In the first Sniper Elite, there's a mission where you start off next to an airfield. On the oooother side of the airfield is at least one soldier you can just barely see. With a bit of experimentation, requiring you to aim about an inch or two above and to a side of him, you can land a shot over 1000 meters away. The cinematic alone takes about 30 seconds if I remember.
What game is this? Looks pretty kewl
Sniper Elite series is awesome. Just started V2 the other day, after having played through SE3. I also enjoyed Sniper Ghost Warrior 2. Never played the third in the series. But for the love of all that is holy avoid the first game in the series. The AI is atrocious and can snipe you with machine gun fire from any distance.
For a proper challenge try playing on Authentic. Totally different game!
