Sharpshooter - Banner 2.jpg

In order to get the Sharpshooter Trophy, you must get a higher score than Manny at the gun range during the Seattle Day 1 - Stadium. You will have 9 shots available during this mini-game, and each shot will give you points depending on how close to the center your shot is.

On average, Manny will score somewhere around 83 points with his 9 shots, so you'll need to aim a little higher than that in order to get this trophy.

Using Auto-Target

Chest Shots

Try to aim for chest during this mini-game. They will both give you 10 points for each hit, even though the red mark on the chest is slightly bigger than the red mark on the head.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
