The advanced sniper rifle is based on the German DSR-1 bolt-action sniper rifle manufactured and marketed by, DSR-Precision GmbH. The DSR-1 is a [[wp:Bullpup|bull-pup]] rifle, a firearm in which the [[wp:Firearm action|action]] is located in the stock, allowing a shorter and lighter rifle.

The Advanced Sniper Rifle is based on the DSR-1 bolt-action sniper rifle manufactured and marketed by the German DSR-Precision GmbH. The ingame DSR-1 is the 7.62x51mm NATO variant, evidenced by its 26" barrel and the width of its magazine. Other variants are the .300 Winchester Magnum chambered with a 26" barrel, the .338 Lapua Magnum variant with a 29" barrel, a integrally suppressed, subsonic 7.62x51mm variant for covert operations and a .50 BMG variant (DSR-50) for anti-materiel applications. The DSR system is one of the most accurate rifles in the world with an unreal 0.2 MOA accuracy under favourable conditions. Like the DSR-1 in real life, the weapon in-game uses the Bullpup configuration, similar to that of the Assault SMG. The rifle feeds from the magazine behind the pistol grip, while the front magazine is in reserve for quick reloads. The weapon is also available with explosive rounds, which are incredibly powerful enough to take down most targets with one shot in single player, but the rounds are only as effective as a [[Explosive Shotgun|explosive shotgun]] round in multiplayer.
 
   
Its first encounter is during the mission [[Caught with your Pants Down]], where the player must use it to free the [[APC]] for [[Yusuf Amir|Yusuf]]. The weapon is also demonstrated by the "[[Terrorism Expert]]" during a pre-release Weazel News Report demonstrating weapons featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
+
In-game, the advanced sniper rifle is colored silver with a black scope. Its design has a fully adjustable rear stock, cheek piece and fluted barrel. It has two ammo magazines; one before the rifle's handle, and in the stock (As with other bullpup rifles). Thanks to the dual magazine, the advanced sniper can hold up to 10 rounds per magazine, unlike the [[Sniper Rifle|normal sniper rifle]], which can hold only 5 rounds per magazine.
   
After completing the mission [[Caught with your Pants Down]], it can be purchased from [[Armando Torres]] for $4,750, and $200 for every additional magazine.

The advanced rifle has a secondary ammo of explosive bullets. The explosives bullets are highly destructive and can cause significantly higher damage than the normal rounds.
