"The M39 Enhanced Marksman Rifle (EMR) is a highly modernized M14 designed to be utilized by USMC designated marksmen. Issued with match-grade 7.62mm NATO long range ammunition the M39 is significantly lighter and more accurate than the original M14. The M39 is limited to Semi-Automatic fire, but supports a number of accessories including a standard Rifle Scope (8x)."

— Battlelog description

The M39 EMR is a Sniper Rifle featured in Battlefield 3.


The M39 EMR can be found in the mission Kaffarov; it can be picked up from a table before entering the dark room.


The M39 EMR can be found leaning against the ammo crates in Operation Exodus with a 12x Ballistic Scope and bipod. It also features a 20 + 1 round extended magazine, an attachment normally exclusive to DICE employees.


The M39 EMR is unlocked for multiplayer when an overall score of 58,000 points is achieved in Co-Op. It is the fourth unlocked Co-Op weapon.

The M39 EMR has a capacity of 10 rounds in multiplayer. Its damage is on par with the SVD and Mk. 11, but possesses a higher rate of fire (second highest out of all the sniper rifles at 300 RPM, with the SKS having the fastest), bullet speed, accuracy, and can be used by both factions immediately. The main advantage of this is that attachment unlock speed is essentially halved, as the SVD and Mk11 Mod 0 unlock attachments separately.

Battlefield Premium members can unlock the Tactical and Woodland Oak camouflages upon completion of the M39 EMR Specialist assignment.



  • The M39 EMR's game files depict an "Extended Magazine" DICE-only unlock, possibly explaining why on singleplayer and co-op this rifle has 20 rounds in a magazine and only 10 in multiplayer.
  • In the Armored Kill gameplay trailer, this rifle can be seen equipped with a SMAW, a combination not normally possible for standard players.
  • Before the game's release, there was sighting of an M39 selectable by the Engineer kit in the kit select screen, hinting that it was possibly going to be an all kit weapon similar to the M14 Mod 0 Enhanced in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
  • The M39 EMR has the second highest bullet velocity out of the sniper rifles in the base game, only beaten by the M98B.
  • The M39 EMR's proficiency dog tag shows it with a bipod and a foregrip attached, which is not possible in game.
