Patched name

  • An unspecified patch changed the name of the White Death sniper rifle to Lyuda. Gamers using an un-patched .sav file or gamers currently playing the Xbox 360 version may still find "White Death" rifles. Of note is the fact that the White Death's special parts are named _Lyudmila.
  • "Lyuda" is a short form of Russian name "Lyudmila".


  • The name of White Death is a reference to Simo Häyhä, a Finnish sniper who was called the White Death by the Red Army during the Winter War. He has the highest confirmed sniper kills, 505, of any sniper in history.
  • The name of Lyuda refers to female Soviet sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko, one of the most successful female snipers in history.


  • When switched to an elemental version in first person the item card may display the wrong elemental effect chance, the true chance can be seen on the weapon card in your backpack.
