The Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 is an AR-15-style carbine developed for the United States civilian and law enforcement firearms market, with the V7 variant debuting in 2015. The weapon is chambered in 5.56×45mm NATO.

The DDM4 V7 PRO appears in Battlefield 2042 as the DM7. The in-game model uses an 18 inch barrel although the loadout description claims that the barrel measures 16 inches (like the earlier V7).

"Precision over rate-of-fire. With an extended 16" barrel and flexible SOCOM RIS II mounting system, the DM7 can be configured for almost any mission."

— In-game description

The DM7 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 2042, first seen in the reveal trailer, and is the default marksman rifle.

The DM7 is a versatile marksman rifle that can be configured for various situations encountered when on the battlefield. As it is a sort of 'jack-of-all-trades' weapon, it is hard for the DM7 to excel in any certain aspect. It can appeal to newer players with a consistent 3-shot damage model when equipping High-Power ammunition.

For long-range sniping, no matter the distance, the SVK outperforms the DM7 due to its higher damage, with it always requiring one less bullet to perform a kill, a faster bullet velocity, and slightly tighter spread when aiming down sights. To balance out the two, the DM7 has an increased fire rate and a larger capacity, allowing it to fulfill its versatile nature.

When it comes to mid-range firefights, the DM7 still has poor competitiveness among its peers, as the damage of SVK is still very significant, while BSV-M has a fire rate advantage where the damage is similar. Its magazine size, while decent, can still be a detriment. The DM7 cannot unlock nor equip Extended Magazines for Standard Issue or High-Power ammunition, unlike the other marksman rifles. The only way to increase magazine capacity is through equipping Close Combat rounds, crippling its needed ranged potency but increasing fire rate, recoil control, and the aforementioned increased capacity.

It should also be taken as a reference that some assault rifles, such as SFAR-M GL and AC-42, can perform similarly at a distance of about 30 to 50 meters.

Compared to its class, it is obvious to see how the DM7 is meant to be played at medium ranges, being outperformed at long range by the punch of the SVK, and being beaten in closer ranges by the fully automatic BSV-M and the 50-round VCAR. It is fit to be used in a passive-supportive fashion, where it can pick off enemies one by one with ease.

If players try to use the DM7 at longer ranges, they will expect to go up against the SVK or long range sniper rifles. If players try to play ultra-aggressively, they will be pummeled by the likes of assault rifles like the RM68, SMGs like the PP-29, and even shotguns like the 12M Auto.

The versatility of DM7 is both its virtue and its biggest drawback, as it is impractical to switch ammunition when dealing with different engagements. To unleash the DM7‘s potential, players should have extensive experience on how to judge the situation they're in, which is obviously unnecessary when there are specialized weapon options.
