The SDM-R is a heavily modified M16 rifle. The weapon is mostly used by Designated Marksmen to give squads greater firepower over long distances.


The SDM-R makes its lone appearance in Show Trial, where it is in the hands of Dalton and equipped with a Hybrid Sight.


The SDM-R is unlocked at level 24. It features a low fire rate with high damage and moderately high recoil. Like the other marksman rifles, the SDM-R has significantly less recoil by using the default scope. It has little damage dropoff over range and shooting through targets.

While not as powerful as a sniper rifle, it certainly comes close and has a faster mobility characteristic. Reloads however, are the slowest in class and like all of the marksman rifles, it has inadequate performance in close quarters. To stay alive, pack a sidearm or a weapon more suited to such encounters to cover your weakness.

Along with the RFB, the SDM-R is the only other Marksman Rifle that can equip a Backscatter Sight.
