The latest content pack for Sniper Elite 5 called Death from Above is now available for those who have Season Pass Two. It can also be purchased separately for $9.99.

Sniper Elite 5: Death from Above contains a lot of goodies. The new Pedersen Rifle is a weapon with slightly lower damage than Gewehr 1943 but it is a good alternative because of its amazing stability. Snipers can make good use of this relatively accurate gun, particularly in mid-range encounters. The problem with the Pedersen rifle is it can only be fitted with iron sights, which means it is not the best option when taking out enemies at great distances.

Included in the Death from Above DLC is the British Dazzle weapon skin for all firearms in Sniper Elite 5. This content pack pays homage to the dazzle camouflage design used on British tanks during desert campaigns.
