How to Zoom In With the Sniper Rifle in Hitman 2: Sniper Assassin

Have you pre-ordered Hitman 2 and got your hands on the game’s Sniper Assassin content, but are stuck figuring out how to zoom in with your sniper rifle?

Fear not, we’ve got you covered. Zooming in with the sniper rifle in Hitman 2: Sniper Assassin is easy – once you know how.

Once you’ve raised your rifle, you can zoom in two more times. Here’s how to do that:

On the PS4 and Xbox One: To zoom in, simply press up on the directional pad on your controller, and press down to zoom out.

On the PC: Use the directional pad if you’re using a joypad. If you’re using keyboard and mouse controls, use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. If your mouse doesn’t have a mouse wheel then you’ll need to go to the options menu to assign zoom to another pair of buttons.

You can upgrade your rifle by completing in-game challenges but, you’re stuck with the three zoom levels that the rifle offers.

He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
