Guide: "Eagle Eye" challenge



:+1: :sunglasses: I needed tier 4. It worked. Good spot


Very good bolt actions i like very much. I love to sneak around on the map and make some sniper action. My farthest Killshot was about 160 m from Himsundsbryggan to a runner that was standing on Lennarts Marin. I did this with my 5 star AK 4. But please Aesyle one question, what do you mean with Marksman specialisation becaus i have the same weapon as you EXP PVG90 with 8x16 scope and vision moduls xray and infrared?


Marksman specialization is an active skill that disables any aim sway when in ADS. (Combat group, left tree, 6th skill.) Without the specialization, you either have to lead your shots or counter the natural sway of crosshair. And the further the target is, the harder it is to accurately land hits on tiny targets like runner fuel tanks.


Thank you asyle for this explanation, yet i know. When you had a target in far distance and you have not this spezialisation then the weapon swung al little like in real live. My farthest shot in real live with a G3 (Automatgevär 4) was about 200 m and i hit my target with a steel scope. :grinning:


I haven’t fired any gun in real life but in GZ, my furthest kill shots, that i kept track of, are:

  1. 278m - .243 s-rifle + 4-8x scope (dropped a runner)
  2. 399m - .243 s-rifle + 6-12x scope (popped a seeker)
  3. 3.05km - .50 cal + 8-16x scope (it was according to the in-game stats. I have no idea who i shot since i didn’t keep track after i got my 399m kill shot done.)
  4. 3.40km - .50 cal + 8-16x scope (current longest distance kill shot according to the in-game stats.)


Wow, aesyle you really a sniper a killshot from 3.5 km is very far. :+1::+1::grinning:



I prefer playing as a sniper in GZ, which also explains the huge range kill shot(s) i have. And the Eagle Eye challenge was also the first one i completed out of the 5 new challenges in base game.


I like playing sniper too in this beutifull game. I often wearing the apple earpods pro with sound surpressing. The only thing i miss is that i feel the windchill when the wind blows and the smell of the salty air at the sea. I must not have a huge pack of robots. I often went back to Ibboholmen and go on my hunt especially in the night. :slightly_smiling_face:


Diesels pulled off a 4.6km kill, so if he shares where that spot was - I’ll post it here


Hehe this is funny, in my stats I got 716m - I have no clue where, when or what I shot :smiley:


Nice guide to T4 achievement ! :+1: It’s odd, even though the marker might say 390 meters, the shot registered for me at 411 meters. :thinking:


Waypoint placement isn’t that accurate, even when completely zooming in on map view. Hence the oddity in meters.


Pretty one @Aesyle

for my part I validated my success in this descent near the hotel opposite far away near the car there are 2/3 runners apocalypse 1 shot = 1 dead as we say

The video was not recorded I am disgusted … so I post you a picture of the place


Hehe I deliberately havent clicked this until now.
First I tried to get a Hunter standing at Lennarts Marin but he moved and never came back after I was in position.

I ended up also doing it in Tärnboda but from the other side.


I did try Tärnboda from the left side, starting from the top of the hill but trees got into the way. I gradually moved towards the coast (your position) but trees were constantly on the way. Though, i didn’t go all the way to the coast line (where you’re at) and abandoned the left side, opting to try it from the right side.


Is there currently a way to make the binoculars (with the tech mode on) register distance? I thought I remembered that they have the option but it never shows a number… also, @Aesyle do you have a picture of the outfit you earn from this challenge tree? I haven’t seen it yet.


I think it does have a distance thing but its broken for me, I never use it because it just doesn’t come up, You keep staring for ages and it doesn’t tell you it might be a bug or it take a long time for it to figure out distance :disappointed:


Yes. For that, you need a skill Spotting Intel level 2.

Yes. What i’ve unlocked so far is visible here: New Challenges and hazmat suit


I got 408m with the 6x-12 PVG X, exact spot Aesyle flagged.
