British developer Rebellion’s Zombie Army 4: Dead War is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One (no plans for Nintendo Switch just yet). As such, it’s time for the first of the Zombie Army 4 Weekly Events, which look set to introduce plenty of new and exciting ways to dispatch of Nazi zombies on a weekly basis. The inaugural weekly event references the popular Sniper Elite series — a Rebellion stablemate alongside Dead War — and will excitingly offer players infinite ammo in their rifles.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War‘s first weekly event presents players with infinite rifle ammunition, which sounds great, but, in order to counterbalance this clear advantage, you won’t be able to take a secondary weapon into battle. Secondary weapons are vital for handling close-proximity encounters, of which there are sure to be many when hordes of Nazi zombies are perpetually shambling your way.
When announcing this event, the official Zombie Army 4: Dead War Twitter account (@zombiearmy) asked: “Can you pick off your foes from a distance before they pick you apart?”

The tweet also revealed what precise combination of modifiers players can expect to encounter:
Zombie Army 4: Dead War | Sniper Elite Weekly Event modifiers
- No secondary weapon
- Infinite rifle ammo
- Increased critical hit chance
“Increased critical hit chance” should certainly help to even the odds, allowing those with the truest aim to drop powerful zombie variants before they get close by utilizing headshots. If you manage to beat the Sniper Elite Weekly Event in Zombie Army 4, you’ll be rewarded in-game with 2,000 XP and the White Paint rifle skin.
It isn’t yet known what Zombie Army 4 Weekly Events will come next, though giving the @zombiearmy Twitter account a follow should keep you abreast of things. You can also stick with GameRevolution for more Zombie Army 4: Dead War coverage.
