  • How do I get involved in the Community Event?

    It's kill or be killed in our first ever Sniper Elite 5 Live Event. Think you've got what it takes to join us on the battlefield?


    Track the event here: https://sniperelite.com/marksman-event/ 


    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.


    The Targets

    Invasion Kills - 25 million points

    Unlocks P.K Berlin Axis scope for RSC 1918, G43 and Kar98k

    • Allied Player Kills - 50 Points
    • AI Killsx10 - 1 Points


    Sniper Kills - 130 million points

    M81 Ally scope for M1 Carbine and SREM

    Put your talent to the test with this objective. Achieve headshot kills across any game mode to earn points - the longer the shot, the more points you will receive.

    Sharpshooter Kills - 25 million points

    25% Discount on Sniper Elite Merchandise from our official Rebellion store.

    • Heart Shot – 5 points
    • Any other organ shot x10 – 1 point

These will be accessible to every player on Tuesday 26 July.

    Invasion mode is a brand new style of gameplay in Sniper Elite 5 that allows you to 'invade' another player's game as an Axis Sniper, or be 'invaded' as an Allied Sniper.

    The invading Axis Sniper has the sole aim to eliminate the player while the Allied Sniper gains an extra objective: take out the invader.
