Sniper Elite 5 Recover Stolen Antiques is the only optional objective you need to finish during the Occupied Residence Mission to earn one of the three stars.
These Stolen Antiques you need to recover count towards your collectibles collection under the Hidden Items category.
Throughout this guide, we will offer you detailed directions on where to find the stolen artifacts and how to obtain them.
Where To Find The Occupied Residence Stolen Antiques In Sniper Elite 5
Sniper Elite 5 Occupied Residence Stolen Antiques can be found in the northern part of the map, inside and around the Chateau Estate.
As the category name says, these Stolen Antiques are items well hidden in secret locations, behind paintings, inside locked crates, and held by specific soldiers.
So, following the same order as the one on the map above, here is how to recover the 3 Occupied Residence Stolen Antiques in the video game developed by Rebellion for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
How To Recover Stolen Antiques #1 In Occupied Residence
You will start the Occupied Residence Mission in Sniper Elite 5 in the Resistance Camp at the southernmost point of the map.
As you make your way through the Nazi Camps along the eastern road, passing the small river and forest, you will reach the Chateau Estate Courtyard, well packed with soldiers.
Crouch and try to reach the gate of the courtyard without being detected.
As you get close to the entrance, you will notice a flashing light coming from the tower of the northwestern building.
That’s the light coming from a sniper’s scope aiming in your direction.
Here you have two choices: either try to take him out using a silenced weapon or make your way through the courtyard dealing with the patrolling soldiers and reaching the tower.
Also, you can use the silenced weapon to take the Dead Eye Target Stone Eagle on top of the building, as you can see in the image above.
Once you kill the sniper and reach the tower, search his body in order to receive the first Occupied Residence Stolen Antique.
There’s also a Personal Letter for you to collect on the chest next to the window.
How To Recover Stolen Antiques #2 In Occupied Residence
The next Occupied Residence Hidden Item is inside the Chateau Estate, on the third floor.
Try to make your way through the chateau without alarming the whole building because they will keep coming at you from all directions.
I would advise disabling the alarm in the middle of the chateau courtyard by using a silenced weapon to avoid alarming the whole building.
Also, since you are navigating through a building, use the Focus Skill to see where the soldiers are to avoid them or take them out quietly using a silenced pistol or SMG.
Look for the stairs to reach the third floor in the middle southern part of the chateau.
At the top of the stairs, head inside the first opened room on the right (we marked it in the image above).
Watch out for the soldier inside the room and quickly kill him with a melee attack.
Inside the room, there is a crate that you need to open using a lockpick or bolt cutters to recover stolen antiques.
Also, there is another Personal Letter on the table to the right of the crate for you to collect.
How To Recover Stolen Antiques #3 In Occupied Residence Mission
The last Occupied Residence Hidden Item in Sniper Elite 5 is a bit trickier to find being well hidden, but I got your back.
From Abelard Moller’s Office, turn left and head toward the northwestern end of the Chateau Estate (check the image below for better representation).
Head inside through the second doorway to the left and immediately turn right into a bedroom.
Right away, you will find another Personal Letter on top of a crate in front of the bed.
On the left of the bed, you will notice a painting that you can interact with.
Behind the painting, there’s a safe that can be opened in two ways: using a Satchel Charge or using the code learned from Intel information (one of the Personal Letters).
If you need a Satchel Charge, you can find one in the Chateau Cellars, which can be accessed either from a stairway off the ballroom or a ramp leading down to the southern end of the main estate courtyard.
Inside the safe, you can recover the final stolen antique alongside some subsonic ammo.
And that’s how you complete the Occupied Residence Recover Stolen Antiques in Sniper Elite 5. If you have any questions or suggestions, leave them in the comments section below.
