How hard are the Authentic+ trophies from 1-10? With multiplayer and all by yourself.

Really depends on how good you are at sniping on that difficulty. If you are great at sniping and can reliably take out enemies around a 200meter distance, it becomes somewhat easy because you can kill key figures in several missions from afar abusing walkthrough routes and leave the map early, or go the murder route and just kill from a distance by shooting and relocating until most of them are dead, which is doable because the number of possible enemies is limited after all. I'd say killing everyone takes time but can be as low as a 3 if you are great at sniping, not much that can really go wrong here, following the route and landing the tricky shots might be a bit harder, with things potentially going wrong a bit more often, but here you still look at 4 or 5 depending on the map.

However if you are like me and can't figure the sniping part on authentic+ out to save your life so even shoots at 50 meters become a gamble for you with wind, and if you try without manual saves, then you are easily looking at 8 or higher because going the stealth route with melee and pistol, or open firefights, can kill you at any point and make you lose all your progress for that mission over and over again, which is why I decided that I could not be bothered doing it, too much for me.

The levels individual difficulties highly depend on your sniping skills and your knowledge of the map, mission 3 for example can be a big pain in the ass if you don't know much about it but becomes the easiest mission in the game if you know your way around it. The overall difficulty can be brought down a lot if you know someone who is good at sniping, or willing to abuse the system a bit with you to make things easier.

Solo is something I do not recommend, unless you know EVERYTHING (spawns, objectives, etc) 7-8/10. 

 

Coop and if both of you are decent I say around 4-5/10.  Lower if you lot are very VERY good shots. 

 

 

The hardest missions are 1 and 6.  I soloed 4 and 5 and did 1-3 with a partner that was alright and then 6-8 with someone at my skill level, it was lots of fun.

its pretty ridiculous i was just trying it. even when you snipe a guy right in front of you they seem to just get right back up and kill you.you have no clue at all where your shots are going and like i said even with a guy in front of you your bullet can just completely miss him leaving him able to kill you instantly.

I cant speak for multiplayer because I did it solo, but I can say it is one of the hardest gaming challenges I have done in terms of skill. You will need to practice sniping, because you cant afford to mess up. Anything up to 200 meters can be done reliably, after that there is enough bullet variation that you will miss as much as hit. Stealth is mostly useless. They can hear silenced weapons, and they can hear melee kills. I found the best bet for most levels was to set up a kill house and fight from there. Put mines down, make sure there are only an entrance or two, go loud and snipe them as they come to you. Take a normal pistol and a good smg, you will need the ammo. Bring as many healing items as you can. You cant see your health so you need to get a feel for how much damage you have taken. You cant use a healing items if you are on full health so you don't need to worry about that. Loot every corpse, know where all the items are, no the objectives as you wont be told where they are on the map. Be patient, when they are all dead there are at least a dozen more. Leave cover, make noise, hide, wait, wait more, keep waiting, oh look its 12 more guys. It can take them several minutes to show themselves, don't rush. Nothing is worse then getting gunned down by 3 guys because you did not wait. Expect to spend between 1 and 2 hours per level when all goes well. Expect to spend 10s of hours before all goes well. It took me near 2 months daily play to get this done. This is not on the level of games like super meat boy or necro dancer, anyone can do it you will just need the patience and the will to not smash a controller. If you can get a friend to do it co-op then that will make it a lot better, but I remember reading that the trophies could be buggy for the non host.

Me and a good friend are running through this on co-op - unless you are an expert in the Sniper Elite series do not attempt to do this solo. It's always useful to have that second player there to revive you if mistakes are made (and they tend to happen 2 or 3 times each mission on this difficulty setting).

I just finished the game with an authentic plus and I have to say it wasn't that hard. Learn how to use a sniper in a shooting range and you should be fine.

Difficulty 4/10 (My personal opinion)
