Lock and load for Sniper Elite 5’s debut Community Event where we’ll be putting your skills to the test on the frontlines from Monday 11 July, 3pm BST to Monday 25th July, 3pm BST.
How It Works
Simply play as you normally would to contribute to the three targets we’ve challenged you with – if you complete all 3 targets within the two week deadline, the Community will collectively unlock exclusive in-game rewards and more!
Unlike our previous Evil Genius 2 Community Events, this event operates on a point-based system. We’ll reward each of you a set number of points depending on the type of kill you achieve – that’s right, we won’t reward you for just any old kill! This will require patience, precision and above all else, the collaborative efforts of the Sniper Elite community.
Keep an eye on this webpage to keep track of how you’re progressing as a Community, that way you can shift your focus based on which of our three targets needs attention.
