Currently, Rebellion has not released the official list of changes and fixes just yet, but the community has weighed in on it and confirmed that it’s mostly for bug fixes.

According to Steam users, there are a handful of fixes in multiplayer, inclusion of a Shooting Range and that’s it. On the known issues thread, which was last updated on June 27, here are the ones listed by Rebellion:

Known Issues:

  • M08 St Nazaire, Kill list challenge failed before killing the target – Please note, this is just a visual error, so if the objective is not yet completed then the challenge is not actually failed and can still be achieved.
  • Alarms are not turning off as expected once triggered by enemy AI
  • No Stone Unturned Achievement Not Unlocking – As a short-term fix, using the loud/explosive methods instead of the stealth ones will unlock this achievement.
    Missing Crosshairs – Initial investigations appear to show this issue is caused by too little VRAM (e.g. under the 4gb min spec). As a temporary solution, we suggest reducing the texture quality settings to see if that helps (e.g. start at LOW).
  • GPU Device was lost – A small number of players seem to be experiencing an issue which throws up the GPU Device was lost error. We are aware of the problem and are investigating.
  • Windows Store Crash – (On Steam for Visibility purposes) – Windows Store Crash – We are still investigating the 20006 Windows error appearing for some players. If this is happening to you, we advise carrying out the following steps:
  • – Check One: Head to Sniper Elite 5 in the Xbox App – Head to the three dots – Click manage – Then Files – Then select Verify and repair – Hit yes
  • – Check Two: Ensure your Xbox App is completely up to date
  • – Check Three: If that still doesn’t work, unticking ‘Use EAC’ in the options menu accessed via the cog, and running as admin via the start menu to allow access. We think this could be a platform issue for those who pre-installed so would recommend uninstalling and installing again if the above does not resolve the issue.
  • As a final note, we’re now asking players if Sniper Elite 5 is saved to C:XboxGames. Knowing this would greatly help our investigation.

Performance Issues – We are aware of multiple reports of gameplay appearing to ‘stutter’ and frame rates dropping despite playing above Minimum Spec. If this is something you are experiencing, please TRIPLE check you’re playing above minimum spec (if playing on PC) and try running on DX12, Not Vulkan:
What are the minimum PC requirements?
Minimum Specifications are as follows:
OS: Windows 10
Processor: Intel CPU Core i3-8100 (or AMD equivalent)
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX12 capable GPU with 4GB VRAM
Storage: 85GB

Chances are, we’ll see the official patch notes surface later today, and once we do, we’ll be sure to update the post
