Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has 3 different playstyles that you can choose from, which are Sniper, Ghost and Warrior. While different situations call for different styles, you usually can just pick your favorite style and use that for most of the game. However, each style also comes with its own skill tree with several abilities for you to unlock, and this guide will detail each one.
There are 9 abilities to unlock in each of the game’s skill trees, with there being 3 abilities per tier. Earning 1000 XP will earn you a new skill point to put towards the respective skill tree you earned it for. You need to make your way through the first tier to get to the second and third, but you don’t need to unlock every single ability to unlock the next tier. The game’s pretty generous with the amount of skill points it gives you, so you shouldn’t have much of a problem getting through at least most of the skill trees during a standard playthrough.
