Heer infantry return functioning similar to how they did in Sniper Elite V2, and Sniper Elite III.


Infantry wear grey tunics wearing the standard Stalhelm (steel helmet). They either wear standard issue helmets, netted helmets or helmets with woodland camo, Sometimes they wear field caps. Heer infantry appear in almost every mission of the game. There's also the engineer version that had the same weapons like the Heer.

They use weapons such as the Kar98, the MP40, the Gewehr 43 as well as a Walther P38 pistol.


Officers wear grey uniforms, usually adorned with the German Iron Cross medal. They don't participate in combat, unless in close quarters. They are equipped with the Luger P08, and some have collectibles on them.


Snipers wear the brown khaki camouflage, had a hood on top of the cap and wear the balaclava mask. They held Kar98k or Gewehr 43 as their sniper rifles, and the secondary weapons are SMGs which is the MP40 or the FNAB. Same as other sniper from previous games.
