The German Sniper appears in the mission Vendetta in Call of Duty: World at War. As Viktor Reznov and Dimitri Petrenko are walking down the street in Stalingrad after escaping a German patrol, the sniper fires from across the river, hitting a sign above the two. Reznov and Petrenko dive into a nearby house, and after a brief firefight between Dimitri and the sniper, Dimitri wins and the two move on.

The Sniper is briefly mentioned by Alex Mason in a file found in Adrienne Smith's account on the CIA database recounting Reznov's actions during the war.
