Sniper Elite 5 update 1.13 introduces new weapons and a free multiplayer map

Rebellion Developments has kept the Sniper Elite 5 hype train going with regular content updates nearly six months after launch.

The latest update will see the addition of a free multiplayer map, new weapons and skins. As part of the first Season Pass, players can now get their hands on the Up Close and Personal DLCs. The multiplayer map introduced is the one players encountered in the campaign. Named Kraken’s Lair, the map is a bit different from others in its category. Unlike the vast expanses depicted on other maps, Kraken’s Lair is a narrow and claustrophobic map, forcing more close combat. Positioning will be key here as players will have to fight for better vantage points.

Read on for a full breakdown of the new update and the patch notes for the same.

Sniper Elite 5 Update 1.13 Patch Notes

What’s new in the update?

The new Kraken’s Lair map takes players back to the campaign’s Nazi submarine enclosure as it becomes a new battleground for multiplayer conflict. Skywalks provide excellent vantage points for snipers, while you can also fight on submarine decks and in the tight, confined spaces of hallways. This free map is now available to all players in multiplayer in Team Deathmatch, Free-For-All, and Squad Match game modes.

Up Close and Personal includes two powerful new weapons as well as a new “Tank Top” look for Karl and Monika. The Win & Co 1885 is a powerful rifle that, despite its limited rate of fire, houses a massive .50 caliber 50-110 cartridge that can take out any enemy with a single shot.

This is complemented by a new submachine gun, the ERMA.36. Featuring an integrated suppressor and high muzzle velocity, the ERMA.36 is a heavy, yet powerful stealth SMG.

What’s included in the Up Close and Personal Weapons and Skins Pack:

  • Win & Co 1885 – Weapons Pack (Rifle + Accessories)
  • ERMA.36 – Weapon Pack (submachine gun + attachments)
  • Tank Top – Character Skin (Karl and Monika Variants)
