Sniper Elite 5 | Saboteur DLC & Free No-Cross Map
May 23rd 2023
Snipers, your loadout is due an upgrade. 🔫💥
The Saboteur Weapon & Skin Pack introduces two brand new devastating weapons to your arsenal. Including the lightweight, rapid fire TERA rifle and the versatile, low-recoil Grease Gun. Not only that, but Karl dons a brand new look with the French Resistance-inspired Liberator character skin.
Plus, the FREE No-Cross Map Rhine Crossing is now available across all platforms.
The TERA rifle was a lightweight adaptation of the Type 38 which was originally designed for Japanese Paratroopers. It provides a rapid rate of fire with good accuracy thanks to its low levels of recoil.
Featuring a folding stock for improved portability, the TERA is incredibly fast to equip and aim down the sight.
The Grease Gun SMG has great mobility that is very easy to control, even under sustained firing, thanks to its low rate of fire and recoil.
Despite its low muzzle velocity, the stability and control on offer make it a solid choice for slightly longer ranged combat encounters.
With your weapon cache freshly stocked, players can also now enjoy a fresh new look for Karl Fairburne with the Liberator Skin. Celebrating the liberation of Paris, Karl can now don the classic French Resistance guise adorned with signature armband.
FREE No-Cross Map:
We know our community love No-Cross as much as we do! So for those looking to dive back into multiplayer, the FREE No-Cross map Rhine Crossing is now available across all platforms.
Based on the battle of Remagen at the Ludendorff Bridge in Germany, the new map is set at night and the iconic towers on the collapsed bridge offer the highest vantage points on either side of the No Cross zone.
With diagonal sightlines across the corners of the map and cover offered by the remains of the bridge, players will have to embrace the shadows and make use of the dark to prevail.
