Sniper Elite 5 | Marksman Community Event

July 7th 2022

Calling all elite Snipers!

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. Simply play as you normally would to contribute to the 3 x 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!

Tracking your Progress

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 3 x targets needs attention.

Invasion Kills

Get AI kills in the standard campaign to contribute to this objective or embrace Invasion Mode to unlock max points for taking out your Axis opponent:

  • Invading Player Kills - 125 Points
  • Allied Player Kills - 50 Points
  • AI Killsx10 - 1 Points

Sniper Kills

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.

Headshot Kills Achieved: (1 point for every 10 metres)

Sharpshooter Kills

A sniper's work is solitary, silent and precise. Take out opponents in any game mode to contribute points to this objective. Hit specific body parts to achieve extra points...the testicle shot reigns supreme.

  • Testicle Shot - 15 points
  • Heart Shot – 5 points
  • Any other organ shot x10 – 1 point

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