Modern Warfare 2's Best Marksman Rifles | All DMRs Ranked ...

The Marksman Rifles are basically light snipers who have the potential to one-hit-kill with headshots, but will usually hitmarker anywhere else on the body. Here's our list of all the MMRs in MW2.

The MK2 is back!...and it's still awful. The problem with the MK2 is that you have to repeat a round after every shot, and thus your effective TTK (assuming you land every shot to the center of mass) is just too low to keep up with the vast majority of other weapons.

This is a semi-auto sniper, although it can one-shot people to the neck as well as the head, so it's not particularly difficult to kill with. Follow-up shots are particularly difficult to hit due to the recoil, so it's certainly not as straightforward to use as the heavy snipers (which have a crazy strong aim-assist).
