Sniper Elite 5 | Marksman Trailer

Calling all snipers to the front,

A sharpshooter must get to know his weapon inside out, and it’s time for you to get to know yours.

Take a sneak peak at the authentic World War 2 weaponry available in Sniper Elite 5, in the brand new Marksman gameplay trailer, captured completely in game engine, here.

Launching simultaneously on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 4 & 5, Epic, Steam and Windows Store on May 26th, Sniper Elite 5 features a comprehensive suite of weaponry with the most customisation and attachments ever seen in the franchise’s history. 

With over 200 options, including items such as scopes, suppressors, stocks, muzzle breaks, materials and more, snipers will be able to adjust their loadout to suit their playstyle and the objectives they face in each mission. 

Weapon Attachments and Customisation Options are primarily unlocked by finding Workbenches within each of the levels. As different elements are added, removed or adapted the changes will be reflected in four key weapon stats: Power, Rate of Fire, Control and Mobility. A stealthy player may want to opt for power and rate of fire at the cost of control and mobility due to their methodical approach, while the opposite will be true for a more “run and gun” style player.

“Sniper Elite has always been defined by its authentic gunplay and we wanted to take that to the next level for Sniper Elite 5,” commented Jason Kingsley, CEO, Rebellion. “We have concentrated on enhancing the character and feel of our weapons, including the addition of an ‘Ironsights’ perspective for pistols and secondary weapons such as SMGs.

“Having conducted thousands of hours of playtests over the course of the franchise, it is clear that everyone plays the game in their own, unique way. That is why we have developed the new Weapon Customisation system, allowing players to adapt their weapons to best suit the way they play and ensure that everyone enjoys the experience.”

The latest instalment also includes the addition of an ‘Ironsights’ perspective for pistols and secondary weapons such as SMGs, so you’ll be closer than ever to the action and the weapons you’ll come to rely on.
