Jägers are a new enemy type introduced in Sniper Elite 4.
Jägers can be distinguished from Infantry by their heavier equipment loadouts, paratrooper helmets and camo pattern uniforms. They are far more aggressive in chasing down the player, often work in groups of 2-5 based on gameplay experience and they can take more damage during combat aswell. Although not as talkative as normal Infantry, they have a raspier and deeper voice that can be used as a means of detection before seeing them.
Jägers come in two variations: regular, and support.
Regular Jägers are similar to Infantry, except with improved behavior, accuracy, durability and will almost always be armed with the MKb 42 They will often choose to chase down the player rather than cower behind cover when they are under attack.
Support Jägers are always armed with the FG 42s and behave differently from regular Jägers, staying behind their allies and laying down covering fire.
Jägers are less of a priority target than other special enemies such as Radio Operators or Officers, but should be taken out before engaging Infantry.
