Sniper X with Jason Statham is a new shooter from Glu Games that gives players big guns and then points them at groups of enemies. When players are not picking off packs of enemy soldiers one by one with a sniper rifle, or blasting a doorway clear with a shotgun, players will be focused on tweaking their weaponry, ensuring that it is always up to the highest performance level possible.
Not everything in Sniper X with Jason Statham is as simple as look-aim-shoot, and our Sniper X with Jason Statham tips, cheats, and strategies guide will educate players on how to be a top performer in every level they take a shot at. Pun intended.
Tip for Good
Landing a headshot in Sniper X isn’t too important since you can easily kill an enemy soldier with one shot to the chest. However, if you’re looking for a bit of extra cash from each of the missions (and you should be!) you’ll want to aim for the head.
Landing a headshot is not only a rewarding achievement, but at the end of the level you’ll be rewarded with some cash for each head shot you landed. Just remember to zoom in so that the target’s head is as large as it can be in your scope, to minimize the chance of a missed shot.
Stay on Target
When using a sniper rifle, particularly the default one, you’ll have a few moments in between shots where your character chambers the next shot, and you’ll be removed from the zoomed-in scope view. As the next shot is being readied, you can still look around. Take this little bit of downtime to reorient yourself with your next target, and position the camera so that your target is roughly in the center of the screen. Now, when your character zooms back in after loading the next shot, you’ll already be in close proximity to your target and will only have to make minimal adjustments.
Don’t Blow It
There are explosive barrels in Sniper X with Jason Statham that the player can shoot. The ensuing explosions are an easy way to take out multiple enemies at once, though they will alert any survivors to your presence.
Not all the barrels are explosive barrels though. Notice the ones in the image above; they will not explode if you shoot them. Don’t waste your precious time, and ammo, on these barrels. The only thing shooting them will do is alert the enemy soldiers to your presence.
Instead, aim for red barrels only.
In some of the levels, enemy snipers are positioned in locations that overlook the other enemy soldiers. Once these snipers are alerted to your presence, you will only have a few seconds to eliminate the enemy snipers before they will kill you with one, precise shot.
Snipers are easy to identify because they have lights (?) on their guns, and are dressed in ghillie-like helmets. Because every sniper in video games needs to have at least part of a ghillie suit. Don’t ask questions.
What I would do is quickly scan the level for snipers, and use silenced shots to pick them off, and then focus on the rest of the enemies. The danger of an enemy sniper is just too high to ignore, so take them out before they take you down.
