 Battlefield 2042 is no longer receiving major updates and additional content. However, this DM7 loadout is still usable.

The big open areas of many of the Battlefield 2042 maps make the game perfect for long-range guns and snipers. Funnily enough, this is where the DM7 truly shines.

The DM7 is one of the first guns you’ll get access to when you boot up the game, and while it pales in comparison to the best SVK Battlefield 2042 loadout due to strong first-shot recoil, it can be turned into a beast with a bit of time and effort. Like most of the best Battlefield 2042 guns, the attachments right at the end of weapon mastery are often the best – and that’s certainly the case for the best DM7 Battlefield 2042 loadout.

But what makes the best DM7 build and how do you set it up? Read on for our recommendations of the best attachments, gadgets, and specialists you’ll want to use for this marksman rifle.

The best Battlefield 2042 DM7 build is:

  • Fusion Holo
  • Close Combat
  • Extended Barrel
  • BCG Grip

The DM7 is an incredibly versatile marksman rifle, even if it is held back from being the best of the best due to its poor recoil. It can be set up for pretty much any range, but given its stats are suited to medium range, we’ve built our loadout with that in mind. If you follow this build, we’d recommend having some long-range attachments on your Plus Menu, so you can get the best of both worlds while you’re in the field.

For the sight, we’ve opted for the Fusion Holo as our standard, but we’ve got the Bravo 3X on our Plus Menu in the event we need to take on enemies at range.

Ammunition-wise, Close Combat should be your default mag as it comes with 20 rounds. The High Power mag should be on your Plus Menu as a secondary as it increases the gun’s effective range.

In the barrel department, the Extended Barrel is a must – this increases your bullet velocity, allowing you to hit enemies more easily at a greater distance. If you’re forced to use your 3X scope, this is perfect here. Otherwise, the Arcom Tactical Muzzle Brake would be our choice to help rein the gun in a tad.

Lastly, the BCG Grip is our choice for the underbarrel as it helps stabilize the gun while shooting on the move. This is particularly useful as the DM7 kills enemies in around three or four shots – and we can guarantee some of those won’t be taken while you’re standing still.

With this loadout, your aim needs to be on point. If you whiff a shot here or there, you’ll find yourself looking at the respawn menu more often than not. To help you survive longer on the battlefield, we’d recommend picking the armor plates as your go-to gadget for the DM7 build. This does mean you’ll have to play as Assault though.

Why? Well, gadgets are restricted based on your class now in BF2042, unlike at launch. Other good options include the Medical Crate, Ammo Crate, Proximity Sensor, and SPH Explosive Launcher. Depending on your class and playstyle, pick your poison – there’s no wrong answer.

With the DM7 performing best in the mid-range, the choice of class and character can get a little tricky. We recommend picking Assault Mackay first and foremost to make use of this class’s gadgets and Mackay’s grappling hook to get the drop on your enemy.

However, the Support class can make use of medical and ammo boxes to stay stocked up at all times – which is never a bad thing. On the other hand, the Recon has various tools that can help you and your team keep track of the enemy team to pick them off.

So that’s our DM7 Battlefield 2042 loadout in full. Now all that’s left to do is kit everything out and head on into a match to put it to the test.
