Play OverviewPlay Overview

Sniper Elite 5 (2022) is the latest game in the shooting simulation series that focuses on tactical third-person combat, advanced gun physics, traversal and an enhanced slow motion kill camera. With realistic environments and real-world locations, customise your character and weapon combinations to fight your way to the ideal sniping location to take on your opponent.

You play in 1944 as part of a covert US Rangers operation to weaken the Atlantikwall fortifications along the coast of Brittany. Elite marksman Karl Fairburne makes contact with the French Resistance and uncovers a secret Nazi project that threatens to end the war before the Allies can even invade Europe: Operation Kraken.

Although this is a game about shooting enemy soldiers in the head, the attention to realism and detail make this as much a historical experience as entertainment. You need patience and planning as well as a steady hand and quick reactions. Real-world locations have been captured using photogrammetry and data modelling to recreate a living, immersive environment, and multiple infiltration and extraction points.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Sniper Elite 5 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 18 months ago.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 for strong violence. This game contains realistic violence, with blood effects used and characters falling to the ground when shot. Sometimes, the effects of bullets on a body are shown in slow-motion, with an 'X-ray' view of the character's body as the bullet passes through, puncturing organs and shattering bones. However, these images are anatomical in nature rather than particularly gory.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
