Not to be confused with the Gewehr M.95

The Barrett M95, often shortened to simply the M95, is a bullpup, bolt-action, anti-materiel sniper rifle chambered for .50 BMG (12.7x99 mm), designed by Barrett Firearms Manufacturing in 1995. 

Battlefield 2[]

"The M-95 Barret is the most massive weapon to date. It fires 12.7mm (.50) ammunition and is one of the few handheld weapons that is known to penetrate armored glass such as used in helicopter cockpits."

— In game description

The M95 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 2 as a Tier One unlock for the Sniper kit. The M95 is a bolt-action rifle, with a magazine of five rounds, similar to all of the other bolt-action rifles.

Its main niche is a more powerful cartridge, the .50 BMG. The M95 is the only small arms able to penetrate reinforced glass, damage vehicles, deal 95% damage when fired on any part of the enemy, and deal a uniquely 1.5x damage multiplier upon a headshot.

Due to its high penetration and uniquely vehicle damaging capabilities, the M95 can be used to fire upon enemy armor and even kill an active pilot, as it is the only weapon capable of penetrating helicopter and jet cockpit glass.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat[]

The M95 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat as the standard sniper rifle issued to the USMC Sniper kit. It has very high firepower and good accuracy, but a slow rate of fire due to being a bolt-action sniper rifle.


Battlefield: Bad Company[]

"A bolt action version of the M82A1 weapon, with shorter total length thanks to the bullpup configuration. The large caliber ammunition makes it a preferred sniper rifle for long range sniping as well as anti-material tasks. "

— In game description

The M95 is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company.


The M95 can be found on Crash and Grab as a collectible, accompanied by an M9. It can be found in the large communications station at the base of the mountains. However, it is possible to acquire the weapon (and the M9) in Crossing Over by picking it up from a dead Legionnaire Sniper.


The M95 is an unlockable for the Recon kit. Despite being the most powerful sniper rifle in-game, it will not kill with one shot unless the enemy has taken some damage, is shot in the head or is at close range. It can also damage light vehicles and helicopters by a considerable amount due to its .50 caliber anti-materiel round.

Battlefield Online[]

The M95 is a sniper rifle that is featured in Battlefield Online.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2[]

M95 Sniper[]

"A bolt action variant of the semiautomatic M82A1, the M95s bullpup layout reduces size but maintains overall barrel length. Its primary roles are anti-material and counter-sniper operations."

— In-game description.

The M95 Sniper is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.


The M95 can be found during Crack the Sky, on top of a watch outpost overlooking the communications building, and with a 4X Rifle Scope during No One Gets Left Behind, being used by a sniper in a watchtower during B-Company's assault on a Militia prison camp.

As with the Type 88 Sniper, the player can kill an enemy AI in one hit to any part of the body at all ranges. However, as the Type 88 Sniper has double the magazine capacity and is semi-automatic, the M95 can seem the worse of the two weapons. The M95 does not have to compensate for bulletdrop over long distances however, while the Type 88 Sniper has.


The M95 Sniper is the 7th and last sniper rifle issued to the Recon kit, requiring 34,000 points to unlock. It has the slowest rate of fire for all sniper rifles, but has incredible penetration due to the .50 Caliber anti-materiel round.

Due to the anti-materiel round, it can destroy a UAV-1 with one shot to any part. Despite its damage statistics, the M95 can only kill in one shot with a headshot, at close range, or if the enemy is already damaged.

Otherwise, it takes two shots. The M95 also has the greatest one shot kill range. It is worth noticing that, for every meter after the 19 meter mark, the damage of the weapon drops by 2.5 per meter, making closing with targets a viable tactic.

However, due to its slow aiming speed, keeping a fair distance, as well as a loaded pistol as backup, is recommended. Using magnum ammunition is a common tactic among Recon players, but this only allows the M95 to kill in one shot at slightly longer ranges.

Attaching a Red Dot Sight or 4X Rifle Scope to the weapon will not cause the bullet drop to disappear; however, the scopes help magnify the bullet drop as well as the target.

It can damage all vehicles except tanks (both light and heavy); it does 7-18% damage to helicopters and about 10% damage to light vehicles without using Magnum Ammunition. It is devastating against Personal Watercraft and Quad Bikes, providing the fast-moving vehicles can be hit.

M95 SA[]

The M95 SA's icon in the in-game menu

"The unique camouflaged SPECACT personal M95 SNIPER gives you a visual edge on the Battlefield, showing that you're a force to be reckoned with."

— BC2 Website Description

The M95 SA is also available to those who purchased the SPECACT DLC. It can be bought on Xbox live for 160MS points or through the Dr. Pepper/EA promotion, and for $1.99 at the PlayStation Store.

This also comes with a differently textured outfit. The change is purely cosmetic. The SA Variant, unlike all other SA weapons, has one single finish to it due to the standard edition of the weapon being camouflaged. It instead has a matte black finish on all maps/environments, like many other weapons in the game.



Battlefield Play4Free[]

The M95 is a purchasable sniper rifle that is featured in Battlefield Play4Free. It has the most damage for a sniper rifle on par with the M82A3. This benefit is offset by its slow bolt cycle, reload time, lower magazine capacity, and high recoil. It also is expensive at 979 P4F Funds for unlimited use after unlock.

The weapon has great potential as a sniper as it works well at medium to very long ranges and can usually kill in two shots, or a single head-shot. The weapon's bullet drop over range is also lower than other snipers, but the vapor trail is larger as the bullet it fires is also considerably larger.

The .50 BMG cartridge can penetrate all vehicles' armor except for main battle tanks. The weapon itself features a tan paint scheme on its upper frame and magazine well, similarly to the other Elite weapons.


Enhanced Scope M95[]

The Enhanced Scope M95 is a separate version of the original M95 and features a variable zoom scope with two different magnification levels. While having exactly the same stats as the original M95, the Enhanced Scope M95 has a second increased zoom that can be used by the player scrolling the mouse wheel forward when viewing through the scope. Players can also return to the default zoom by scrolling the mouse wheel backward.

The increased zoom magnifies distant targets to make them more visible to the player. However, the player will need to still account for bullet drop, even more so with the increased magnification. The Enhanced Scope M95 costs 150 P4F Funds for a day, 525 P4F Funds for a month, and 1050 P4F Fundsfor unlimited use.

Battlefield 2042[]

"This .50 caliber, bolt-action, magazine fed, anti-materiel sniper rifle is a beast. Its long range and power make it a must for enhanced stand-off effectiveness."

— In-game description.

The M95 appears in the Bad Company 2 section of Battlefield Portal for Battlefield 2042. It was introduced in Battlefield 2042: Master of Arms.



Battlefield 2[]

  • An early in-development screenshot indicated that the M82A1 was intended to be the Tier 1 unlock for the Sniper kit, until it was cut and replaced by the M95 on release.
  • The M95 is the only sniper rifle accessible in the Special Forces expansion with a reticle that has not been recolored red. By contrast, the other two sniper rifles, the M24 and SVD, have their reticles recolored for better contrast on night maps.

Battlefield Heroes[]

  • In Battlefield Heroes, the M95 is referred to as the M24 in the game files, indicating the weapon was originally going to be the M24.

Battlefield: Bad Company[]

  • In both Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the Battlelog description mislabels anti-materiel as "anti-material".
  • In Battlefield: Bad Company, the M95 is known to glitch when scoping very often; the glitch will prevent the scope from following the player's view and makes the M95 very frustrating to use.
  • The M95 is the only gun with a SPECACT counterpart to lose its camouflage.
