The Mk14 EBR (Mark 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle) is a DMR type weapon in BATTLEGROUNDS and can only be
found in air drops. Originally built for US special operations units, this rifle has seen widespread use within the US military, owing to its full-power 7.62x51mm cartridge and proven reliability. In
BATTLEGROUNDS, it sees use as a hard hitting long range rifle for putting down targets for anyone lucky enough to come across this weapon in an air drop.
The Mk14 can be seen as a bigger version of the SKS – dealing more damage per shot and with more recoil as well. The most notable difference from the SKS is the ability of the Mk14 to switch to an automatic fire
mode, enabling its wielder to deliver a huge amount of damage for different situations, whether it be house-clearing or surprise contact with another player. The high recoil limits the effectiveness of this function to close ranges however, and
the already low magazine capacity coupled with the lengthy reload duration requires the user to have a very steady aim when going full auto, particularly if there is more than one enemy around.
The bipod reduces recoil when shooting from a prone stance and thus encourages its user to locate a position from which they can fire upon targets with relative safety, delivering quick and powerful follow up shots to finish them off.
The Mk14 will deal maximum damage out to 120 meters, with minimum damage being dealt past 488 meters.
