Siwa Oasis is completable on all discrete difficulty settings, including authentic (when you just need to “stare” at the hand of the officer for a few seconds). BUT it won’t be completable on custom difficulty IF you remove binocular help until the next patch.

For the time being, you can choose the difficulty per level so we’d recommend to play that particular level in a different difficulty setting, or put the tactical assistance to moderate for that level only. You can then resume the custom setting on the next level.

There is no direct achievement tied to custom settings, so you’re not really missing out anything.

So basically, I have to redo the whole three hours and 15 mins of creeping around, taking out all the enemy because of a bug??? How long till the fix for this becomes available?

Authentic with no saves, or playing with the Red Diamond.... Great Choice. I'll wait the month for the patch, thank you.

Is it now coming to your official attention that maybe someone should've play-tested the game on all difficulty settings?

I have been stuck at this point on 360 now for some time. Even with this thread I'm still not sure what to do.

I go back in and figure it out, that's how it works.

BUT, and this is dumb luck. When I first got in the compound I put down and Infantry Mine; guess what path it was in? The exact path the Officer walks to get the Notebook, so next time around I had to go Y the Mine and back up top to watch the meeting.

What kind of luck is that?

Assuming you were just curious, and not trying to excuse the fact that this game, being a finished product, should work on ANY difficulty setting, I play on custom occasionally because the only other mode I enjoy playing is Authentic. I enjoy Authentic mode because I like aiming for myself, as opposed to letting the game do it for me. I do, however, enjoy saving the game and replaying especially fun parts a few times, or just seeing how I could've done them differently.

This tagging thing has been a known issue for a couple years now. I'm very surprised that we're still dealing with it in one form or another.

To turn off all assistance except saves..
the way the Sniper Elite difficulty setting should have been set up!

I have completed the campaign and all DLC on authentic a few times now,I found that to tag I had to keep the bino's on the target until the tag came on,this can take a little time.but it will kick in.I now only wish, they would bring Authentic to MP,but I think I will have traded the game in,before that happens.Another way to complete the misson,is to play a co-op with a player who already completed it and get them to host,this should unlock it for you,I have done it for a couple of guys and it worked for them.

if playing on Authentic mode or custom without tagging, just focus your binoculars on the correct officer.
