Secret Weapons Workbenches in Sniper Elite 5 can become a challenge to find if you are not the type of person to do a lot of exploring around and mainly focus on the primary objectives. But Workbenches can be pretty important to find and collect to expand your collectibles collection and the loadout customization possibilities.
Where To Find the Secret Weapons Workbenches in Sniper Elite 5
Secret Weapons Workbenches can be found in one Resistance Safehouse and two nazi armories, one inside the underground level of the Dome and the other one in the Lake Research Compound. Even with the exact location on the map, it can still be difficult to find the Workbench without some indications.
Workbench #1 (Pistol)
After you start Secret Weapons Mission from the Facility Overlook starting location, proceed ahead until you see a shack across the railroad and a nazi soldier. Take him out, climb up the stairs, and follow the road to the west (left) until you reach a bridge.
Just before the bridge, there is a dirt slope on the left that will take you right under the bridge. Immediately turn left at the bottom of the slope to find a cave entrance hidden behind vines and blocked with wooden planks.
Dismantle the barricade and enter the cave to find your first Workbench right under the Resistance flag.
Workbench #2 (SMG)
The next Workbench is in the northern part of the map, inside the Dome, where you have to infiltrate during the main objective. There are many ways to get inside the Dome: brute-forcing your way in or trying a stealth approach to avoid fighting all elite nazi soldiers and tiger tanks. This is up to you.
After you inspect the Kraken plans during the main objective, you will have to infiltrate the underground refueling site. From the Main Gate of the Dome, proceed north to the center of the room where the V2 rocket is and find a circular stairway that will take you to the underground site.
Halfway down, on the right, there will be a narrow hallway with a locked door by the end of it. Unlock the door using the Master Dome Key or blow it up using a Satchel Charge. Inside the nazi armory, you will find the second Secret Weapons Workbench.
Workbench #3 (Rifle)
The final Workbench in Sniper Elite 5 can be found in the Lake Research Compound, in the northernmost building. After sabotaging the V2 refueling site during the main objective, proceed west to the Lake Research Compound, where you have another main objective to sabotage the capsule release hatch on the lake.
Once you reach the Lake Research Compound, go north past the yellow rockets and the control room on the right until you see the armory with the door opened. Inside, you will find a lot of supplies that will help you to destroy the nearby nazi gunboat and the final Workbench.
