Were you looking for the M392 Designated Marksman Rifle from Halo: Reach?

The M395 Designated Marksman Rifle, commonly known as the DMR, is a UNSC rifle used after the Human-Covenant war.


The M395 DMR is a gas-operated, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, shoulder-fired marksman's rifle that is equipped with a smart-linked, telescopic, rail-mounted sight for scout personnel. This rifle favors mid- to long-ranged combat, offering impressive stopping power over a long distance.[3]

Changes in the Halo 4 Weapon Tuning UpdateEdit

Main article: Weapon Tuning Update
  • Red reticle range has been slightly decreased.[4]


  • 343 Industries has stated that balancing the DMR with the BR was a challenge since there has not been more than one weapon belonging to the same faction per game.[citation needed]
  • In an early version of Halo 4 and the UNSC Infinity Briefing Packet, the M395 DMR had 15 rounds per magazine, just like the M392 DMR from Halo: Reach, but in the final game, this was reduced to 14 rounds for balancing reasons.
  • In gameplay, the blueprint shows the M392 DMR instead of the M395 DMR.

  1. Fire rate acquired by timing with a stopwatch to the nearest millisecond. Mathematics used: Number of rounds fired (N) divided by the time required to fire those rounds (T) multiplied by 60 =rounds per minute. Example: N / T * 60 =RPM
