Alternate Timeline Edit
Near the end of the Second World War, Germany is facing defeat at the hand to the Allies. Unwilling to allow Germany to fall. Hitler takes a final desperate gamble. He uses the Sagarmatha relic to unleash occult forces to raise the dead, as zombies, making him the Vanguard of the Apocalypse.
This comes at a price however, as without all three pieces of the relic, Hitler was not protected from the undead hordes himself. As a result he became a demonic version of himself, able to control the Zombies, now with renewed confidence, Hitler once again intends on conquering the world. He addresses the zombies, in the ruins of a destroyed Berlin, un phased by the attack.
Several members of the Survivor Brigade travel to Hitler's location, and find him addressing the Zombies at a podium. Karl Fairburne sees the opportunity to finish Hitler once and for all, and takes a shot. The bullet is stopped by some psychic influence, showing a degree of his new power. Drawn to the sound of the bullet the Zombies turn to attack the group. But the Sagarmatha Relic is used to force Hitler to stand down. begrudgingly, Hitler allows the group to leave unharmed.
Hitler moves to the Hellmouth to begin the final preparations to his attack, however the Survivor Brigade return, with the complete Sagarmatha Relic. After sending countless zombies after them, none of which kill the them, Hitler resorts to finishing them himself, and allows them to get to the Hellmouth, having transformed himself into a giant demonic version of himself, he summons even more zombies to kill them, however he is eventually defeated, and reverts back to his zombie form, before being thrown into the Hellmouth, into the firey pits of hell.
- Hitler is believed to have had only a single testicle. Shooting him in Sniper Elite V2 will reveal him to have two, though he will only have one in Sniper Elite III.
- The Mission briefing says that the intel for Hitler's movement was found during his mission in Berlin, meaning that the Assassinate the Führer DLC takes place after the main campaign of Sniper Elite V2. However this would mean that it is definitely a double for Hitler, as he would have already been dead by that point.
- Hitler only has dialogue in Zombie Army Trilogy, oddly, he only speaks English.
- In Sniper Elite 3, Hitler is wearing a made-up Afrika Korps armband instead of the Swastika armband. This is probably to avoid censorship in countries like Germany.
