Sniper 3D Assassin asks players to kill a journalist in the “Breaking News” mission



A popular mobile video game features a mission where players are tasked with killing a journalist. It says it would “make him famous in a different way”.

Sniper 3D Assassin is available on iOS and Android. It has a rating of about four-and-a-half stars, with a combined 12 million reviews on both platforms.

The mission in which a journalist is set for assassination is called “Breaking News” and it calls on the player to kill someone who bribed a police officer for information.

“A journalist bribed a cop and will pick up a briefcase from the cop,” the mission says. “The briefcase is full of sensitive documents. Make him famous in a different way.”

To get to this mission, you must first kill a gunman who allegedly killed several people at a pizzeria last year, someone who stole a backpack from a tourist, a sniper who is killing innocent people, and three men who were guarding a gang’s weapon arsenal.
