Multiplayer[edit | edit source]
The Auger DMR is the first unlocked tactical rifle in the game, available as soon as Create-A-Class is unlocked. The weapon boasts strong damage, netting consistent three-shot kills out to medium range, as well as a medium firecap that gives it a strong time-to-kill both in close-quarters and at range. Recoil is moderate, but the centerspeed is high enough that the weapon settles between shots, meaning that recoil isn't a problem except when tracking targets at long range. The weapon is particularly effective when holding down long sightlines from a distance. The magazine size of 20 rounds is perfect for the weapon, as the lower RPM and high damage means that less bullets are required to secure a kill.
Despite the Auger DMR's designation as a tactical rifle, it can be surprisingly effective in close-quarters given sufficient accuracy. Its hipfire spread is somewhat large, but is still tight enough to be used in close-quarters when spraying as a last ditch option. However, as engagements move closer to point-blank, the Auger DMR becomes increasingly dependent upon accuracy, as missing shots drastically increases the time-to-kill and makes it more likely that the player will lose the engagement.
By default, the Auger DMR comes with a scope that provides a similar level of zoom to the Recon Force. For the most part, the scope is clear and the reticle is easy to use. However, if using the rifle on a close-quarters oriented map, optics with less zoom such as the Reflex may be in order.
Zombies[edit | edit source]
The Auger DMR appears in the zombie maps Voyage of Despair, IX, Blood of the Dead, and Classified, where it's available as a weapon within the Mystery Box for 950 points. When upgraded via Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Dead Man's Refracker with the magazine size increased to 30 rounds and its ammo reserve increased to 210.
