sniper 6: - Like Elite Assassin 3 and 4 this sniper is hidden along the tree line
Elite Assassin 4: - Hidden in the Tree Line like Assassin 3 and Sniper 6
Elite Assassin 5: - Located on the roof of one of the maintenance buildings, can be easily spotted after the Technical moves on to the next area
Ghille Sniper 7: - The Final Ghille Sniper is located near the tarpaulin covering the ZPU-23
Elite Assassins 6 and 7 (Note that these enemies only spawn after all other snipers and assassins have been killed): - Located across the map by the Plantation House. It’s recommended to head to Elite Assassin 2’s location and use his/her Denel NTW-20 to take the shot. These are seriously long range shots yet should still be able for skilled players.
