Weather Matters in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, Out April 25 on PS4

Wind, rain, and light affect every shot in the sprawling open-world shooter.

Tomasz Pruski's Avatar Posted by Senior Level Designer

When exploring the war-torn Georgian landscape of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, players will be exposed to a range of weather conditions that affect the gameplay in various ways. Pulling off a precise shot over a long distance will require paying close attention not only to the instrument readings, but also to your surroundings.

Before you can take the shot, you must make your way to a good vantage point undetected and weather conditions will factor into successful infiltration.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 follows a dynamic day and night cycle, so consider the optimal time to approach a mission and if need be, pass the time by sleeping in your safehouse. At night, you’ll be less visible to your enemies, but alternately need to look out for searchlights and various patrols using flashlights to search darkened areas.

Once on a mission, you’ll be fighting against your enemies, but also need to consider all the challenges of the environment. During rain your footsteps will be slightly obscured and enemy patrols will have a harder time finding you, but you’ll also have to compensate your aim to counter heavier bullet drop.

When you finally make your way to a sniping position and set your sights on an enemy combatant, consult the wind indicator before shooting. The wind strength will pick up at various times during the day, especially during harsh weather conditions. Any time you want to take a shot, adjust your scope to the target distance, check the wind influence for that setting, offset your target to counter the wind and only then, pull the trigger.

Good luck, sniper!

    Thanks, BadboyStudiosInc! :)
    HDR is a yes
    Two single player DLC already in the pipeline – one (shorter) coming out day 1, second (long expansion) coming out a bit later.
    The entire map area is 27 sq km. The playable area is minimally smaller but it’s still a lot of real estate :)
    Hope you have a good time with the game!

Hi Tomasz,

For me the most important feature of sgw3 is multiplayer.
Not a single word have been said about it and i tried contacting you guys several times only to be met with deadsilence.

So…questions.

When will mp be released?

How many maps?

How many players?

Can you customize your mp character?

Will it feature vehicles?

The game is released in 5 days….if you want people to preorder, maybe let us in on mp features.
The singleplayer will most likely be fun….for 2 weeks then the game will either collect duat or be traded in.

I bought and played the first two games in the series, really liked mp in sgw2.

    Hi!
    We’ve actually released some info about multiplayer a while ago, sorry you couldn’t get a reply!
    We’ve been focusing mostly on the singleplayer campaign in the game, so multiplayer will come as a free update a bit after launch.
    We will be releasing more detailed information in a few days!
    Thanks for playing the previous games, I really hope you’ll like Sniper 3 too!

Hello Devs,
I want to pre-order the game but only US Playstation Store has an extra pre-order bonus of a theme.

I am from Europe Playstation Store(from India to be specific). I would love to get that theme because of the beautiful song with it. Is there any way I can get that theme. Please reply quickly as I can pre-order the game.

Love ya.

First 2 games were horrible. I’m really hoping this one is good.

What Enhancements does the Pro version have? Graphical improvements? Framerate Improvements? I know HDR was added but what else

Is there a “men at work” trophy (from the Charlie Sheen and Emilo Estevez movie) when you make a butt shot?
