On the mission: Return To St. Petersburg, when I try to use the SVD Sniper Rifle on an enemy, the bullets pass right through them. No blood, nothing. If anyone else has experienced this, please let me know I'm not the only one. Thanks.

That's a new one on me. Anyone else?

Now, I don't want to cast aspertions on your eyesight, but is it possible you're... missing the targets?

I'm positive that I'm hitting the targets

i don't want to spoil the level, but will just say this.
The SVD is not supposed to work.
The ammo you pick up are blanks.
Try killing the target another way, and it will all make sense.

Well, I got the same problem, my sniper doesn't hit, but the problem is normally diana or someone would say something about the fact that you're not hitting them. Because now we are supposed to know it's not a real guy we have to go there and kill the other one off. What do you guys think?

Dante - that explains my earlier ignorance. I'm still only playing through for the first time, and I misread the "RETURN" part of "Return to St. Petersburg."

Huh?

The SVD works fine for me...

Maybe it has something to do with how you accomplish the first mission.....hmmm.....maybe.....gonna try that...

Btw, i got silent assassin on first level, well, i knew it from the demo so it was easy just getting SA, will try getting another ranking and see if the SVD works or not.

The reason is: The Target is a fake, Just a paper man. This mission is a trap, the agency want you go there to die.

The real Target is Mr.17, your "Brother". He is in a room beside the room of the Fake.
