Armed Assault Wiki
« Designated marksman rifle of an Eastern origin. It is a gas operated, semi-automatic rifle of a bullpup construction. The housing is made of polymer. The rifle is chambered in 6.5 mm and therefore is most suited to ranges from 500 to 700 meters. The CMR-76 is missing both the sides and the bottom rails but is equipped with a bipod by default.

The CMR-76 is a gas operated designated marksman rifle with a short-stroke piston that is chambered to fire cased 6.5×39 mm ammunition.

It loads from 20-round magazines, and can attain a fire rate of up to 652 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 980 m/s. It supports top rail accessories and muzzle-fitted suppressors. It cannot be fitted with any flashlights or laser pointers, and eschews the need to mount underbarrel attachments as it uses an integral bipod.

Suppressed CMR-76 fitted with a Kahlia riflescope, all furnished with an Arid Hexacam camouflage finish.

The CMR-76 provides the operator with the ability to provide great sniper fire cover. It can be effectively used to suppress enemies with precision accuracy at distances of up to ~ 790 metres. It weighs the same as its NATO counterpart but is more accurate at medium-long ranges and has less recoil.

The main downside to the CMR-76 stem from its relatively small magazine capacity, which contains only twenty rounds versus the MXM's thirty or even a hundred if loaded with the MX SW's stacked magazines.

Furthermore, unlike most marksman rifles it is limited to a semi-automatic fire mode only. When it comes to attachment options, the CMR-76 only allows for sound suppressors and optical sights to be fitted. Due to the lack of a side rail, it isn't possible to mount a laser pointer or flashlight onto the weapon.


  • Black: Standard black paint finish. Primarily used by Pacific CSAT marksmen.
  • Hex: Arid Hexacam camouflage pattern.
  • Green Hex: Tropical Hexacam camouflage pattern.

  • The CMR-76 is directly based on the real-world "QBU-88" designed by the China North Industries Corporation (NORINCO) for use by the People's Liberation Army.
  • Although portrayed as the service DMR of Pacific CSAT forces, the CMR-76 (along with the CAR-95 series) uses an incorrect naming nomenclature despite the fact that other weapons like the Type 115 are designated correctly.
    • The correct designation for the CMR-76 would actually be Type 88-1 (not to be confused with the real North Korean-made "Type 88" assault rifle used by the Korean People's Army). The -1 suffix would be to designate that it is a further modernised and improved variant of the existing QBU-88.
    • Curiously, it is also the only 6.5 mm-chambered firearm which fires cased ammunition rather than caseless.
The information below details unused, pre-release or removed content.
  • Prior to Apex's official release, teaser previews showed a large compensator installed on the CMR-76's muzzle. Though the reason remains unclear, it was eventually removed by the development team once Apex neared release.
