The Mk-I EMR is a 7.62 mm designated marksman rifle used by NATO forces in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Marksmen DLC.


The Mk-I EMR is a battle rifle that is chambered to fire the 7.62×51 mm NATO round.

It loads from 20 round box magazines and can attain a fire rate of up to 600 rounds per minute on full auto, with a muzzle velocity of 940 m/s. The EMR accepts accessories on its top, side and underbarrel rails, and can also mount attachments on its muzzle.

The EMR provides the operator the ability to lay down precision firepower at medium-long ranges, while being (relatively) compact enough to use in close quarters if necessary.

Compared to its AAF counterpart, the EMR is heavier to carry and has a lower rate of fire. It does have overall better accuracy and less noticeable recoil, which combined with its higher muzzle velocity, means that the EMR is more effective at distances of up to 800 metres.

However, given the limited capacity of the EMR's magazine (incidentally a problem that all 7.62 mm battle rifles have) and its increased weight, the EMR is still not too useful in close quarters even when firing on full auto. As such, it shouldn't be brought to missions that will involve CQB fighting as its drawbacks in these situations far outweigh its upsides.

  • Camo: Spraypaint scheme designed to mimic NATO's MTP uniform camouflage.
  • Black: Matte black paint scheme.

  • Woodland: Unique woodland camouflage scheme.


  • The Mk-I EMR is based on Sig Sauer's "SG 556 DMR". Aside from using a differently shaped box magazine and being chambered to fire 7.62 mm NATO instead, it is largely identical to its real-world counterpart.
