In Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Überkommandant are like special missions, where you need to located and eliminate the elite Nazi leaders.

When using the Enigma Machine, select the Überkommandant you want to find. Each Überkommandant’s location carries an associated cost in codes you must pay. Some cost more than others.
Once you pay, you must complete a timed minigame in which you move top and bottom code wheels to match the code. If you fail, you start over and must pay more codes for another attempt. A successful attempt unlocks the location for that Überkommandant.
After you found your target location, head to the war map in the middle of the helm. Select the location and then the unlocked district within that location. This sends you into the mission to assassinate the corresponding Überkommandant.

- Basement Level 4
For this mission, go through the nuclear bunker in Manhattan in the opposite direction of the level’s Campaign mission. From your starting point at the large elevator, enter the command center control room. Clear out as many of the Soldiers in here as possible with stealth takedowns. Make your way to the elevator that takes you up. The door is blocked at the top, so use your contraption to get out.
When you reach the large room with the air vents that open and close, get ready for Drones and two SuperSoldaten. Consider which tactics work best for you. If you don’t prefer to fight head-on, try using the containers for cover as you run around the sides, pass through the air vents on the other side, and leave these enemies behind.
Once you get up to Basement Level 5, note the Kommandant Alert icon at the top. At this point, it’s turned from white to blue, indicating you’ve found the Überkommandant’s location. Fight off the numerous enemies in here if you prefer, but it’s not necessary.
Use the Constrictor Harness to crawl under this cart of containers to reach the area where the Überkommandant has barricaded himself. Finish him off and collect his Death Card, then return to Evas Hammer.

- Manhattan Subway (partial)
You have to follow a map layout similar to the Manhattan Campaign mission. From your starting point at the first subway station, advance to the next. Kill or avoid the several Soldiers at the first station. Proceed along the tracks and through cars on the right side until you’re able to enter the rooms at the end and make your way to the left subway track.
Advance along the track to the end, then through a passageway to the next subway station. Fight your way across this platform to reach the tracks on the left side, then continue through a series of passageways to a third subway station.
This last subway station is crawling with enemies, including SuperSoldaten, ÜberSoldaten, Kampfhunds, and Soldiers. Retreat into the subway tunnel if need be, in order to avoid getting surrounded. You must clear them all out before continuing. Head upstairs to the subway’s upper level to find the Überkommandant. Kill him and collect the Death Card to complete the mission.

You start out on the docks. The map is near the stairs leading from the docks, so grab it after taking out the first two Soldiers. Next, fight your way into the hotel. There are several enemies, including SuperSoldaten, along the way. You must advance through the hotel to the upper levels so you can then drop to the other side of the map. The hotel is crawling with Soldiers, so be ready for a fight.
Exit the hotel and cross to the police station. Head upstairs to reach the other end, then exit out into the streets. Fight your way through the rubble to reach the building past the second subway access, near a troop transport. Enter the building and climb the stairs to the top floor, where the Überkommandant is waiting. Eliminate him, pick up his Death Card, and return to Evas Hammer.

The Überkommandant in this mission is at the subway entrance, setting up a Zitadelle. You begin in the ruins of the State Building. Defeat the guards and deal with some Drones before dropping to ground level and clearing out the remaining enemies. Eliminate more enemies as you make your way to the main building that leads to the subway. It’s in worse shape than when you were here before. Go down the alley and get ready to use your contraption. For example, if you have the Constrictor Harness, look for a small opening to squeeze through and into the building. Watch out for Kampfhunds and Soldiers inside. There’s no need to go upstairs; just get to the door and get out.
A Zitadelle stands between you and the subway entrance. Sneak up and target its right arm the one with the Flamethrower. Destroy the Artillery Cannon arm or one of the legs to finish it off. Advance into the subway, until you find the Überkommandant. He may be in the subway or near the stairs leading to the Zitadelle control station. Kill the Überkommandant and collect the Death Card to complete the mission.

- Basement Level
You begin this mission on the top level of the penthouse. Head downstairs to the main level, where you find a couple of Soldiers with their backs to you. Either kill them silently or ignore them altogether. The key is not to sound the alarm. Two elevator shafts lead down to the basement level. The one at the back of the penthouse is your quickest route to the Überkommandant.
Drop down the shaft and move swiftly into the room on the right. Advance along the side of the basement level to avoid many of the Soldiers. A SuperSoldat is there eliminate him. Now that the alarm is sounding, use grenades and heavy weapons to clear out as many Soldiers as you can. The Überkommandant is near the counter, close to where the SuperSoldat was located. Since he’s armed with Pistole, kill him quickly, then deal with the remaining Nazis. Collect the Death Card.

To stay quiet and avoid as much fighting as possible, go down the alley behind the gas station and use the troop transport for cover. Shoot out a window to enter the gas station. There’s a Zitadelle right in the middle of the street. Either run to avoid its fire or take it out. Use the troop transport as a shield from the Flamethrower while you attack its arms and legs.
You need to get into the diner. Either shoot open the diner door, or use your contraption for a stealthier approach. For example, a small opening lets you enter with the help of the Constrictor Harness.Once inside, kill the several Klan members in the kitchen.
Head through the kitchen and then downstairs. The Überkommandant is in the basement rush down and kill him.
