Jägers are a new enemy type introduced in Sniper Elite 4 .
Jägers can be distinguished from Infantry by their heavier equipment loadouts, paratrooper helmets and camo pattern uniforms. They are far more aggressive in chasing down the player, often work in groups of 2-5 based on gameplay experience and they can take more damage during combat as well. Although not as talkative as normal Infantry, they have a raspier and deeper voice that can be used as a means of detection before seeing them.
JägerEditRegular Jägers are similar to Infantry, except with improved behavior, accuracy, durability and will almost always be armed with the MKB-42s They will often choose to chase down the player rather than cower behind cover when they are under attack. sometime Jägers can be seen with scoped weapons such as Kar98s and G43s, when close the take out MKB-42s. Some are equipped with Luger P08s and Walther P38s. A rare variant is equipped with the Trench Gun.
Support JägerEditSupport Jägers are always armed with FG 42s and behave differently from regular Jägers, staying behind their allies and laying down covering fire the FG 42 they use seems to be for distance as when the player is close they will take out either a Luger P08, or a Walther P38.
Jägers are less of a priority target than other special enemies such as Radio Operators or Officers, but should be taken out before engaging infantry.
- Jäger is German for "Hunter"
