Rough Landing Mission and Weapons Pack:
Playable in both single player and co-op, Rough Landing is the latest thrilling mission in the Sniper Elite 5 campaign. Allied airmen have been shot down over a dense forest and are now in hiding as they are being hunted by Nazi forces. It’s down to you to find and rescue the airmen and ensure that valuable intelligence is kept out of enemy hands. Featuring thick woodland, a cramped mine shaft and a village to explore, expect a variety of challenges, including close quarters combat.
To help you rescue the airmen you will receive two new weapons: the Mosin-Nagant rifle and Sjögren shotgun. A famously powerful and reliable Russian rifle, the Mosin-Nagant has excellent stopping power and great stability, making it an excellent sniper rifle at very long range. Meanwhile the 12G Swedish Sjögren Inertia was one of the first semi-automatic shotguns. It has a distinctive feel to its recoil, which can be controlled to deliver accurate shots at a reasonable rate of fire.
This pack is available as part of Season Pass Two or as a standalone purchase.
Included in this pack:
- Rough Landing campaign mission
- Mosin-Nagant rifle
- Sjögren shotgun
Trench Warfare Weapons Pack
This free Weapons Pack gives you some devastating firepower geared towards close quarters combat.
The Carl Gustav M/1945, better known as the Swedish K, was adopted in 1945, taking features from various World War II firearms to produce a reliable and well-balanced sub-machine gun. Firing at 600 rounds-per-minute, the Gustav provides accurate single shots, whilst also offering great control in continuous fire.
A powerful pump-action shotgun, the Trench Gun first saw use by US Forces during World Wars I & II. Fed with 12-gauge shells from its six-round tube magazine, it sacrifices range and fire rate for extreme damage in close quarters.
Finally, the Double 1866 is a double-barrel pocket pistol designed in the 19th century as an easily concealable backup gun that can be drawn at speed. Despite only featuring a single-action trigger and producing a very low muzzle velocity, the D.1866s unique traits make for a powerful weapon at close range.
Included in this pack:
- Carl Gustav M/1945 SMG
- Trench Gun shotgun
- Double 1866 pistol
