* AllUpToYou: Unlike the ''Far Cry'' series from ''Far Cry 3'' onward (or many other similar-themed open world games like ''VideoGame/HomefrontTheRevolution'' or ''VideoGame/GhostReconWildlands''), there are no friendly rebel troops on the world map, so the game consists of just you going up against the entire Separatist army.

* HeavilyArmoredMook: Separatist Heavy Armor soldiers are slow-moving opponents who wear [[CallofDutyModernWarfare Juggernaut]]-like suits of heavy armor and fight with light machine guns. Their armor lets them soak well over 100 rounds of assault rifle fire or several sniper rifle torso shots and also makes them immune to melee takedowns, but they can be instantly killed with headshots and are also vulnerable to armor-piercing sniper ammo or being shot in the back (or, oddly enough, pistol rounds, which can kill them in just a dozen shots or so for some reason). One variant wears a ballistic mask that can deflect one or two headshots before breaking, but can still be killed with a single shot to the back of the head.

* ReligiousBruiser: Jon is a highly skilled Marine sniper who's pretty explicitly indicated to be a devote Christian (although [[NotUsingTheZWord the word "Christian" is never actually used at any point in the game]]), in contrast to his brother Robert who's heavily implied to be agnostic or atheist. Armazi even gives Jon a villain speech about death and resurrection at one point in the game.

The story takes place in the disputed Northwest region of Georgia, in which U.S. marine sniper Jon North is tasked with waging a one-man guerrilla campaign against the Russian-aligned separatists that have taken control of the region. However, Jon's primary reason for taking the assignment is to search for his younger brother Robert, who was kidnapped by mysterious elite mercenaries 23 months prior to the events of the game and was recently sighted in the region. In the process, he stumbles upon a secretive international conspiracy and finds himself facing off against a mysterious, seemingly superhuman enemy sniper known as Armazi.

A [[WideOpenSandbox open world]] FirstPersonShooter and the third game in the ''VideoGame/SniperGhostWarrior'' series by Polish developers CI Games (formerly City Interactive). It's notable for being the first game by CI Games with a AAA level budget. The game uses the [=CryEngine=] and seems heavily influenced by the ''VideoGame/FarCry'' series in terms of design and gameplay. Like the previous games in the series, ''Sniper Ghost Warrior 3'' uses semi-realistic sniper mechanics such as having to compensate for bullet drop and wind deflection. New to the series is the ability to manually adjust the elevation of your scope based on distance-to-target to compensate for bullet drop.

* AKA47: To the point of a few weapons actually having their calibers and relative stats be completely different from their real-life equivalents for balancing reasons. Bonus points for the AK-47 assault rifle (actually an [=AKM=] if you're going to be nitpicky) ''actually being called'' an AKA-47.

** [=LOKI=] mercenaries in ''The Sabotage'' DLC. Despite having their own databank entry which seems to build them up as some sort of EliteMooks, they only appear in one side mission and aren't noticeably tougher than standard Mooks.


** The Separatists routinely engage in war crimes that would be worthy of the ''Nazi S.S.'' Later in the game this is somewhat hand-waved when it's indicated the dominant Separatist leader is a SocialDarwinist secretly in league with [[spoiler: the 23 Society]], and his leadership is part of the reason the Separatists are so brutal.
