This suggestion is a little different from the norm. I’ve noticed a lack of categorized DMRs in Phantom Forces, and there are some guns that would fit into a DMR category but aren’t classed as such.
A new name for the DMR class, because while some definitely have traits of marksman rifles, their only difference is that they aren’t necessarily “designated.” The new class will basically cover every rifle that is built for long range, but not quite to the same extent as a dedicated sniper rifle, but with benefits like a faster fire rate, better mobility, etc.
Guns I’d want to move to the Marksman Rifle category
Reason: Lacks an infinite 1-hit headshot kill distance, though the TTK to the body is generally… alright. That and it was a DMR before and I thought it fit snugly there.
Reason: It’s more a bolt-action battle rifle than a sniper rifle, though it won’t really fit with the BRs either. So why not in the new Marksman Rifle category?
Reason: Ranged performance only beat by sniper rifles. As a bonus, it should be renamed to “1858 Target” to emphasize its new role, after the “1858 Target Carbine” name for the rifle.
Reason: The Henry doesn’t quite fit with the other battle rifles. That said, it should fit snugly with the new Marksman Rifle category. Besides that, same reason as the 1858 Carbine.
Reason: It’s flat out a faster handling SVU, at the cost of ballistics and capacity. Addition to this class is a no-brainer imo.
Reason: Its original design intent was as an assassination tool for medium range. Would fit right at home with the new Marksman Rifle class.
It’s already a best of both worlds between DMRs and sniper rifles, though the lack of super high power optics and stopping power may make it more suited for this category. Also, it was designed with being the “modern frontier rifle” in mind, rather than an actual sniper rifle.
