How to unlock all character skins in Sniper Elite 5

Four different modes are available in Sniper Elite 5, which you can use different Skins and Headgear. Each mode has its own requirements for unlocking specific Skins or Headgear. In the following sections, we will explain how to unlock each Skin and Headgear, as well as how to access this menu if you are unfamiliar.

It is important to keep in mind that these are purely cosmetic and that no skin gives you more or fewer abilities. Some cosmetic skins blend in better than others, so it may be best to unlock those that blend in better.
