** Every sniper rifle has a "muzzle velocity" stat that determines how badly they're affected by bullet drop. On the Sniper Elite difficulty the stats also determine how severely the bullet is affected by the wind. You'll experience bullet drop no matter what rifle you use, but it'll be more or less pronounced depending on muzzle velocity.

** Every sniper rifle has a "muzzle velocity" stat that determines how badly they're affected by bullet drop. On the Sniper Elite difficulty the stats also determine how severely the bullet is affected by the wind. You'll experience bullet drop no matter what rifle you use, but it'll be more or less pronounced depending on muzzle velocity. Suffice it to say, this isn't how it works in real life[[note]] Muzzle velocity is the speed of the bullet at the moment it leaves the barrel (hence, ''"muzzle"''). Its ballistic properties after that are affected by bullet weight (heavier bullets retain more energy due to greater inertia), bullet shape (aerodynamics), internal design (center of gravity affecting stability), the rifling of the barrel (how fast the bullet spins in flight; too fast or too slow destabilizes the round in flight. Different loads, even in the same caliber, will have a "sweet spot," so the marksman needs to know as much about his ammo as he does about his rifle), and that's before we get into all of the many variables of atmosphere (temperature, humidity, air density, and whatnot) and slope of the shot (you have to aim higher when shooting uphill, lower for downhill shots)[[/note]].

* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: Some Russians carry Lugers in the base game. It's also pretty jarring to be able to find ammo for the Mosin-Nagant on the bodies of German soldiers. DLC weapons make it even worse, where with the right ones German and Soviet soldiers may now have British .303 or even ''Japanese 7.7mm rounds'' on them.

DLC weapons make it even worse, throw plausibility out the window, where with the right ones German and Soviet soldiers may now have British .303 or even ''Japanese 7.7mm Arisaka rounds'' on them.

* EvilVersusEvil: It's UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and UsefulNotes/NaziGermany versus UsefulNotes/JosefStalin and the [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet Union]]. And you are caught in the crossfire, as an American agent sent to secure secrets and kill Nazi scientists.

* HistoricalInJoke: The "Kill Hitler" mission consists in sniping Hitler while he is in the Alps. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Foxley Something similar had really been imagined by the Allies]], though it was a British planand involved a pair of operatives instead of a single one.

** Also, it is possible to shoot an enemy in the testicles, often accompanied by an X-Ray cam of the gonads bursting like eggs. This will kill the target instantly [[note]]Sudden outbursts of extreme pain can indeed prove lethal in real life due to reflexogenic cardiac arrest[[/note]].

The story takes place in Germany during the final days of WWII and the player must navigate and fight their way through a city crawling with both Nazi and Soviet troops. As part of the [[ShownTheirWork Operation Paperclip]] program, Karl must find and identify several German scientists who want to defect away from the crumbing Nazi regime, killing the ones who join the Soviets and protecting the ones joining the Americans. Partway through his mission, though, he discovers that the Soviet-leaning scientists have decided to prove their loyalty to Stalin by using their '''Wunderwaffe''' against an unsuspecting target, and Karl must now fight his own ostensible allies to stop them.
